Leading The Way with Dr. Michael Youssef has announced the addition of Grammy-winning artist Mac Powell to its global ministry team.
An Atlanta native, Powell will be based at Youssef’s The Church of The Apostles as “Artist in Residence” when not on tour with the ministry leader. The announcement comes as The Church of The Apostles celebrates 33 years of fruitful ministry.
“Mac has been blessed by God with great musical talent and a voice like no other,” said Youssef, Founder and President of Leading The Way, in the announcement. “I am thrilled he’s chosen to join our team and am sure God will use him mightily as we minister together around the globe.”
Powell is slated to travel with Youssef to lead worship at Leading The Way LIVE events – including the October 2 gathering at the Moody Center in Northfield, Massachusetts, and a special event in Sydney, Australia, October 31. Leading The Way is Youssef’s media and evangelism outreach, which broadcasts television and radio programs in 26 languages across six continents.
“I’ve seen from afar the great ministry that Dr. Youssef has had around the world,” said Powell in Leading The Way’s announcement. “So to be able to be part of that — I’m really excited.”
Powell has performed in front of millions of people around the world as frontman for Christian rock band Third Day. The group transformed Christian music, selling 10 million albums, earning four Grammy awards, an American Music Award, and 24 Dove Awards. Powell has been inducted into the Georgia Music Hall of Fame.
Along with his new position with the Church of The Apostles and Leading The Way, Powell will continue his career touring and recording contemporary Christian music. In 2018, Powell began the next chapter of his musical journey with the official start of his new band, Mac Powell and the Family Reunion.
