This CD/DVD package was recorded at Jesus Culture's annual Encounter Conference in Sacramento's Memorial Auditorium in January. Alongside the CD, the DVD contains two additional songs "Wide Open" and "Born Of God" plus a stirring message given by Jesus Culture's founder Banning Liebscher titled Answering The Call To Prayer which concluded the conference. The album delivers a set of worship songs of the highest quality and leaders Chris Quilala and Kim Walker-Smith have clearly lost none of their prophetic power. New material includes the energetic "Sing Out" and "We Will Run" alongside intimate songs such as the beautiful title track while Jesus Culture's rendition of Redman's "10,000 Reasons" is as moving as the original. Demonstrably, Jesus Culture's relocation from Redding to Sacramento has not affected their ability to present the international Church with an anointed worship experience.
