Great list, David. I haven’t seen all of those. My worship blog didn’t exist when you wrote this post, so I want to mention it here for those who stumble upon this list later – like me! I'd love for you to check out my worship blog at http://pamelahaddix.com/. Like my worship study, “Worship and the Word,” my blog isn't just for worship leaders/teams, but is for anyone who wants to better understand what the Bible teaches about God’s plan for us as His worshipers. As you know, it’s a truly completely life-changing topic to study, but sadly not something that is taught about enough in the average church. You can learn more about "Worship and the Word" at http://pamelahaddix.com/worship-and-the-word-about-the-book/. I was blessed and humbled for it to be chosen by Worship Leader Magazine as one of the “Best of 2014” books. Congrats for the honor on your blog this past year! Glad to stumble onto your site - I need to spend more time here! Thanks, David! Pamela Haddix

Comment on Should I Stay or Should I Go? by Brandon

Thu, 24 Sep 2015 14:27:00 +0000

Hi David! yes...this was a long process of soul searching. I met with the other church several times, and there was a period where I thought I would end up moving to that church. I had a couple weeks of vacation at the end of August, so I took that time and did a LOT of praying, and journaling. Long story short, At the end of that couple of weeks it was clear to me that God was using this situation to revive my vision and passion for my current church...and that I still had work to do there. So...regardless of how much less chaotic my life would be with 1 full time job (instead of 2 or 3 part time), I chose to stay and keep building where I am. And I feel very confident in that decision...so all in all, this was a good process for me to go through!

Comment on Should I Stay or Should I Go? by Brandon

Thu, 16 Jul 2015 15:30:00 +0000

I am in a situation where I am happy where I am. I love the leadership that I do ministry with. But I am only part-time. and unless things change drastically, I don't see that ever changing. I have been working multiple jobs for the last 14 years trying to eek out a living and support my family. I have just learned about a full-time position that has opened up at another church where I live. So this would be an opportunity for career advancement, as well as, being able to better provide for my family. But the idea of leaving my current church feels like betrayal. And the idea of going somewhere new is also a bit frightening. I'm not sure whether God is calling me out of my comfort zone to a new church, or calling me to be content with what I have. any advice on my situation would be much appreciated!

Comment on Does Your Family Miss Easter While You’re Working At Church? by Laura Blankenship

Wed, 18 Mar 2015 21:42:00 +0000

Jennifer, it really is hard! I'm sure that all church leaders struggle with this. I'm praying that with some effort on my part, my kids won't get the short end of the stick. Thank you for reading!



Comment on Does Your Family Miss Easter While You’re Working At Church? by Jennifer Hudson

Wed, 18 Mar 2015 18:12:00 +0000

I can relate to the lack of 'holiday' that she brings up. After being part of a worship team & then the worship leader for most of my adult life, I have now found myself not knowing how to simply enjoy the church holidays. My kids have missed out, and I missed out on enjoying these holidays with them, as I had to be at church - often leaving before they were even out of bed.

Great article Josh. You're speaking my language. It's one of my pet peeves when churches have a fantastic Easter service, then the week after is a disaster. I'd rather dial down Easter than over dial it so much that it leads to disappointment.

Comment on It’s A Man’s World, Even In Worship Music by David Lindner

Mon, 16 Feb 2015 23:28:00 +0000

We have done the same thing. And I too agree, too many different keys gets confusing. When I started leading worship at a church, the guitarist was so used to playing in different keys that he had started learning the riffs in all the keys so he'd be ready. We shouldn't do that to our volunteers! As far as the MP3, what we've done is to do a board recording of the song in they key we played it in. Josh is absolutely right about the chipmunky thing, and it can be pretty annoying! The board recording may not be at the same production level, but it's in the right key and will sound like what they're used to playing with. Plus, you can allow people to download that recording for free via PCO, which we're not technically supposed to do with licensed recordings, unless we're paying for the practice thing they offer.



Comment on It’s A Man’s World, Even In Worship Music by Josh Ferris

Mon, 16 Feb 2015 23:20:00 +0000

Sure. On the arrangement page for the song, use the "add a key" feature at the bottom of the page to create you're new key. Then hover over the MP3 to see two blue arrows pointing up and down (pic attached). Click that and you'll get the option to create an MP3 in the new key that you just created. Anything more than a step starts sounding "chipmunky", but it's usually good enough to practice with. Hope that helps!



Comment on It’s A Man’s World, Even In Worship Music by Laura Blankenship

Mon, 16 Feb 2015 22:40:00 +0000

Awesome, Josh! That is a great thought and idea! We actually have 2 songs set up that way in Planning Center. They were like that before I was the Worship Leader. Would you mind sharing how you do the MP3 for the other key? I haven't found an easy way to do that yet. Thanks!



Comment on It’s A Man’s World, Even In Worship Music by Josh Ferris

Mon, 16 Feb 2015 22:26:00 +0000

Great post Laura! This hasn't happened a lot, but on a couple songs we've opted to have 2 available keys - one for a guy, another for a girl. I'm totally with you on consistency producing excellence, but 2 versions hasn't seemed too taxing. Planning Center helps; we can throw up both keys with charts and MP3's for each. Enjoyed reading.

I did press the button siocal action. I agree with Loyd that I do not agree with the view that my work in the community comes with a price. Yes, if the young person wants to talk about faith then I will. I do make sure there are places and spaces where it is clear I am a christian and where I invite those who want to know more about faith. But the rest is all about relationship and serving the young person where they are not where I want them to be.
