Scandal and Tragedy Rocked His Church But Didn’t Destroy It

Posted: November 6, 2019

Glenn Packiam was enjoying success as a songwriter and a worship leader at an influential megachurch. It all came crashing down when the church was rocked by a very public scandal and then a deadly shooting.

In the months and years that followed, God taught Glenn and his church a lot about brokenness—and the power of bringing Jesus into the middle of the mess.

“There is no situation of brokenness where the grace of God can’t come rushing in and bring something beautiful out of it.”

This episode features an excerpt from a Billy Graham message called “The Bread of Life.”
