Episode 27 – Jamie Ivey (Podcaster/Worship Pastor’s Wife)

Are you involved in some type of worship ministry?  Are you married or in a relationship? Have you ever wondered what your significant other thinks about it?  Ministry is something that (at times) can be taxing on a marriage or relationship.

In Episode 27, my friend Jamie Ivey gives us an interesting Point of view on worship ministry.  Jamie is the host of a Podcast called “The Happy Hour with Jamie Ivey”.  Her podcast is currently ranked NUMBER 6 on iTunes in the Religion & Spirituality category!  She has also been married to a worship pastor for 16 years now.  I love her wisdom on the subject of relationships within worship ministry.  Such a GREAT conversation!

Episode 26 – Brady Bruton (Owner of Brady Cases)

If you are a musician and have ever tried to buy a touring case for any of your equipment, then you have probably heard of Brady Cases.  Brady Bruton is one of the best custom case builders there is!  If you can think of it, Brady can build it!  Brady has built cases for Katy Perry, Chicago, Switchfoot, and almost every touring worship musician out there!

Brady is also a worship musician!  Brady’s love for guitar and music is what caused him to start Brady Cases 10 years ago.  In this episode we discuss Buisiness, Gear, and worship culture!

Episode 25 – Clay Scroggins (Lead Pastor at North Point Community Church) “How to Lead When You’re Not in Charge”

Episode 25 was an extremely fun conversation for me!  I Love Leadership and I’m a huge Clay Scroggins fan!  Clay is the lead pastor at North Point Community Church in Alpharetta, Georgia.  He serves under the leadership of Andy Stanley.  The North Point Campus runs over 12,000 people on the weekends.

Clay is also the author of the book “How to Lead When You’re Not in Charge: Leveraging Influence When You Lack Authority”. His book (which is awesome) just came out this week!

Leadership is a huge part of Worship Leadership!  Clay is one of the best leadership authorities out there!  So we talk about leading from a position of influence.  You can lead!  Even if you aren’t “The Boss”.
