Eight years ago, an amp company called Morgan Amps was started.  Joe Morgan was building amps with his own two hands and had an incredibly long waiting list of people wanting one.  Fast forward to today, and Morgan amps is one one the leading amp companies in Country music.  Guitarist for Eric Church, Kenny Chesney, Dierks Bentley, Hunter Hayes, The Police, and More!  Joe, not only makes KILLER amps, but he is a Christ Follower!

On episode 14, Joe talks about how he came to know Jesus, how he started an amp company, his views on church, and how being an authentic person can go a long way!  Give it a listen!  If you are a “Gear Head”, you’ll especially love it!

In the years that I have been in ministry, one question that seems to continue to pop up is “Why does God allow bad things to happen to good people?”  We could chase that question down the theological rabbit hole for days if we wanted to, but in this episode, my friend Shane Longoria shares a story about what happened in his first year of marriage.  His newly wedded wife (Kelly) was abducted, shot in the head, and left for dead.  However God had a different plan!

I love Shane’s take on his view of God as a Worshipper following this tragedy.  I hope that Shane’s story can help shape your view of God as a worship musician, worship leader, etc.
