The Museum strives to impact this generation by leading people to encounter Jesus Christ in worship through music.

It might not sound like it, but the Atlanta based worship band “The Museum” is actually named after a revolution. During a 2008 musical mission trip to Romania, drummer Josh Kirk found himself at a ceremony commemorating the end of Communism in that country twenty years earlier. “There was a small, humble museum near the square that told the story,” he recalls. “Turns out it was a group of Christians that actually brought about that political and social revolution.”

Twenty years later the political changes were celebrated but the spiritual center of the revolution had been mostly forgotten. There was little evidence of Christian influence in the culture. “That little museum remained though, offering a glimpse into the kind of faith that can turn a nation upside down.”

Shortly thereafter, singer and songwriter Ben Richter formed the band that would explore the big themes of their lives – faith, justice and worship – with an eye toward waking the church to the incendiary role it should be playing in the world. “We were, and are, all worship leaders,” Richter explains, “and we have a passion for the local church. But as much as we love to sing together on Sunday morning, we felt a calling to bring songs that would challenge the Church to live out lives of worship all week long.”

The Museum strives to impact this generation by leading people to encounter Jesus Christ in worship through music.

This vision was born out of the local church and guided by the call in Micah 6:8 to act justly, love mercy and walk humbly with our God. As Christ followers and musicians we want to craft songs and lead worship experiences that inspire people to live a life of worship. Our hope is that our worship would never be confined to the walls of a church, but would lead us to serve the world around us and love people in the way Christ has called us to.
