MATT MAHER: Songwriting, Worship, & Unity in the Church

Popular worship leader, recording artist, and songwriter Matt Maher is a deep thinker. Once you listen to this heartfelt interview, you’ll easily understand where songs like Christ Is Risen, Lord, I Need You, Your Grace Is Enough, and many more have come from in the deep heart of Matt Maher.

“I was blown away with my talk with Matt,” says show host, John Chisum. “We actually talked a lot longer than we could release in the final edited version, but I found myself drawn deeper into my own faith and wanting to feel even closer to Christ through this episode. I think everyone who listens to it will feel the same.”

Since his 2008 major label debut, Matt Maher has become a staple in the artistic and songwriting community. A nine time-GRAMMY® nominee and three time-GMA Dove Award winner, he has garnered multiple radio successes, writing and recording songs such as his Top 5 CCLI song “Lord, I Need You” and the chart-topping radio single “Because He Lives (Amen).” Along with other hits such as “Hold Us Together,” “Christ Is Risen,” “All The People Said Amen,” and “Your Grace Is Enough,” Maher has written or co-written five No. 1 radio singles. 

Penning numerous songs recorded by Chris Tomlin, Crowder, Third Day, Jeremy Camp, Matt Redman, Hillsong, Casting Crowns, Meredith Andrews, Jesus Culture, Jars of Clay, and Passion, he’s had multiple titles on the CCLI chart’s Top 500 list. With career album sales of more than 550,000 units to date, Maher was recently awarded his first RIAA Platinum certification for his popular single “Lord, I Need You.” He’s released nine studio albums, including his 2017 GRAMMY-nominated album Echoes. He also released his first Christmas album and children’s book, both titled The Advent of Christmas, during the 2018 holiday season.

“What I think you’re going to love most about this conversation with Matt is how it will encourage you to go a little deeper in your own faith, whether you write songs or not,” continues Chisum. “Our show is about more than songs – – it’s about a better life – – and Matt helps us gain a fresh perspective on how to have a better life as we seek the heart of God in fresh ways, as well as seek a fresh perspective on what it means to be part of the Body of Christ.”
