I have never been one to post a lot of videos about how great our church is or how amazing this or that is, because I know that there are so many churches (clarification - gatherings of believers that are a part of the larger "church") doing so many amazing things and I never want to feel like we are competing for attention or trying to outdo other churches or vying for people's attendance etc.
In reality, everything we do at Bridgeport is an attempt to downplay things. We don't have great lighting, our room is loud and very "live", we don't have huge screen with videos playing, our music team sits and plays without trying to draw any attention to themselves. We intentionally try to make Jesus the focal point.
With that being said, it's hard to not brag on the people in this video. As a worship leader for many years, I have played with a lot of musicians and singers but the people in this video are just some of my all time favorites and I get to be a part of seeing them love Jesus through musical worship week after week. There is nothing pretentious or self serving about any of them.
All I know is that the last month or so with these guys (and others) has been so rich with the presence of Jesus that I have trouble moving on with the service each week.
There are so many churches that express worship in so many ways that I love and respect, but I could not be more excited about what God is up to in our midst each week. It is so unique and I am so grateful for the people the Lord has allowed us to do it with. @bridgeport_kc #bridgeport #resurrectionsunday
