My journey wasn’t about coming back to worship leading. It was about coming back to God.” – Jeremy Riddle
What I love most about this conversation with Jeremy Riddle is his unrelenting passion for God Himself, not just worship. Too many of us are chasing worship careers and have lost sight of what it means to chase God and God alone.
So prepare for your heart to be stirred. This is what it’s all about. Jeremy and I discuss getting older in ministry, the new album, Bethel Music, keeping your heart alive, splitting word (yes), and so much more.
If you need to be encouraged and challenged, don’t miss this!

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.
