“True worship is discipleship among the believers in the room and evangelistic among those who are not yet believers.” – Brett Perkins
“The student pastor is the biggest influencer of worship in a room because the students are looking to you for how to posture themselves in worhsip.” – Brett Perkins
Brett Perkins is a songwriter and worship leader from rural West TN (Greenfield). Growing up, sports and the outdoors is all he knew, but over time music became a passion. For the past 10 years, Brett has traveled the country leading worship at various camps, events, and churches. In a world where truth is relative and clarity is (seemingly) absent, Brett has given his life to writing and leading clear truth for people to cling to and proclaim. Brett is the founding member of the band, Journey Worship Co., and serves as the worship pastor at The Journey Church in Lebanon, TN, where he lives with his wife, Megan, and three boys – Keaten, Griffey, and Louis.
