We have too many kids with guitars and not enough shepherds.” – Dustin Smith
One of my favorite people to talk to about worship is Dustin Smith. Tacos is also another great topic of conversation. And this chat involves both. Dustin leads many streams in his ministry, Here Be Lions, and we talk all about what God is doing.
But also consider this podcast a good kick in the pants. It’s honest. It’s challenging. It’s important.

This podcast is brought to you by the We Are Worship Conference in Dallas, Texas October 10-12. One of my favorite quotes is from Mark Batterson – “A change of pace plus a change of place equals a change in perspective.” Conferences are a great way to rub shoulders with people doing the same thing.

Today’s podcast is brought to you by Coresound. Coresound is an amazing new company that provides pad loops for your worship services.
What are pad loops, you may say? Essentially, it’s like the best keyboard sound or guitar swell you’ve ever heard, sitting underneath your live worship team. It’s helps to create a beautiful, patient atmosphere for your worship team and fill out the sound.
They’re a great investment if you have a smaller worship team or if you have a large team but want to create a bigger sound and improve your transitions. We’ve used them quite a bit at my church. We’ve actually done a two piece setup with me on a guitar, pad loops, and a drum pad and it sounds HUGE. And of all the pads I’ve tried, Coresound are the best sounding. By far.
I have the Deluxe bundle which comes with 6 different sounding pads in all 12 keys. It’s amazing because you literally have an arsenal of versatility for your worship team. Load them up on your smartphone, tablet, or laptop and you’re good to go. Whatever you play within the key of the pad loop sounds amazing, and each pad lasts for about 20 minutes.
So here’s the deal: head on over to coresoundpads.com and use the promo code “beyondsunday” and get yourself 20% off any purchase.
