With Dr. Steve Greene

Sean Feucht

Sean Feucht is a husband, father, missionary, musician, speaker, author and founder of a grassroots global worship, prayer and missions organization; Burn 24/7. His lifelong dream is to witness a generation of burning hearts arise across the nations of the world with renewed faith, vision and sacrificial pursuit after the Presence of God. He travels to 20-30 nations per year planting furnaces of worship and prayer, training, mobilizing, leading worship and speaking.

Sean has produced, recorded and released 20 music albums, co-authored 5 books, numerous teaching resources and has ignited several global missional initiatives. Dr. Steve Greene recently interviewed Sean for the Greenelines podcast.

Dr. Steve Greene: At the end of 2018, we have an opportunity to speak with someone who's had a great year and has made a lot of difference this year. I know he's been on the cover of Charisma magazine because I had a little bit to do with that. I just love this man. He loves music and I know you do too. His name is Sean Feucht. We’re just honored to speak with you and to talk about your album that’s now been released. You call it Wild. That's a nice Christian title. What kind of music do you have on the album?

Sean Feucht: It’s a live album, a worship album, captured at our church, Bethel Church, in Redding, California and at our school of ministry. It’s very fun. It's very joyful, spontaneous, it percussive. It kind of feels like you’re there; it feels like an experience. It’s a little less like a radio album and more like you're actually there.

The Cover of Charisma

Dr. Steve Greene: Sean, we got to know you. We did a cover for Christmas in March of 17, actually, it wasn't 18. It was called “Worshiper to the Nations, Unifying Communities Across the Globe with Worship, Prayer and Supernatural Gatherings.” Sounds like a Bethel guy. But at the same time, you're very unique in how you lead worship. I want to read a quote and have you comment on it because this quote really moved me the very first time I heard you. You said, “We just believe songs and art can guide you to places where preaching will never go. This is one of the reasons why we get invited to the war zone; we get invited into the front lines of battle to sing our songs and release our worship. So tell me, where have you been? What kind of war zones have you seen?

Sean Feucht: I don't know if we have enough time to mention them all, but have been to some very difficult places. Four out of the five most closed countries in the world in the last several years. They all have their unique stories how the Lord got us in to those countries. When I was about 12 years old, I got back from my first missions trip; my parents were both full-time medical missionaries, and I prayed to the Lord and made a list I prayed of the top five most difficult countries in the world, the most closed countries in the world to the gospel, according to Voice of the Martyrs. I just made a decision is commitment for the Lord that I was going to go into those countries and worship. For me, it had been part of a lifelong dream and they all have unique stories on how the Lord opened doors for us to go in. Places like North Korea and Afghanistan and Iraq and Iran and Saudi Arabia and places like that. If you really do have to have divine favor to open doors, and the Lord has just made such a way for us in the last season.

 

What Sean Has Learned Over the Years

Dr. Steve Greene: What did the Lord teach you in the early experiences of these war zones? What did you learn as your music started going forth in these war lines?

Sean Feucht: You grow up reading the stories of Josephat in the Bible who called the worshippers ahead of the army. You read the stories about Gideon, you heart the stories about David as he played before Saul. But it's another thing to really experience it firsthand and to realize that worship is still displacing armies and it's still bringing peace in hostile situations. And it's still releasing deliverance and salvation and justice. For me, it's just kind of made worship and just this whole journey come alive to where I think sometimes we get so used to saying words on a screen and going through religious motions, and it's three fast and three slow before we hear a preacher speak. But there's so much more in worship that the Lord wants to show us. We’ve seen firsthand how it really does work and how God comes and does miraculous things as He responds to the praises of his people.

 

Bring the War Back Home

Dr. Steve Greene: So that's a great question. What did you bring back from the war zone into the chapel into the worship sanctuary? How did it affect you and your worship and that of your team?

Sean Feucht: Well, you know, I feel like for me we spend probably half of the year being really intentional to go to third-world nations or, or nations that are in war zones or in risky areas. I feel like it actually gives us credibility to carry an authority into the first world. We can come with these testimonies of what God is doing in these remote parts of the world and what's happening in the underground church. It's just an encouragement to everybody else that may be bummed out about the state of the world because they've been watching the news or they hear the latest, the worst news and the worst stuff. We are able to come back and say, man, we went to these places we worshiped and God showed up and this is what happened. It really has changed the way that our community worships and how we approach God.

The ‘War’ in Iraq

Sean Fecucht: You know, I just got back from being in Iraq. A big part of the storyline of this album was I wanted to bring 15 people from Bethel music with me to the war zone and they came and we shot our music videos for this record. We actually shot them in a war zone. One of them was shot in a former ISIS compound that we had to get cleared before able to set up our whole production and worship there. So they kind of got a first-hand encounter and it's been really cool to see what the Lord's done in awakening their heart with hunger for the nation.
