Required Reading: The Worship Pastor by Zac Hicks

I haven’t recommended a lot of books on WMC over the 10 years we have been doing this little thing. There have been some like Paul Baloche’s God Songs, that I would definitely still recommend.  I’m sure there have been a few others, but not many. There are reasons, mainly because I’m a slow reader and I don’t like to recommend something I wouldn’t stand behind.  Well, I want you to know, I would...

Soak: Giving People Time To “Take It All In”

A while ago we were privileged to be able to interview Jon Egan on the podcast and he shared with us a very important concept. And it’s one that I think we need should spend more time thinking about as worship leaders. Let me explain. We live on a farm. During the summer it can get to be pretty dirty around here. The first summer we lived in this house they were doing some logging. The dirt on the logging road was a real fine...

WMC Podcast, #196: Paul Baloche, Part 1 – Worship Leading

Paul Baloche Over the 10 years of this podcast we have often spoken of our admiration for Paul Baloche.

You would be hard pressed to find a worship songwriter who has had more of an impact on modern worship than this guy. In part 1 of our 2 part interview with Paul, we talk about worship leading and Paul shares with us some very...

WMC Podcast, Episode #195: What do you do when your church wants to meet a justice need, but the neighborhood doesn’t support you?

What do you do when your church wants to meet a justice need, but the neighborhood doesn’t support you? One of the harshest criticisms against the church has been that we don’t do enough to take care of the hurting and the poor. I’ve heard it many times. I’ve probably even said it many times. But, what happens when your church wants to step into that gap and help meet a justice need, but you’re met with...

WMC Podcast, Episode #0185: Sara Joseph, Christian Artist Resource

Sara Joseph, Christian Artist Resource   So many of us have the desire to be discovered and noted for our work as Christians artists. It’s something I’ve desired and wanted as well. But, the question we need to wrestle with is why are we doing what we do? Is it for our own attention or is it for God’s glory? Are we willing to work at this calling in anonymity, even if we never get “discovered”?...
