Worship goes beyond songs, words, notes, chords and instruments. Worship means to pay homage, falling before someone feet, glorifying a deity, honor paid to dignity, kind of reverence ascribing worth. Genesis 22:5 that was the first mention of the word Worship in the Bible, it denoted sacrifice and obedience.
Worship in today’s ages and to some people means songs and music, that is 3 praise song and 3 worship songs if there are more than 6 songs at your church…
Many believers struggle with knowing what is appropriate as far as music used in worship. Unfortunately, many Pastors seldom preach about worship and may have done little study of the subject. Other Pastors or Evangelists may have very limited preferences for what they feel is appropriate and preach these preferences as gospel. God's people are often left confused or very opinionated about what is appropriate based upon their own preferences or upon what they have heard. In over 30 years…
When one speaks about worship beyond just singing and music, people tend to squirm. The question I kept looking for in the word of God was “is there worship beyond singing and music”. Worship in the word of God is shown that it goes beyond words. Worship isn't an act but it so a lifestyle and a daily experience that one lives every day.
Our lives are sometimes a mystery but the greatest gift we have been given is worship. Fruit is one way that we can worship…
Praise God for the gift of music! Sometimes the emotions and the longings that we feel inside are inexpressible. Words often seem inadequate to describe these depths and heights of human emotion and of the human condition. Our relationships with those who we love as well as our relationship with the Lord cannot be reduced to mere verbal expression. It is in situations such as these that music can be employed to give expression beyond what words convey. What a blessing it is to be given…

From the perspective of the artist music was always an extension of personality and experience. Attaching emotional significance to an historical event, regardless of where it fit in the cycle of life, was one way to help future generations… Continue
If you ever study Old Testament worship, you will discover that the most popular worship song there is "Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever." You will find that it appears at key points in Israel's history. For example;
1. When David brings the Ark into Jerusalem (1 Chr 16:34) and institutes a ministry of constant prayer and praise unto the LORD;
2. At the dedication of the Temple Solomon built unto the… Continue

I recently (June 2009) stepped down as worship pastor at a church and left so that I could help my daughter find a church she could get plugged into. This was a sad time, but not difficult. I would rather see my girls worshiping God with all they are than be a well celebrated worship pastor any where in the world. But you want to know the most frustrating part for me.....re-learning to worship without critiquing the team. : \ I try hard not to get into a critique mode, but I almost always find… Continue

To follow up from our Songwriters weekend, I want to let you hear from Incubator recording artist, Judy Deans. We are blessed to work with her and I'm pretty sure you're going to find her enthusiasm contagious!
So many have asked about the weekend held over Labor Day at the Incubator campus just outside Eugene, Oregon. I thought I would post a link so you could see and take a listen to the seven artists in action. The link has rough cuts without edits, and an MP3 of the final cut. We're into 'hatching' good stuff and these artists stepped it up and birthed a song in a couple of days! Check 'em out: Paul Baker,… Continue
