On June 21, East-West hosted The Worship Gathering at the House of Blues in Downtown Dallas. It was a God-glorifying time as over 1,200 guests were in attendance to hear Noah James, John Mark McMillan, and Housefires lead us in worship.

At the concert, guests were asked to join East-West’s work in South Asia. Today, 283 people have responded to the invitation … just shy of the 300 gifts needed to unlock a $25,000 matching fund given by generous friends of the ministry.
If you or someone you know would like to give to this region, you can still help us reach 300 gifts and release the match funds by clicking “give” below.

The original writer and performer of “King of My Heart,” John Mark McMillan has been producing music since 2010 and is most notable known as a Platinum-selling songwriter. He’s toured with NEEDTOBREATHE, Mat Kearney, and Josh Garrels.


You know them best for hit worship songs “Good Good Father” and “Build My Life.” In 2014, they emerged out of a worship community at Grace Church Midtown in Atlanta, Georgia. Since then they’ve released four live albums.

Noah James

Those who attended The Worship Gathering last year are familiar with our opener, Noah James—a local artist who leads worship at FiveStone Community Church in Garland, Texas. Last fall, Noah joined Rend Collective on tour around the United States.
