Michael Bethany of Gateway Worship has been through a lot of transitions in his life. This episode of our devotional podcast, The Walk, starts when Michael was a boy growing up in his father’s church and he heard the call to go into ministry.
Michael recently released an album called, Overflow, and it delivers a live worship experience featuring a multicultural sound of worship birthed out of Michael’s personal overflow of intimacy with God that was fostered and developed through the many transitions that Michael has walked through.
Genesis 12:1 (NIV) – The Call of Abram – The Lord had said to Abram, “Go from your country, your people and your father’s household to the land I will show you.”
