On November 3, Norine Brunson posted a recording of “Worthy of My All” to the Andrew and Norine Brunson Facebook page. The song was written this fall by EPC teaching elder Andrew Brunson while in prison in Turkey.

On the post, Norine commented, “This is a simple recording of Andrew’s song and his melody. Sung by a precious sister who has been here with us for over ten years. She is not a native English speaker as you can tell, but she is very special to us.”

“What a blessing it would be for each of our EPC churches to incorporate this modern hymn into their worship services,” said Jeff Jeremiah, EPC Stated Clerk. “Norine calls it a ‘simple recording,’ but it’s clear that the depth of Andrew’s commitment to Christ flows through these incredibly moving lyrics.”

Brunson has been held since October 2016. At the time of his arrest, he was serving as pastor of Izmir Resurrection Church in the coastal city of Izmir. He faces charges of espionage, acquiring secret political and military information, attempting to destroy constitutional order and overthrowing the Turkish parliament, and membership in an armed terrorist organization.
