ARE YOU READY TO RISK AGAIN? From John 6 in The Message. “The Spirit can make life. Sheer muscle and willpower don’t make anything happen. Every word I’ve spoken to you is a Spirit-word, and so it is life-making. But some of you are resisting, refusing to have any part in this.” (Jesus knew from the start that some weren’t going to risk themselves with him…).’” More

How To Bring Your Congregation Forward In Worship

We all know the feeling. On any given week, the worship leader has invested hours of work preparing for that 20 minutes, 30 minutes, or 45 minutes of musical worship expression on Sunday.

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.

WHAT IS ON YOUR SPIRITUAL BUSINESS CARD? From Luke 3 in The Message. “After all the people were baptized, Jesus was baptized. As he was praying, the sky opened up and the Holy Spirit, like a dove descending, came down on him. And along with the Spirit, a voice: ‘You are my Son, chosen and marked by my love, pride of my life.’” 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.
