Am I Legal!? Making Sense of Worship Copyright
In my time serving Tennessee Baptists, I have received more questions about worship copyright than any other topic. What license(s) do I need? What’s my risk if I don’t have the right license(s)? Can we use YouTube videos in our services? The questions go on and on. In this session, I’ll give a basic overview of worship copyright licenses, providing specific details about what each does—and does not—cover. I’ll share some true stories about legal issues in churches related to worship copyright. I’ll also answer frequently asked questions and take additional inquiries from attendees.

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.

We will cover 5 core principles that make a worship songwriting culture successful and sustainable: discipleship, songwriting education, community-minded perspective, communication skills, and contending for unity.

Using Songwriting To Create Unity In Your City
Truth and spirit crosses denominational lines. We can use songwriting to combine truth and spirit for one unified "Yes" that crosses denominational, generational, and ethnic barriers, so that we can agree on who Christ is and what He's done for us. Our pursuit of unity and glory for God positions the church to be sanctified by the Spirit and become the Bride of Christ who has made herself ready for Jesus return.

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.
