Should We Sing THOSE Songs?
Whether to sing songs from Bethel, Hillsong, or other questionable sources may be the most hotly debated topic among worship leaders today, what some have labeled the “new worship war.” Simply stated: are worship songs tainted or polluted by their source, even if otherwise singable, biblically accurate, and theologically sound? As worship leaders, it’s important for us to understand this hot-button topic so we are prepared to answer when those in our congregations inquire. Let’s take a thorough and balanced look at these issues, considering arguments from both sides, while I offer my own perspective and draw some conclusions.

Developing a youth band (how to make it attainable for everyone)
Youth worship is high-energy, full of passion and fire that burns in the heart of a young but excited Christian. Often youth worship can have moments of deep reflection and prayer when kids learn to connect lyrical content to their everyday worlds. But where do we find kids skilled, organized, or brave enough to create these groups? We will learn different perspectives and approaches focusing on encouraging team members and creating an atmosphere that inspires people—helping them find ways to start contributing to something from day one. Building a youth team is about building students’ confidence and faith journey, letting the music and art be the tangible expression of what is being built up internally.

Do Your Mics Help or Hurt?
After getting the source to sound the best that it can, a voice, a kick drum, a guitar cabinet or a cello, the mic choice and placement are in my opinion the most critical in obtaining the best sound for live worship, streaming or recording. I am not talking about your favorite brand or model. I am talking about the type, dynamic, condenser or ribbon; the polar pattern or how the mic responds to the source and the surrounding area, mic sensitivity and rejection. In most cases, the right mic in the right place will improve your sound dramatically. Can I use a dynamic where I would typically use a condenser? Are ribbons a safe bet in live performance? Learn how to choose and apply the different types to assorted applications and you will most likely not have to spend as much time behind the console trying to fix the source or the mic with EQ or dynamics.
