Story: Interdenominational Christianity

'His name is higher', with David and Dale Garratt

In 1974 New Zealand charismatic Christian pastors David and Dale Garratt held huge outdoor meetings at racetracks in Palmerston North and Tauranga. Each was attended by about 3,000 people and the Garratts led them in singing devotional songs. These were recorded and later released as the album Praise the name of Jesus. Listen to a clip of 'His name is higher', one of the songs on the album.
