We are pleased to announce that the 2013 ZOE Worship Conference, “Here With Us”, will be October 25-27 in Nashville, TN at the Otter Creek Church! This year we will be focusing on the season of Advent. Christmas… the happiest time of the year? Often we feel pressure to feel that way based on the way the media and movies portray the holidays. However, Advent teaches us what “God with us” really means. Advent is about waiting… waiting on the Lord, watching for Him, believing in Him… even when He is silent. Advent celebrates the absolute truth that God is faithful and that His steadfast love is present, even in difficult times, to bring a deep peace unlike anything we’ve ever experienced. Come and join us as we celebrate Emanuel, God with us. Mark your calendars and plan to attend this year’s conference October 25-27 in Nashville! ZOE will be releasing a new CD this fall to fit with our theme on Advent. We are excited and hope to see all of you there! More information about the conference will be released in the coming months. In the meantime, if you have any questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
From the entire ZOE family… May God richly bless you in 2013!
If your ministry year has been like mine, you know that money has been tight. It’s a challenging economy and churches have been hit hard. I’ve found myself second guessing every single purchase. Can we afford $9.99 for another Passion CD? Is this video really strong enough to justify spending $19.95 if I’m only going to use it once? I’m guessing you can relate.
That inner struggle has been especially fierce when it comes to special events and conferences. I absolutely love the spiritual boost I get from attending annual gatherings where the worship is great and the fellowship is greater. But I’ve had to cut back. I think we all have. I’ve stayed home. And I’ve missed something.
I know there are some of you who have had an ongoing inner debate about the ZOE conference since it was first advertised in the spring. It’s been three years since the last one. You can still remember the incredible weekends you’ve spent in Nashville or other cities around the country, learning the new ZOE songs, hearing from Mike Cope, Randy Harris and others, going to helpful classes that gave you new tools for your ministry. You smile when you think of the great conversations you’ve had with people who share your unique call to ministry in a unique tribe. Most of all, though, you remember the worship. There’s just nothing quite like it.
You want to come. But money’s tight.
I want to encourage you to come anyway. Sure you can pick up the CD on iTunes or through the online store. Yes, you can download the scores through fearless4you.com. The one thing you can’t get by staying home, however, is the EXPERIENCE. If you’ve been to a ZOE conference before, you know what I’m talking about. You need to be here precisely BECAUSE it’s been a rough year for many of us! That’s why we chose the topic “Faithful.” For one unforgettable weekend in Georgia hundreds of us will come together and celebrate a God who is bigger than our biggest struggles. I want you to be a part of that.
It’s not too late. Come join us.

After nearly 3 years, The ZOE Group is proud to announce the release of the newest ZOE worship project “Faithful.” The entire project has been bathed in prayer, and it was a profound gift for the ZOE singers to be back in the studio recording these songs. We pray that this collection of songs will help bring you and your church closer to the throne of God in worship. The project is available now in CD form in the ZOE Online Store, or for digital download at iTunes, Amazon.com, and other digital music stores.
We’re excited to announce that registration for the 2012 ZOE Worship Conference is now OPEN! Our team has been working hard to create a one-of-a-kind weekend that will be a blessing to your church.
This will be our first major conference in three years and we are SO excited to be coming back together with friends from around the country for a time of great worship, inspiring classes and unmatchable fellowship.
In addition to the new music we’ll learn at the conference from the new ZOE CD Faithful, we’re adding an opportunity to discover even more new songs with an optional pre-conference version of New Music Atlanta, the new music showcase we started in Atlanta last fall.
For more information, visit the conference registration site.
We are excited to announce that the new ZOE project, “Faithful” is finally completed! We want to especially thank all of our donors who gave financially to help us make this project happen. Through the selfless hearts of all of our donors, we were able to raise $28,000!! Thank you for believing in our mission and walking with us as we continue to minister through music. We absolutely could not have done it without all of you and are deeply grateful.
“Faithful” will first be available at a very special worship night led by ZOE at Otter Creek Church in Nashville, TN on Wednesday evening August 15th, at 7 pm. Feel free to call our office for more information.
The CD will be available in our online ZOE store for $15 beginning on August 20th, and will be released to iTunes and other digital stores at a later date.
Join us Wednesday, August 15th at Otter Creek Church and be the first to purchase your new CD! Thank you so much for your continued support!
Although we were slightly under our goal of raising $30,000, thanks to the huge generosity of many ZOE supporters, we were able to raise enough funds to begin the recording process for a brand new ZOE worship project (more information to come). For those of you who contributed with prayers and financial support, we are deeply grateful. And we pray that the ZOE worship resources will continue to minister in your lives and in the lives of your churches.
What We Need
Over the last 15 years, ZOE conferences, recordings, and resources have ministered in ways we may never fully understand. From church services to college campuses, celebrations to funerals, lectures to overseas missions, the music has evolved into an evangelistic presence all over the world. Literally thousands of churches from a variety of affiliations and backgrounds are using ZOE arrangements and recordings in their church services every week.
As you know, the ZOE Group ministry recently went through a time of transition and is now short on the funds needed to create further recordings. We have new, fresh songs ready to record, but we lack the funds to get the production off the ground. If ZOE’s recordings and resources have blessed you and/or your church in the past, please consider sharing with us today.
ZOE needs at least $30,000 to begin creating new worship resources. This money will be used to cover the various costs in producing new albums and sheet music: arranging, engineering, studio recording, mixing, mastering, manufacturing, art design, inventory, website, online promotion, office administration, etc. ANY AMOUNT YOU CAN DONATE IS WELCOME!
All donations are tax-deductible and will be acknowledged in writing. And if you or your church can dig a little deeper to help with a larger gift, we have certain perks to offer. For more information, please visit the ZOE Fundraising Campaign site.
Thank you so much for your prayers and support!
Mark your calendars for The ZOE Group’s first full blown conference in 3 years! The conference will be held October 12-14, 2012 at Campus Church in Norcross, GA. More info to come soon.
The ZOE Group is proud to announce the release of its first compilation project, “Where Joy and Sorrow Meet.”
The digitally-remastered album features some of ZOE’s most celebrated songs, including ones rejoicing in the mountaintop moments and those that get us through the darkest valleys.
The 2-CD set is available now for $15 in our online ZOE Store. ZOE’s next project is scheduled to release Fall 2012.
