He’s got several very helpful words for leaders, worship pastors, and songwriters in this conversation. “Leadership isn’t a ladder…“, “You take care of your depth…“, and Brett’s prayer every Sunday morning will stick with you.Music featured in this episode: “Refuge” and “Sons and Daughters”, both led by Brett Stanfill.
