Stephen McWhirter is a worship leader, songwriter, recording artist and speaker. His testimony of Jesus taking Him from addiction to redemption is a central part of his ministry. Formally, a member of the worship collective, Iron Bell Music (which was signed to Sony, Essential Worship), today he is a writer and artist with Lula Street Records / Integrity Music. Also, he often works alongside Tyscott Records gospel artist, dove award winner, and stellar and Grammy nominee, Jason Clayborn. The two have multiple projects out together, such as the “Choir Sessions,” “Rapha” and “Born A King” (which aired on the Chosen tv series Christmas Special). Stephen released the song, “Come Jesus Come” on TikTok, drawing 500,000 views in about 24hrs! At the time of this release, he has seen over 100,000 followers and 23,000 have come to Jesus on the platform, in only 5 months!
