About The Podcast

“Praise the Lord.

Praise God in his sanctuary; praise him in his mighty heavens.

Praise him for his acts of power; praise him for his surpassing greatness.

Praise him with the sounding of the trumpet, praise him with the harp and lyre, praise him with tambourine and dancing, praise him with the strings and flute, praise him with clash of cymbals, praise him with resounding cymbals.

Let everything that has breath praise the Lord.

Praise the Lord.”

– Psalm 150

God, Guitars & Gear is a podcast for anyone and everyone connected to worship ministry: a worship pastor, a staffer, a volunteer, or someone who has an interest in worship ministry and guitar.  You’ll find tips, techniques, recommendations, and encouragement in every episode, coming from great guests, listeners, or even from the host (even a blind squirrel finds a nut sometimes).

God, Guitars & Gear has a lot to do with guitars, amps, effects, and accessories, but the most important aspect of the podcast is relaying how it all fits together to glorify God.  Subscribe and prepare yourself to be pushed, prodded, encouraged and edified; we’ll dive into the Word, dwell on some powerful passages, and do our best to apply it to our lives and our passions as worship ministry guitarists.

A word about the host…

My name is Chris Wayne, and I’ve been walking a winding road with Jesus Christ since 1987. I’m VERY thankful God is so loving, so merciful, and so forgetful when it comes to all my blunders.  I’m married to a wonderful, beautiful, insanely strong woman and have two amazingly unique and gifted kids.

God dropped the idea of playing guitar into my lap when I was fourteen, and the 1987 Gibson SG you see at left came when my dad realized I was too stubborn to give it up (even though I was terrible).  Like that SG, I’ve gone through a lot of changes as a person and a player.  But since I began playing praise and worship music in 2010, God has afforded me some amazing opportunities for growth spiritually and musically.  Currently, I’m a volunteer guitarist and troublemaker with the worship team at River Christian Church in the Jacksonville, FL area.
