New methods in the area of evangelism, mission and church grow are being applied as Integrity Music in conjunction with INO Records and Simpleville Music will release resource music kits of MercyMe's worship songs for worship leaders at local churches for worship aids. The double CD disc set, “Word of God Speak: The Worship Songs of MercyMe Resource Kit,” arrives in stores on June 22.

“Integrity has always been committed to providing the best and most relevant resources for churches, worship leaders and anyone involved in corporate worship. ‘MercyMe Resource Kit’ is an amazing resource intended to help churches further utilize MercyMe’s music. Their music has captured the hearts of millions of people in and outside of church. This resource kit will give churches a great tool kit for incorporating these wonderful songs in their worship services,” said Craig Dunnagan, vice president of Music Publishing and Church Resources for Integrity Music.

“Word of God Speak: The Worship songs of Mercy Me” is packaged in a double DVD- styled box to emphasize the uniqueness of the product. The first of two discs in the “MercyMe Resource Kit” is a listening audio CD which features seven original recordings from the band’s best selling CDs, Almost There and Spoken For, plus three exclusive recordings from MercyMe’s early independent recordings.

“Mark Nicholas of Simpleville Music and the guys from Mercy Me worked very diligently to supply us these “rare” songs with re-mixed trax for some of their most in –demand early worship songs. You can’t get these recordings anywhere else,” said Dunnagan.

The second disc, an enhanced stereo trax CD, features Media Shout Files, lyric text files and Power Point files for each song and also includes original key trax for each song. One of the most impressive features of the second disc are the three different charts, including Piano/Vocal Charts, Lead Sheet with melody line and chord charts. Each chart is available in two different keys and is fully viewable and printable from a PC.
