BREATHE WORSHIP GATHERING
Breathe Worship Gathering is a collective of prophetic worship artists who seek to play and sing the song of the Lord with Him and His people.
"...admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord." Colossians 3:16
Worship at Breathe is different... it's all about singing what the Holy Spirit is singing, doing what He's doing and saying what He's saying.
