Desperation Band

The Desperation Band, founded by Jared Anderson, Jon Egan, and Glenn Packiam, is part of the Desperation ministry of New Life Church in Colorado Springs, Colorado. All three were associate worship pastors at the church serving under senior pastor Brady Boyd and executive worship pastor Ross Parsley. They each led worship for different services of the church’s ministries: Jared for the Sunday night service; Jon for _tag, the high school group; and Glenn for theMILL, the college group.

Jared and Glenn have transitioned out of the band, which is now led by Jon Egan and supported by Dan Egan, Bob Howard, Bekah Wagoner, Eric Todd, and Jared Henderson. The band’s newest release, Light Up the World (2009), carries a vision for aiding orphans and widows around the world and challenging young people to do the same.

The band has been featured at both Creation East and Kingdom Bound. They have also been featured at Teen Mania’s Acquire the Fire events in stadiums around the country. Their albums appear on Integrity’s Vertical Music label and feature high-energy, passionate new worship songs that convey the hunger for God of a young generation.

    Why is the name 'desperation'? Why not Hope?Faith? Because Jesus never give us desperation. Hmmmmm.

    I do believe that desperation, at least in this case, is synonymous with passion and longing. Therefore, I don't see why there is a debate on whether or not the name is correct or not. I mean, Jesus was satisfied by God, yet He still was desperate for God to move, to cleanse, and to redeem creation. I mean, why is there even an argument.

    "The day in which I called unto Your, You answered me; You made me bold and strengthened my soul." Ps. 138 I would call that a longing, or a desire of my heart and soul :). The fact that one has felt desperate does not mean he/she is desperate, in the same way that the fact that one feels like sinning does not mean he/she is a sinner. "Come unto me all you who are weary, or burdened, or tired, and I will give you rest :)," Jesus said. Blessings!

    i dont think that makes the name of the band a lie. the band name represents a desperation after more of God/a God-filled life. you either took the verse out of context or don't understand the idea of being desperate for God.
