Worship Songs For Mother's Day

Posted on April 6, 2016

Mother’s Day is not far away, and as a worship leader, you have a tremendous opportunity to plan a time of worship that honors and embraces the mothers among you, even as you honor and worship God together in corportate worship. However, if planning worship for Mother’s Day means that you are looking for that perfect song that has a specific reference to mothers, you are going to find the options somewhat thin. Getting that specific, probably the best song you will find is A Mother’s Prayer, by Keith and Kristyn Getty. Other worship songs specifically relating to mothers may take you deep into the hymn book. Like A Mother With Her Children is a great example, if your worship style is more traditional ... more

Leading Publicly From The Secret Place

Featuring Watershed Music Group Posted on March 30, 2016

If one word could describe leading congregational worship in my 20s that would be it. “Leading worship and worshipping are two separate things,” I told myself. “I’m not here to worship but to take care of logistics so that others can worship.” It wore me out. It felt noble. It was rubbish. Years later an older man invited me to play a weekly two hour set at a local prayer room. Two hours. Seems like a long time, I thought.

A Primer On Rising And Falling Worship Songs In The CCLI Top 100 For Spring 2016

Posted on March 28, 2016

For Christian song writers, music publishers and worship leaders, CCLI (Christian Copyright Licensing International) provides a strong indicator to the kinds of worship songs that churches are singing around the world. Every year, new songs rise into our repertoires, creating an interesting shuffle in the list of top worship songs. If we are looking specifically at the Top 100 Worship Songs, as reported by the latest CCLI bi-annual reporting, there are only 100 spots. That means, if a song comes into the list, a song has to move out of the list. Some songs have incredible staying power, while others lose their momentum. Some songs are for a season, while others have a deep strength to continue ministering to churches with their message and melodies. We have put together a comparison of the recent CCLI Top 100 Worship Songs, assessing the movement of songs in this list to the previous reporting period.
