Tiffany Hudson Devotional: The Worship Leader John the Baptist
Tiffany Hudson of Elevation Worship uses an unlikely Bible character as an example of her “favorite worship leader.” John the Baptist isn’t necessarily remembered for his lyrical skills or musical abilities, but his heart is positioned in a posture of worship like few others written about in scripture. Tiffany’s devotional today teaches us how to posture ourselves in the same way as this great worship leader did when he fulfilled prophesy and prepared a way for the savior to come.
- John the Baptist recognized when the Spirit of God walked into the room.
- John prepared the way for Jesus.
- John was a prophet who always pointed back to Jesus.
- John preached a message of repentance. Repentance must be a part of our daily walk as Believers.
Matthew 3:1-3 In those days John the Baptist came, preaching in the wilderness of Judea 2 and saying, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven has come near.” 3 This is he who was spoken of through the prophet Isaiah:
“A voice of one calling in the wilderness,
‘Prepare the way for the Lord,
make straight paths for him.’”[a]

Who is Tiffany Hudson?
Tiffany Hudson grew up in the church as a Pastor’s kid, always knowing she wanted to be in ministry. “I felt God draw my heart to Him and I began to fall in love with His presence,” Tiffany shares. “I didn’t know what it would look like or how God would use me, I just knew I was meant to serve His church.” It was also at her parent's church where she started honing in on her worship-leading skills, learning to play multiple instruments and write songs.
Today, Tiffany is an award-winning songwriter (“Graves Into Gardens,” “Wait On You,” “Never Lost,” among others), a member of the GRAMMY Award-winning group Elevation Worship, and a worship leader at Elevation Church.
She has also been honored to be part of the numerous accolades Elevation Worship has received: RIAA Gold® certification status for their song “Graves Into Gardens,” a GRAMMY Award® in 2022 for their collaborative album with Maverick City Music Old Church Basement, two Billboard Music Awards® (in 2021 as Top Christian Artist and Top Christian Song “Graves Into Gardens”). Along with two GMA Dove Awards® in 2021 (Top Worship Recorded Song, “Graves Into Gardens;” Top Worship Album, Old Church Basement), she has also received additional GMA Dove Award nominations with the group.
Tiffany released her solo debut album, Hidden Here, on Elevation Worship Records which features a variety of styles that have individual worship focus as opposed to the corporate worship style Elevation Worship delivers.
She shares, “After a season of what felt like a creative drought, I began to sit down at my piano and felt the Lord begin to download songs and themes that felt very important to Him.”
