It’s no secret that worship is a primary priority at Elevation. Our worship team is made up of some of the most gifted and talented people I’ve ever been around. Since I led worship for years before we started the church (and even led worship at Elevation for the first year we existed), it’s just in my blood. In fact, every once in a while, when the mood hits, I jump on the stage, grab the mic, and sing along for a minute or two with the band. I’m really quite rusty. But I like to keep everyone on their toes.
Recently, one of my favorite worship leaders on the planet stopped by to celebrate our four year anniversary with us. Israel Houghton is a Grammy award winning artist, he leads worship at Lakewood, the largest church in America, and he’s a phenomenal human being.
While he was here, he was gracious enough to spend a few minutes with me discussing diversity, uniqueness, and the trends and opportunities he sees in the body of Christ around the world. This week, I’ll be posting excerpts from the interview here on the blog. The content will be helpful to everyone- not just worship leaders. Hope you enjoy it.
