God of salvation
You chased down my heart
Through all of my failure and pride
On a hill You created
The light of the world
Abandoned in darkness to die
And as You speak
A hundred billion failures disappear
Where You lost Your life so I could find it here
If You left the grave behind You so will I
So Will I | #HillsongUnited
🙌🏻 WORSHIP GOD MORE AND COMPLAIN LESS 👍
I recently came across @artofhomage and have been digging not only their apparel but the message behind their brand. I was so excited about the shirt and hat I ordered from them that I made this quick video.
Watch the complete video on my Youtube channel (link in bio). 📺
Channel, thanks for your hard work building @artofhomage. You’re truly an inspiration. And thanks for making a great product! 👍
At the end of the day it does not matter how bad or good you sing but what comes out of your heart. There are many out there with great talents great voices great musicians but broken from inside, only a few are willing to serve that extra mile worshiping God in spirit and in truth. Analyze yourself this morning are you in the worship team or making music for you to get recognized? or are you doing it with a humble heart worshiping the lord in spirit in truth? How is your heart this morning? Always remember who are we do in it for don’t let pride get in the way. Let the spirit flow in your life and keep worshipping Jesus with all your heart ❤️~Reyna #worshipleaders#musicians#worshipteam
Should you have instrumental solos during worship? Leave your opinion 👇!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
TO SOLO OR NOT TO SOLO?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Simply put, soloing can quickly become performance when leading worship.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So, should worship team musicians solo during worship?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
First of all, if you're a bass player you should never solo... Just kidding 😂⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
When it comes to solos, they should be used sparingly.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Always ask the question: is this allowing people to focus on God? Or is this going to draw attention to me?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Sometimes instrumental solos allow people to focus on God. An empty instrumental section can be just as distracting as a sweep picking solo during Heart of Worship.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Simple melodies always work best. Think of your soloing as a lead line. Something that draws the song forward and doesn't draw attention to yourself.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What are your thoughts on soloing during worship?

Most people would think leading worship for a large group of people would be more intimidating than a smaller setting, but I’ve actually found the opposite to be true. If you have the opportunity to lead for a group of ten or twenty people, my friend Nathan Drake (@nvdrake ) has 5 tips to help you out. YouTube link in my IG bio.
I’ll sing the night into the morning
I’ll sing the fear into your praise
I’ll sing my soul into your presence
Whenever I say your name, Jesus
Let the devil know not today
I was about to go to bed. And then out of nowhere I wanted to learn how to lead this song. So here I am at midnight with my guitar charting it out and singing it through instead of sleeping. Lol. I always figure there’s a good reason why I need to be singing this right now. Any other #worshipleaders out there using “Not Today” in your worship sets yet? I’m looking forward to testing it out... #letthedevilknownottoday

What's the newest song you've introduced to your church? Let us know and tag the artist 👇!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
INTRODUCING A NEW SONG - (PART 2) - TEACH THE CONGREGATION A PART⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
One way to introduce a new song to your church is to teach them a part of it. Typically that part is the chorus or bridge.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It's important to teach them a part of the song because if you don't, they will just sit there trying to figure out the song the whole time you lead it.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
In contrast, if you take the time to teach them the chorus, then every time you get to the chorus in the song they will be able to participate.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Here are two ways to teach them a part of a song:⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
1️⃣ - Before you lead the song, say to the congregation "Hey everyone! We want to teach you a new song today. (insert what the song is about here). We'd love to teach you the chorus! It goes like this." Then sing the chorus through a couple times and go into the song. This gives your congregation a fighting chance to participate in singing and ultimately connect with the song the first time you lead it.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
2️⃣- A more abstract way to introduce a new song is to tag the chorus or bridge onto a song that you're congregation is already familiar with. This could be done earlier in the service and then you introduce the new song at a later point. Or you can even introduce the chorus a week before.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
For example, you could tag the bridge of King of My Heart onto the end of No Longer Slaves. Or you could tag the chorus of Reckless Love onto the end of How He Loves.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
There are a ton of possibilities. Just make sure the themes, keys, and time signatures match up.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Next time you introduce a song to your church start by teaching them a part!

🔴10 NEW BUNDLES OF AMBIENT PADS FOR YOUR WORSHIP MINISTRY🔴
Over 1,000 churches have downloaded our free bundle of Churchfront Pads that my friend @boomerbate made. Here are a few of the things worship leaders around the world have told me about the pads.
🙌“These are the first pads I’ve downloaded and wow, what a difference they make.”
😲“It’s like we have a new worship team member!”
❤️“I love the pads! I was blown away by the ones you shared through your podcast. In my opinion, they are better than all the ones I purchased elsewhere.”
Today I am excited to announce that Boomer and I have released 10 NEW BUNDLES OF CHURCHRONT PADS.
Here’s what you need to know about the 10 new bundles of pads.
Each bundle has a unique sound crafted by Boomer for worship.
Each bundle contains audio files for all 12 keys of music.
The pad audio files are 20 minutes long.
The audio files are in high-quality MP3 format.
You can play these pads on your phone or tablet using free apps.
Our new bundles of ambient pads will enhance the sound of your worship band by making it sound full and modern. It doesn’t matter if you are a solo leader or if you have a large band. Pads work for both contexts. You’ll have the freedom to speak or pray between songs without simultaneously playing an instrument. You’ll eliminate dead space between songs and create smooth transitions. You’ll have a variety of pad sounds to select for appropriate moods and energy levels in worship.
For a limited time, we are making the complete bundle of 10 pads available to the Churchfront Community for half-price. Purchase the pads before the deadline expires to take advantage of this offer.
You can demo the 10 pad sounds and purchase instant access by clicking the link in bio.
I was blown away by how many worship ministries were impacted by Boomer’s free bundle of pads. I cannot wait to hear about the transformation this ultimate bundle brings to worship bands across the globe, including yours!

My thoughts on this Monday morning: Don’t let fear or insecurity stand in your way of creating. Don’t believe the voice that says 'someone else is already doing what I want to do', or 'they do it so much better than me so what's the point.' What has God put in your heart to do? Focus on that and go for it. Our part of the equation is to show up and follow through. What happens after that is completely up to Him. #perspective#goforit

Wow. What a weekend. God is so gracious to me. Not only has he given me great friends that I am proud to call my brothers and sisters in Christ, but has allowed me to play music and lead His people in worship with them. These guys are so talented and have true hearts for serving the Lord. They are all great encouragers and are so generous. I had so much fun bonding with these guys this week. Thanks again for the opportunity @jmer12 Love y’all and love serving the Lord with y’all! #bestband#worshipleaders#wedontknowwhatweredoing#worshipdrummer#servethelord
What "non-worship" band have you learned the most from musically? Tag them 👇!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
LEARN SECULAR SONGS TO IMPROVE YOUR MUSICIANSHIP⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
As church musicians, it's easy to get caught up in only playing and learning songs that we would lead at our church.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The truth is that there is so much more to learn from secular songs. These are songs that are written as performance pieces and not with people singing in mind. This allows the artist to have more musical freedom. So when we learn songs not written for the church (even within the Christian genre), it allows us to expand our musical vocabulary.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This helps us become better musicians and ultimately better worship leaders.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The trick is to mentally sift through what you've learned from the song (a technique, a guitar tone, a rhythm, etc.) and ask yourself the question: how can I apply this in a church setting?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The key to answering that question is by answering: will it be distracting or will it help focus people on God?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Take the time to learn a "non-worship" song this week and see how you can incorporate what you've learned into your worship leading!
