New Missions Hymn: For the Sake of His Name

For the Sake of His Name is a new hymn by Chris Anderson and Greg Habegger, written in honor of the 10th Anniversary of the Student Global Impact National Conference, a ministry of Inter-City Baptist Church which promotes the work of world evangelization to college students from around the country. The hymn, based on  3 John 7 and similar passages, emphasizes God’s glory as the primary motivation for evangelism. The concept of Christ-centered, doxological evangelism is thoroughly Scriptural. However, two books—John Piper’s book Let the Nations Be Glad and Dave Doran’s book For the Sake of His Namehave especially helped me understand and appreciate it.

The new hymn debuted at the conference on January 5, 2010. We pray that it will be a “battle cry” for the cause of missions and the glory of God.

  2. Chris & Greg,
    Thank you for your labor at tweeking and finalizing the song so quickly. It was a tremendous asset to the public worship at SGI ’10. I am sure that it will be used by many churches and schools in the future as a God-centered missions anthem.
    May God bless you and equip you for further ministry of song.
    Tim Aynes
    Director, SGI & Missions Mandate

  3. What a blessing it was to sing this song in corporate worship during the SGI conference this week. An immense blessing from the Lord! As others have mentioned elsewhere, the Christ-centered corporate worship at the conference was absolutely incredible, uplifting, and God glorifying — and this song was a vital part of that.

    Thank you, gentlemen, for providing this rich gift for God’s people. Praise His name!

  4. Praise the Lord, Tim. Our pleasure. Thanks for the opportunity.

    Others: FWIW, the links that were broken earlier are working now. Sorry about that!

  5. I was deeply blessed and encouraged by the song. What you both did is a gift to us and the Body of Christ. It glorifies Christ.

  6. Kent, your comment was stuck in a spam filter, and I just noticed it. Sorry about that!

    Thank you all for your kind comments. It’s all grace. We’ll keep at is “for the sake of His name.”

  7. Hello, I’m an MK in Spain, and when I was on furlough I heard the song for the first time and was really encouraged. I was wondering if it has been translated into Spanish yet. If not I was wondering if I could try to work on it. I’m young and don’t understand all copyright laws so I thought I should ask. I think it would be a great hymn to use over here as well. I’ve noticed that the last comment was 2 years ago so I would understand if this is not seen.
