Philadelphia Area Members Record Revelation CD
Story by Pennsylvania Conference Staff
Jennifer Schwirzer, Lee Givhan and Delon Lawrence, are collaborating on a musical recording focused on Revelation.
Over the past three years, God has worked mysteriously to lead several Pennsylvania Conference members living in Philadelphia to focus their creative energies on the mysterious book of Revelation. They are writing and producing songs, creating art and preparing talks to culminate in a concert tour and prophecy series this fall.
It all began when Jennifer Schwirzer, a member of the Chestnut Hill church, felt impressed to study the book in depth. She says, “I’d always had a hard time grasping Revelation. God impressed me to put the various sections to poetry. I write songs as an act of worship; this would be my morning devotional exercise.”
Several months later, Schwirzer had a better grasp of all the beasts, women, wars, songs and stories of Revelation. She also had a small book’s worth of poems, some of them put to music.
In 2010 Schwirzer met Delon Lawrence and Lee Givhan, members of the Pennsylvania Youth Challenge. Lawrence aspires to be a record producer. Givhan is a spoken-word artist and singer. Some time after they met, God impressed Schwirzer to ask the young men to work with her to record the Revelation songs. They gladly accepted.
Then during the process of recording the songs, Schwirzer agreed to present an evangelistic series this fall at her church. The subject matter? The book of Revelation.
The nearly completed CD, titled The Lamb Wins, has grown to include more than 20 performers. The concert tour throughout the Columbia Union will begin in August. The evangelistic campaign will begin in October at the Chestnut Hill church. To learn more, click here to view their Facebook page and here to view their first video, “A Thousand Years.”
