Worship songwriter Brenton Brown has lived a rather multi-cultural life. After growing up in South Africa, he studied at England’s Oxford University, and now lives in Malibu, California. Brown explains, “I was studying politics and law in Cape Town. After being confronted by the power of the gospel at a Bible study, I threw my lot in with a vibrant, multicultural church on campus while I continued to study.” After finishing his degree, Brown moved to England to attend Oxford as a Rhodes Scholar, which is where he became involved with the Vineyard worship movement.
Brenton Brown was then appointed Worship Pastor for Oxford’s local Vineyard Church, and recorded three Vineyard albums in that time. Since then, he has released three solo worship albums with Survivor Records: EVERLASTING GOD, BECAUSE OF YOUR LOVE and ADORATION. His track ‘Everlasting God’ has been picked up by churches around the globe, and won Brown an ASCAP (American Society of Composers) Award for being one of the most performed songs in the U.S. during 2007. The song has also been recorded by worship artists Lincoln Brewster and Chris Tomlin.
Cool! We've played and sung a number of Brenton Brown's songs during the time that we've led worship, and this is one of the ones that really speaks to us:
Roll on January 2011!
