Small churches face a unique set of challenges, such as limited personnel, limited talent, limited budget, and more. But how do you overcome these seemingly insurmountable obstacles to create a thriving and excellent ministry? Thankfully, it’s not as complicated as you think. This month I talk to Andrea Olson from...

Ending The Worship Wars Over Style w/ Mike Harland

6/1/2019
More
Many churches struggle, fight, and (often) even split over musical style and preferences. This is a sad reality, because music is a gift to build the church, not a weapon to destroy it. In this month’s episode I talk with Mike Harland, the Director Lifeway Worship about what caused the “Worship Wars” of the 80’s and 90’s, how the fallout is still affecting us today, and how we can move beyond it to shepherd our people with music that transcends genre and points people to Christ. If you’re...

What is the purpose of production in worship? Why do we have lights, sound, and video in our services, and does the Bible have anything to say to inform us of their intended use? Even the most simple churches have to make decisions about how bright the lights are, and how loud the sound is. In this month’s episode, I interview the only man on planet earth with a PhD in the Theology of Production.

In fact, with some simple, prayerful planning you can craft and shape worship services that engage, excite and invite passionate participation from your congregants. This bonus episode is a...
