New York Worship Leader Ben Ward Releases 'This Changes Everything'

Apr 19 2018

Long Island, NY based Worship Leader and Singer/Songwriter Ben Ward has released 'This Changes Everything', taken from his latest EP 'The Sound and the Stirring'.


"Jesus changes everything. His presence, His death, His forgiveness, His resurrection, His power. Nothing can stand in the way of His goodness", explains Ben. "That's what this song is about. It's a response to the timeless truths we confess as Christians week after week, day after day. We declare Him in His glory and He changes everything. Nothing's the same. Life replaces death, hope takes the place of hopelessness. Love casts out fear.

'This Changes Everything' was written out of my time as worship pastor at Shelter Rock Church on Long Island, NY. Seeing God move among us as we begin and continue to believe in Him - this is how He transforms every part of who we are."

"I love to lead people into the presence of God. This is one of the things that make me come alive. My Youth Pastor asked me in eighth grade to lead some songs with my guitar (which I barely played!) at our Wednesday night meeting. That set me on a course to fall in love with worshipping Jesus and seeing people go deeper into His presence. I also love to see musicians and creative artists grow in their gifts and craft…I thrive on helping people grow spiritually, creatively, relationally.

I majored in songwriting at Berklee College of Music in Boston where I was a winner of the BMI Foundation’s John Lennon Award and the Vince Gill Award. I spent several years in Nashville writing all kinds of songs."
