I’m late putting up our set-list! Sorry folks!

This was one of those services for me. One of THOSE services! I thought a lot went wrong. There were a lot of little mistakes on my part. Little mistakes on LeAnn’s part. But… and this is a big BUT… as the service went on I could tell that no one was fazed by them at all. Our church was worshiping the Lord! And I was so convicted right there on the stage, as we sang. My focus had been on details and technical issues that were held over from the pre-service run through, and I had failed to put those things aside in my mind and heart to do the one thing God had called me to do that morning – to lay everything aside and worship Him. I choked back the tears I felt and put it all down… and worshiped God.

I’m so thankful that God loves me in my imperfection. That He still calls me to do this even though I get it so wrong sometimes. He is a gracious and loving God, and He is so immensely worthy of our praise, worship, and adoration.

Thanks to all of you who read my blog. I really appreciate your comments. They are encouraging and bless me. So if you feel like it, please comment below and tell me what you did on Sunday at your church. Then go check out The Worship Community to read what others like us did at their churches.

Our Easter service was A-MA-ZING!

This was our first time singing My Savior Lives, and it was HIGH ENERGY! I loved that song! And we combined Worthy Is The Lamb and Rev Song into a power medley that sent our church into a deep attitude of worship. I was so touched by the whole service. Everything went perfectly. Praise God!

Our Pastor’s message was also amazing! We are so blessed to have such wise and dynamic teaching every Sunday.

Happy Easter, everyone!

Works

Recently, God has been wrecking my perceptions regarding church and ministry. It seems that I was really full of myself and I didn’t realize it at all. Isn’t it odd how we can be chugging along, “working for God”, but not notice some of the sin in our own hearts? I just knew I was dialed into what God wanted from me and that I had it mostly all figured out.

I didn’t.

So He’s opening my eyes to some things. Take a look at this scripture:

1 Corinthians 3:10-15 – “By the grace God has given me, I laid a foundation as an expert builder, and someone else is building on it. But each one should be careful how he builds. For no one can lay any foundation other than the one already laid, which is Jesus Christ. If any man builds on this foundation using gold, silver, costly stones, wood, hay or straw, his work will be shown for what it is, because the Day will bring it to light. It will be revealed with fire, and the fire will test the quality of each man’s work. If what he has built survives, he will receive his reward. If it is burned up, he will suffer loss; he himself will be saved, but only as one escaping through the flames.”

God is saying, what are you building on? Are you building on Christ, or on something else? And will your work escape the flames and become a reward for you, or will it burn up and be lost? “…the fire will test the quality of each man’s work.”

Then, He pointed me to Matthew 25.

I have to be totally honest here, it was a tough morning for us. We lost LeAnn’s grandmother at 1:30am last night. Neither one of us got any sleep to speak of. So that made it very difficult. We pushed through and worshiped our Lord. I know He was honored by it. But it wasn’t without it’s flaws. We had a rare train-wreck during “None But Jesus”. I was leading on acoustic. And for some reason my sound went out! Then, the band played something that didn’t sound right, my wife came in late with her line and it was so off that in my sleep deprivation I totally lost where I was in the song! UGH! I had to stop, quickly determine where we were and pick right back up. As train wrecks go, it was relatively mild because we hit right back on it and kept going. It made it harder though, because our youth group was doing an interpretive dance with the song. To their credit, they kept right on going and made it look easy.

Like I said, it was a tough morning. My sweet wife is grieving her grandmother. My Pastor(Father-in-law) is grieving the loss of his mother. But the Lord was lifted high today. And knowing all that was overcome to accomplish that… makes me smile. To Him be all glory and honor, forever. Now I’m going to go rest.

For His Kingdom,

Wayne

Culture of Crucial: Now Is Not Normal

baseball-290x232What do Major League farm systems and worship ministries have in common? For both to be successful over an extended period of time they have to be future minded.

Creating a Culture of Crucial means putting people first. Of course we should always be aware of positions and roles that need to be fulfilled, but we should never see people as a set of skills. People are PEOPLE!

Another way that we can create a culture where people are truly valued is to make every effort to combat the “Now is Normal” mentality.

Many of us who are worship leaders or pastors know that it’s very easy to slide into the status quo. We get into a place where there are plenty of musicians and singers on the team and we have our pick to choose from. On the outside it looks like we don’t need any more, because we have a jam-packed stage.

Whether you work with volunteer musicians, singers, children’s workers, parking lot attendants, youth workers, etc., we all face the temptation to kick it into cruise control and to see our present situation as the norm. We let it become the status quo. We should be careful to always be looking forward. We should be future minded, while leading intentionally in the present…
