    &: "Near" feat. Brian Holland

    For this "&" episode, we invite our friend and band pastor Brian Holland to talk about seasons of feeling near to God. Brian has been in full-time ministry for over 20 years, and has been on a journey discovering that he is not only LOVED by God, but also LIKED. This transformative thought process has completely changed the way he looks at life with God. We also spend time exploring what it looks like to bring God into more than just our "quiet time", and recognize that He is ALWAYS with us.

Listen as we share how this song was written, and then what changes it went through over the course of two years. We also discuss the recording process and the influences that helped make this song our guitar-heavy summer jam.

    &: Far feat. Ryan Ellis

    For this "&" episode, we invited our friend & fellow artist, Ryan Ellis, to talk about what our response should be in seasons of feeling far from God. Ryan has lived a lot of life, so he brings an incredible amount of wisdom to this topic. Seasons of feeling far from God are hard to admit at times, and instead of asking "God, where are You?", we hope this episode challenges you to ask some much more necessary and life-giving questions. Ryan recently released a 2-part project, "Lyfe" and "Rysponse."

Tune in to hear why it took so long to release, the changes it needed to go through along the way, and what influences we had throughout the process. We also share pieces of a few demos, as well as talk about the recording process.

In pursuit

These guys are not only amazing people, but there are phenomenal worship leaders. They exude Jesus so well. I love their hearts to teach us how to worship the Lord in season and out of season. Thank you for all you do! I am excited to continue to hear their pursuit of the Father and his Kingdom.
