Ask the Collective 6 // Choosing and Creating Music for Your Home Church

In this episode we talk with Chris from Brothers McClurg about the heart of selecting music for our church.  Some topics covered:

  • How every church will have it’s own unique needs for worship.
  • The desire to sound just like the recordings of bigger worship ministries and the struggle that can cause.
  • The need for songs in our sets that cause thought for our congregation.
  • How it is ok to do stripped down sets and music.
  • Starting the service with something more contemplative than a big uptempo one.
  • The art and craft of set building.  The importance of understanding who will be at the service and what they’ll need to sing.
  • How to maintain our spiritual walk with God.
  • Writing for our congregation or writing in emulation of others.
  • The importance of relationship with your senior pastor.
  • Encouragement for new worship leaders.
  • The place of hymns in our sets.
  • The need to connect our congregations to the truth of what they’re singing.
