Had so much fun chatting with @henryseeley on this week’s #MadeItInMusic Podcast.
So thankful to have him and @alexseeley leading our church @thebelongingco and his eye for absolutely top notch quality art and music.
He is a forward thinker. Forward thinkers are on the frontlines of change, and are thus often misunderstood or criticized, because what they are doing is truly a part of changing a city.
A lot of people may gloss over this fact or even dismiss it as “it’s just another church movement that’s all about mega production”. I say in fact the opposite is true. I believe we as believers aren’t called to a poverty mentality. We are called to abundance, and to creating top notch art, along with anyone else out there. Some of us are meant to serve in the city streets and work with the homeless and be immersed in poverty. Others are called and gifted to create art and experiences that create an atmosphere for people to encounter God, and to do this, it has to be done well, otherwise it comes off as a “poor man’s version of”. And why would people want that? They don’t need it. As @alexseeley so aptly says, “if they want Katy Perry then they should go see @katyperry.
One interesting note: a lot of the homeless population in Nashville is included in these experiences as the church is right in the epicenter of some of the city’s worst poverty, right next to “misery mile”), and many are coming to church and having these same encounters and experiencing life change.
Here’s what I’m trying to say in a very long-winded manner: If you don’t know @henryseeley @alexseeley or @thebelongingco , come and hang out with us.
Start by checking out the music that @thebelongingco has put out on @spotifychristian @spotify @applemusic and services everywhere. The record is so inspiring.

I really can’t say enough great things about him and his incredible story. Just go listen for yourself.
