Right before the Pandemic hit back in March, host, Brenton Miles, sat down with Leeland Mooring and had an incredible conversation about his journey in worship and music. We delayed these episodes in light of current events, but are thrilled to be releasing them now in 2 parts over the next 2 weeks.
Leeland came to the forefront of the worship music world in 2004 and debuted their first project, the revolutionary Sound of Melodies, in 2006. Fast forward to now with four GRAMMY® nominations and eight GMA Dove Award® nominations under their belts, Leeland has become one of the most important voices in a new generation of worship music.
Their lives, ministry, and music are a true extension of their passion to simply worship God personally and in community.
In episode 121, Leeland shares about his early childhood, his experience with the ministry as a kid, church planting, and how he developed his writing.
“I don’t want to write songs filled with my thoughts about God,” Mooring shares about his music motivations. “I want to write songs filled with what God thinks about everything. It isn’t my words or ideas about my circumstances that change me, but it’s when I use my voice to speak the words of life that come from Jesus’ mouth that change me.”
