I am a music pastor who spends a lot of service time on the platform, with my brain and spirit in overdrive, managing musical and spiritual moments. I love the rare occasions where I get to sit in my seat and soak in the experience of a dynamic combination of voices! It doesn’t matter if it’s a choir or a team of nine or just a trio. When it’s right, it’s an experience like none other! For me, the sum impact of a group of incredible singers will always exceed the impact of a world-class soloist.
The two featured songs this month are:
“Our God Reigns” by Israel Houghton, BJ Putnam, and Ricardo Sanchez and “Kingdom Come” by Covenant Worship. We will be providing lead sheets, vocal charts, and loops as downloadable resources for these songs.
Every now and then a new tool comes along and a few people use it with great success, then others try to copy their success and fail to obtain the same great results. That’s how it is with social media, there’s a few very public successes but no one ever really talks about what makes the successes great and what makes other attempts fail. What exactly makes Jimmy Fallon, ALS Awareness, and Share a Coke such great social media campaigns? While we don’t have all the answers we do have a few ideas that you may want to try. These are areas where we’ve seen churches and organizations falter.
