"This collection of songs is so special to us as it’s reminiscent of when we first fell in love with worshiping God.”
Naomi Raine of Maverick City Music adds, "Old Church Basement is a reminder that God is still good and the church is still God's idea. It's an invitation to come back to a community that is solely after His heart, that just wants the simplicity of the Good News that Jesus brought and the genuine love and fellowship that we can have because of Him."
