STEVEN'S PICKS (May)
These are resources that I have found to be helpful, encouraging, or just plain fun.
Modern worship leaders are restless. They have inherited a model of leadership that equates leading worship with being a rock star. But leading worship is more than a performance, it's about shaping souls and making disciples. Every worship leader is really a pastor.
The Worship Pastor is a practical and biblical introduction to this essential pastoral role. Filled with engaging, illustrative stories it is organized to address questions of theory and practice, striving to balance conversational accessibility with informed instruction. It is meant to be read by pastors, worship leaders, worship teams, and anyone else interested in deepening their understanding and experience of worship.
While some worship leaders are eager to embrace their pastoral role, many are lost and confused or lack the resources of time or money to figure out what this role looks like. Zac Hicks gives us a clear guide to leading worship, one that takes the pastoral call seriously.
I highly recommend this book by my friend Zac Hicks.
One of the most powerful vocalists in Christian music, Phelps lends his three-octave range to some of the most treasured hymns of the church with this all-new recording.
An acclaimed member of the Gaither Vocal Band for many years, Phelps showcases masterful vocals and lush arrangements of such cherished gems as "Amazing Grace," "How Great Thou Art," "In The Garden," "Victory In Jesus" and "It Is Well With My Soul," taking the listener on a journey of inspiration and worship in song.
