As Christmas approaches, we've got a bit of news about the upcoming tour. Our guitarist, Benj Lawrenz will not be able to tour with us due to an upcoming surgery for his wife Maureen. Benj will be taking some time off to take care of his family while his wife is recovering. We pray for a successful operation and for her speedy recovery.
We look forward to when Benj is once again able to join us in the new year.

Can you do us a favor? We recently released "In Christ Alone" as a single on iTunes and would like you to write a review and rate the song.
Reviews and ratings help us out by making our CDs and songs show up in more search results and will hopefully help others to discover our music ministry. As many of you know, Koiné records, distributes, and tours as an independent artist. We have no record label or representation. This means we depend entirely on our fans to support us and help spread the word about Koiné to others.
If you've got a moment, go ahead and rate and review any or all of our other albums as well. We would really appreciate it! Thanks!

We are excited once again to have artist Jason Jaspersen creating the cover art for "In Christ Alone." This artwork brings ancient themes of law and gospel to light in vibrant color and bold brushwork. It is in Christ alone that we have a solution to our greatest problems. This piece visually addresses Jesus’ relationship with our sin. For more information about symbolism in this artwork have a look at this blog post. If you would like to own a print for yourself and help support the work of Jason Jaspersen click here.

Koine's fifth hymn collection (Vol. V) is entitled Visit. Based on the german idea that worship is a "Visit" with God, Koiné highlights a number of hymn writers that have "visited" with God through their creative work by singing the conversation of the Church. Koiné explores this musical space with 18 new tracks marveling at God's majesty when we desire to "Visit" Him in His house.

Sacrifice with Shouts of Joy, a meditative on Psalm 27, reminds us that as young adults we don't have to be afraid of living in a dark, lost world because the LORD is our light, giving us direction and filling us with faith, hope, and love. The song emphatically calls faith to action reflecting David’s words from the Psalm and echoing his earnest plea,
One thing I ask from the Lord, this only do I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life to gaze on the beauty of the Lord and to seek him in his temple. -Psalm 27:4
