10 Best Practices For Worship Sound Techs

Dan Wilt | October 27, 2014 | Categories: News | Tags: , , , , ,

Perhaps no technical leader faces more challenges on any given Sunday morning than the Sound Tech. With demands from every side, opinions aplenty, an ear to the Pastor (the real head Sound Tech), an an ear to the worship leader/band, and an ear to the Holy Spirit, this role requires a saint, a sound technician, and a servant – all wrapped up in one. Gleaned from some of the most skilled and great-hearted Worship Sound Techs I know, here are More

4 Silver Bullets For Battling Depression In Your Life

Dan Wilt | September 17, 2014 | Categories: News | Tags: , ,

Like millions today, I’ve faced the demon of depression for much of my life. In fact, I’ve battled severe depression ever since I was in the 7th grade, when I would cry my way through a long day of classes with a book held up in front of my face to hide my tears. My parents didn’t know what to do with my incessant sadness, and a brief mental breakdown during my high school years raised everyone’s awareness – especially my own – that something More

Gungor, Beeching And Moving On From Christian Celebrity Culture

Dan Wilt | September 3, 2014 | Categories: News | Tags: , ,

On this blog, I intentionally stay focused on supporting worship leaders and teams with ideas, inspiration, and hopefully raw encouragement that keeps us strong in doing what we do for the long haul. But some things get going out there that ruffle feathers, cause confusion, and even stir fear in us. The recent news items about Michael Gungor/Genesis, and Vicky Beeching/Gay have had quite a ripple effect. My response here, as usual, is neither More

Finding The Courage To Lead

Scott Allen | March 29, 2011 | Categories: Blogs | Tags: , ,

Change. Innovation. Leadership. All three require the courage to step out of status quo and risk something. Your current job description may not include the necessity to take the lead, but if you’re living, breathing and have a vision, it’s somewhere in the plan for you to lead. Some way, shape or form, it’s in your DNA. It’s in your assignment.  Keep reading. More

Skillfully Combining God's Word

Bob Kauflin | June 10, 2010 | Categories: Blogs | Tags: , , ,

“Come join us this Sunday for worship and the Word.” I've heard that invitation more than once. It's an unfortunate dichotomy. Most people understand it like this: Worship is when we sing and experience God's nearness, express our love for him, and allow his Spirit to move in our midst. All right-brain activities. Hearing the Word, on the other hand, appeals to our left brain. It's mind food. It's for our intellects, designed to make us think, More

Worship In Times Of Sorrow

Paul Baloche | June 9, 2010 | Categories: Blogs | Tags: , , , , , , ,

Some of the hardest yet most inspiring times of worship occur during funerals. The raw emotions of sadness and loss are mixed with a sense of hope and eternal perspective. More

How to Glory in the Cross of Christ

Bob Kauflin | May 11, 2010 | Categories: Blogs | Tags: , , ,

Worshiping God in spirit and truth involves magnifying the way God has shown his greatness in Jesus Christ and his glorious work of redemption. This doesn't happen automatically for us or for those we lead. I've learned I need to present these truths in consistent, clear, and compelling ways. “To see what is in front of one's nose needs a constant struggle,” George Orwell wrote. Unless we consistently keep the cross within our view, More

For God's Glory

Bob Kauflin | May 2, 2010 | Categories: Blogs | Tags: , , ,

Christ's work on the cross displays God's glory most clearly. As we set our hearts and minds on worshiping God, his various attributes can begin to seem contradictory to our finite minds. He is merciful and gracious, compassionate, forgiving, abounding in steadfast love. But he's also pure, holy, and righteous, and he “will by no means clear the guilty” (Exodus34:7). How do we worship this God in truth without minimizing any aspect of More

Magnifies the Greatness of God

Bob Kauflin | April 28, 2010 | Categories: Blogs | Tags: , , ,

“Great is the Lord,” David reminds us, “and greatly to be praised, and his greatness is unsearchable” (Psalm 145:3). David shows the appropriate starting point for worship. It involves thinking about, magnifying, and responding to the glory and splendor of God. Many of those we lead on Sunday morning are eager to join us and have been magnifying God's unsearchable greatness all week. Others are distracted. It could be anything More
