This episode of The Walk features worship artist, songwriter, and worship leader Patrick Mayberry and his wisdom could apply to anyone leading a team in any setting. He brings a great combination of practical advice for those on worship teams, as well as some great inspiration based on 2 Corinthians 10.
2 Corinthians 10:4-5 (ESV) For the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh but have divine power to destroy strongholds. We destroy arguments and every lofty opinion raised against the knowledge of God, and take every thought captive to obey Christ…
For those of us in leadership, having a grasp on the vision God has given you for your business, church, or ministry, and passing that vision along to your team can not only inspire, but it can motivate your team to pursue excellence in the practical applications of their giftings. The abilities that God has given us, when used for Kingdom purpose, destroys lies and attacks set against us in the spiritual realm that manifest in the physical realm.
Use your “weapons” today, whether that be leading worship, doing taxes, or fixing cars, for God’s glory and you’ll see strongholds destroyed, in the mighty name of Jesus.

Music by Patrick Mayberry
Who is Patrick Mayberry?
Cookeville, Tennessee native Patrick Mayberry first fell in love with worship music at a Passion conference in 2006. Twelve years later the worship leader, singer, guitarist and songwriter signed his first publishing deal with Centricity Publishing (publishing home of Lauren Daigle, Jordan Feliz, Katy Nichole, etc.), and recorded and released his independent EP, Joy, followed by Live In My Living Room in 2019. Along with Centricity Publishing, Centricity Music (record label) caught the vision of Patrick’s artistry and signed him as an artist as well, which led to the release of his EP Holy Spirit Come in 2021. The title track hit the Top 15 at Christian radio, and recently the Top 200 on CCLI’s Top 2,000 US chart; and “Breakthrough Miracle Power” made a significant splash as well. This launched Patrick into his first two nationwide tours in 2022 – the Songs & Stories Tour with Cory Asbury and the My People Tour (along with Crowder, We The Kingdom, Anne Wilson and more). Mayberry is currently in the studio recording songs for his next project to be released in 2023.
In addition to writing and recording his own music, Patrick has penned songs that have been recorded by Passion, Josh Baldwin, David Leonard, Chris Renzema, Mack Brock, Pat Barrett, North Point Worship, among others. He’s also garnered sync placements with T-Mobile, NBA, the “TODAY” show and more. Mayberry, his wife Jenny, and their four children live in Franklin, Tennessee.
