This week marked the end of the 2017 General Assembly for the Church of the Nazarene, held every four years in Indianapolis Indiana.

I had the privilege of being on two different panels at the Spirit and Truth mini conference while at General Assembly. The conference was sponsored by Nazarene Theological Seminary and the NNU Wesley Society.
In the links below you will find the recordings from both sessions, also featuring Andrea Garcia and Brannon Hancock.

  Brannon Hancock and Andrew Garcia join Rick Lee James for a conversation on worship in the context of small, medium, and large churches. 

Rick Lee James and Brannon Hancock present Hymn Adaptation and Modernization.

  • Listen to all episodes of Voices In My Head featuring Paul Baloche, Walter Brueggemann, Brian Zahnd, Brandon Sipes, Andrew Peterson, Stephen Tobolowsky, Jason Gray, Michael Card and many, many more.

I’m grateful to CCLI for featuring two more of my songs, published by Lifeway Worship. Two more of my music videos were just added to CCLI TV today. Special thanks to the directors of the two videos, Rick Stull (Christ Is Lord) and Jason Elam (The Invitation). This makes the third song from ‘Hymns, Prayers, and Invitations’ to be featured by CCLI.

CCLI is the easiest way to discover and legally use affordable media, content and resources while reducing the administrative headaches of copyright licensing search and compliance. … The best place to find licensed audio samples and lyrics along with vocal, chord and lead sheets from more than 300,000 songs of worship.
