Finally Got to Worship at New Life
Last night Tasha and I had the privilege of worshipping at New Life Church here in Colorado Springs – one of the most explosive, innovative churches in the country.
We attended “The Mill” – the 20-somethings worship service that meets on Friday nights. They pack out the East theater every week with over 1000 college students and young adults. The worship band was amazing. As worship leaders, it’s not often we get to be on the other side of the microphone. But last night we had that opportunity, and the Lord really moved in our hearts. Not to mention, we came away with fresh ideas and insights to apply in our own setting.
After the service, we were privileged to meet Glen Packiam, one of New Life’s worship leaders as well as one of the front men for Desperation Band. Glenn is quickly becoming one of the nation’s premier songwriters and worship leaders. Tasha and I love meeting the people that God is using around the country in amazing ways. Definitely an honor.
Two things struck me about Glenn: 1. Humility – it radiates from him; and 2. Sincerity – though the atmosphere and quality of the band was second to none (even compared to some of the best rock shows I’ve been to), it wasn’t a show for Glenn. It wasn’t a performance. He wanted God’s people to enter into worship with him. And he made it easy to do so.
