INSIDE THE MUSIC

"RESCUE STORY"

Zach struggled with a lot of things in his past. One was understanding that God does love him, even in his darkest moments. Sharing about how that love was the catalyst for his new song, Zach reveals...

"When I realized that in my darkest, loneliest places, God was there with His hands stretched out waiting for me to come home, that's what led me to write the song 'Rescue Story.'"

MORE FROM ZACH:

During a recent visit to the Nashville, Tennessee based Harding Prison, Zach and his team spent time with the men there filming music videos and testimonials. The project culminated with the release of the EP Survivor: Live From Harding Prison and represents a circling around to a previous milestone in his life...

"A little over five years ago, I visited a prison in Arkansas with my wife and shared the story of what God was doing in our lives. What I experienced that day is something I will never forget. God broke my heart for these men and women ... through God, there is truly freedom behind bars. Through Him and only Him, we are survivors.” - Zach Williams

ABOUT ZACH WILLIAMS

Husband, father, singer, songwriter, worship leader, campus director at his home church in Arkansas and, most recently, added to Zach's list of titles is recording artist.

Never in his wildest dreams did Zach think he would be in this place of writing and recording music in the Christian music industry, especially from years of hard living on the road while in a rock & roll band. He thought his life was fulfilling and he was doing what he had always wanted to do, but that left him empty, lonely, and further away from God and his family than ever before. For years he sought meaning and fulfillment in the unhealthy, and sometimes dangerous, lifestyle he was living. 

Zach eventually found refuge in God again after spending countless late nights on the road talking with a band mate about God, faith and what their lives could actually be like beyond the band.

“Even though I grew up going to church every Sunday as a kid, even though I knew right from wrong and said I was a Christian, there was absolutely nothing about the way I was living that reflected these things,” Zach shares. “It took a trip to Europe in 2012 to stop me dead in my tracks and show me just how lost I really was.” That year, with his wife by his side, his faith became real to him and he found renewal by dedicating his life to Christ. He hasn’t looked back since.
