Hope Reinvented by Denise Pass

Currently the Worship Leader for her home church, Denise writes, sings, and proclaims God’s goodness based on her real-life experiences. She is a currently writing the book, “Shame Off You” for Abingdon Press (August 2018), is the author of “31 Days to Hope Reinvented” and is also a published author with the Upper Room. Denise has a weekly podcast, “Black and White ~ Raw Truth, Radical Grace and Real Hope in a Gray World” and blogs weekly devotions to encourage her on-line followers.

A conference speaker, singer/songwriter and a Christian artist who shares her music and message through singing and speaking at retreats and conferences, worship services, festivals and events, Denise imparts a life changing message of unshakeable hope.

“At the pinnacle of my career, a traumatic and life-altering event challenged my faith. I walked, stumbled, and crawled with the Lord through those painful days and learned lessons that continue to shape my music and my messages. With humility and transparency, I address issues such as loss, insecurity, discouragement, deception, isolation, and purity.”

Recently a finalist in the International Song Competition with her song, “You Are Worthy” (March 2017), her song, “Layers” also was a finalist in the Great American Song Competition in April 2016. “You are Worthy” recorded with Ed Cash’s Anchor Production company in Nashville, TN, and “Deeper”, recorded by Shay Watson are both currently on radio.

Formerly a music performance major on full scholarship at the University of Maryland when she came to know Christ as her savior, God began to give her songs on the piano. Denise’s debut album, “Just Fine”, released in 2002, launched her music and speaking ministry in the Mid-Atlantic states. The track, “Comfort to the Weary”, received airplay on radio stations in Pennsylvania and New York and was an all-day feature on KKLA Radio in Los Angeles, bringing comfort to listeners in the wake of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

Denise’s sophomore album, “Praying For You” included tracks such as “Reign in Me” that received airplay in 11 states all across the mid-Atlantic region. This CD received Album of the Year from the Independent Gospel Music Association, during which time Denise was also a finalist for Inspirational Artist of the Year on

In 2007 she was awarded first place in the pop/contemporary music category by the President of K-LOVE radio in partnership with the International Music Ministry Association. The winning performance was featured on the TV show “A Night With Champions”. These awards and events seemed to confirm God’s calling on her life in the music ministry.

At the end of 2007, within months of receiving this recognition, Denise’s life was suddenly upended by a personal crisis that tore at the very fabric of her family. In the midst, God delivered a new message in songs flowing from a wounded heart attended to by our living God. Ultimately healing and restoration came that confirmed God’s promise to bring beauty from ashes to His believers. Denise believes that God uses broken vessels to share His love with others and she proclaims this truth to herself and others that, everything God allows in is useful and nothing is wasted in His hands.

“We serve a God who redeems and restores.” Denise Pass
