  • DANIEL- My friend, that isjust a little taste of what we
  • 00:07:46.291 --> 00:07:48.527
  • are experiencing in Africa dayin and day out, and have been
  • 00:07:48.660 --> 00:07:51.763
  • now for more than 30 years.Since 1987, we've seen over 80
  • 00:07:51.897 --> 00:07:56.701
  • million people come to Christin these massive gospel
  • 00:07:56.835 --> 00:08:00.071
  • campaigns in Africa. And thesearen't just estimations that
  • 00:08:00.205 --> 00:08:02.641
  • we're talking about here. I'mtalking about people that
  • 00:08:02.774 --> 00:08:05.377
  • heard the clear presentationof the Gospel. They lifted
  • 00:08:05.510 --> 00:08:09.080
  • their hands, they prayed witha counselor, they gave us
  • 00:08:09.214 --> 00:08:11.416
  • their contact information, andthey were ushered into local
  • 00:08:11.550 --> 00:08:13.718
  • churches to be discipled. Wereally believe that the end
  • 00:08:13.852 --> 00:08:17.455
  • result of evangelism has tolead into the local church
  • 00:08:17.589 --> 00:08:20.559
  • because Jesus didn't say, Goand make converts. He said, Go
  • 00:08:20.692 --> 00:08:23.194
  • and make disciples. And so,that's what we are doing. And
  • 00:08:23.328 --> 00:08:25.931
  • my friend, if you have a heartthat burns for this, we live
  • 00:08:26.064 --> 00:08:29.234
  • in the greatest moment ofharvest in the history of the
  • 00:08:29.367 --> 00:08:32.470
  • world. And if your heart isburning as ours is, I want to
  • 00:08:32.604 --> 00:08:35.040
  • invite you to stand with us asone of our monthly ministry
  • 00:08:35.173 --> 00:08:37.976
  • partners. Our monthly partnersare very, very special to us.

  • really looking forward tothat. But as we were watching
  • 00:09:40.105 --> 00:09:42.507
  • the play back, and you'reremembering some of what
  • 00:09:42.641 --> 00:09:45.577
  • happened there in, in Africawhen, when we did that, that
  • 00:09:45.710 --> 00:09:48.647
  • CD, what goes through yourheart, what goes through yourmind when you see that?
  • 00:09:48.780 --> 00:09:51.683
  • EDDIE- Oh my God, I lost mymind. (Daniel laughing) I'll
  • 00:09:51.816 --> 00:09:54.452
  • never forget it. Oh my gosh,just to praise and to hear
  • 00:09:54.586 --> 00:09:58.423
  • that sound, that roar. It'salmost like the audio on CD
  • 00:09:58.556 --> 00:10:03.528
  • and DVD doesn't really...You've got to be there. I
  • 00:10:03.662 --> 00:10:07.065
  • just... Everybody that can,you need to go one time in
  • 00:10:07.198 --> 00:10:09.167
  • your life. It's absolutelycrazy to hear that roar, that
  • 00:10:09.300 --> 00:10:13.238
  • sound go up to heaven. Now Iwas, I lost my mind. I
  • 00:10:13.371 --> 00:10:16.708
  • wanted to run out over thatplace. It was so good.
  • 00:10:16.841 --> 00:10:20.211
  • DANIEL- You know, Eddie, youare, you are known around the
  • 00:10:20.345 --> 00:10:22.614
  • world as a worship leader; andone of the best, my favorite.
  • 00:10:22.747 --> 00:10:27.519
  • EDDIE- I appreciate that.
  • 00:10:27.652 --> 00:10:28.820
  • DANIEL- But you, you are,you're not just a singer.
  • 00:10:28.953 --> 00:10:30.321
  • You're not just a musician.You're, you have a very deep
  • 00:10:30.455 --> 00:10:32.457
  • well of experience with theHoly Spirit and a Word that
  • 00:10:32.590 --> 00:10:35.727
  • you carry. What is it that Godis, God is speaking to your
  • 00:10:35.860 --> 00:10:38.730
  • right now? What's, what's onyour heart at the moment?
  • 00:10:38.863 --> 00:10:41.666
  • EDDIE- Oh jeez, I, I reallyfeel like there is a, you know
  • 00:10:41.800 --> 00:10:48.873
  • in Revelation, I know for methere's just calling back to
  • 00:10:49.007 --> 00:10:51.776
  • the first love. And with somuch that's happening in our
  • 00:10:51.910 --> 00:10:56.881
  • nation and our world, I reallybelieve that there's an
  • 00:10:57.015 --> 00:10:59.184
  • awakening that's happening.And for a lot of people who
  • 00:10:59.317 --> 00:11:01.953
  • have kind of like the churchof Ephesus, they have
  • 00:11:02.087 --> 00:11:05.090
  • perfected what it means to dochurch, but have lost what it
  • 00:11:05.223 --> 00:11:08.793
  • means to be in love. Andsometimes God has to allow
  • 00:11:08.927 --> 00:11:12.030
  • some things to shake us, totake us back to that. So, for
  • 00:11:12.163 --> 00:11:14.899
  • me, I just, not that I don'tthink, not that I have
  • 00:11:15.033 --> 00:11:18.870
  • intended that flame, but it'sjust going deeper in me.
  • 00:11:19.003 --> 00:11:22.340
  • Remember the moments where itwas simple to be at the altar
  • 00:11:22.474 --> 00:11:25.276
  • and just love Him, and thenhave it, it wasn't about a
  • 00:11:25.410 --> 00:11:28.146
  • title. It wasn't about EddieJames, the known worship
  • 00:11:28.279 --> 00:11:31.049
  • leader. It's just been, I justlove Jesus. And, and going
  • 00:11:31.182 --> 00:11:34.819
  • back to that moment oftenderness when it was simple,
  • 00:11:34.953 --> 00:11:39.424
  • you know. So, that's what'shappening. And, and I believe,
  • 00:11:39.557 --> 00:11:41.793
  • I believe the church is beingcalled to that. And how does,
  • 00:11:41.926 --> 00:11:44.896
  • how does your ministry withworship, how do you connect
  • 00:11:45.029 --> 00:11:47.799
  • people with that? Becauseit seems like those two
  • 00:11:47.932 --> 00:11:50.135
  • things would go handin hand very well.
  • 00:11:50.268 --> 00:11:53.104
  • EDDIE- Well, you know, I,there are times when, you
  • 00:11:53.238 --> 00:11:56.741
  • know, I have this approach. Icall it God, me, and my piano.
  • 00:11:56.875 --> 00:12:01.813
  • And sometimes I just sit atmy piano. Man, I just start
  • 00:12:01.946 --> 00:12:04.749
  • singing, As the Deer, orsinging, you know, 'Tis so
  • 00:12:04.883 --> 00:12:08.486
  • Sweet to Trust in Jesus, oryou know. And after all of
  • 00:12:08.620 --> 00:12:13.057
  • the, you know, syncopation,and the different vocal stuff
  • 00:12:13.191 --> 00:12:16.928
  • that I, you know, that wasgifted me to be able to write
  • 00:12:17.061 --> 00:12:19.564
  • and do, which I love all ofthat, then I'll just sit back.
  • 00:12:19.697 --> 00:12:24.002
  • And I think about my Paw-Pawwho took out his three
  • 00:12:24.135 --> 00:12:26.871
  • and a half string guitar.(Chuckling)
  • 00:12:27.005 --> 00:12:29.707
  • DANIEL- Three anda half strings.
  • 00:12:29.841 --> 00:12:31.109
  • EDDIE- Yeah, 'cause he, he's,you know, he died at 100 years
  • 00:12:31.242 --> 00:12:32.577
  • old. He was just an amazingdemonstration of passion at
  • 00:12:32.710 --> 00:12:38.049
  • age 90 and 95. And he'd be thefirst to come in the House of
  • 00:12:38.183 --> 00:12:41.986
  • God and shout, and worship,and go forth. And then when
  • 00:12:42.120 --> 00:12:45.256
  • I'd go to Paw-Paw's house,he'll pluck his guitar and
  • 00:12:45.390 --> 00:12:47.592
  • he'll sing these songs out ofkey. But he would weep with
  • 00:12:47.725 --> 00:12:51.095
  • it. You know, he'd just bebroken with it. And, and when
  • 00:12:51.229 --> 00:12:54.365
  • I think of, when I think ofworship and true passion for
  • 00:12:54.499 --> 00:12:58.002
  • the Lord, I think of that. So,for me, it's my piano. I'll
  • 00:12:58.136 --> 00:13:01.973
  • sit down and I'll just sing.And I'll have my tape around
  • 00:13:02.106 --> 00:13:04.142
  • me. Or I'll go to a worshipservice. And you know, all the
  • 00:13:04.275 --> 00:13:07.645
  • dancing and all that, it'scool. And then I'll just sit
  • 00:13:07.779 --> 00:13:10.248
  • before Him, and just beginto love on Him, you know.
  • 00:13:10.381 --> 00:13:14.986
  • DANIEL- That's so beautiful,man. And I think that comes
  • 00:13:15.119 --> 00:13:17.255
  • out when, when I hear youleading worship. I can tell
  • 00:13:17.388 --> 00:13:20.725
  • that this is coming from adeep place. There's a historythere, you know.
  • 00:13:20.859 --> 00:13:25.697
  • EDDIE- Yes, sir.
  • 00:13:25.830 --> 00:13:27.031
  • DANIEL- One of the thingsthat I think is a lesser known
  • 00:13:27.165 --> 00:13:28.399
  • fact about you is that, thatyour ministry's not just in
  • 00:13:28.533 --> 00:13:31.536
  • music. You've actually, yourministry's amazing. When, when Ihear what you're doing
  • 00:13:31.669 --> 00:13:35.540
  • EDDIE- I appreciate that.
  • 00:13:35.673 --> 00:13:37.175
  • DANIEL- and I see the youngpeople that you work with, and
  • 00:13:37.308 --> 00:13:38.509
  • I hear their stories, it'sjust, it's overwhelming to me.
  • 00:13:38.643 --> 00:13:40.511
  • It's one of the reasons Ilove you so much. Just take a
  • 00:13:40.645 --> 00:13:42.547
  • minute and share with the peoplewhat, what you've been doingthese last few years.
  • 00:13:42.680 --> 00:13:46.851
  • EDDIE- So, I, I was a worshipleader at Calvary Assembly in
  • 00:13:46.985 --> 00:13:50.288
  • Decatur, Alabama. And thenfrom there I went into
  • 00:13:50.421 --> 00:13:52.290
  • full-time traveling ministry.In doing so, in the first
  • 00:13:52.423 --> 00:13:55.260
  • year, as a young man, wasMuslim, gave his life to
  • 00:13:55.393 --> 00:13:58.963
  • Jesus. And he came into astudio session with me in
  • 00:13:59.097 --> 00:14:02.467
  • Nashville. To make a longstory short, he got kicked out
  • 00:14:02.600 --> 00:14:05.203
  • of his home because he wasMuslim and become a Christian.
  • 00:14:05.336 --> 00:14:08.539
  • And so, I moved him to Alabamawhere I was living at the
  • 00:14:08.673 --> 00:14:11.376
  • time, with me. And I come homeone day, and he's got a couple
  • 00:14:11.509 --> 00:14:14.545
  • of guys in my living roomfloor getting saved and
  • 00:14:14.679 --> 00:14:17.148
  • delivered from drugs. And helooks up at me and says, They
  • 00:14:17.282 --> 00:14:20.151
  • can't go back to where theycome from. Can they stay here?
  • 00:14:20.285 --> 00:14:22.553
  • They can stay in my room, dowhatever. So, I consented to
  • 00:14:22.687 --> 00:14:25.290
  • that. And two turned intofour, four turned into eight.
  • 00:14:25.423 --> 00:14:28.226
  • And within a year and a half,I had about 16 guys living in
  • 00:14:28.359 --> 00:14:31.329
  • my home, with bunk beds, youknow, having these Bible
  • 00:14:31.462 --> 00:14:36.034
  • studies and spiritualencounters. And I started
  • 00:14:36.167 --> 00:14:40.104
  • taking them with me, takingthem with me across the
  • 00:14:40.238 --> 00:14:42.440
  • nation. And I'll never forget,I was in Beaumont, Texas, and
  • 00:14:42.573 --> 00:14:45.777
  • one was testifying. And thealtars were being fueled as
  • 00:14:45.910 --> 00:14:49.580
  • he's sharing his story. And Ibegan to see this is more than
  • 00:14:49.714 --> 00:14:52.450
  • just me just trying to help afew guys out. God is breathing
  • 00:14:52.583 --> 00:14:56.654
  • on this. There's somethinghappening. And so, for about
  • 00:14:56.788 --> 00:14:59.724
  • 18 years, we've been goingacross the nation rescuing
  • 00:14:59.857 --> 00:15:02.961
  • young people out of addiction,out of the streets. And I have
  • 00:15:03.094 --> 00:15:06.497
  • a program that's called,Dreamlife, that does that. And
  • 00:15:06.631 --> 00:15:09.801
  • much of my platform ministry,my, I have dancers, singers,
  • 00:15:09.934 --> 00:15:15.540
  • rappers, musicians, and a lotof them come from those broken
  • 00:15:15.673 --> 00:15:18.743
  • places. So, I've got youngpeople right now who live with
  • 00:15:18.876 --> 00:15:22.046
  • me. I've got a place inTennessee, ten acres of land,
  • 00:15:22.180 --> 00:15:25.483
  • 40 kids that live there fulltime; many of them who have
  • 00:15:25.616 --> 00:15:28.453
  • come from crazy, brokenplaces. I mean, gangs, drugs,
  • 00:15:28.586 --> 00:15:33.424
  • prostitution, I mean. And theLord is invading their lives
  • 00:15:33.558 --> 00:15:38.162
  • with the glorious Gospel ofJesus. And if you ever see us
  • 00:15:38.296 --> 00:15:42.700
  • in ministry, you'll seethat this is a platform of
  • 00:15:42.834 --> 00:15:45.536
  • miracles. That's what I'm,that's what [INAUDIBLE]
  • 00:15:45.670 --> 00:15:47.438
  • DANIEL- And youlive there with them.
  • 00:15:47.572 --> 00:15:49.374
  • EDDIE- Oh yeah.
  • 00:15:49.507 --> 00:15:50.742
  • DANIEL- It's not just likeit's this thing you support in
  • 00:15:50.875 --> 00:15:52.076
  • another country. But you'reliving in the midst of them
  • 00:15:52.210 --> 00:15:53.811
  • EDDIE- Yeah, yes, sir.
  • 00:15:53.945 --> 00:15:55.413
  • DANIEL- and working with themevery day. And when people see
  • 00:15:55.546 --> 00:15:56.881
  • you, you know, they come andhear you leading worship and
  • 00:15:57.015 --> 00:15:59.584
  • they see your team, a lot ofthose people that are singing
  • 00:15:59.717 --> 00:16:01.986
  • with you, dancing, musicians,they are actually the ones
  • 00:16:02.120 --> 00:16:04.655
  • that you've been able torescue off the streets.
  • 00:16:04.789 --> 00:16:07.392
  • EDDIE- Absolutely.
  • 00:16:07.525 --> 00:16:08.826
  • DANIEL- And God is doingan amazing in their life.
  • 00:16:08.960 --> 00:16:10.294
  • EDDIE- Yeah, we live incommunity there, and we have,
  • 00:16:10.428 --> 00:16:11.829
  • you know, three differentfacilities that are on this
  • 00:16:11.963 --> 00:16:14.899
  • ten acres of land; one for theguys, one for the girls, and
  • 00:16:15.033 --> 00:16:17.802
  • then I stay there. And, andI'm telling you, it's, it's
  • 00:16:17.935 --> 00:16:22.273
  • amazing. And so, what'scoming, when people come to us
  • 00:16:22.407 --> 00:16:26.144
  • and they're really sensingwhat's coming from our
  • 00:16:26.277 --> 00:16:28.479
  • ministry, it's from peoplewho've been shattered, have
  • 00:16:28.613 --> 00:16:31.716
  • been broken, who, when we talkabout freedom, when we talk
  • 00:16:31.849 --> 00:16:34.485
  • about breakthrough, we talkabout those things, it's
  • 00:16:34.619 --> 00:16:36.788
  • written and sang from aplace of people literally
  • 00:16:36.921 --> 00:16:40.491
  • experiencing that. Some of ourkids would be dead today if ithad not been for this.
  • 00:16:40.625 --> 00:16:45.029
  • DANIEL- Wow. So amazing. AndI'm gonna have you do one of

  • 00:24:04.602 --> 00:24:09.907
  • gifting, and see it become acorporation and all that. I
  • 00:24:10.040 --> 00:24:13.711
