WorshipTogether profiles UK worship leader Tim Hughes, author of the song "Here I Am To Worship."
"The first time I ever came across Tim Hughes, he was leading worship at a church youth group. My friend and pastor, Mike Pilavachi, who heads up Soul Survivor, said, ‘This guy’s definitely got something.’ He was right." – Matt Redman (writer of, “The Heart of Worship,” and “Better Is One Day”)
Fresh faced 24 year-old worship leader Tim Hughes might downplay the heartfelt endorsement offered by his friend, mentor, and Soul Survivor youth ministry colleague Matt Redman. A modest English native from the town of High Wycombe, Hughes isn’t motivated by self-focus, but a deep desire to simply blend in and contribute to the Body of Christ at home and worldwide.
"I would never personally use the word ‘artist’ to describe myself," he admits. "I’m a worship leader, and I write songs to fuel the church."
