The Music of Enfield – A Worship Band You Really Need to Know
As part of my ministry as a worship pastor, one aspect of my responsibilities to my congregation is that I have to listen to lots of music. That’s like telling an addict that he now gets paid to buy and use his addiction of choice. Well, someone has to do it, right?
I really want to encourage you to become a fan of Enfield. They are a band based out of Grace Community Church in Sun Valley, CA (where John MacArthur pastors), get their name from the location (Enfield, Connecticut) where Jonathan Edwards preached his most famous sermon, “Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God” in July 1741.
Their modern arrangements of old hymns have really caught my attention. You can listen to their version of Isaac Watts’ “Jesus Shall Reign” here. You can watch a video of them below. It’s not the best video, but the MP3 is a studio recording. And, I am not sure why the video is mostly of the drummer, Dave Zimmer.
