Encountering God in a moment

  • God promised us there was more, and there has to be more of Him for us to encounter than what was already written.

  • “My dad taught me that it’s about His presence in this very moment because a good father knows how to meet their kid at that moment, not try to drag them into something they’re not ready for.”

  • “There are churches all over the world singing certain songs, because it’s what God is breathing on, and whether it’s our song or not we should be singing it.”



  • God honors risk-taking and vulnerability.

  • Rather than looking for a formula, young worshipers should lead with someone who covers them and gives them a chance to try. 

  • “It’s vulnerable every time, and if it’s not, I know I’m not bringing all of me. It should feel a little bit unnerving.”

  • “I have to realize the smile of God is all I’m looking for, and it’s easier to get that with God than with people.”

  • If we connect and adore Him, and practice taking a risk, He’s going to honor that.


Balancing life on stage and off stage

  • “I sit with the Lord and let Him center me before I get on stage.”

  • When we only spend time with God while we’re on stage, we will get confused about whether He is just speaking to us or the whole room.

  • “I have also learned that if God is wiring in me a message, it’s not only for me.”

  • “Sometimes the Lord just says, ‘Let them watch.’ That used to freak me out, but it’s better caught by people than taught.”
