6 Solutions For A Bad Singer Who Wants To Join The Band

By January 19, 2017 Youth Worship

So, you have a bad singer who wants to join the band?

We all have had people join the band that aren’t really ‘qualified’ to; if you haven’t, you will. It can be a real pain in the butt to allow an untalented person on stage. My boyfriend and I have had our fair share of not so pleasant singers that felt like God has called them to worship. You’re a worship leader and you want to be nice but some people are just… bad.

Using God Merely as a 911 call

By January 17, 2017 Devotionals

About two years ago, I remember getting a phone call informing me that my grandpa was in the hospital. We drove thousands of miles to make sure we got there before things exaberated. When things were going in the opposite direction of what we were anticipating, different family members began asking me to pray with them.

6 Things To Do At Your First Practice

By September 23, 2016 Youth Worship
first practice

You’ve gotten kids that are interested… now what?

  • Plan a practice

    (Preferably two per week ) that coordinates to your time as well as theirs. We do ours on Sundays at 1:30 p.m. and Wednesdays at 4 p.m. Once you are with them, have them take a seat.

  •  Tell them a little about yourself and maybe even your testimony

    Let them know that you take this very seriously and it’s not something to be in if you aren’t serious in leading people in worship. If they don’t know what worship is, give them your definition with some scripture to back you up. Tell them what they will be doing and what to be expecting. Basically just an introduction to worship.

  • Figure out what instrument everyone is playing

    Then, set up so you can have the first practice.

Slow song: How He Loves by John Mark McMillan

How He Loves by John Mark McMillan

This is a slow song is one of my favorites and we definitely over-do it in my worship band. It is our go to song when something gets messed up or we aren’t prepared enough for what we’ve been practicing. And it never fails to get the church singing of a love that is so deep, so wide, so long, and so high. Most people know the David Crowder version, but my all time favorite version of this song is the original by John Mark McMillan.
Love has so many different meanings… There’s brotherly love, husband/wife love, Godly love, etc. So often in life we can use it like it is just another word; and often, it looses its meaning. The kind of love that John talks about in this song is a messy love. It’s a love that is willing to love no matter how messy or gross. It is willing to love things that are difficult. It is a strong love. That no matter how screwed up we are, or how angry we are, God loves us anyways. In the midst of our sin, in the midst of our trials, God loves us. He loves us with a love that is so powerful, a love that is so unconditional, and a love that is absolutely relentless. That is the kind of love that John is talking about in this song.
