The video depicts Shopé as he heads on the road yet again to fulfill the calling he believes the Lord has placed on him. The imagery is a metaphor of him inching ever closer to his goal of being a role model by using his gifts. The video makes it clear that despite Shopé's passion for the mission of making disciples, he is not willing to sacrifice family on the alter of "ministry." Rather, he understands that a healthy private life, empowers a healthy public life. Ultimately, the video is a stirring piece that challenges viewers to work hard, pursuing their God-given vision, yet without sacrificing that which truly matters.
The Shopé EP releases Tuesday August 26th on Role Model Records and is available for pre-order on iTunes now.
