    The Theology of Creativity and the Creative Process w/ Andrew Peterson

    The Theology of Creativity and the Creative Process w/ Andrew Peterson

    We were created to create! We reflect our Creator’s image and imagination by creating and being creative. God allows us to influence His story in the world through what we “output” via our creativity.  Art has an impact! 
    As musicians, singers, songwriters, set designers, and “creatives”, it’s vital that we have a Biblical understanding of art and its role within the world and the Church!  Andrew Peterson (one of the most creative people I have met) joins us to discuss creativity, and how we can be better creatives as we serve the Church and the World through God-honoring art!

    Jeremy Riddle: Pursuing God’s Presence Vs. Performing Songs During Worship

    Jeremy Riddle: Pursuing God’s Presence Vs. Performing Songs During Worship

    Many of our worship sets have become so pre-planned that worship has become an act of simply executing the songs one after another.  How do we move deeper into worship and patiently pursue the Holy Spirit's leading during a set? How do we move past performance to actually pursuing God's presence?  And practically, how do we do that when we only have 20 minutes on a Sunday morning, and we're using backing tracks? Jeremy Riddle is back on the podcast to answer all of these questions and more! This is one of my favorite episodes! Check it out and be encouraged! Let's get back to the heart of worship!

    What Is Corporate Worship w/ Matt Merker

    What Is Corporate Worship w/ Matt Merker

    Every week, worship leaders gather in a room filled with people to do something.  What is it?  Why do we gather?  What is corporate worship supposed to look like?  What is it supposed to accomplish?  Biblically speaking, what should we do while gathered? Which elements should we include in our services? In what order?  And what long term outcomes are we trying to accomplish through our times of corporate worship?  In this month’s episode, I talk with Matt Merker about his new book called “Corporate Worship“.   Enjoy and please share with a friend!

    How To Be A Better Leader w/ Chris Vacher

    Most of us were put in charge of our ministries because we were good at music. Now we have to figure out how to be leaders!  What is leadership at its essence? What does a good leader do? What are some common mistakes new leaders make? We talk about all of that and more in this month’s episode!  Enjoy! And remember, being a worship leader is more about leadership than musicianship!

    Time Management Tips for Busy Worship Leaders

    Time Management Tips for Busy Worship Leaders

    You have big goals. You have big dreams. You want to accomplish a lot with your life. But you’re busy. There’s not enough time to do all you want to do!  Or is there?  In this episode, I am going to share with you the things I’ve learned by managing an extremely busy schedule and a lot of responsibilities over the last three years.  You’ll learn how to view time, how to determine your desired destiny, how to design your days, and how to destroy your distractions.  Time management + task management.
    You might not have all the time you want, but you can wisely utilize the time you have.  The more efficiently you use your time, the more you can do for the Lord.  May God give you the wisdom to accomplish all that He has called you to do!

    How The Old Testament Informs New Testament Worship w/ Zach Neese

    How The Old Testament Informs New Testament Worship w/ Zach Neese

    What do tabernacles, sacrifices, incense, and priests have to do with worship? Well, EVERYTHING! The worship practices of the Old Testament may seem like strange, confusing, and barbaric ways to worship, but when understood correctly we gain a deeper understanding of what God wants from us as worship leaders. Instead of looking to social media profiles, YouTube videos, and Mega-churches to learn what our ministries should look like, Zach Neese (author and worship pastor) is calling us back to seek God’s vision for worship as found in the Scriptures (both in the Old and New Testament). This is a fascinating, insightful, and powerful conversation, so be ready to have your mind and heart expanded!
    Check out Zach’s new course and his book (below), and also sign-up for the Worship Leader Mentorship before Dec 31st to get your early-bird discount.

Intuitive

Alex asks the questions that I think of, as his interview goes on with his guest, every time. Very thought provoking.

A blessing

Thank you for this podcast. It has been a great blessing for my life and ministry. It seems that many time as worship leaders we’re kind of just flung into the ministry without the training and hope we figure it out along the way. This podcast is that training we need and encouragement we need! Not only that but it’s definitely empowering! Thank you and God bless!!

Speaking our thoughts!

Thank you for speaking our thoughts in the music ministry! It’s nice to hear our struggles verbalized along with encouragement on how to overcome! Carry on!!
