What church leaders are saying about Rhythms of Grace:

“Mike has served the church well with Rhythms of Grace. I was both convicted and compelled as I read it.”
—Matt Chandler, Lead Pastor, The Village Church, Flower Mound, Texas; author, The Explicit Gospel

“This is an important book for folks thinking about what it is to be a musician, a worship leader, and everything in between.”
—Sandra McCracken, singer-songwriter

“In this season of the Church, there is some confusion on why and what a worship leader is and does. This book brings great clarity to that confusion . . . an important piece in training new leaders, and a great reminder to more seasoned leaders, to sing the gospel and above all, highlight Jesus.”
—Charlie Hall, Worship and Arts Director, Frontline Church, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma
