The VIVIT band originally had David Attebery as their instructor. Before he moved, he truly left an indelible imprint of Christ on their lives. Mr. Attebery highly recommended that we contact Neil Greenhaw to take his place.
The first meeting with Mr. Greenhaw was essentially him introducing himself and his passion to teach the next generation of worship leaders. He then asked them the hard questions as he inspired them to think Biblically about why they play. It was excellent.
What stood out was when he said, "I will have failed if, within the time we spend together, all you have done is grow in your skill and not in your love for the Lord and the desire to give Him glory."
In other words, if you are just doing this for fun and to get better at singing or playing your instrument, then you are doing this for the wrong reasons.
"Whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do it ALL for the glory of God."--I Corinthians 10:31
Mr. Attebery has sent an e-mail. He misses you guys and is excited to hear of what the Lord is accomplishing in your lives. He also wanted to make sure that at the next lesson with Mr. Greenhaw, you all thump him on the head and tell him it is from Mr. Attebery. :-D
