Russ Lee is the mind behind Winter Jam, a lead member of NewSong, and before that was the lead singer for the group Truth. Dale and Russ have been good friends for years now and it was so much fun to have him on the show!
Russ has an incredible story of redemption, from selling drugs as a 17-year-old to now leading thousands of people in worship across the nation. In this conversation, we talk about his story, how we can keep from letting the approval of others drive our satisfaction, his favorite song he’s ever played, and some encouragement for every church leader.
1) “I didn’t find Jesus. He wasn’t lost. I was lost and He found me.” Russ’s story is amazing and God truly has shown up in his life over and over.
2) “We’re taking God’s opportunities and using our abilities to create something that can’t be sustained if the model gets broken.” Put simply: Who’s the Source?
3) “God is more concerned with you than with what you’re doing.” God just likes to be with you. He loves you. It’s not about how you’re performing for Him. It’s about how you’re connected to Him.
