We are Joseph & Lindi Griffith,
and we are worship pastors.
“ “The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, Because He anointed Me to preach the gospel to the poor. He has sent Me to proclaim release to the captives, And recovery of sight to the blind, To set free those who are oppressed, To proclaim the favorable year of the Lord.” “
Luke 4:18-19 is our favorite verse because it reminds us what our ultimate mission and purpose is in life.
Who Are We?
We are both originally from Shreveport, Louisiana. Lindi came on staff and began leading the adult worship team in December 2007. In February 2014, she married Joseph, and, together, they pastor the worship department at Christian Center Shreveport.
We lead the worship department at Christian Center Shreveport, facilitating musical, personal and spiritual growth among team members and cultivating a team built on community. Lindi also teaches the Songwriting and Prophetic Worship class at the Crowns of Life Training School.
Lindi loves worship and experiencing the Lord through music. She has been actively involved with the worship team at Christian Center Shreveport since the age of 11 and spent several years leading the children’s worship team as well as participating on the youth and adult teams. Joseph has a heart for evangelism and discipleship. He has been a part of many outreach opportunities in the city and loves being able to use his powerful testimony to lead others to Christ.
We are passionate about seeing others grow in their calling and doing whatever we can to encourage growth. We love being a part of others’ coming to the knowledge of Christ and helping them walk out what the Lord has destined for them. We love to travel. We love going to new places and experiencing different cultures. We both have a passion for Israel and enjoy any opportunity to spend time there.
Lindi feels called to write music and create songs that help lead the body of Christ into the presence of God. She also feels called to help others grow in their own songwriting gift and learn how to worship prophetically. We both have a heart to connect with other ministries in the region and to see the whole body of Christ experience God through real and radical worship. Our desire is to see lives changed during an encounter with the living God through written and spontaneous songs.
Why Christian Center?
We love the people and mission of Christian Center Shreveport. We function as a family and consider it a privilege to be on staff, working with those who have a similar heart and a desire to see His kingdom expand on earth.
Our vision for Christian Center Shreveport as a whole is for it to change the culture around us. We want to see the church expand even farther beyond its walls and reach deeper into the community where we live. We want it to be a greater influence in the lives of those in our city and around the world who seek a relationship with Jesus, pointing them to Him and using the gifts we as a church have been given to lead them to Christ.
The kingdom of God and the body of Christ should be seen as a unified body that operates in love, displays the heart of the Father for the world to see and lays down its own desires for the sake of the advancement of His kingdom.
We want people to know that at Christian Center Shreveport we have a passion to seek the Father’s heart, train people to hear His voice, activate believers in their calling, nurture them as they grow and disperse them to do the work of the kingdom.
