"I have had the privilege of experiencing both a service at Journey Church and an up-close view of the vital relationship between Nelson Searcy and Jason Hatley. These two guys model a strong pastor/worship arts leader connection that is deeply respectful, mutually supportive, and practical in its day-to-day systems. Most importantly, Nelson and Jason are driven to create church services that result in life transformation. I highly recommend this book as a tool for all of us who are passionate about creating life-changing hours on Sunday mornings week after week."--Nancy Beach, Champion for the Arts, Willow Creek Association
"Jason Hatley is a trusted voice in the worship community, and also has an incredible God-given gift for mentoring worship leaders. His insights are very helpful as they come from a proven track record and a pure desire to worship God fully."--Rick Muchow, Pastor of Worship, Saddleback Church
