Jesus said “a time has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in the Spirit and in truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks. God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in the Spirit and in truth.”
So we will have this be our main topic of the March Gathering- a worship conversation with two of our very own accomplished worship leaders:
Justin leads worship at each of the three Sunday morning services at Grace Community Church in Seal Beach. He is a graduate of Talbot School of Theology (MA in Spiritual Formation). Prior to coming to Grace, he served as a pastor at churches in Virginia and Costa Mesa. Justin is an accomplished singer-songwriter, and you can find his ten albums on iTunes. Justin and his wife, Heidi, have been married for over twenty years, and have four children.
Beth landed in the US from Northern Ireland shortly, after obtaining a music degree at the University of York, UK, to pursue a worship internship that was supposed to last 6 months. After several years of touring with various artists (some major, many minor!) she joined the staff of Grace Long Beach. She served as the Worship Director for about 14 years before stepping into an Executive role a few years ago. She still leads worship regularly at Grace and can be found on occasion, fiddling in the corner of the Auld Dubliner on a Sunday afternoon.
In preparation for this conversation, Justin and Beth know there are many issues that arise in the pastor/worship/worship leader relationship. In order to speak more specifically to the realities faced by ministry leaders on a daily basis, we’d love to hear about the things that you struggle with, or have questions about, or topics you’d like to see addressed at our upcoming gathering: please fill out this anonymous feedback form
