Jonathan and Melissa Helser have been apart of the Bethel Music Collective since 2014, bringing with them a rich history of passionate worship. The Helser’s yearn to see a generation encounter the love of God and their music reflects their collisions with God’s love.
Their newest album, Beautiful Surrender, released in September of 2016 and represents their eighth album release to date. Jonathan & Melissa are also featured on Bethel Music’s latest albums, Have It All (“Thank You”), and We Will Not Be Shaken with their powerful anthem “No Longer Slaves”. They have authored well-known songs such as “Abba”, “Endless Ocean”, “On the Shores”, and “Explode My Soul”.
In addition to worship leading and songwriting, Jonathan and Melissa have devoted their lives to discipleship for the last 16 years. When they are not traveling, they are pursuing kingdom family through the community and schools they lead. They live with their two beautiful children in Sophia, North Carolina where they facilitate a multi-generational ministry called A Place for the Heart. Here they lead a school for the heart known as the 18-Inch Journey. They also lead a collective of artists called the Cageless Birds, whose mission is to craft songs, art, and goods that encourage others into wholeness and freedom as children of God.
