who we are
what people are saying
"I call Greg Johnson the godfather of worship music. I'm not sure if he likes that but it’s said with great admiration and is not to imply any type of criminal activity whatsoever. When several of us in RSB and David Crowder's band were starting out, Greg was a voice of encouragement and guidance for us. He lives in the tension between artistry and service as a worship pastor. He is continually pouring himself into younger artists and worship leaders with the David Project. In a day where little training, counsel or wisdom is offered to young songwriters and worship leaders, Greg is taking a huge step in developing and nurturing the next generation of leaders in worship."
Robbie Seay – Worship Pastor
& EMI Recording Artist
"After being on the road for 20 years I have found out that there are many worship followers, but only a few worship leaders. Many bands are arising on the worship scene with very little spiritual or practical training and my prayer has been that would change. My good friend Greg Johnson has put together the David Project to raise up a generation of worship leaders and writers to know, understand, and apply the calling that God has given them. It is one of the best resources in worship to understand ALL elements of worship, both on and off the stage."
Wade Morris , Itinerant Minister
"Greg Johnson served on our WoodsEdge Church staff team for nearly 14 years. In that time he built an incredible worship ministry that in many ways was a model for our community and our area. Now, through The David Project, he and his team are able to potentially have a greater impact to the church at-large. Their expertise in every facet of worship and programming is an asset to any church needing coaching or training. I highly recommend them to you!"
Jeff Wells, Senior Pastor
WoodsEdge Community Church
"The David Project has been incredibly instrumental to the success and growth of our church's video venue. We reached a place where we were facility challenged and already running 4 services a weekend. We added a video venue with a full live worship team and entirely new production team. Within a month, the David Project had staffed the entire venue for us and with Leann Francis at the helm for producing, we are now into our second year of a successful video venue experience that is buying us time till more facilities are available. In addition, we sent our 2 worship leaders through their 12-week worship leader intensive and it has paid huge dividends! We saw a drastic positive change in our worship leaders within weeks of starting their program. What Greg and Leann bring to the table is of the highest quality and would benefit churches of any size. We would not be the church we are today without The David Project."
Tim Barosh, Associate Lead Pastor
Lone Star Cowboy Church
"I am so thankful for the training I received through The David Project. I appreciate that I not only received teaching on the heart of worship, but also the technical aspects of leading worship. I love the hands-on approach, and learning by doing. I had the opportunity to run my own rehearsal, and even lead a worship set all in a safe environment where I received immediate feedback. That is priceless. The David Project took my worship leading to a whole new level. They gave me the opportunity to live out my calling. They even helped me find a job as a full time Worship Arts Director at a thriving church! Wow! I love this program!"
Randi Morrow, Worship Arts Director
The Light Community Fellowship
"It is safe to say I would not be where I am today without Greg Johnson and the David Project. Although I had performed music and “led” worship, my most positive growth as a worshipper and leader came through The David Project. The practical lessons regarding the musical, technical, administrative and spiritual disciplines required to be an effective leader, as well as the care and encouragement given to me and my calling were life changing. These are lessons I try to instill in my own team. Thanks to The David Project team. I am a better worshiper, a better leader, and a better worship leader."
Kevin Dailey, Contemporary Music Director
Memorial Drive Presbyterian Church
"Participating in The David Project was a wonderful experience for me. Though I felt a call to music ministry and an organic draw to reaching others through worship, I lacked essential skills needed to become a primary worship leader. The program gave me the tools I needed; everything from reading and interpreting charts to running effective band rehearsals. I also learned how to connect who God has made me to be with the congregation in practical and spiritual ways, allowing me to lead from an authentic yet confident place. Greg Johnson's passion and charisma creates an exciting culture that fosters growth and courage. I could never have imagined in the beginning that I would now be a Music Pastor in a church. As I live out the beautiful adventure of leading a congregation in music, I am thankful every day for the journey The David Project afforded me."
