Hillbilly Worship Leader

A little back story on this one. We were eating dinner at Mark and Crystal Vance’s house and my amazing wife made some fabulous scotcheroos. They were awesome but I had put them into the freezer for just about 30 minutes to cool them down so they were just a tad hard. When Mark bit into one the glue broke from his bridge on his front teeth so the teeth actually stayed in the scotheroo. That was funny enough, but then we got to talking about when he was going to get it fixed and if in the meantime while he was leading music for church it would fall out and he’d have to lead hillbilly style… hence what is below…

A good word from a good friend, Mark Vance (a so called contributor to this blog, lazy bum… – jk!)

p.s. I wanted to add, just think of the ramifications of thinking of the church as a body with regard to how we approach ministry success (ie. instead of grow by 10%, help to see “Mark and Ryan” grow by 10%…)
