4 Words of Encouragement for Worship Leaders In Small Churches

We’ve all been there haven’t we? We model our ministries after the mega churches and worship conferences. In fact, we even long to be in one of ‘those’ positions someday don’t we? Well before we start dreaming about the future, let’s take a look at where we are now.

 

Top 8 Worship Songs for Funerals

The gospel message revolves around the concepts of death and eternal life. It is a message of hope in a hopeless world; a light in the dark. For this reason, Christian songs are essential at funerals. They are a reminder that through Jesus, death is just a doorway to something greater.

 

The Worship Leader’s Job Description

Worship pastors, we often have lengthy job descriptions. Take a look at yours and see how many pages it has. Two? Four? Twelve?

NEW Underscore: Reckless Love

 

New this week at Worshipscores.com: a piano underscore based on the popular worship song Reckless Love.

 

You have to be a subscriber to access the sheet music, but anyone can listen to the underscore by clicking the "LISTEN: piano" link at the top right of the page.

 

I'm experimenting with a new, more "cinematic" sound with the MP3s starting with this underscore.

NEW Youtube Playlist!

 

I like to listen to Youtube videos/podcasts as I drive around and have wished I could find a good, current playlist of all the top worship songs.

 

I can't find any! So I made my own on the Worshipflow Youtube channel!

 

You'll find playlists for the top CCLI, Praisecharts and CCM radio hits updated every week.

About: Don Chapman’s passion is for the Church, music and technology, and he blends all three into resource websites devoted to contemporary worship: hymncharts(.)com and worshipflow(.)com. He’s the editor of the weekly worshipideas(.)com newsletter that’s read by over 30,000 worship leaders across the world. A prolific arranger and songwriter, Don has had songs published by Word, Integrity Music, G3worship and Worship Today, and has orchestrated music for Christian artists Chris Sligh and Jeremy Camp. He’s been featured on the 700 Club, has been quoted in USAToday and is a guest lecturer at Liberty University.

 

The first worshipideas email newsletter went out to about 400 people on February 11, 2002 (in the heyday, right before the blog explosion, the newsletter amassed over 100,000 subscribers. These days it hovers around 30,000.) Worshipideas was born out of Don’s own desire to share what he was learning as a first-time worship leader at a church plant. Back in 2002 contemporary worship was still fairly new and the worshipideas newsletter and website helped worship leaders across the world figure out this new form of worship.
