Worship leader Kristian Stanfill sits down with host Nancy Turner to share about his part in creating Passion’s latest album, Worthy of Your Name, recorded live in the Georgia Dome with the help of several thousand college students. What they came away with was over a dozen songs proclaiming God’s love and declaring that He is indeed worthy of His name. Don’t miss this up close & personal conversation with Kristian Stanfill on Moody Radio’s This is the Day podcast!
From all outward appearances, Kristian Stanfill was like a lot of teenage kids growing up in the suburbs in the 90’s in a fairly typical American home. He went to church, loved music, and even taught himself to play guitar. As soon as the church youth group heard he could play a few chords, he immediately became the so-called “Worship Leader.” He learned songs by DC Talk and Audio Adrenaline, and eventually Passion and Chris Tomlin. While the upbringing might have been typical, the kid was not. He didn’t just pick up the guitar because it was cool. He picked it up because, even without knowing how to play a single instrument, he had been writing songs in his head for years. He recognized a profound need to praise this God he was discovering, and he learned guitar to give voice to that praise
