Brian Doerksen Live Stream Concert

Posted on June 14, 2019

While PraiseCharts officially began more than 20 years ago, the early seeds of inspiration took life in the early 1990's. Ryan Dahl, founder of PraiseCharts, was in the thick of university while interning at his home church (and learning to play acoustic guitar). At the same time, a new movement of worship was coming to life, and a key voice in that season for Ryan was Brian Doerksen (with Vineyard Music)... more

FinaleMusic Features PraiseCharts Lead Orchestrator, Dan Galbraith

Posted on February 4, 2019

We create a lot of different kinds of charts, but the crowning jewel of PraiseCharts is our modern worship orchestrations, uniquely designed for weekly congregational worship. Over the years, Dan Galbraith has penned more than 1500 full orchestrations for PraiseCharts. Along the way, he has attracted quite a following of music ministers who have come to trust his keen understanding of worship, music, and all the musicians that make up today's modern orchestra. Behind all the PDF's, Dan has literally become a master of one of the premier software platforms for arranging and transcribing: Finale.  Recently, FinaleMusic interviewed Dan Galbraith, and have now posted a full story in their blog, highlighting Dan's journey as an arranger. Take a moment to peal back the curtain and get a behind-the-scenes look at the man who leads our network of arrangers at PraiseCharts. Read the full story at www.finalemusic.com/blog.

Love Houston - Helping Worship Leaders Affected By The Flood

Posted on September 6, 2017

We are overwhelmed by the tragedy facing thousands of displaced families in the wake of Hurricane Harvey. Through PraiseCharts, we are connected to more than 1000 churches in Houston and the surrounding areas. Even one of our long time arrangers had his entire home flooded. Our hearts go out to all who are affected! Truly, there is little we can do to make a meaningful difference, considering the scope of this tragedy. And yet, we cannot just stand by and do nothing. So, we'd like to invite you, our customers, to join us in an attempt at making this small gesture of compassion.

First Love: A New Worship Collection from Dennis Jernigan

Posted on June 5, 2017

First Love is a 16 song collection of simple and intimate worship songs by Dennis Jernigan, writer of the popular You Are My All In All. These songs were recorded over a three day period in the studios of the American Family Association in Tupelo, MS. During those three days, Dennis simply worshiped Jesus - just him and the piano, and First Love is the result. First Love includes 10 of Jernigan’s most popular worship songs like You Are My All In All, Thank You, We Will Worship the Lamb of Glory, Who Can Satisfy My Soul and more. Also included is Passionate Obsession - a song of deliverance from the Father’s perspective.

Devote Yourselves To The Public Reading Of Scripture

Posted on March 12, 2017

For nearly 20 years, PraiseCharts has dedicated our self to resourcing the church with music for congregational worship. After all, the Bible tells us to “be filled with the Spirit, speaking to one another with psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit. Sing and make music from your heart to the Lord” (Eph 5:18b-19a, NLT). Singing in church is so important, and has a deep impact on our theology. We sing what we believe, and we believe what we sing. But the Bible also says, “devote yourself to the public reading of Scripture” (1 Tim 4:13, NIV). Apparently, there is more than just singing that a congregation can experience together ... more
