At the core of Flourish is our desire to bless our cities by stepping into areas of brokenness and bringing hope and healing through the arts.
We partner with artists, churches, & ministry organizations to help them think about how they can steward the arts and use their creative voice to uniquely bless the community around them. Our bless projects are completely supported by Flourish donors and happen at no cost to the partner. We have seen how these bless projects have been able to bring healing and hope to a specific group of people within a community, raise money to fuel ministry, raise awareness and help mobilize volunteers for a purpose, and offer a voice for and outlet for the hurting and broken to connect deeply with the arts.

Past & current bless projects
Sparrow Song | Hope Mommies
This year Katie Cobbs released her newest song, SparrowSong. Written from Psalm 84 and Matthew 6 at our last Flourish songwriting retreat, Sparrow Song is a song of hope that highlights God’s love and care for us as His children.
This release goes miles beyond just being a great new song. We partnered with Katie on this project to “give away” Sparrow Song to an incredibly powerful and meaningful ministry that we love - Hope Mommies
The mission of Hope Mommies is to bring the hope of Christ to bereaved mothers and families who have experienced miscarriage, stillbirth, or infant loss. It’s such an impactful ministry and we at Flourish have had the privilege of using music to bless these families since we released our Hope EP for them in 2018. That specific album has since been distributed to over 19,000 families who were going through the loss of a child. Wow.
This year Sparrow Song was a unique way for Flourish to join together with Katie and release a specific song with a specific purpose - to encourage the hearts of of those who have faced some of the worst pain that life can bring. The song released this past weekend during the spring Hope Mommies retreat where Katie led worship, and it has already had a substantial impact on the ladies in attendance and their families - offering the hope, peace, & comfort of Jesus through music.
Our prayer is that Sparrow Song would be heard by the people who need it most and that all of us would believe the truth of this song… “If even the sparrow finds a home, I know I’m not alone.”
RENEW Instrumental Album
We know that this season has been tough for many, and though there have certainly been times of celebration and joy, for a lot of us there has also been a heavy amount of stress and weariness. The heart behind this project is that it would be an album that invites us in to rest, re-orient our lives, and be renewed.
With a unique instrumental soundscape, RENEW is specifically crafted to serve the listener during their study / prayer / reflection time — or simply moments when you want to drown out the world and just be still. Our desire is that this would be a resource for you whenever you decide to listen.
Hope Mommies is an organization who’s sole purpose is to come alongside moms and families who have experienced infant loss, bringing comfort, encouragement, companionship and hope as they continued to walk this side of eternity without their beloved son or daughter. We have partnered with this awesome organization creating a collaborative worship album from worship leaders and artists from various churches. This album is distributed in every “hope box” that goes to a grieving family. These songs meet these families in their dark times and point them to christ, bringing them hope when they need it most. If you’d like to listen to the album you can find it on all streaming platforms.
In 2011 LC was held up at gunpoint & in that moment realized that he had to turn his life around and turn to his faith. After witnessing George Floyd’s death, LC was filled with frustration and hopelessness. Through prayer and conversation with friends, he was reminded that God has always known people would endure suffering, but in the process of fighting for liberation and reformation, hope is usually lost. LC’s desire is that through the title track, Known Before, and the other songs on his album that God will remind His people that the current pains of this world can’t compare to the glory that’s coming when He returns. Known Before released on November 19, 2020 and is available on all streaming platforms.
Awakening of Faith Mongolia
We have partnered with Paul & Kathryn, missionaries in Mongolia, to release a worship album in the native Mongolian language that will resource the young and growing church. Less than 2% of people in Mongolia have faith in Christ and the church is growing quickly but is under resourced. Paul & Kathryn’s worship album mill be some of the first quality recorded worship music in the country and will be distributed to various churches for use in congregational worship and also the equipping of worship leaders. This album released in March and is available on all streaming platforms.
