I have decided that I am going to start a regular Monday post called “SHOUT OUT”. In these posts I will give an honorable mention to an individual or team of people who make Lifepoint what it is. My desire to is brag on those who get it and encourage those who want to do more. How regular will it be…every Monday until I start doing it more sporadically or not at all. How’s that for assurance.
Today I want to brag on the music team. When we were about to LifePoint we had about the best music team you could want when it came to talent and technique. At one conference we attended everyone was talking about how hard it was to develop a great music team and how crucial it was. We just sat back and with a smug assurance knowing we were miles ahead of anyone else in this department. Then our whole band “disbanded” before we even finished our preview services. Now I am still friends with all of them but needless to say…I was crushed.
Today the future is a lot brighter. While our current music team is still working at getting together they are awesome already. They are up early every Sunday morning and willing to adapt to the vision at a moments notice, although that has not truly been needed up to this point. They have tons of musical talent to tap into and I expect that they have the potential to be one of the best teams in Cleveland…at least for are style. Perhaps in the future I will introduce them individually or let them introduce themselves.
What makes this team so amazing is not necessarily a polished professional performance, but that they are committed to God and his plan for LifePoint and I would not trade that for the best musicians in the world…maybe sub them in…but not trade them.
To our current music team I just want to say thank you for believing in what God can do through LifePoint and choosing to partner with it and in case I didn’t tell you this 100 times already…you guys were awesome yesterday!
