Impacting the Next Generation | Aaron Keyes

September 28, 2017

“If you lost your voice tomorrow, would your church still recognize you as a spiritual leader on Sunday?”

That is the question that worship pastor and artist Aaron Keyes posed to us at the 2017 Worship Together Conference. Through 10,000 Fathers, he is working to “raise up an army of men and women who are not only gifted musicians, but would be elders in their churches even if they didn't play music.”

Aaron believes that we have more than enough teachers, but not nearly enough spiritual fathers and mothers raising up leaders. Over the last decade Aaron and the team at 10,000 Fathers have gone beyond teaching spiritual growth, to pouring their lives into the next generation as spiritual fathers and mothers. To hear him explain it, “We are taught for our whole lives in church, grow, grow, grow. Most of the teaching, most of the training, most of the resources go to our growth. That’s good. We need to grow spiritually, but it’s not all about you growing. At some point it needs to become about you reproducing.”

After 15 years in ministry that has included leading worship around the world, writing and ministering to thousands Keyes says, "I realized that I’ve mislead as much worship as I’ve lead.”, a sentiment that many of us can relate to. You can hear more about this and a lot more on this week's episode of the Worship Together podcast.
