Enjoying this so much...
I am not a pastor or a worship leader, but I love Jesus, the Vineyard, and hearing people’s stories! I’m loving this podcast so much! Not sure if you are taking requests for interviews, but I’d love to hear from Chris Lizotte, Ryan Delmore, and Eddie Espinosa.
Real, Honest, and Encouraging
Thank you for creating this. I don't often get time to sit and listen to a podcast, and when I do - this is the one. It is refreshing to not only hear from Vineyard leaders but also others who have made important contributions to worship and the Church. I find myself hearing my own stories in the midst of their stories, and it encourages my soul.
Silver and Gold and everything in between
Every episode might not fully be for you, but listen anyways because each episode has a gold nugget in there that is worth mining for. Encouraging and insightful.
