Embodying Grace

  I call upon you, for you will answer me, O God; Wondrously show your steadfast love, O Savior of those who seek refuge from their adversaries at your right hand. As for me, I shall behold your face in righteousness; when I awake, I shall be satisfied with your likeness. Psalm 17:6a, 7 & 15 (ESV) When it comes to personal evangelism, feelings of obligation, guilt, and duty have never been effective motivators for me. On the...

Why building volunteers is so important

Why building volunteers is so important

One of my biggest beliefs for Worship Ministry in the local church is that we build up the members of our churches to do the work of the ministry. I truly believe that we are called, as members of the body of Christ to be doing the work were commissioned to do by Jesus. The great commission wasn’t directed at professional ministers. Jesus didn’t even pick trained ministers to do the work of building his Kingdom on the...

Get the Evangelism Monkey off the back of Worship

Get the Evangelism Monkey off the back of Worship

He’s a cute little guy. But he sure can cause a lot of problems. Don’t get me wrong. Evangelism is what we’re all about. YES, we want to be relevant. I agree completely! But….(and you knew it was coming)…..evangelism cannot ride on the back of worship. We have to stop trying to make worship – evangelism. Worship is worship, evangelism is evangelism. I agree that a worshiping church is attractive to...

Why Sermons? If Jesus came today would he preach?

I know that I’m walking a tight-rope with this post, but it’s something I’ve been doing a lot of thinking about (as with worship services in general). (This post is only meant to invoke thought, not bash sermons.) I know the history. I know that Jesus taught. I know that Peter and Paul and others preached. But why sermons? Why the passive listening? Do we actually learn from sermons anymore? Are that many...

Artist Evangelism

Who is reaching out to artists? What, if anything, are we supposed to be doing in our worship ministries to be reaching out the artists in our communities? In ages past, churches were hubs for the arts. The most creative music, the most creative artwork was done in and/or for the church. Now, for the most part, the arts are completely separated from the church. Art is taught in schools, and displayed in galleries. Yet, the church...
