Jennifer Coleman-Lawyer aka “Jenni Love” of JoyNet Radio was the host for "Restored for Worship IN MOTION" Cycle 1. The stage was set and the RFW (Restored for Worship) Band set the atmosphere with melodious sounds of worship. Bishop D. Anthony Robinson of Changed Life Ministries in North Little Rock, Arkansas called the event to order with opening remarks, scripture and prayer, followed by an introduction of the host by Anjelica Records CEO, Francez Castro.
The panel of judges was an “All Star” cast of professionals from the Central Arkansas area who scored the performers on specific criteria. The lineup of dancers and mimes included “Heart of Worship,” Angel Miles, “Judah Praise,” Beneal Smith, “Dancers for Messiah,” Latrice Buckner, Darrius Orr, “God’s Love” & “Spiritual Warriors.”
After an evening of worship through movement, the Artist, Kevin Riley, took the stage and ministered two songs from his project. Accompanied by the musical group, “Determined” in addition to Melody King and Tina Johnson, Riley ministered one of his album favorites, “Created for Worship.” His second selection was a requested fan favorite, “Via Dolorosa.”
Once scored were tallied, the winners for the evening were announced. Third place winner who performed to the song “So Amazing” was Latrice Buckner. Second place winner who also performed to the song “So Amazing” was Beneal Smith. The first place winner for the first cycle of “Restored for Worship IN MOTION” was “Spiritual Warriors” who performed to the title track, “Restored for Worship.”
The Spiritual Warriors is a group of young people from St. Paul A.M.E. in Arkadelphia who minister through dance and drill team. The group was formed in the summer of 2008 under the direction of Katrina Harvey. The group started with seven children between the ages of 7-11. Today, that number has grown to 17 members between the ages of 8-18. Their purpose and mission is to bring God’s message to life through movement and to equip the members with the Bible knowledge, lessons, and foundation that they will need as they grow older. The team members are being equipped to put on the whole armor of God and stand up as Spiritual Warriors for Christ.

THE ULTIMATE WORSHIP RELEASE
Sunday, July 20, 2014
EPIC, SOUL STIRRING, MANNA, SATISFACTION...that was the takeaway from Sunday Night’s Ultimate Worship Release that was held at the SUMMIT CHURCH in North Little Rock, AR by Kevin Riley Ministries. Worshipers gathered from all over to Experience the Atmosphere with Pastor Kevin Riley. It was a release, indeed, with Pastor Kaderick Jones serving as Host/Worship Leader followed by local artists, groups and psalmists including Roswald Murchison and Rejuvenated for Christ, Psalmist LaTaveya Franklin and Evangelist Faye Mosby. Accenting the atmosphere of worship through the ministry of dance were Minister Jonathan Womack & Shayla Wilson aka Heart of Worship, Minister Marlean Acker and Minister Rose Wiggins. The anointing that they released into the atmosphere was nothing short of amazing!
Not to be mistaken for a concert, The Ultimate Worship Release lived up to its title allowing worshipers to maximize on this golden opportunity to marinate in the Presence of the Lord. Pastor Kevin Riley took the stage and ministered under the power and authority of the Holy Spirit with familiar ballads like HE’S STILL GOD and JESUS YOU ARE along with his newest anthem IN AWE OF YOU. The anointing was inescapable as he sang and spoke into the lives of God’s people.
In her intro, Yolanda Yogi Harris says, "I thought I knew Gospel Music...I thought I had the industry down pat, until I met Kevin Riley. Everything from Riley's itinerary to winning awards can be described in one word - EFFORTLESS! That’s what happens when you allow God to be smarter than you. While others are chasing success, Riley is chasing the heart of God and success happens.”
Riley’s heart is so pure in his service for God that The Ultimate Worship Release was a FREE event, there was no offering taken up nor were there any product sold. Instead, Riley blessed all attendees with a FREE copy of his Freshman project, JUST ME and YOU as well as FREE download cards for his two newest singles, HOW CAN I and IN AWE OF YOU.
Kevin Riley Ministries is a refreshing, yoke destroying, purpose driven, God-dependent, global impacting gift to the body of Christ. Anticipation for the next worship release is already building.
