Jake Cartmell

Class of 2014

 

"In my experience with contemporary worship ministry, I have learned two main things: As much as I believe in, and have seen the significance of, worship leaders needing to be the leaders of cultural, artistic, and theological relevance and innovation, even more so do I believe that worship leaders need to develop an unrelenting love and passion for people.  It is critically important to keep pushing contemporary worship in a healthy direction towards cultural innovation, artistic excellence, and theological strength, but if the large scale vision causes us to fail in relation to intimacy, love, and the pastoral shepherding of our people, then I would argue we have dismissed our primary pastoral mission all together.  My education and experience in the Worship Arts program at Judson University helped mold me into a person who has come to appreciate and understand this truth."
