Randy Phillips, Shawn Craig and Dan Dean have been working together since 1991 and their slick harmony and neatly produced pop has brought them a major following. This DVD is the first of their live performances. It is a collection of some of the worship songs they've recorded in recent years. As well as their own there is also some covered classics such as "Here I Am To Worship" by Tim Hughes and also "Your Love Is Amazing" by Chris Tomlin. The DVD is not only a time of worship led by three very powerful singers and intimate worship leaders but they also take time to share with the viewers snippets into their journey as songwriters and pastors. My favourite moment of the DVD was their very beautiful and powerful cover of Matt Redman's "You Are God In Heaven", a song that can be difficult to deliver to its full potential. However this try-hard trio give it their best and with a very tight band behind them and some beautiful harmonies this song simply invites you into the presence of God. With melodies and key changes better than that of Westlife themselves, this DVD is a pretty impressive item.

'We don't want it to be about 'these are great songs,' but 'this is a great God.'' Dan Dean - Phillips Craig & Dean.
This is the first DVD from Phillips Craig & Dean whose 15 year career includes 10 CD recordings and features songs that the body of Christ loves to sing. With anthems like Crucified With Christ, Mercy Came Running and corporate worship expressions like Come Now Is The Time To Worship, this trio continues to bring experience and maturity to today's modern worship movement enhanced by their 'day jobs' as pastors.
Bonus footage includes interviews, candid moments with the group and a mission trip to Kenya
