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...

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 lik...

Many churches have volunteer sound techs who haven’t received a lot of professional training. This leaves the audio quality of our church services sounding a bit less than desirable. What can we do as worship leaders to help train our sound techs, not just in the technical side of sound, but also in the artistic side of sound design?

Your personal health or unhealth will directly affect the health or unhealth of your ministry. That’s why as leaders, it is critical that we strive to be holistically healthy. We should be taking care of ourselves physically, spiritually, emotionally, and mentally so that we can bring the best version of ourselves to those we are called to serve.

If you are drained, empty, tired, or unhealthy, you will not be able to serve others ...

Marriage is hard. Ministry is hard. Put the two together and things can get really tricky! But we all know that if we don’t have healthy marriages, our ministries will be negatively impacted. In fact, many worship leaders have forfeited their ministries because their marriages have failed. How can we balance serving the needs of our church AND the needs of our spouse?

Well, thankfully Paul Baloche is here to help. Paul has success...

Ministry has never been about making music. It’s always been about making disciples. Namely, we make disciples THROUGH music (the songs shepherd our congregation), and through making music TOGETHER (doing life week to week with our team). Music is just the tool we use to make disciples. But practically how does this play out on our teams?    Disciple making can feel like a daunting and mysterious process. Thankfully, on this month...

At age 26, he had a dream to launch a national tour featuring the best and most well-known artists in the Christian Worship space. Three y...

As the founding and senior pastor of one of Canada’s largest and most influential churches, Carey burned out at age 42. Almost a decade later, Carey is not only recovered fr...
