Performer, worship leader joins Hope for the World

"Without the platform, I had lost who I was and even what my life was about," he said. "Over the next couple of years, God would show me that He was not mad at me or finished with me. Truly I found that He was pursuing me. God would redirect my path toward one of worship leader. The main difference in this was trying to learn how to lead on stage and yet get out of the way and point all attention to Christ. I know that Christian music should always be about that, but sadly for me it had not been. This was a growing experience."

The Chapel at Crosspoint is the second church Mullins has served as worship leader.

"The main change from performing concerts to worship leader is that I serve in the same church for most of the time. My traveling has greatly reduced in the past five years."

Mullins said that in a concert setting an artist plans to take the audience on a trip with a style of music or a certain message.

"In worship leading the desire is to encourage the audience to engage in communication with their heavenly Father," Mullins said. "The bible says that God inhabits the praise of His people. How powerful is that? To know that if we lift Him up, He will come and take up residence in our midst. I have personally seen this happen upon quite a few occasions and it is like nothing I can explain."

Hope for the World

In 1993, Mullins' parents began a full time ministry with Hope for the World, a faith based humanitarian organization that provides for the needs of the poor and orphaned children while sharing hope in Christ.
