NEW Podcast Episode with David Ware (Hillsong Worship)

In our Season 2 finale we sit down with David Ware of Hillsong Worship! We learn about his “God adventure,” the evolving mission of Hillsong Worship to be “a global church for the local expression,” and the beautiful behind-the-scenes story of how Fresh Wind came to be. "We can often complicate creativity. God’s truth is simple."

David also speaks on authentic worship leading and that Hillsong is a byproduct of the real success story: that Jesus is going to build His church where He says He’s going to build it. 

NEW Podcast Episode with CeCe Winans

We are so excited to have CeCe Winans on our podcast today. God has trusted CeCe with success and her notoriety has only brought her closer to Him. She shares how her “why” hasn’t changed despite being named the best-selling female gospel artist of all time, and she reminds worship artists that you have to want God more than anything. “Good success means you’re still hidden in Him.”

She also talks about the process behind “Believe For It” - the transcending title track from her new live album. Chris Baker states the simple, powerful truth about CeCe: “There is something that is synonymous with CeCe Winans and that is the presence of God.” Worship leading resources for the entire Believe For It project are now available!

NEW Podcast Episode with Aodhan King (Hillsong Y&F)

Today we hear from Aodhan King of Hillsong Young & Free! He talks about how he loves the vehicle of song as a non-confrontational way to evangelize, the start of Young & Free, and how his worship and mission have always been intrinsically linked. 

He also speaks on their latest album All Of My Best Friends (Acoustic) — in particular "As I Am" and how it’s meant to express the inclusivity of God’s love. Young & Free is marked by a youthful and wild energy, but Aodhan reminds us that you don’t have to be young to connect with their music. All you need is a youthful spirit that God says we all have through Him.

NEW Podcast Episode with Vaughan Phoenix

Grammy-winning producer, writer, musician, arranger and MD Vaughan Phoenix is here to close out our Black History Month series! Vaughan is “the ghost and the machine” behind some of Gospel’s biggest, most influential artists (Tasha Cobbs Leonard, William Murphy, Brian Courtney Wilson, All Nations). He shares why being influenced by all genres contributes to a producer’s sonic impact and how creators should always focus on making the song better rather than their career or ego. 

Be sure to listen to this engaging, humbling episode and check out the new album from All Nations (Come Alive) featuring Maranda Curtis, Todd Dulaney, and Chandler Moore!




NEW Podcast Episode with Marvin Sapp

This week we are honored to have 11x Grammy-nominated Gospel powerhouse Marvin Sapp on the podcast! He shares the responsibility he feels as an artist to deliver “horizontal” messaging that causes people to have a vertical relationship with God, why he always prioritizes singing classic hymns, and most importantly, how he keeps it “churchy and funky.”

He also talks about how he balances ministry and family and how there are some “foundational things we should simply never leave” when it comes to congregational classics. Marvin is considered to be one of the most influential voices in Gospel music. We're honored to share this conversation we believe will leave a mark on your life.

NEW Podcast Episode with Todd Dulaney

Grammy-nominated Todd Dulaney comes on our podcast encouraging you to be your authentic self, as that is what God wants you to be and how He will live His purpose through you.

Chris and Todd declare together that worship has nothing to do with us and that it’s actually about us getting out of the way. Todd also shares why he knows his purpose is to write and perform worship music and that “the Word is the highest level of reality” and that it will “always accomplish what it was sent to.” Let this conversation empower you in your writing, purpose and your faith.


New Podcast Episode with JJ Hairston

We’re so excited to kick off Black History Month 2021 with this conversation between Chris Baker and JJ Hairston. 

Chris and JJ talk about how artists wanting to echo what’s popular is an epidemic in the music industry today, and that being excited about your unique identity yields more longevity than chasing what’s popular.

JJ also encourages all of us that even in this long season of waiting, we’re all still growing and we’ll be even more prepared for the next season because we’ve faced such a long moment of not having our typical comfort crutches to lean on. Don’t miss this episode of The Worship and Technology Podcast!


NEW Podcast Episode with Pat Barrett

Pat Barrett comes on the podcast to break down the songs on his upcoming album and the place they came from. He talks about how the success of “Good Good Father” was one of the truest examples of the notion that someone else can be helped in their faith journey by something you’ve personally walked through, how “true religion is camera shy,” and how resisting the incentive of being overly performative with our prayer and worship may seem counter-intuitive in this day and age but is so crucial. 

Act Justly, Love Mercy, Walk Humbly is coming February 26th. Check out this episode for an intimate deep dive into the songs and their inspiration! | For more on Pat Barrett visit:
