As a worship leader and songwriter, it’s vital to write and sing from that real and authentic place for which people are hungering and thirsting. Kristian Stanfill is Worship Pastor at Passion City Church in Atlanta, and the Worship Leader at the Passion Conferences. Passion’s latest album, Follow You Anywhere, was recorded live at their church and released in January. Kristian describes the album as a “different project” that covers many of the same themes common to their music, like living a surrendered life, proclaiming the cross, and exalting Jesus. Kristian refers to one song from the album,” I’ll Follow You Anywhere,” as the heartbeat of Passion’s message. He says the song, “Bigger Than I Thought You Were,” calls people to be honest and vulnerable, and he describes what it’s like to sing “dangerous lyrics” like these. Kristian explains how he has hit mountaintops and valleys in his life, and just like the rest of us, he always needs something to call him back to the goodness and faithfulness of God--and that’s what the music does. Kristian shares why it’s important to say YES to Jesus daily and why Passion is involved with the ENDIT Movement, dedicated to helping free those in sex slavery. He says, “God is calling us to something eternal and something bigger than ourselves.”

“Do you trust me?” These were the words God said over and over again to Bob Hasson a few years ago, and that prompted Bob to experience God’s kingdom in a new and different way and begin thinking “outside the box.” Bob Hasson is a businessman, leadership consultant, and the author of The Business of Honor: Restoring the Heart of Business. Bob shares his journey that began when Jesus found him back in 1978, but things changed when he was 57 years old and “the Lord started shaking my tree.” This commercial painting contractor had to learn the hard lesson that business people CAN be right in the center of God’s will, and that they don’t have to be pastors to be used by God. Bob’s passion today is developing leaders and strong organizational structures, and he spends a lot of time “pastoring” other people. Bob explains the dichotomy of our operating systems as believers, as we function either with the spirit of an orphan or as a loved child of God. His parting advice from today’s conversation is, “If it was easy, then everyone would be doing it.” Join us for inspiration and wisdom from Bob!

Today’s conversation is with a true “kingdom advancer,” a man who is fully devoted to what God has called him to in this life. Rev. George Lamb is Founder and Executive Director of Millennium Man Ministries and President/CEO of the Faith Advisory Council for Community Transformation; along with those positions, he has his hands in the work of numerous other ministries to further the kingdom of God. From inner city NY, growing up with poor role models and a cultural mindset that didn’t honor the correct values, George has been elevated to many places of service as God has paved the way for him. He says it comes down to obedience and availability because these are the qualities that God looks for in people He wants to use. George shares the way the Holy Spirit orchestrated and commandeered his life, back when he was a construction worker who lived a party lifestyle---it was one fateful night at church with his mother when George’s life was changed. God has put him in places the world would say he’s not qualified for, but he is helping effect cultural change on a governmental level and helping the church fit into the “cultural clash” occurring in America today. Join us to hear more from George and how he commits daily to “letting my hands be used by the King.”

From overseas professional basketball player to full-time pastor at The Rock Church in San Diego, this mentor and motivational speaker travels extensively around the world, letting his “God-brilliance” shine forth. Greg Hendricks describes himself as a man who loves God, loves his family, and loves connecting people with what God wants to do so they can thrive on their journeys. Greg grew up without a father, being raised by a single mom, but had an early awareness of God, even though church was not part of his life. He found sports, secured a college scholarship, and lived the typical “party” lifestyle until he met his wife---after praying to God to send her his way. A shift occurred when Greg met the Lord and submitted to His plan, even though being a pastor wasn’t anywhere on his radar. In today’s show, Greg shares what he has learned about being obedient, faithful, exploring God, and finding His goodness. He explains how he is learning to pursue God, helping people grasp their identity in Christ, and watching God “turn their messes into masterpieces.” Greg says, “Be passionate about the journey, because that’s where the gold is!” Join us for more about Greg’s inspiring story of God’s mercy and grace at work!
