Beyond Control is only King’s Kaleidoscope’s second full-length record but it doesn’t feel like it. The band released their first EP in 2011 and has been prolific ever since with a solid catalog of live recordings and studio EPs in addition to their two records. Whether its because or in spite of having released the […]
I was 7 years old in 1989, but that’s entirely beside the point… Taylor Swift’s hit record was the biggest thing in 2014. I came across it while on my way back from a mission trip where I let some youth group kids control the stereo, and I’ll admit that I really liked it (I’m […]
Adam challenges our song lists, and brings strategy to our song selection.
Editor’s Note: This tutorial assumes that the reader has at least a general understanding of a guitar and basic fretboard theory, including key signatures, note names and guitar-centered terminology. If you are unfamiliar with these concepts, please refer to this post for a great introductory lesson about basic fretboard theory. A capo (short for the […]
Psalm 46:10 says “Be still, and know that I am God”. This is a comforting verse, usually referenced in times of stress and chaos. People who’ve been in the same church for a long time, or who’ve come to a new church to fill a public position like worship pastor can forget what it’s like […]
I was asked to write a piece on what to do when you’re the new at a church and want to serve in the worship ministry. But I found that I kept making references to the process of finding a new church home, and my article was useless without this one as a starting point. There was a […]
I wasn’t sure how to approach this review, so I’ll start off with a basic idea: this is a good record. It flat out defeats and repels two of the great criticisms of modern church music. The first is that the lyrics of modern church songs are just repackaged love songs. Go ahead and try […]
Adam breaks down The Modern Post’s Christmas EP.
Citizens and Saints first release since their departure from Mars Hill music and changing their name from just “Citizens”, Join The Triumph is a synth-rock tour de force. The album celebrates Jesus’s victory over sin and death and our new life in Him. It’s probably the most accessible worship record I’ve heard in a long […]
Originally appeared on realworldworship.org Recently, this question was put to me: “I’d like to play more at church but the worship leader seems to always be picking others over me, what can I do about this?” The truth is that this is a complex issue. I know a lot of worship leaders who really like […]
Last Sunday Morning (August 24th) at 3:20 AM I woke up to one of the scariest moments of my life. As we all now know, the South Napa Quake was a 6.1 on the Richter Scale. My family faired far better than just about everyone else we know. Where we only lost one jar, others […]
Adam brings us a comprehensive review of JHS’ new “Channel strip in a box” pedal.
Find yourself in a ministry position that’s a poor fit? Adam brings us some perspective. The Accidental Worship Leader.
What would “The Complete Worship Service” look like? Think about Revelation chapters 4 & 5. In this passage we see the heavenly realm, the throne room of God, and a glimpse of worship on the eternal level. I think if we were to look honestly at these verses we would see things about the […]
