Isaiah 61 One at Holy Spirit Freedom Fellowship

Isaiah 61 One is a (mostly) acoustic praise and worship band featuring 3 primary vocalists plus trumpet, flute, guitars, hand percussion and one electric instrument, bass. The band started out as the P&W band for the East Texas Night of Worship in June 2016 at the East Texas Healing Center. That event quickly outgrew the facility and the band started playing at local area churches and events. Lead by husband and wife team Danny and Rachel Powell, the group is made up of musicians from at least 5 different church homes (we have several musicians that are in and out of the group).

Primary influences for the band would include contemporary worship groups like Gateway Worship particularly Kari Jobe; Jesus Culture, particularly Kim Walker Smith; Hillsong Acoustic; and Enter The Worship Circle. Isaiah 61 One also is strong doing covers of traditional hymns (currently we include “How Great Thou Art”, “Old Rugged Cross” and “It Is Well” in our set).

The band loves to worship Jesus and lead others to the throne. They are available for almost any size event (house church to stadium). Money isn’t usually an issue, we are here to serve the Lord. Contact us for more information about how Isaiah 61 One can work with you.

Before coming to Texas, Rachel served in a prophetic ministry in Columbus, Ohio.

Rachel and her husband, Danny, serve as worship pastors at the East Texas Healing Center in Nacogdoches, Texas and are on the worship team at Life Point Church (Nacogdoches).

Zachry Powell: he hits stuff

Zach loves to hit things…always has. As a child he made his first drum kit out of card board boxes drawing the drum heads on the boxes. During worship, he’s very in tune with the Spirit and actively participates in the ebb and flow.

This is my "serious" face

Mark has been ordained a “Minister of Joy” by Danny & Rachel Powell because you can’t be around him and not feel the Joy of the Lord!
