With a heart for worship and his pulse on what listeners need to hear with every changing season, Kristian Stanfill’s chief priority isn’t being your standard-issue rock star. Instead, what drives his unique artistry is writing encouraging, hopeful songs for the hurting and discouraged that ultimately point to God’s powerful ability to heal and restore the heartbroken.
With his latest song, "My Heart Is Yours," off the upcoming live album Passion: Take It All (April 29, 2014), Kristian continues to lead others into worship. As a praise leader at Atlanta’s Passion City Church, Kristian’s heart for his local church is definitely apparent in his recent congregational-friendly songs including “Day After Day,” “Always” and “Lord Almighty.”
Often teaming up with fellow worship artists Chris Tomlin, David Crowder and Matt Redman at Passion Conferences, Kristian believes the key to being an effective worship leader is simply listening—and following—the Holy Spirit’s lead. It is something that he believes can forever transform the corporate praise experience.
Continuing to tour extensively, as well as play in his local church, Kristian’s full-length album entitled Mountains Move hit stores and online outlets back in January 11, 2011, receiving praise from critics and fans alike.
Kristian Stanfill's single "One Thing Remains," is a powerful worship anthem off the live recorded album Passion: White Flag (March 13, 2013), which features a variety of artists including: Chris Tomlin, Christy Nockels, Matt Redman, David Crowder Band and Charlie Hall.
"Everyone knows what it feels like to have a mountain ahead of them. We
are all going to face though times," explains the singer. "It's such a moment of peace for people to say that one things remains through it all, and that's the love of God."
Kristian is also featured on the live album Passion: Let The Future Begin (March 12, 2013), leading a variety of worship songs, including: "The Lord Our God," "In Christ Alone," "Children of Light," and "Come To The Water." He can also be found on the Passion: Let The Future Begin Tour.
The singer recently received 6 nominations for the 44th annual Dove Awards, including “Song of the Year” category and “Praise & Worship Song of the Year” category for his tune, “One Thing Remains."
