Cliff Lambert, Christopher Bellamy, Laura Blankenship, Syndey Merrel, Ricky Ragone, Fox Watterson

In this episode we talk about:

  • How to effectively go about choosing the songs in our setlists at our church.
  • The importance of separating our personal preferences when choosing songs.
  • The use of a team in picking the music we do.
  • Why the congregation has to connect with the music they’re are singing.
  • The role that a worship leader should play if they are not the person to actually pick the song they’re leading.
  • Why scripture must also play a roll in what we are singing.
  • The importance of strong lyrical content.
  • Why we have to be a part of our congregation.  We have to live life with them to be able to understand what they need to sing.
  • How many people in our church aren’t listening to christian music throughout the week and why it is on us to help them sing their theology.

  1. I’ve always believed that we have to know the stories of those in our congregation to know the story of our church at any given moment in time. It’s dynamic, and relationships are the vitals we need, to have the current pulse. The season.

    Seasons change – at times, it seems the stories are of suffering, sometimes it’s joy and celebration, other times it’s frustration or disappointment.

    The only way we’ll know how to be effective in following the Spirit, is to stay close to Him. The only way we’ll know how to be effective in leading our congregation is to be close to them as well.

    You guys have hit all the right points- well done!

    I’ve been so blessed to be part of this community!
