We’re still around! (And a giveaway…)

We haven’t been super active online in a few months. And I wanted to let you know why. First, we want to let you know that we’re still around! You can’t get away from us that easily! Second, there is a reason for the break. I (David) took a position at a church as a Lead Pastor as well as Worship. I started just after the latest post before this one. So, I’ve been working hard trying to figure out how to do all...

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...

Going Social

Worship Ministry Catalyst is going social! And no, there are no political implications in that title. (I also realize that we’re a little behind the times in getting this taken care of, but hey, better late than never…) For a while, I’ve been trying to use my twitter account to get to know some of you on twitter. Which is actually working quite well. It’s been amazing to just get to know a little about a few of...

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...

Building Momentum In a Worship Minsitry during the down months of summer

If you’ve been leading worship for long, you’ve undoubtedly been through a summer lull. I’m definitely there right now. People go on vacation with no consideration, it seems, for your needs as a worship leader. It’s almost as if they have their own lives apart from your worship ministry and that they’d rather be on the beach than playing or singing in your team. The nerve! Well, as I’ve been...

Playing with a Metronome/Click – it will change your life.

If you don’t have your band playing with a metronome or click track, you most definitely should. We do, almost every song of every weekend. It was hard at first. I’ll give you that. It took us some getting used to, but once we did – oh the joy! There’s no longer a question of who was rushing what part, you can hear it. It’s kind of natural too. For a lot of our church musicians, playing to a click track...
