“In anything you lead by example and how you lead will determine how others lead.”
In this Worship Sound Bite, Hope Darst talks us through her relationship with her Lead Pastor. This sentiment established how Hope’s team is supported by their leader and how it’s created a healthy environment focused on each individuals heart.
As a worship leader at The Belonging Co. Hope sits under Henry and Alex Seeley. Inspired by the great leadership she’s experienced she feels called to serve the Seeley’s by collaborating on the churches vision. So many Worship Leaders look to the Pastor for that vision, but the successful collaboration between all of the leaders at The Belonging Co. has created a thriving environment where the “gold in people” is pulled out and cultivated.

Over the past 15 years, Hope Darst, has been leading worship, growing her family and serving the local church. She wears many titles…wife, mother, worship leader and songwriter. In 2013, after a decade of being in full-time ministry and on staff at her local church, Hope found herself in a season of transition as she focused on being a full-time mom. During this time, Hope and her family visited a small gathering of people in a basement and encountered the presence of God in a new way. “I had been “doing ministry” for so long that I had ignored so many parts of my heart and life that needed ministry. I was desperate for healing and a fresh encounter with God. That year of rest became the foundation for discovering a new way of living with Christ. Week after week I would enter God’s presence during worship and the word and experience deep emotional and mental healing that I had long thought was impossible.” This “gathering” would eventually become what is now The Belonging Co. church.
