“I write my best songs when I get lost in His presence” - Jonathan Helser.Jonathan and Melissa Helser long to empower those they encounter with the truth that Jesus died to be with us and vibrantly lives inside of us. In 2007, The Helsers hosted their first discipleship school called the 18 Inch Journey, named for the distance between the head and the heart. Jonathan joined us to speak on the mission of this school, spontaneous worship moments, and the unique recording process of The Land I’m Livin' In: “We wanted this school and this land to be embedded into the fabric of the album.”
On the heels of her debut album CLARITY, DOE joins us for an episode on bridging the worlds of secular and worship music.

Our first podcast episode of 2022 is a special one. Songwriter, father, husband, mentor and worship pastor at The Austin Stone, Aaron Ivey joins us to speak on the crucial topic of Racial Reconciliation and how it is intrinsically linked with the message of the Gospel. Our host Chris Baker and Aaron are both a part of multicultural families and they share how that has influenced their worship leading, preaching and how they live life. “Reconciliation is what we’re told heaven will look like. Why wait for heaven to have true reconciling happen?”
Carlos Whittaker is a People’s Choice Award winner, a former recording artist, a social media maven, and currently spends the majority of his time writing books and speaking on stages around the world. Carlos fearlessly confronts tough topics and encourages a culture of healthy communication, giving the people who engage with his content the opportunity to focus on helping and serving one another, and looking past each other’s differences. On our final episode of 2021, Carlos and Kristian lean into the wisdom from his book, Kill the Spider: Getting Rid of What's Really Holding You Back (2017). Carlos unpacks his own personal “cobwebs” and defines “killing the spider” as breaking the agreements we’ve made, either knowingly or subconsciously, with lies that are typically sown in childhood. He urges us to confess, reject and replace these lies by immersing ourselves in scripture, and declaring who we are as sons and daughters in Christ.

Darlene Zschech, globally-acclaimed composer, worship leader, pastor, author and speaker, joined us to speak on Empowering Women In Ministry and what anchoring your identity in Christ through cultivating a culture of encouragement looks like. She shared with us how leading worship as a woman looked different in certain parts of the world, but that whatever obstacles she faced, she always reminded herself that she was ultimately there to serve and praise. She declares “there’s nothing about inequality that pleases the heart of God” and that the Church has a long way to go, but we’re on the move.
Joel Houston, world-renowned songwriter and worship leader of Hillsong UNITED, reminds us that our purpose is “in the dig” and “in the search” of the creative process. Joel speaks to his hope of reaching the person who’s lost faith with the songs God has blessed him with, how success can be an enemy to art, the missional aspects of all the projects under Hillsong, and more. We hope this conversation reminds you of the purpose we find in both the creative process and in the sanctification of the faith journey. 
We are so excited to kick off Season 3 of The Worship & Technology Podcast with this conversation on why Music is Great, but Jesus is Greater with Bob Kauflin! Author of Worship Matters and True Worshipers, and pastor at Sovereign Grace Ministries since 1985, Bob remind us to live in the good of what we’re singing about; to intuit what is happening in the souls of one’s congregation. Rather than focusing on the technical nuances of worship, he encourages us to focus on what we can do to encourage the clear vision of the work and the words of Christ. We think this conversation that Kristian accurately describes as a master class very convicting. Listen everywhere! Kristian says this message is so powerful because Bob is so musical. Calls this episode a master class. Bob Kauflin is a pastor, composer, speaker, writer, and the director of Sovereign Grace Music, a ministry of Sovereign Grace Churches.

"We can often complicate creativity. God’s truth is simple."David also speaks on authentic worship leading and that Hillsong is a byproduct of the real success story: that Jesus is going to build His church where He says He’s going to build it. For more on David Ware visit: | Find us at & follow us @multitracks / @multitracksgospel

Pat Barrett (@patbarrett) comes on the podcast to break down the songs on his upcoming album and the place they came from. He talks about how the success of “Good Good Father” was one of the truest examples of the notion that someone else can be helped in their faith journey by something you’ve personally walked through, how “true religion is camera shy,” and how resisting the incentive of being overly performative with our prayer and worship may seem counter-intuitive in this day and age but is so crucial. Act Justly, Love Mercy, Walk Humbly is coming February 26th.
