    Is the Digital Age Damaging The Church?

    Is the Digital Age Damaging The Church?

    Welcome to The WorshipWorkshop Podcast, where we help you grow a stronger team that leads engaging worship.
    An Interview with Jay Kim
    Back in January, when few of us ever dreamed that COVID-19 would shut down our church buildings, I recorded this conversation pastor and author, Jay Kim, about his book, Analog Church: Why We Need Real People, Places, and Things in the Digital Age.
    In this book, and during this conversation, Jay sheds light on how technology and the pursuit of relevance is damaging the church.
    However, this book and this episode are releasing in March of 2020, when all we have is "digital church" when it comes to gathering for worship.
    Don't think for a moment that this discredits what Jay is saying. I believe our current situation will amplify his message that digital is and will never be enough. Technology is a tool, and in many ways, a powerful tool. But it can't be a substitute for gathering, participating, and communing together.
    Be sure to listen to the end of the interview, because Jay recorded additional thoughts about Analog Church and the times that we're living in.

    How to Use the Fourfold Pattern of Worship in a Modern Church, Part 2

    How to Use the Fourfold Pattern of Worship in a Modern Church, Part 2

    Welcome to the Worship Workshop Podcast where we help you grow a stronger team that leads engaging worship.
    We're continuing our exploration of how to use the ancient fourfold pattern of worship in a modern church setting. If you haven’t listened to Part 1 yet (Episode 16), go back and listen to that first.
    www.WorshipWorkshop.com/17 
    This episode is part two of that conversation with worship leader, teacher, and theologian Rob Still. Even if you are in a modern church setting, don’t dismiss this idea of the fourfold pattern of worship. It’s not just a liturgical thing or just a traditional thing. It can bring a more meaningful journey to your worship services.
    In part 2 of this interview, we talk practically about the second two movements of the fourfold pattern and how to include this model in different settings. About Rob Still Rob is worship leader, songwriter, author, and instructor in Nashville, TN.
    He is also one of the instructors inside of Worship Workshop. You can connect with Rob at RobStill.com

    How to Use the Fourfold Pattern of Worship in a Modern Church, Part 1

    Welcome to the Worship Workshop Podcast where we help you grow a stronger team that leads engaging worship.
    We’re diving into the practical application of something that Dr. Lester Ruth introduced us to in episode 13, which is the ancient fourfold order of worship. Lester gave us some fantastic ideas to implement that order of worship.
    But I wanted to dig even deeper, so I asked worship leader, teacher, and theologian Rob Still to help us apply the fourfold pattern of worship into our modern worship settings. Even if you are in a modern church setting, don’t dismiss this idea of the fourfold pattern of worship. It’s not just a liturgical thing or just a traditional thing. It can bring a more meaningful journey to your worship services.
    In part 1 of this interview, we lay the groundwork for understanding how the fourfold pattern of worship fits, and then talk practically about the first two movements. In part 2, we discuss the second two patterns and talk about how to include this model in different settings.

    Writing Songs for Your Church with Krissy Nordhoff

    Writing Songs for Your Church with Krissy Nordhoff

    Welcome to the WorshipWorkshop Podcast where we help you grow a stronger team that leads engaging worship.
    Today we are talking about songwriting for the church, and we have an amazing guest to teach and inspire us. This season, we have focused on how to engage your congregation—and we’ve hit this theme from a lot different angles and topics.
    Today, we’re continuing that theme, but now centering it around writing original songs that will engage your congregation. So to do that, I got the privilege to do a fantastic interview with a master songwriter who has a heart to create new songs for the church to sing.
    She’s won a Dove Award for song of the year, has written songs sung by a whole list of artists and worship leaders that you know, and she is actively mentoring and building up local church songwriters.
    I know you’re going to enjoy this conversation with Krissy Nordhoff.

    Today, we dig into how we manage our song lists and rotate our songs. I know—it sounds kinda boring. But how you choose and rotate songs could mean the difference between a church that barely engages in worship and a church that sings from the heart each week.
