Is the Church playing it safe when it comes to creativity?

In podcast episode 104, we are honored to be joined by Jordan Holt (Worship Online Instructor/Guitarist for Kari Jobe) to talk about redefining your creativity and the importance of taking risks!

Creativity in definition is about doing something NEW.

If you want to thrive in life you have to be willing to get uncomfortable. You have to be willing to try new things with no predictable outcome and you need to be willing to embrace failure.

“Failure is an option here. If things are not failing you are not innovating.” – Elon Musk

In episode 104, we talk about the importance of surrounding yourself with people who are moving forward, how Christ modeled creativity, and how much we can impact the church if we were only willing to take more RISKS.
