A: For Brian, he doesn’t get his guitar out and worship by himself anymore. He mostly reads books and listens to worship on his ipad and instantly goes into writing mode. In order to connect with God outside of his “job”, he connects with God

Be the biggest encourager in the room. It’s your job as a leader to speak the truth and how the people respond to the truth, create a place for them and realize that they’re there for a reason and God has a purpose for them.
