Preparation To Lead Praise & Worship (A Guide)

Hello, I thought I should post helpful tips on how a growing worship leader can prepare to lead a praise & worship session for a church service/event.

Part 5  |  What about Target Practice By Dave Yauk In Review… Before you read this visit Part 1 | Part 2 | Part 3 and Part 4.

Reconsidering Why We Sing, Part 2: Total In Scope

Part 2  |  Total in Scope By Dave Yauk See Part 1 for Series Introduction  A (c)anon within a (C)anon…. I heard a Professor in college once say that most Christians are struggling deeply with their faith because they believe in a “canon within a Canon.” He made this statement while teaching the history behind how we received the 66 book Canon of The Bible. What he meant in this statement is that most Christians are like flower pickers...

Reconsidering the Worship Leader, Part 5: Jesus: The Worship Leader of Culture

What is culture anyway? Etymologically, the word culture comes from the Latin verb colere, which refers literally to agriculture, tilling the ground in order to grow things.  “Culture is not only what we grow what we make, both with our hands and with our minds.  It incudes our houses, our barns, our tools, our cities and towns, and our arts and crafts.  It also includes the systems of ideas that we build up:  science, philosophy,...
