Why the name Ascent?

Ascent Movement

January 25, 2023

Toward the end of the book of Psalms, you’ll encounter a group of 15 songs, most no longer than 4 or 5 verses. These are the Songs of Ascent, sung by pilgrims as they traveled together up to Jerusalem for worship. Their words recount the defeat and victory, lament and praise, brokenness and restoration experienced by God’s people throughout their history. 

These songs and their themes are core to our mission at Ascent and inspire our continued work: moving together toward the renewal of all things. 

As we launch this movement, we invite you to explore our website to learn more about how you can connect with fellow pilgrims pursuing deeper faith and the flourishing of the church. Here are 3 more ways to engage:

  • Pray for wisdom as Ascent launches and grows
  • Share Ascent with like minded church leaders and practitioners
  • Sign up to stay connected on the latest news using the button at the bottom of this webpage
