I've decided to take up blogging, which these days is a lot like saying "I've decided to continue breathing," so I think it is important to spell out what will make my efforts worth reading. Because I am a big fan of lists and logical order, here are my objectives:
1. As co-contemporary-worship-leader at Hope Presbyterian in Richfield (yes, that is my official title), to let the people of Hope Church better understand better how I seek to lead us in Worship as a part of our Sunday morning contemporary service.
2. To provide a forum for introducing new songs before Sunday mornings. That is to say, if you read my blog, you can spend less time learning and more time worshiping.
3. To expound upon the technical aspects of worship leading. I love my guitars. I love gear. I work with the soundboard and power point. I hope to help anyone interested in these things learn how they are integrated into the worship experience. I also hope to provide plenty of humorous material for those who know way more than I do about these things.
4. To provide a place for constructive dialogue about worship. Whether you have a song request, ideas for a more compelling worship experience, or a complaint about how bad I am at my job, you can stop by and drop a comment. If you don't attend Hope, feel free to stop by and bounce some ideas. Just be polite, or I will retreat to the corner and hide in my shell.
If you are reading this, you are my intended audience, so please stop back often.
