Intent is a worship band from the South Hills of Pittsburgh whose music consists of popular modern worship and original songs.
Intent's purpose is to lead God's people into worship and usher in the kingdom of heaven. Our vision is to see the lost brought back to their first love and to help raise up the people that will worship the Father in Spirit and in Truth. If you are looking for just a band, we aren't it. But if you want a real encounter in worship with the Father, you've come to the right place.
