North Point InsideOut is an American contemporary worship music band from Alpharetta, Georgia. Their group formed at North Point Community Church in 1995, a non-denominational congregation, a church established by Pastor Andy Stanley. The group released, No One Higher in 2012 and Hear in 2015 with North Point Music. Nothing Ordinary: Part 1 released in June 2017 and Nothing Ordinary: Part 2 released in October of 2017 were recorded with Centricity Music. Two of those albums both charted on the Billboard magazine charts, with the Hear album placing on the Billboard 200 chart. The group is best known for their 2015 hit "Death Was Arrested" featuring Seth Condrey. It peaked at No. 6 on the Billboard Christian Digital Song Sales for four consecutive weeks. The song has been played 10 million times on Spotify.

Background[edit]

InsideOut is the high school ministry arm of North Point Community Church in Alpharetta, Georgia, where they are pastored by Andy Stanley. North Point InsideOut leads worship for the weekly student InsideOut gathering and share songs coming out of North Point Community Church and the five metro Atlanta North Point campuses.[1][2]

The band started as a musical entity in 1995, with their first album, No One Higher, that was released in 2012.[3][4] This album was their breakthrough release on the Billboard magazine charts, where it peaked at No. 20 on the Christian Albums and No. 19 on the Heatseekers Albums charts.[5] Their subsequent album, Hear, was released in 2015, by North Point Music,[6][7] where this peaked on the Billboard 200 at No. 193 and on the Christian Albums at No. 2.[5] The album was placed at No. 1 on the Worship Leader Top 5 Community Funded/Indie Releases of 2015 list,[8] and the song, "Trust It All", was placed at No. 11 on their Top 20 Songs of 2015 list.[9] North Point InsideOut recorded their junior album at Infinite Energy Arena in Gwinnett County, Atlanta on March 26. Sometime in the mix they signed a deal with Centricity Music to publish their Nothing Ordinary EP on iTunes, Google Play, and Amazon Music. The EP released on April 7, 2017.

They recorded five new singles in April 2018: "Unshakable Love", "On My Way Back Home", "Not the Same", "Changed" and "Wide Open". They are expected to release their fourth studio album later this year.[citation needed]

InsideOut ministry[edit]

The InsideOut ministry is the high school department of North Point Ministries. Thousands of high school students in the metro Atlanta area come to North Point's six locations every Sunday night including North Point Community Church, Browns Bridge Church, Gwinnett Church, Buckhead Church, Decatur Church, and Woodstock Church. It is the largest high school ministry in the United States. Every Sunday, along with church music, students listen to their campuses' pastor, go to small group, and later eat dinner with their friends. InsideOut also has three church retreats every year including, The Walk, MyLife and Vertical Reality. The North Point InsideOut band gets to share new songs with students every retreat.
