Hillsong United began as Hillsong Church’s youth ministry band. Their 1999 debut, Everyday, established their creative template: each album was recorded live at the annual October youth conference Encounterfest.
With the familiar faces of worship leaders Joel Houston, Jad Gillies, JD and Matt Crocker upfront, the UNITED team has become an evolving collaboration of pastors, worship leaders, musicians and songwriters, all bound by the common goal of giving voice to a generation who is passionate about God.
”Our prayer is that people everywhere would catch this desire and run with it in the same way! Knowing God is with them, God is in control, and He will have His way.” – Joel Houston
