Five Thankful Texts Every Worship Leader Can Send at Thanksgiving
Here are five thankful texts every worship leader can send. I encourage you to copy these, make them your own and send them out today.
How To Teach A New Song To Your Church
Just in the same way that Thanksgiving dinner involves a scheduled time set-up and sequence, teaching new songs to the church involves those same three steps. These three steps are critical in helping the church digest something new that their bodies are not yet used to as part of their worship diet.
Worship Leaders Are Butlers With Guest, Randy Rothwell
We live in a day and age where creatives in the church volley to have platforms as a means to express themselves and build their kingdoms. In efforts to put our imprint on things we usurp the Almighty and worship the created, instead of the creator. Our hearts our idol-making factories that consistently need to be condemned if Christ is to have His rightful place in our lives and in His church.
Who Are You Holding the Door Open For?
Being a doorkeeper requires patience and the ability to see past one’s present condition and to the potential inside. Some doorkeepers don’t see the full fruit of their labor, but rather are a link in the chain of opportunities that grow men and women into their calling.
How To Choose Songs For Congregational Worship
Worship leaders must develop their own filters to determine and discern what music is appropriate for their worship diet and worship culture at their church. Choosing songs merely based on preference alone, what’s “hot” on the radio or what stimulated a meaningful worship experience in your car aren’t necessarily great metrics for determining what truth to put into the mouths of worshippers on the weekend.
How To Recruit Volunteers to Your Worship Team
I’ve never met a worship leader who doesn’t desire a deep bench of skilled musicians and vocalists to serve on their team. Building any type of ministry takes a lot of hard work and is not for the faint of heart. Over the past 20 years I’ve had the great privilege of being involved with four church plants. Having built worship ministries from scratch, I learned many of these principles through much trial and error.
Catching Up With Dr. Ron Kenoly
Over thirty years ago there was a significant shift in praise and worship music. In 1991, Integrity Music was a fledgling five year old company in the early stages of revolutionizing the praise and worship genre by capturing live worship experiences and marketing them through their innovate direct-to-customer tape subscription service. They had remarkable success early on with worship leaders Kent Henry, Marty Nystrom and Don Moen but no one could have predicted the monumental impact a new West Coast worship leader named Ron Kenoly was going to have on their label and on the genre as a whole.
25 Short Verses From The Psalms Every Worship Leader Can Memorize
What we say to lead others in worship reveals the source of our authority. We’re either leading from the authority of Scripture or the authority of self and only one source is truly effective.
How To Lead A Creative Team Brainstorm
One of my favorite things to do with creatives is brainstorm. Creative brainstorms are a great way to uncover fresh ideas, promote team ownership and give your broader team(s) a voice into service design.
