I remember it just like yesterday when I first heard the band Kutless. Their song “Strong Tower” often played on the radio and was sung at church youth group. I owned their very first album and it’s hard to believe that it came out in 1999 (17 years ago!). I learned an interesting piece of information which is that this band comes from Portland, Oregon. I live only miles away from this city now, but back when I started listening to the is the band, I lived over 2,000 miles away from this destination in the deep south. I would never have thought, I’d be residing so near their regular stomping grounds and think that’s pretty cool!
Today I’m excited to share my thoughts on the bands latest album, ALPHA / OMEGA. This album has a collection of both the Christian rock songs the band is clearly known for and they’ve also included well-known worship songs. Longtime fans I’m sure will enjoy the new version of “Strong Tower”, as I know I did! Included also is the debut radio single “King of my Heart!”.
The worship tracks included are some of my favorites. We often sing Great Are You Lord in our church worship services and I feel they did this song justice. Cornerstone is a great worship song about trusting fully in Christ.
I love having a mix of songs and feel this album comes together very well. The lyrics are moving and all point to the love, grace, and greatness of the Lord. It’s an uplifting album that praises the Lord and stirs us to rely on the Saviour and aspire to be more like Him in every part of our life.

After more than 15 years together and reaching fans around the world, Kutless continues to be focused on sharing the Gospel with a younger generation that is searching for answers.
“We really believe that music can make a difference in people’s lives,” shares Jon Micah Sumrall. “Music is an incredibly powerful tool that can break down walls and allow us to communicate a message of hope to people who may not listen otherwise. We are still recording and performing because we really do believe it makes a difference. We hear stories all the time from people who share with us how a concert or a song has radically impacted their life, and it’s these types of testimonies that keep us going year after year.”
In 2012, Kutless formed EOTA Ministries (End of The Age) to expand their evangelistic outreach around the globe. EOTA is the non-profit arm that aids Kutless in hosting large, free outreach concerts and events. In 2015, they partnered with other organizations to bring concerts to Kiev, Ukraine and other cities for six events – the largest of their kind in that country. The next year, Kutless returned to 11 cities in Ukraine as well as in Belarus, a communist country, where more than 100,000 heard the Gospel and over 40,000 commitments to Christ.
