After nearly a decade in hiatus, officials with the Church of God (Cleveland, Tenn.) have announced the re-launch of SpiritSound Music Group (SMG).
Before becoming a part of the Church of God International Offices in Cleveland, SMG previously operated as a department of the denomination’s Pathway Press where leaders through the years with SMG coordinated music events and conferences, supervised production of musical and choral selections, and oversaw the production of the Church Hymnal, one of the most popular hymn books of all time. Pathway continues to produce the Church Hymnal today.
To its credit, SMG has copyrights to over 16,000 published songs, the contracts of which are housed at the International Offices. Many of the sons and musicals have been nominated for Dove Awards. The SMG debut will take place in early 2022 during the upcoming Music Nashville set for January 10-12, 2022 at Christ Church in Nashville.
“We are very excited to resurrect such a valuable ministry of the Church of God,” stated H.W. Dusty Wilson, CEO of SpiritSound. “There is such a rich heritage of worship music and artists who have contributed to the past success of SpiritSound. We look forward to this re-launch and the impact it will make across the Christian and gospel music industry.”
