In the July 17 announcement, Newsboys expresses gratitude to the two original members for their time with Newsboys United and for their creative contributions. “We’ve traveled North America together, performed hundreds of concerts, rekindled old friendships, made lots of new memories, had a LOT of laughs, and released an album,” they write, referring to the expanded group’s 2019 project “United.” “Coming together as a UNITED family is something we will forever be grateful for.” Newsboys adds that their team “has been a family from the beginning” and “that will never change.”
