In this episode of Ask Shane B, Jeremy and Shane break down what it means to use lights, audio, and stage design in a way that resources the church, instead of taking the focus away from the Lord.

    From time to time most worship leaders will hear something along the lines of, “thanks for ushering in the Holy Spirit” or “you did a great job of ushering in the Holy Spirit”.  How should we respond to these statements, and even more importantly, how should we think about this idea and ensure that our theology is accurately informed by God’s Word?  In this episode Shane digs into what God’s Word has to say about the Holy Spirit, our role as worship leaders, and discusses how we can pursue being intentional with our semantics when leading the Church.
