Why do you live in NYC?
One of the best-known and respected recording artists in the Christian music industry, Moen has earned a worldwide reputation for his work as a songwriter and worship leader who has helped shape today's modern worship landscape.
As a platinum-selling recording artist, he has recorded more than 17 albums which have sold more than 5 million units. But it's his newest release, I Believe There Is More, which has become his most personal project to date.
But I've realized over the last few years in particular that I needed to pay more attention to what God had originally called me to be…a worship leader and songwriter. Even in the midst of awards, accolades and success, it is most notably Moen's visionary instincts and strengths as a mentor and leader that industry peers and fellow musicians have recognized most.
His initial recordings with Integrity Music led to a year relationship with the label, during which time he served in a variety of creative roles and was eventually named president of the label. But, in latehe decided to leave his position at the label.
It had taken a back seat for far too long. It was no longer a career issue. I knew that if I didn't pay attention to the stirring in my heart, I would be disobedient to God. To pursue something completely new — leaving a secure position at a company when he had a family with five children to support three in college — went against all logical reasoning.
But it was a heart decision. I know I did the right thing. Integrity was my family for 20 years. It was a season of my life that I was blessed to be a part of, but seasons change, and if we don't change when the Holy Spirit wants us to change, we miss out on some of the best things ever.
In many ways, it's the perfect title for where his life is at the moment. Fear says, 'God is not going to use you anymore.
You're not young and beautiful. I'd really removed myself from the very thing that got me into music to begin with — the nitty gritty of working with songs, working with songwriters, getting the right band together, getting the right sounds… It's just been such a pleasure.
Writing was always something I crammed into the middle of a busy schedule. But I've had time to live with these songs, and to be intentional about the writing process. I've not been this intentional about my writing in a long time.
I really think it's the most personal project I've ever done. It's why the album kicks off with the powerful worship chorus "The Greatness of You.
When you understand that you are called to do a specific thing — when you get in that place — you can step fully into the role God has for you, and say 'This is who I am.
But I believe there is more — for the preacher who has had a moral failure, for the artist who thinks his career is on the way down, for the woman who is divorced and feels judged… there is more.
When we make a mistake, like a GPS, God will 'recalculate' our route. He's going to take us to the place he's destined us to go. Our Plan B is not his Plan B. He's still on Plan A. He's going to get us there.
That's the message of hope, and the message of this record, too!When I first started writing for srmvision.com, I got a bio from an artist who described himself as an intelligent folk singer/songwriter, and the word “intelligent” was misspelled.
