Charles Jenkins exclusively shared with Billboard, “Number one means your message in the music is being spread widely! That’s the joy! In such a complex time in history I am excited to write an uplifting song to remind people of God’s ability and faithfulness. I’m also so grateful to work with so many amazing individuals including people like radio promoter, Tracey Artis, who I am forever grateful to for her impetuous friendship, constant excellence and her super human drive for good in the world.”
SEASONS by Charles Jenkins seeks to give readers clear direction on any transition in their lives. After serving as pastor for two decades, Jenkins made the difficult decision to retire from full-time ministry and dive into other areas of his life. His decision to retire full time from the pulpit sparked 48-hours of trending questions on social media – “Is your season in this role over?” “What season of life are you in?” and “How do you know when it's time to leave?” In SEASONS, Jenkins provides answers to the questions. The stories and principles leap off of the pages, as he inspires people to consider that they might be on the verge of a new season. SEASONS describes concrete practices that help people take the next step in the various seasons of transition that life will offer.
