The Desperation Band, led by Jared Anderson, Jon Egan, and Glenn Packiam, is the youth worship ministry of New Life Church in Colorado Springs, Colorado. All three are associate worship pastors at the church.
Jared leads worship for the SATURDAYNIGHT service, Jon for _tag (the high school group), and Glenn for theMILL (the college group). In addition to their various responsibilities during the week, they all come together to lead with worship pastor Ross Parsley on Sunday mornings, reflecting the team concept of NewLifeWorship.
The band has been featured on the main stage at Creation East, and has led worship in the Worship Tent at both Creation East and Kingdom Bound. They have also been featured on Teen Mania's Acquire the Fire tour dates in stadiums around the country. Their albums, recorded live at New Life Church, appear on Integrity's Vertical Music label and feature high-energy, passionate new worship songs that convey the hunger of their generation for God.
