Inspired by world events and what the Gettys see as an urgent need for global missions and increased congregational singing.
The title hymn of the album, "Facing a Task Unfinished," was featured in a global hymn sing on February 21, 2016 as 1.1 million believers in 100 countries sang the song on a single day!
