"We do this song in B or in A. It keeps the vocals low enough that the average Joe ( or Joan ) can hit the bigger notes without straining, but doesn't take away from the big powerful chorus. It puts it right in the middle so males or females can…"
"PC, I would also recommend you consider using one "band" for an entire month, then rotate to "band B", etc. This will keep the same team members together every time, and be less distracting for your congregation, as the team…"
"We all go out drinking together. OK, Not really! This actually just came up at our staff meeting. We are planning on doing the after church lunch outings, and having some sort of team fun time. A concert sounds like a great idea!"
"I stand corrected... you're right, I should have said just about every POPULAR hymn. I'm with you. I've been scouring my hymnals for songs that have not been redone, but would sound great using a more modern sound."
"Just about every hymn has been redone with a more contemporary spin on it. I would suggest you simply use Google to search for the name of a familiar hymn, and add the name of some of our more recent worship leaders. For instance, Chris Tomlin, Paul…"

"If there is one thing I have learned in my year's of ministry it's that communication within the leadership of the church is key. If you have a problem with how your pastor manages you, then address the issue with your pastor. Respectfully…"
I use www.worshipteam.com to manage my worship team and provide them with the necessary means to practice ahead of time, etc. It has become a very valuable resource, for low cost. I'm curious, though, if you use a similar product that does not incur a monthly fee, membership, etc. Thanks!See More
"There's only one reason I don't play secular rock songs in church. It's not a theological reason at all. I use only Christian rock songs because they don't get the exposure that secular songs do. There are enough bands covering…"
"We change ours up every so often to throw our people off and keep them from getting bored. On the rare occassion that we break the songs up, we usually keep playing while the person is talking and then go right back into that song to keep the flow…"
