THE STORY BEHIND THE SONG

In January of 2016, we launched into a season of our church called Waymaker. A Waymaker is someone who removes obstacles and builds bridges for people to get where they need to go and be who God is leading them to become. Our God has made a way for us and has created us to do the same for others.

For this Waymaker season, we wrote a song to declare who we believe our God is, what he has done, and how he is able to do more than we could hope or imagine when we trust in him.

Isaiah 43:19 “See I am doing a new thing!… I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.”

  3. Upload your video to Youtube and submit it (after you upload your video, under private settings, select "UNLISTED" and label your video "MY NAME - BRENTWOOD AUDITION." Then email it to auditions@brentwoodchurch.org)
