“The harder you try to be ‘good’, the worse it gets. The more you look at how good your Savior is, the more you will flow as an artist.”
This and more was a part of my conversation with Bob Fitts.
Bob has been a worship leader for over 30 years, having recorded albums with Integrity and Maranatha music.
Bob travels the world extensively to lead worship in many nations and I’ve always appreciated his passion for the love of God.
This was a great conversation as we tackle his start in worship ministry, what he’s learned about the worshiping church across the world, as well as plenty of golden nuggets for worship leaders.
