039 – Adam Ranney | Worship Leading, Songwriting & Relationships

Adam began music ministry in his home church at age 16, as part of the worship team. At the age of 19 Adam felt a tug in his heart for full-time music ministry, and with that stepped out on faith with the pursuit of God in mind.  Adam has said, “If I can help raise the bar of worship in a church, by encouraging/mentoring their team, I know it will produce fruit in the congregation which will lead to the community.  Where there are God encounters, there are life changing moments”.
