Knowing Your Ministry Calling and Purpose with Wade Joye

Show Notes

Show Notes:

Huge milestone for us, 350 Episodes of our show!

In the last year, we’ve had some amazing guests on the show.
Folks like Phil Joel from the Newsboys, Dr. Gary Chapman, Carey Nieuwhof, Gabe Lyons, Alex Kendrick, Will Doggett, Lee Strobel, Dennis Worley, William Vanderbloemen and dozens of other incredible guests.

We’ve talked about production, worship leading, staffing trends and culture, songwriting, church websites, changing your ‘church online’ game and more. We’re having so much fun. And we’re not slowing down!

This week, our guest is former Elevation Church Worship Leader Wade Joye.

Wade Joye served as the Worship Pastor at Elevation Church under the leadership of Pastor Steven Furtick for over 14 years until transitioning off of staff in late 2021 to serve churches across the country through his teaching and coaching ministry.

During his time at Elevation, Wade oversaw the development of worship culture and staffing for over 20 locations, and spearheaded the growth and pastoring of Elevation Worship.

In addition to building worship culture across all Elevation locations, Wade was instrumental in creating the systems that allowed Elevation Worship songs to go around the world as he led the record label and touring teams.

He brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the topics of Worship Leading, leadership, culture and more.

We’re very excited to welcome Wade Joye.
