Worship Ministry Catalyst Podcast – Episode 0112 – Public Speaking

Music comes natural to a lot of us, however public speaking can be a very different thing. It’s one thing to get up and sing a song, sit at the piano or strum a guitar, but for some of us speaking can be a challenge. For some, it’s saying too much, for others it’s not saying enough. Listen as David & Kevin speak about public speaking! TWITTER: @wmcatalyst FACEBOOK: http://www.facebook.com/worshipministrycatalyst...

Worship Ministry Catalyst Podcast – Episode 0111 – Preparing your team for worship not just the performance

In this episode of the Worship Ministry Catalyst podcast, David and Kevin talk about worship. Yes, we’re actually talking about worship on a worship podcast, surprising – we know. However, it’s a very important aspect of Worship Ministry. Often, we spend a lot of time preparing people for the performance of worship, and then spend little-if any-time preparing people to worship. That’s exactly what we talk...

Worship Prescriptions

What are the few things we are prescribed when it comes to worship? I know there are a lot of things we think we are supposed to do, but most of them aren’t actual prescriptions.

Most of what we are wrapped up in, are things that aren’t prescribed. And...

Worship Leader, What’s Driving You?

Today, through that amazing little 140 character powerhouse we refer to as Twitter, I came in contact with this article. I’ve been a fan of Perry Noble and what they’re doing down there at New Spring for quite some time. And the fact that I grew up with that kind of preaching, just makes me reel right at home with Perry! But, it’s worth mentioning, and reiterating here. What is it that’s driving you in your...
