Luke 22:42 “Father, if you are willing, remove this cup from me. Nevertheless, not my will, but yours, be done.” In our Christian lives there will always be a battle between choices of temporal ease and choices of eternal significance that bring great joy. When we say (or sing) the words “I surrender” to Jesus we are confessing His way is best ... more

Any artist who records a Christmas record will tell you straight up, it’s often an intense search for creativity, as much as anything else. In all seriousness and for the millionth time, “O Holy Night” cannot get any holier. And as brilliantly beautiful as “Mary Did You Know?” can be, the secret of that song is out. Mary knows. And so does all of Christendom ... more

Last week, a fun little task was presented to the PraiseCharts team. You can imagine the responses when they were asked to choose three of their favorite worship songs of all time. Afterall, of the 1000's of songs that live on the pages of the PraiseCharts site, how can you narrow it down to just three? Somehow though, they managed the task and shared their lists.
We thought it would be fun to share the team's picks with you. Some of these songs are new and others have been around for a long time. We know that for most of you a weekly set list is not made up of purely new releases, so here are some ideas of amazing songs that you may want to include in an upcoming service.
- Alive (Hillsong Young & Free, We Are)
- Amazing Love (Graham Kendrick, WOW Red)
- Before The Throne Of God Above (Sovereign Grace/Keith & Kristyn Getty, 30)
- Cornerstone (Hillsong, Cornerstone)
- Desert Song (Hillsong United, Across The Earth: Tear Down The Walls)

I lead worship every week for my community, and the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit – as well as disease, unemployment, divorce, and many other struggles – are always in the room with us. If a theology of resurrection (the empty tomb, renewal, personal transformation, healing, miracles) does not stand together in worship with a theology of suffering (the full cross, intercession, trouble, sorrow, struggle), then I contend our worship is out of accord with both the Scriptures and the daily news. more
Many years ago, while in London and Oxford, I toured some historic sites and saw various famous chairs and thrones. I remember thinking, “They aren’t as big and lavish as I thought.” Some were simple wooden thrones. Others were bejeweled with a few rare gems set in prominent view. What would have made the scene more spectacular would have been to get a glimpse of some royalty seated there, scepter in hand, servants standing by to carry out orders. The room would have taken on a whole new atmosphere had Henry VII or Queen Victoria been seated there. It’s who is seated there that makes all the difference. more

January 6, 2014 marked the last day of our Twelve Days Of Christmas give-a-ways. Nearly 1000 people were involved in nominating someone to win a beautiful guitar, handcrafted in Uganda, Africa by the Duncan Africa Society. We are thrilled to announce that Mark Howard won the guitar on behalf of his son, Grant Howard. Here are the words that Mark wrote for his nomination: "I have watched with a great deal of joy as my son Grant continues to surrender his life to God's calling on him. His considerable musical talent is easily surpassed by his sensitive heart as a worshipping leader."

Momentum continues to rise with another great year of powerful worship music being sung by churches across all denominations, all around the world. Some of the highlights for 2013 include the new Christmas Worship album by Paul Baloche, Matt Maher's remake of the classic hymn, Lord I Need You, the grand comeback of Darlene Zschech with Victor's Crown, and the somewhat surprising world-wide adoption of Oceans (Where Feet May Fall) from Hillsong United.

As we celebrate the coming of our Emmanuel, the blessed Son of God, I wanted to share a few thoughts from my heart to yours on WORSHIP and THE INCARNATION

The CCLI Top 100 is an exclusive list representing some of the most used worship songs from around the world. We've done a little digging into this list, and compared results to the last time the list came out. The results are quite fascinating. Read on to find out what are the top new songs, top songs that dropped off the list, and songs that used to be on the list.

Due to the rise of popularity in "worship music" as a radio genre, leading worship has been romanticized to the point that we expect it to be a completely sublime arena experience, where we as leaders are transported from our solid human form into a vapor floating around in the heavenly places, only to condense back into solid form after "worship" is over, metaphorically speaking, of course. While that might happen sometimes, more often here in the real world, it is like spinning plates while riding a unicycle. We're usually just trying to keep our balance while keeping all of the elements of worship from crashing to the floor. Continue reading...

I get to be around a lot of music in my line of work. I play a jazz gig once in awhile, work with bands and orchestras, play in a couple of worship bands, lead worship on Sunday with a band, transcribe a ton of new music these days for PraiseCharts and get to arrange for hire. You could say music is my life and my life is music and in one sense of the phrase, you would be correct.

"Came to Save” in a nutshell is my life story and the purpose of why Christ came. Funny thing is it was never intended to be on the album. I co-wrote the song with Nate Smith at Centricity Music and did a quick demo and stored in and among a bunch of other songs that were 80% finished. About a week before we went into the studio I came across the demo while looking through some old song ideas for the final track on the album. I sent the demo to my producer Matt Armstrong and he immediately wrote me back saying that he really liked this song. We spent some time over video Skype playing through and finalizing the chorus but it still needed something. It started to grow legs.

I’ve listened through to Robin Mark’s newest CD “Year of Grace” a couple of times and one thing is for sure - if you are a fan of Robin Mark, you will like this CD. This 12-song CD was recorded live at North Syracuse Baptist Church in Syracuse, NY back in January and produced by Paul Mills.
Featuring Sovereign Grace Posted on June 20, 2010
Though it’s entirely possible that you’ve never heard of them, Sovereign Grace Music is by no means a new-comer to contemporary praise & worship. Formerly known as PDI Praise, they have been honing their vision of doctrinally precise & passionate praise long before their early hits “I stand in Awe” – which is still appears regularly in the CCLI top 100 after 21 years – and their popular rearrangement of “Before the Throne”, were being sung in churches everywhere. more

As you can see, the songs that seemed to be more “congregation friendly” jumped off this CD and were noticed by all the review team. For churches who may have a smaller band or who don’t have the skill level needed to learn some of these riffs and chords, there are still a couple of keepers. Churches should always keep in mind that they can make these songs their own, with arrangements that fit their team and style.
