"Not wishing to be a party pooper or a luddite, but the amount of resources used to create an iPad would provide an awesome amount of printed copies of music. There seems to be an irony that the suggestion to 'use less stuff' is encouraging…"
"This leads to another topic I've brought up before: the person who isn't the leader being able to encourage a culture change when I haven't got everyone voluntarily tuning before rehearsal or service to the instrument which cannot…"
"Hey Greg! Well if you had an iPad, you could ask whoever provides your charts to email those PDFs to you... or to post them somewhere online where you could download or import them. This is what most people do. I used to print off charts for band…"
"Coming up again in a couple months. Given our low level of tech integration (low is charitable), someone sell me on using an iPad for what would at this time be a standalone tool for a volunteer electric guitarist who receives CCLI stamped hardcopy…"
"Hey guys... SongSheet has posted a short and simple tutorial showing how you can easily import WorshipReady.com chord charts right into the SongSheet iPad app (or iPhone) now!
"Charles, honestly, a lot of the top winners were not members of WorshipTheRock... which of course was not a requirement (and hasn't been in previous years either). Most of them have signed up for accounts throughout the process of the contest…"
"So I'm not sure how much you're looking for in terms of comments, and as somebody who didn't enter the contest at all, maybe I shouldn't say anything, but a couple quick things...
For the style of music we do in our church with…"
"Nice Daniel. :) Of course, that lyric isn't a Hillsong lyric but comes from the old hymn "The Solid Rock". Like MANY old hymns, there are lyrics that are confusing and mean absolutely nothing to the average listener today. In this…"
The app for iPad and iPhone, SongSheet Pro, has now released the new version 3.0. It has a LOT of great improvements over previous versions. If you haven't checked out this app, or just not for a long time, you need to! One of the big changes is the integration of WorshipReady.com as a chord chart source. WR subscribers can login to their account within the app and easily import chord charts into the app! Of course, being from WorshipReady, they are the best charts that you could import from…See More
"Hey Joe! I was listening to your songs that you shared here... and wondering why you didn't participate in the songwriting contest. You have some good stuff here that you certainly should have submitted! Next time. :)"
I grew up in the church as a PK (Pastor’s Kid) and was involved in the worship band from a young age. Growing up, I played saxophone not only in my church, but in various worship bands, events, camps and recording projects. I then graduated from Indiana University School of Music with a performance degree on saxophone. While in college, I began doing some worship leading in my local church, then other churches, then took a full-time music pastor position right after graduating. I served in that capacity (in a few places) for about 8 1/2 years. Then I switched gears and launched my own web development business (which I had done part-time while working in the church). After a brief break, I stepped into a new part-time music pastor position at a church plant and helped grow the church to about 550 members in 8 years. I have recorded 9 live worship CDs and been a part of many others during my 20 years of worship leading experience.
I was very involved in a local worship conference that lead to discussions of how to further and regularly resource and serve local church music ministries. Out of all of it, WorshipReady.com was born. It was created to become the highest quality worship chord chart resource, with direct connection to the iPad OnSong app, and also to build a community and overall worship leader resource. Then in October 2016, I took on the ownership of WorshipTheRock!
My wife and 1 of our 5 kids live in Loveland, CO, where we just moved to summer of 2017. Although not serving presently in a music pastor role, I am looking forward to getting connected in our new city and church!

Hi, just got back on, been busy with knee surgery etc. I just recently sold off all my electric stuff and am sticking with acoustic for our new direction in ministry. I got a Taylor 314CE instead and love it. It works best for every situation!
Hey Nathan, thanks for the welcome and friend request. I have followed you guys for a couple of days and it's really nice to see the comradery, support, and transparency among you guys. Charlie (from Louisiana)
