    The Pros and Cons of Backing Tracks in Worship

    The Pros and Cons of Backing Tracks in Worship

    Backing tracks have been a blessing to many worship ministries. But tracks can turn into a curse if we implement them without pastoral wisdom and thoughtfulness. What are some of the ways that backing tracks can inadvertently harm our worship ministries? What are some of the benefits tracks provide? How can we strike a healthy balance? This month I’ll tell you all the pros and cons of using backing tracks in worship and guide you regarding whether or not you should be using them at your church.

    Deepening Your Relationship with God Through Daily Devotions w/ Craig Denison

    Deepening Your Relationship with God Through Daily Devotions w/ Craig Denison

    Worship leaders are called to be worshippers first, leaders second. But sadly many of us have it backward. We perform the duty of being a worship leader, without learning to first be a worshipper.  Honestly, how is your personal devotional life with the Lord? How are your private times of worship? Do you have a hard time communing with God when it’s just you and Him? Are you leading from empty?
    We need to cultivate rich, private devotional lives in order to thrive in our public calling. “Apart from Jesus we can do nothing, but by abiding in Him we will bear much fruit.”  In this month’s episode, I talk with Craig Denison from First15 about how we can learn to have richer, more vibrant times of personal worship.  Enjoy, and share with someone who needs to hear this!

    How To Train and Develop New Worship Leaders w/ Andrew Wooddell

    How To Train and Develop New Worship Leaders w/ Andrew Wooddell

    So many worship leaders are stuck leading worship every single Sunday. They have no one to back them up or fill in for them. This means they never get a break, which leads to exhaustion and burnout. Why do so many worship leaders have such a hard time raising up others to take our place? What should we be looking for in potential new leaders, and how do we help them grow to the level we need them to actually be capable of leading in our services?  Andrew Wooddell has been training young worship leaders for the last fourteen years and has a ton of wisdom for us on how we can find, develop, and deploy new worship leaders into our churches. Enjoy the episode!

    How To Improve Your Vocals (and Vocalists) in Worship w/ Charmaine Brown

    How To Improve Your Vocals (and Vocalists) in Worship w/ Charmaine Brown

    Singing is a huge part of what we do as worship leaders. Yet most of us never received any formal training on how to properly use our voice. This leads to a lack of range, power, control, and endurance; none of which are good when leading others in song!  Thankfully all of these problems can be corrected by some simple training.

    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!

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!!
