Word Of God SpeakMercy Me

This morning was an awesome time of worship! Everything went well, and I loved the attitude of worship that I saw! My only regret is that I started tearing up on Word Of God Speak, and for whatever reason I couldn’t shake it off. My voice was shaky from trying to control the torrent of tears that was pressing the backs of my eyes. Nevertheless, everyone worshiped through my emotions and poor singing, so I was glad.

Has this ever happened to you? What do you do when you’re leading a song and tears of surrender and worship press hard to be released? My throat closed up and my vocals were rendered powerless. Vocal gurus, is there a secret to controlling this?

Thank you for reading my blog. I would love it if you would comment below and tell me about your worship service/s this morning. And I invite you to go over to check out other Sunday Setlists at

Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus – Invitation/Altar call


I stepped away from blogging over the last couple of months.  Summer time-Family time-Down time. But I’m excited to be back in my blogging chair! 

I was very pleased with our worship service on Sunday. As you can see, we had a Lincoln Brewster kick-off to the morning. And even though we were without our drummer, those songs provided great energy and some awesome praise to the King!

The song “Pure”, by Gateway is one of my favorites. And LeAnn always sings the Kari Jobe stuff that we do so beautifully! This one is a staple in our rotation, and it was a great moment of worship on Sunday.

I run to You when my heart is weak
I cling to You, You’re all I seek
It’s my heart’s desire to be close to You
Here in Your arms I find my strength


And Hiding Place, by Jared Anderson was a sweet, closing moment to our worship time. God is our hiding place. I love Psalm 46: “God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.” says that ‘refuge’ means – shelter or protection from danger, trouble. It’s so vitally important for us all to realize how real, and how tangible our ‘hiding place’ or our ‘refuge’ is in the Lord. And I love how the chorus of this song stayed in theme with the chorus of ‘Pure’.

I will run to the hiding place
I will run to the hiding place
Draw me ever closer to look upon Your face
I will run to the hiding place

I hope you had an intimate time of worshiping our Lord and Savior during your worship service. Would you comment below, and share any special moments you had in your church service, or with the Lord in general this week?

I was so glad to get back to our normal set. Christmas music is fun once a year, but like I mentioned in my last post, it gets really old after a solid month of it! Today’s set-list was awesome! We’re still down a drummer and an electric guitarist, so I played drums on the first four songs, and then I broke off and sang some harmony behind LeAnn on Grace Flows Down. And I must say, my wife absolutely NAILED that song! I’m not biased either! Nailed it!

Thanks for stopping by to check out our set-list! Now go right over to and check out what churches all over the world did this morning!

Today, we did our first Christmas music of the season. It was awesome! The worship center was all decorated, and it was a good kick-off to the Christmas season for our church. Having said that, LeAnn has a broken tooth and was in major pain through the whole thing. Poor wifey! But overall, it was a great morning of worship!

Worship Leader Blogs

Recently, I was asked this question by a fellow worship leader, “Do people from your church have access to your blog?” As it turned out, my friend’s Pastor stumbled across her blog and put a link to it on the church website. And it was really troubling her because she wasn’t wanting church members to have access to the sometimes sensitive  information she was passing along to other WL’s for feedback about, well… THEM. To me, this was very understandable. And, for the record I think the Pastor should have gotten her permission to do that.

As for me, my church does have access to my blog. In fact, there is a link to it right on my bio page on the church’s website. Personally, I have other avenues, with which I can share more sensitive issues and get valuable feedback in the process. But for some WL’s, their blog is a sacred place. In some respects, and especially within the confines of the worship leader network that has developed from the blog carnival at, there is a lot of behind-the-scenes, sensitive sort of information being shared among all of us. So I fully understand my friend’s feelings here.

There is no right or wrong answer, as we all have uniquely different situations and circumstances. But in an effort to gain a wider perspective, I would like to know your take on this issue.

Worship Leaders, do YOU share your blog with your church?

Sunday Set List – 6/28/09


I’m trying to get back into the habit of doing this after taking some time off. So, here we go:

Sunday was more worshipful than I remember our set being in quite a while. And this week was a real challenge in the rehearsal department. We had several key people who were unable to make it to rehearsal, with good reasons, so we moved it to early Sunday morning before our services. It was a little nerve-racking, but it worked out fine, and I found that in the end the Lord had His way with it all!

Here is our setlist:

Everlasting God Lincoln Brewster

Blessed Hillsong

How Great Is Our God Chris Tomlin

There Is A Savior Sandi Patti (Special Music Solo)

Made Me Glad Hillsong

I’ll be honest, I was worried about the Sandi Patti song right in the middle of the set, but it worked! Our soloist sang it beautifully, and the whole thing flowed very nicely!

As always, this has been blogged in conjunction with the Sunday Setlist Blog Carnival over at I can’t tell you how invaluable this network of worship leaders has been to my wife, LeAnn and I! If you’re a worship leader, I highly recommend that you jump in to this online movement!

And please leave your comments!

Our worship service went to another level this morning. It was absolutely the most worshipful service I have ever experienced at this church! Praise God! And it was mostly contemporary music, with the exception of the Invitation! That is amazing!

This week, I took the advice of Fred on the song, “Everlasting God”. We structured the song exactly as he suggested, and had Isaiah 40:28-31 read aloud over the congregation. It was an amazing set, folks. Our worship experience through Revelation Song was incredible! I really appreciate the interaction of fellow worship leaders through this medium. What an amazing tool we have in the Lord!

Hope you all experienced God in a mighty way yesterday!
