We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
One of the MANY challenges that I faced earlier in my career was finding out how to use the talents that were given to me in a way that was relevant, but not lacking in substance.
Once I began to understand what was substantial to God, then my desires became His desires and doors began to open that I had been preparing for.
But I soon realized I had a selfish way of viewing music. I thought that it was for my own glory. I wanted to be better than the next musician or I wanted to impress the cute girl in the audience, now my wife Stephanie Greer (guess it worked lol), either way it always rooted in my own vanity. I wanted this to change and that is what birthed “SAX MINISTRY.” Now I have found a way to ministrate, not to others but for others.
SAX MINISTRY – what should we know? What do you guys do best? What sets you apart from the competition?
SAX MINISTRY is a brand dedicated to serving God fervently and healing his people through music. We take the meekness about Christianity and popularize it through music, fashion, and pop culture.
Has luck played a meaningful role in your life and business?
Unfortunately, I don’t believe in luck. It’s God’s Plan.
