Accelerate is the fourth album by the Christian pop group Jump5. It was released on October 7, 2003. The album demonstrated the group's shift towards a pop/rock sound, and was also the first album on which a member of the group had writing credits. Half of the album was made up of covers, including "Walking on Sunshine" by Katrina and the Waves and "Shining Star" by Earth, Wind & Fire. The group's cover of Sister Sledge's "We Are Family" was used as the theme for the Radio Disney Family Pledge Initiative.

It charted at #150 on the Billboard Top 200 and at #8 on the Top Christian Albums charts.[2]
