Night of Worship: Alec

We sat down to talk with band member Alec Ward to hear about his perspective being on stage during Night of Worship.

"It's incredible to see the flood of untethered freedom rush in and watch God move throughout the room."

Q–What makes Night of Worship special to you?

AW–For me personally, Night of Worship is a space where my heart can quiet itself and listen. It allows space to hear God's voice in the chaos and daily routine.

Q–What is unique about the structure of Night of Worship?

AW–The worship leader sets the agenda, based in prayer and discussion with the band, for that specific night.  The main goal for Night of  Worship is being in His presence, worshipping Him and listening for what He says to us.  As a result, the band and facilitators thoughout the night lead by listening. It's incredible to see the flood of untethered freedom rush in and watch God move throughout the room.

Q–Is it challenging to rely on the Holy spirit inside the structure of playing music?

AW–At times, yes. We (as a band) only know the songs we've practiced in advance. The order of the songs is based on what is happening in the room. That mentality makes the night raw and centered on Him. It's honestly a little unnerving at times, but there's freedom in relying on Jesus while we play.
