YOU ARE LOVED.
YOU ARE NOT ALONE.
We believe we’re stronger together.
We believe you are more than a song singer…you are a carrier of the presence of God
Worship Circle is a growing community of worship leaders who are discovering the power of leading from a place of being fully alive in our identity, truly known by others, and sharpened in the skills necessary to lead well. It is our joy and honor to walk with you and help further you in your leadership.
You have a story…you have a gift. We can help.
You are loved and not alone.
For the past 32 years I’ve been involved in church music and worship leadership. I started out in a youth group band with my friend Andy Stanley in the 80’s, partnered with Louie Giglio in the 90’s and early 2000’s in Atlanta with a ministry called 7:22, traveled will the Billy Graham Evangelistic association and worked contractually and on staff as a worship pastor at North Point Community for 21 years. My wife Carrie and I met in 1995, have been married for 22 years and have 4 boys. We know what it’s like to be entrusted with the call of helping people respond to the gospel of Jesus in song and with life and yet at the same time experience the day in and day out of highs and lows of ministry and family life. I know what it’s like to stand in front of thousands of people week after week and yet feel alone. We’ve seen first hand how God redeems and restores our lives when we turn to Him. We believe that as Isaiah 61 says, “The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on you” to bring healing and redemption to those you serve in your lifetime. We believe that you are more than a song singer or field on a spreadsheet to be booked… and that the story of your life can be used to connect those you lead to Jesus for His glory. We want you to know that each week when you lead there is an army of leaders just like you on the earth for this generation from every tribe and nation. Together with our friends Christy Nockels, Kim Walker Smith, Paul Baloche, Jeremy Riddle, and Meredith Andrews, it is our joy as seasoned leaders yet still learning to walk beside you in this mentoring community where you will learn from our mistakes and triumphs, be loved by peers just like you and be sharpened in the skills needed to lead in the power of your authentic identity. We’d like to invite you to look at the program page to choose your mentor and term length. Fill out the application and if accepted you will journey with your small group for your term and then meet in person at our annual Worship Circle Retreat with your mentor, your group members and all of the Worship Circle mentors and other members. Our tribe is growing and connected and we’d love for you to pray about being a part!
