Acoustic guitar, singing and a bit of electric guitar
Hi! Firstly, I must confess that I'm the founder of Worship The Rock in case you're wondering who's responsible for this worship leader network :-)

"I wish our Church would embrace pre-service and use it to our (the congregations') advantage.

"Grant, that's a great idea having a youtube channel for those that are interested! At a previous church a few years back we did a song before the service started, as a way to get people to realize they needed to wind down socializing and…"
"It's a battle sometimes!
It's hard teaching a new song during the service as it can become very disconnecting for the congregation. Do you 'perform' half of the song and them encourage them to sing the last half? What…"
Thanks for the warm welcome, Phil! And thank you, too, for setting up and administering WTR. I'm so glad to have stumbled upon your site. Just reading the comments from you and some of the members have already encouraged me. Yes, I will invite our church's worship leaders to join. Stay blessed!
