Nashville, TN (PRWEB) April 11, 2012
Led by a strong desire to make a studio quality band accessible to any size church in an affordable way, founder Lee Bridges has developed an app specifically for church and worship leaders. ‘Worship Band in Hand’ hit the Apple App Store April 10th and will include favorite songs like "Our God," "Hosanna," "Mighty to Save," "Revelation Song" and many, many more.
“Our goal with Worship Band in Hand is to transport a studio-quality worship band into churches everywhere. We want to offer a flexible backing band that can shrink or grow to fill in the gaps of a church’s shrinking or growing worship team,” said Bridges. “Worship Band in Hand works along side live musicians to create a full worship experience that can be tailored to fit a church’s specific and unique needs.”
According to the 2009 National Congregations Study by Duke, there are 177,000 protestant churches in America with less than 100 people in their congregation every Sunday. Congregations of this size often have a difficult time filling a full worship band.
Rather than requiring a special computer setup and charging a premium for songs, Worship Band in Hand works with devices that many churches already have access to- the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. It provides Church and Worship Leaders with a backing band that can be tailored to fit their needs. With Worship Band in Hand worship leaders have the ability to doing the following: fill their worship band with only the instruments they need, mix their working backing band just the way they like it, create and edit sets lists and change the key of the songs to fit their voice. It also gives worship leaders the freedom to not have to scramble to fill a position in the band when the drummer cancels last minute and the ability to make room for a pianist by just muting the keyboards in Worship Band in Hand.
One of the most unique traits of Worship Band in Hand is that the app itself is free. Songs are available in the in-app store for only $4.99-9.99.
Being mindful of each churches budget was especially important to founder Lee Bridges. “We understand that many churches that will find Worship Band in Hand useful do not have large budgets, and we do not wish to put financial strain on any church.”
Worship Band in Hand launched April 10th and are available for purchase in the Apple App Store. For more information about Band in Hand visit http://worshipbandinhand.com/
