You can’t fake passion for ministry. This kind of passion comes from a burden developed by love for God, and love for souls. Cortt Chavis is a great example of someone who has this kind of passion. I first met Cortt Chavis at a music conference in St. Louis. My first impression of him was that he was a sincere, passionate individual who was sold out to the cause of spreading the Gospel of Jesus Christ. He is a dynamic singer, worship leader, and minister who has ministered at conferences and camp-meetings across the United States. He is currently starting a church, Truth Chapel, in Loganville, GA. Bro. Chavis was kind enough to sit down with me at a recent youth camp and talk about his experiences in ministry. I know that you will be blessed as you listen to this interview.
