The spirit of the Lord God is upon me, because the Lord has anointed me; he has sent me to bring good news to the oppressed, to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and release to the prisoners; (Isaiah 61:1 NRSV)

Isaiah 61 One began as the praise and worship band for the East Texas Night of Worship in June 2016 hosted by the East Texas Healing Center. As that event grew outside the walls of the East Texas Healing Center members of the group felt a call to full time worship ministry. The result is the group of worshipers that currently comprise Isaiah 61 One.

Led by husband and wife team Danny and Rachel Powell, the group is made up of musicians, psalmists, and ministers from at least 5 different church homes, making the ministry truly non-denominational. Each member shares a passion for our Lord Christ Jesus and are called specifically to worship ministry.

Primary musical influences for the band would include contemporary worship groups like Gateway Worship, Jesus Culture, Hillsong Acoustic; and Enter The Worship Circle.

Isaiah 61 One also is strong doing covers of traditional hymns (currently including “How Great Thou Art”, “Old Rugged Cross” and “It Is Well” in the sets).

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, the group exists to serve. Contact for more information about how Isaiah 61 One can work with you.

Rachel Powell: vocals & flute

Rachel has a passion for worship especially singing harmony. She’s happiest while singing directly to Jesus. While she’s the “lead singer” of the group, she’s just as comfortable (maybe more so) singing harmony.

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.

 Mark Dupuis: bass and joy

Minister of Joy Mark Dupuis

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!
