On April 14 and 15, Walla Walla University hosted a workshop and vespers presented by Mack Brock, previous singer with Elevation Worship. The workshop, a Q&A session, was held in Village Hall beginning at 6 on Thursday evening with 75 students and community members in attendance.
During the workshop, Brock answered audience questions about his music and career. In response to a question about how to keep Christ the focus even in the music industry, Brock said, “Before I go on stage, I always talk with people on the team and pray. I can’t control how people respond to the service, but what I can control is the offering I can bring. I gotta let go and let God do what he can do. Being aware of the presence of Jesus in the room is really the main thing.”
Another audience member asked how he maintains balance and humility in his career. Brock answered, “My wife and other people help me juggle the details because I am bad at public relations stuff. Having kids really keeps me humble because they are not impressed with anything I do.”
The vespers program, presented by Brock and coordinated by Associated Students of WWU Spiritual, featured nine songs, including “Way Maker,” and “Do It Again.” The WWU student band members were Jake Langford, junior theology major, on electric guitar; Maddie Hoffer, sophomore business major on keyboard; EJ McField, senior bioengineering on drums; Jairon Personius, senior aviation on bass guitar.
Hoffer said, “It was really fun and it definitely changed my perspective on how we worship. Brock was really fun and energetic and made the experience much more fun. It was cool to see how he interacted with the band and audience during the performance.”
