The Binions have been in ministry together for over 20 years and have already made 15 albums together. In September 2018 they launched Dwell Ministries as a training centre at Dwell Ranch, Fairview, Texas and that has led to this double album, which was recorded live in front of 500 people and is the first release outside the umbrella of their previous Covenant Worship. It's very much about the importance of spending quality time with God. There are six brand new songs and seven previously recorded ones. All the tracks are available to watch on the internet and it's great to see it happening live. The quality of the production is impeccable and the Binions can certainly write a catchy tune and know how to arrange it to maximum effect. The lyrics are safely biblical and very praise-focussed. They kick off with "My Soul Follows"; an attractive tune sensitively set and it builds up nicely to display the warm clear voices. Their daughter MDSN (aka Madison, who is also recording as a solo) makes a welcome contribution on "Hunger", which she also co-wrote. Also ringing the changes vocally are guests BJ Putnum on "Joy Never Ending" and Calvin Nowell on the final song "Be Still And Know".

David and Nicole Binion have been serving the Church for two decades, leading worship, writing, recording (Sand & Stars & Take Heart from Covenant Worship as well as their own album The Sound Of Heaven) and teaching.
After a 10-year season as worship pastors at Covenant Church in Dallas, the couple felt God reawakening a long held vision to raise up and mentor a new generation of worshipers and worship leaders. Launching Dwell Ministries last year, David and Nicole now host Dwell nights across the US.
The couple also hosts TBN's flagship Praise! program and it is with TBN that they are recording their first Dwell album, featuring special guests William McDowell, Tasha Cobbs Leonard, BJ Putnam and their daughter and fellow Integrity recording artist, MDSN.
