I first meet Ryland Russell at the University of Central Oklahoma in 2003. He and his wife were working with my friend Tommy Haines of RealChurch at starting a worship experience on campus. It was an amazing experience seeing so many people connect with God. Ryland and his band led the worship and I had the privilege to run sound. When I left Waterloo Road to come to Arrow Heights I was tasked with finding my replacement and I only had one person in mind. Ryland is an amazing and gifted worship leader with many other amazing skills. This is starting to sound like a man-crush article. Scary.
So last night I saw that Ryland had posted a video of his band singing Jesus, Paid it All that I wanted to share with you guys. Watch the video, go to his web site, invite him to lead worship at your next event, buy his new album.
