What People are Saying About This
"Anytime I want to understand something, I want to hear from someone with informed perspective. And that is precisely who my friend Mark Powers is for worshipers everywhere. Going Full Circle will challenge you to think differently about worship and God's plan to reach the world through his worshipers. You need to read this important perspective from a veteran leader of worship and worship leaders."
Mike Harland, Director, LifeWay Worship
"I am frequently asked 'what about worship?' when discussing the missional church. Mark Powers helps us see that worship is central to the mission of the churchnot as a program, but as the engine that powers the life of the Jesus-follower, who is living a life of mission. This book is a great contribution to the whole missional conversation."
Reggie McNeal, Missional Leadership Specialist, Leadership Network
"Kristyn and I first met Mark Powers five years ago at a Monday morning gathering for South Carolina music directors. As we have corresponded and worked together since, we have constantly been encouraged by his passion to serve the church with every moment God has given himthrough music and songs of every description and in his interaction with local church music directors as well as composers and artists. His commitment to teaching, equipping, and encouraging at every level is admirable."
Keith Getty, Hymnwriter and Composer
