Deluge is an emerging sound of passionate youth worship from Bethany World Prayer Center in Baton Rouge,Louisiana. Their self-titled, debut album was recently named by Christianity Today Magazine as one of the “Favorite Worship Albums of 2008.” The album was recorded at Bethany’s annual “Upside Down” youth conference, with over 7,000 radical youth attending. Recorded live over six nights, Deluge includes 12 original tracks. It features wildly energetic anthems like “Make It Loud” and the deeply intimate offerings like “Worshiping You.”
Deluge’s focus and aim is to point worshipers to the one true God through Jesus Christ, and to see His glory displayed. The album features lead vocalist/songwriter Jonathan Stockstill who also serves as worship leader for Bethany. In 2006, Jonathan and the Deluge band were featured on the Bethany Live recording Let the Church Rise.
