Background:
-There were 2 sides:  The “Rock Star wanna be” vs. the Worship Leader.
-“I came to a place where I allowed the Holy Spirit to be the loudest voice."
-Let the presence of God be the focal point of every service. (click to tweet!)

On this episode, Matt Perkins interviews his wife, Marybeth Perkins, about what it means to lead through brokenness. As briefly mentioned on the last episode, Matt and his wife have been faced with a significant challenge in their life...cancer. Listen as they openly and honestly share about what they are going through.

Songs: 

Fear Not - Carl Cartee, David Moffitt  
Into Your Presence - BJ Putnam
Find Rest - Francesca Battestelli, Jared Anderson, Ian Eskelin

Book:

One Thousand Gifts -  Ann Voskamp

Leading through Brokeness

"They do not fear bad news; they confidently trust the Lord to care for them.” Psalm 112:7

1. Be Transparent
    A. Show your brokenness
    B. Show your dependence on God

2. Be Authentic
Transparency vs. Authenticity - Transparency is how much you share.  Authenticity is the truth behind your words.  Live an authentic life in front of your team.

3. Be Realistic
    A. You can’t be all things to all people
    B. Keep your priorities in check

"Yes, my soul, find rest in God; my hope comes from him.  Truly He is my rock and my salvation; He is my fortress, I will not be shaken.  My salvation and my honor depend on God; He is my mighty rock, my refuge.  Trust in Him at all times, you people; pour out your hearts to Him, for God is our refuge.” Psalm 62:5-8

On this episode, Matt Perkins shares some thoughts on avoiding chaos during the Christmas season. Some notes from the podcast:

Communication 
Being a good communicator is more than simply talking. There is a time to speak, but we must strive to be great listeners. Just so we all know; listening isn’t that thing we do when we are waiting for our turn to talk! What do your team meetings look like? Do you feel like the attitude of your team is better or worse than it was six months ago?

Connection 
To take your team to the next level, you have to move beyond communication and develop a connection. Connection within a team doesn’t happen overnight. You must be intentional. Connection is a result of spending time with your team. It is the result of walking through difficult seasons and situations with one another. Connection comes when you are willing to say “thank you” and “I’m sorry”. If you have to be the one who gets credit for every idea, you are going to be your own worst enemy. That is a connection killer.

Capacity 
The result of good communication and connection with your teams will lead to a greater capacity.

1 Corinthians 12:20 (NLT) explains, “Yes there are many parts, but only one body…” Our different ideas, opinions and gifts will cause us to grow and increase our team’s capacity. As you prepare for your next week or event, embrace the differences and connect with your team.

A Few Notable Songs Adam has been a part of writing:

  • Light The Way (feat. Israel Houghton) – James Fortune’s CD “Live Through it”

  • A Thousand Miles (feat. Adam Ranney) – Free Chapel’s “Power of the Cross” CD

"Find what feeds you and then quit starving yourself!"

2. Songwriting

  • Don’t try and force creativity

  • Keep a memo recorder with you always

  • Take the time you have available

  • Collaborate

  • Our Pastors are some of our greatest sources of inspiration.

3. Pastor Relationships

  • Do you know his heart (what “floats his boat”)?

On this episode, we interview our good friend, Dustin Smith. We discuss Nashville, Dustin's new album releasing on 9/23, his response to people criticizing the theology in some of his songs, and more.

We discuss his recent statement:

One of the biggest problems in worship today is that we are being taught how to sing but not how to see. When you sing you just need to know the words and sing them accordingly but when you are taught to see the One you sing too, it becomes more of a heart response as opposed to a trained response.

Some quotes from the interview:

"I didn’t realize that I had already set my path in motion…"

“It’s important that as we seek God and what direction He has for our life, that we also nurture and develop the young musicians in our path.”

“Before you can effectively work together as a team (band), you have to create an environment that is healthy in communication and relationships.”

What have you set in motion in your life or ministry by your words?

In what ways can you foster a healthy environment with your team?

Do you focus on investing in the next generation?

On this episode, Matt Perkins (of LeadersInWorship.com) joins me to make a BIG announcement! We are super excited about this news, so we invite you to listen and get excited with us! We also announce our Songwriting Contest that's open right now!

Since 2007, Matt Perkins has served as the Worship Arts Pastor at Faith Assembly in Orlando. He, and his wife, Marybeth, have served in full-time ministry since 1992, leading worship ministries in Florida, Wisconsin, California, Colorado, and Illinois. 

The local church is a key focus in Matt’s ministry. He is determined to affect positive change and to see worship leaders reach their full potential through holistic leadership.

A published songwriter, Matt has also ministered and performed with recording artists, Martha Munizzi, BJ Putnam, Freddy Rodriguez and William McDowell. He has also developed choirs and performed with Josh Groban, Pat Boone, and the late Ray Charles.

Experienced in Ableton Live software training for worship, Matt is a self-proclaimed geek. He is serious about “Life, ministry and the pursuit of techiness”. 

Also know as “Pastor Gadget”, WordPress, podcasting, and electronics consume him. He on the other hand, consumes coffee; lots of it. If not on stage or his office, you can find Matt at Starbucks, Best Buy or the Apple store (he’s an Apple fan-boy through and through).

On this episode, I share a quick recap of the All About Worship Conference. I also feature my recent interview with Bobby & Kristen Gilles. They are songwriters who live in new Albany, Indiana and serve at Sojourn Community Church where Bobby is on staff as a Director of Communications.

We discuss how they got their start in leading worship and songwriting, their journey going through a tragic event of their stillborn son, encouragement for those grieving, and more. Stay tuned after the interview to hear the song "Awesome is Your Power" from Kristen’s new album Parker’s Mercy Brigade.
