WMC-0154 – Taking a Break With Your Team

Taking A Break With Your Team As I once heard from the great leader and mentor, Bill Hybels: Sundays come around with amazing regularity. Every 7 days there is another Sunday to put together.

As another great leader says, we need time to work on it, not just in it (Andy Stanley). We need some time throughout...

Sing To The Lord A New Song As worship leaders, we like new songs. But, if you haven’t noticed, not everyone feels the same way. But, how do we deal with this tension?

And perhaps the bigger question, is there a bigger spiritual issue at work in the heart of this struggle? Listen in as David and Kevin talk about this very...

WMC-0152 – The New Regular, Once A Month Attender and The Tension It Creates In Worship

The New Regular, Once A Month Attender and The Tension It Creates In Worship I have heard, in at least three separate leadership podcasts that the new regular attender in America is once a month. Two of the podcasts said once a month, another said once every six weeks. Not only does this create problems for the church in too many ways to mention in this post, it creates problems for worship pastors and worship ministries. That’s...

Worship The Creator Instead of Creation (A Thousand Adjustments of .18 Degrees)

Bob Kauflin wrote this post on his Facebook page this week: Post by Bob Kauflin. And in one short phrase, he summed up so much of the tension I feel on a constant basis about worship in the modern age. “In 2015, let’s be less passionate about worship and more passionate about the triune God we’re worshiping.” It’s something Kevin & I have talked about on the podcast. It’s something I’m...
