Helping Your Band Nail Your Worship Setlist - Jason Houtsma - Worship Artistry
What do guitars, mountain bikes and your worship team all have in common? Jason Houtsma speaks to it in today's episode.
Jason Houtsma runs a platform called Worship Artistry where the user experiences a private music teacher environment to learn the latest worship songs on drums, guitar, keys, and vocals. Your whole team can get access and they're adding to their catalogue daily. This is an incredible resource for worship teams to step up their musicianship and increase their excellence. Worship Artistry not only teaches you how to play the part but also how to get creative with making the sound your own!
You can use the link below to sign up for a 21 day free trial to check it out, and as Jason recommends, just try to learn one song, and you'll be hooked.
Worship Leader's Guide to Speaking and Praying Between Songs
In this episode, Zac Hicks gives us tools to help us plan and improve the accuracy and effectiveness of what we say or pray between songs as worship leaders.
Zac dives into John 14:26-27 as well as John 16:13-14 to direct us to what Jesus says about the Holy Spirit and how that context might help us understand planning vs. spontaneous leadership during our worship services.

Worship Tech Makeover | Hilton Head Presbyterian
In this episode, we recapped Adam's trip to Hilton Head Presbyterian Church where he visited Josh Miles who is an Accelerator Pro student in Worship Ministry School. Accelerator Pro members get 4 onsite days with a Churchfront team member to optimize their systems, train their volunteer teams, and tweak systems that need attention to get the results of the Worship Ministry School student.
If you're interested in having one of our team members come to your church, you can hop on a free Strategy Session by filling out a form at worshipministryschool.com and hop on a call with one of our coaches to help you drill down into what the current problems are in your ministry, assess your goals and what the best course of action would be to get you to achieve those goals. Many of our students actually don't need a ton of new gear, sometimes an adapter here and there, or a new piece of software to streamline some systems, but most ministries don't need tens of thousands of dollars of new gear but rather a better understanding and education on how to use the current capable gear they already have on hand.
If you want to see some visuals of Adam's experience, you can checkout the youtube video where Adam recaps his time with Josh.
I hope you enjoy Adam's recap of his Worship Tech Makeover at Hilton Head Presbyterian Church.

The best worship training podcast out there...
Jake and Luke have created what is in my opinion the best worship leader training podcast out there. I am a worship leader and I can’t even begin to describe how much of a blessing this podcast has been to me over the past couple years. There are hundreds of episodes filled with fantastic content, both practical and spiritual, that is guaranteed to help any worship leader or volunteer grow and excel in the worship ministry context they serve in. I’ve learned so much from these podcasts and my ministry has benefited greatly as a result. Love these guys.
To say this podcast has helped me in my worship ministry is an understatement! Jake always points people to GOSPEL CENTERED worship. Wether you are new to leading worship, or you are a veteran this is an amazing podcast with practical knowledge to help you on your journey! Check out the podcast about TRANSITIONS! Way good!
