WMC-0113 – How to handle crisis and how they affect your services

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.

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.

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.
