Where are we at as a worship culture, what encouraging trends is he seeing, what concerns him, and what advice does he have for worship leaders as we stewart our calling well? This episode is less of a training and more of an encouragement and exhortation from a wiser, older brother.

6 Ways To Utilize Your Acoustic Guitar To Its Full Potential
<p class="selectionShareable"><img src= "https://assets.libsyn.com/secure/show/59294/Utilizing_Your_Acoustic_Guitar_To_Its_Full_Potential_In_Worship.jpg" alt="" width="500" height="250" /></p> <p class="selectionShareable">Your acoustic guitar is an incredibly powerful tool. Its melodic and percussive nature allows you to create lots of energy and dynamic if utilized properly. Unfortunately, many worship leaders are under-utilizing this versatile instrument because they have never been taught a handful of simple techniques that can take your acoustic guitar playing to the next level. Whether you lead alone (just you and your acoustic guitar), or you have a worship band, using the six techniques outlined in this episode will help you grow as an acoustic player and better utilize this incredible instrument for God’s glory.</p> <p class="selectionShareable">The first half of this episode is a playthrough of a popular worship song <strong>(5:00 – 14:43)</strong>, demonstrating the techniques in action. The second half is an overview and explanation of each technique in detail <strong>(14:45 – End)</strong>. Feel free to skip to whichever part you'll find most helpful. And don't forget to listen at "normal speed" on your podcast app! </p> <p class="selectionShareable"><a href="http://bit.ly/2yoYeOs" target="_blank" rel="noopener"><strong>WATCH THE VIDEO VERSION OF THIS LESSON</strong></a></p> <p class="selectionShareable"><a href= "http://traffic.libsyn.com/worshipteamtraining/Utilizing_Your_Acoustic_Guitar_To_Its_Full_Potential_In_Worship.mp3" target="_blank" rel="noopener"><strong>Direct Download</strong></a></p> <h2><strong>RESOURCES MENTIONED:</strong></h2> <p class="selectionShareable"><a href="http://bit.ly/2gLi9A4" target="_blank" rel="noopener"><strong>Capo Cheat Sheet</strong></a></p> <p class="selectionShareable"><a href="http://bit.ly/2gLi9A4" target="_blank" rel="noopener"><strong>Chord Family Cheat Sheet (Nashville Numbers System)</strong></a></p> <p class="selectionShareable"><a href="http://bit.ly/2xMREkJ" target="_blank" rel="noopener"><strong>Using Vocal Cues to Help Your Church Sing</strong></a></p> <p class="selectionShareable"><a href= "https://www.guitarlessons.com/guitar-lessons/guitar-lessons-for-beginners/5-essential-strumming-patterns" target="_blank" rel="noopener"><strong>Strumming Patterns</strong></a></p> <div class="fluid-width-video-wrapper"><iframe id="fitvid0" src= "https://www.youtube.com/embed/15fFYg99jQY?rel=0&amp;wmode=opaque&amp;wmode=opaque" name="fitvid0" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen= "allowfullscreen"></iframe></div> <hr /> <h2><strong>I'D LOVE TO HEAR FROM YOU! </strong></h2> <p class="selectionShareable"><strong><a href= "http://tinyurl.com/ycdk2rbq" target="_blank" rel="noopener">EMAIL ME</a> </strong>your thoughts on this episode or <strong>ASK A QUESTION</strong> that you’d like us to answer on a future episode by calling <strong><a href= "tel:+1-831-607-9581">+1-831-607-WLT1</a></strong></p> <p class="selectionShareable"><strong>Say hi </strong>on <a href= "http://bit.ly/2xwoKWz"><strong>TWITTER</strong></a>, <a href= "http://bit.ly/2wmzgPT"><strong>INSTAGRAM</strong></a>, or<strong> <a href= "http://bit.ly/2wHAF6k">FACEBOOK</a></strong></p> <h2>SHARE:</h2> <p class="selectionShareable"><strong><a href= "http://tinyurl.com/y9nw737u" target="_blank" rel="noopener">EMAIL TO A FRIEND</a><br /> <a href="http://ctt.ec/2ir0X" target="_blank" rel="noopener">TWEET THIS EPISODE</a><br /> <a href= "https://www.facebook.com/sharer/sharer.php?u=http%3A//worshipministrytraining.com/utilizing-your-acoustic-guitar-to-its-full-potential" target="_blank" rel="noopener">SHARE THIS EPISODE ON FACEBOOK</a></strong> </p> <p class="selectionShareable"> </p> <p class="selectionShareable"><strong>Our Sponsor This Month</strong> – <strong><a href="http://bit.ly/2hmIODN" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Alclair Audio In-Ear Monitors</a></strong></p> <p class="selectionShareable"><a href="http://bit.ly/2hmIODN" target="_blank" rel="noopener"><strong>Alclair Audio</strong></a>'s in-ear monitors are some of the best sounding in-ear monitors available at <em>very</em> affordable prices.

Recovering The Lost Art of Congregational Singing w/ Keith Getty
<p class="selectionShareable"><img src= "https://assets.libsyn.com/secure/show/59294/Keith_Getty_-_Congregational_Singing_2.jpg" alt="" width="466" height="233" /></p> <p class="selectionShareable">As many churches try to replicate stadium-style worship concerts in their weekly gatherings, the art of congregational singing is declining. Participation from congregants is down and what was supposed to be a participatory event has turned into passive observers watching leaders dance around a technicolor stage. But Keith and Kristen Getty are on a mission to revitalize congregational singing in churches across the globe. Today I talk with the prolific, modern day hymn-writer, Keith Getty about why congregational singing matters, why it’s in decline and how we can encourage more of it in our churches.</p> <p class="selectionShareable">Find out more about <a href= "http://gettymusic.com/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener"><strong>Keith and Kristen Getty</strong></a> or the <a href="https://www.gettymusicworshipconference.com/#sing-home" target="_blank" rel="noopener"><strong>Sing!

Using Vocal Cues to Help Your Church Sing

We are facilitators of the congregational choir. One way we can help facilitate is by using “vocal cues”. Vocal cues are the things you say or sing to help your congregation know where you’re going next in a song.</p> <p class="selectionShareable">Today’s episode feels less like a lecture, and more like you’re sitting across from me in my office with our guitars, working through some real-life examples of using vocal cues well. You’ll hear about how to sing them, say them, proper timing, tone, non-verbal cues and more.

Not just among the congregants, but also among staff and pastors. How many great and influential pastors have fallen into sexual or emotional affairs in the last several years? If infidelity can happen to them, it can happen to us. We must be diligent to guard our hearts and our interactions with the opposite sex. Dr. Zack Carter joins us to talk about setting up wise boundaries with the opposite sex in ministry. Dr. Carter is a researcher and professor at Taylor University and has studied hundreds of affairs. He teaches on marital preservation, attraction, and non-verbal and online communication with the opposite sex. If you are serious about being faithful to your ministry and your spouse for the long haul, you would be wise to listen to this important episode.</p> <p>More content at: <strong><a href= "http://worshipministrytraining.com" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">worshipministrytraining.com</a></strong></p> <p><br /> <a href= "http://traffic.libsyn.com/worshipteamtraining/Wise_Boundaries_with_the_Opposite_Sex_in_Ministry_w_Dr_Zack_Carter_Part_1_of_2.mp3" target="_blank" rel="noopener"><strong>Direct Download</strong></a> </p> <p> </p> <hr /> <h2><strong>I'D LOVE TO HEAR FROM YOU! </strong></h2> <p><strong><a href="http://tinyurl.com/j9lv4ns" target="_blank" rel="noopener">EMAIL ME</a> </strong>your thoughts on this episode or <strong>ASK A QUESTION</strong> that you’d like us to feature on a future episode by calling <strong><a href="tel:1-831-607-9581" target="_blank" rel="noopener">1-831-607-9581</a></strong></p> <p><strong>Say hi </strong>on <a href= "http://bit.ly/2xwoKWz"><strong>TWITTER</strong></a>, <a href= "http://bit.ly/2wmzgPT"><strong>INSTAGRAM</strong></a>, or<strong> <a href= "http://bit.ly/2wHAF6k">FACEBOOK</a></strong></p> <p> </p> <h2>SHARE:</h2> <p><strong><a href="http://tinyurl.com/gv76kup" target="_blank" rel="noopener">EMAIL THIS TO A FRIEND<br /></a><a href= "http://ctt.ec/08KZ9" target="_blank" rel="noopener">TWEET THIS EPISODE</a><br /> <a href= "https://www.facebook.com/sharer/sharer.php?u=http%3A//worshipleadertraining.com/wise-boundaries-with-the-opposite-sex-in-ministry-w-dr-zack-carter" target="_blank" rel="noopener">SHARE THIS EPISODE ON FACEBOOK</a></strong></p> <p> </p> <h2>QUOTABLES:</h2> <hr /> <p>When you admit that you’re capable of having an affair, that’s when you can actually protect yourself. <em> <a href= "http://ctt.ec/ZMwf5" target="_blank" rel="noopener">– Tweet That!</a></em></p> <p>Our spouse should get the best of us, and everyone else should get the rest of us.  <a href="http://ctt.ec/59yrm" target= "_blank" rel="noopener"><em>– Tweet That!</em></a></p> <p>The church is a holy place, but it’s prideful to say that we can’t fall into sin there. <a href="http://ctt.ec/dfUd8" target="_blank" rel="noopener"><em>– Tweet That!</em></a></p> <p>There will always be a disconnect between you and your spouse until you can disconnect from the sin you are in. <a href= "http://ctt.ec/v49bU" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">– <em>Tweet That!</em></a></p> <p><strong> </strong></p> <p><strong>Our Sponsor This Month</strong> – <strong><a href= "http://bit.ly/2hMxIrl">Planning Center</a></strong></p> <p><a href="http://bit.ly/2hMxIrl" target="_blank" rel= "noopener"><img class="alignnone size-full wp-image-2061" src= "http://worshipleadertraining.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/12/Screen-Shot-2016-12-19-at-11.38.33-AM.png" alt="Planning Center Sponsor Worship Leader Training" width="204" height="66" /></a></p> <p>Planning Center is the ultimate tool for scheduling teams, planning worship services, selecting song sets, communicating with team members, hosting chord charts and mp3's and <em><strong>so</strong></em> much more!  Sign up and get 30 days free at <strong><a href="http://bit.ly/2hMxIrl" target= "_blank" rel="noopener">planning.center</a> </strong></p> <hr /> <p><em><br /> Enjoy the podcast?

We have only seventy minutes on Sundays to communicate to our congregants the things we feel are vital for them to know. We must think strategically and purposefully about every element of communication in our worship services: pre-service slides, announcements, prayers, lyric slides, videos and more. Brady Shearer, founder of Pro Church Tools, joins us today to help us improve our announcements and maximize our communication during our Sunday worship gatherings. If you play any part in planning Sunday worship services, or care about having an effective communication strategy at your church, this episode is for you.</p> <p><strong>Follow Brady Online:</strong><br /> <strong><a href="http://prochurchtools.com" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Pro Church Tools</a></strong><br /> <strong><a href="https://twitter.com/bradyshearer" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Twitter</a></strong><br /> <strong><a href="https://www.instagram.com/bradyshearer/" target= "_blank" rel="noopener">Instagram</a></strong><br /> <strong><a href="https://www.snapchat.com/add/bradyshearer1" target="_blank" rel="noopener">SnapChat</a></strong></p> <p><strong>Follow Us </strong>on <a href= "http://bit.ly/2xwoKWz"><strong>TWITTER</strong></a>, <a href= "http://bit.ly/2wmzgPT"><strong>INSTAGRAM</strong></a>, or<strong> <a href= "http://bit.ly/2wHAF6k">FACEBOOK</a></strong></p> <p><strong><a href= "http://traffic.libsyn.com/worshipteamtraining/Improving_Announcements_and_Communication_For_Our_Church_Services.mp3" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Direct Download</a><a href= "http://bit.ly/WLTPodcast" target="_blank" rel="noopener"><br /> Link to iTunes</a></strong></p> <p><strong>I'd love to hear from you!<br /></strong><strong><a href="mailto:alex@worshipleadertraining.com" target="_blank" rel="noopener">EMAIL ME</a> </strong>your thoughts on this episode or <strong><a href= "http://bit.ly/2d2rEcP">ASK A QUESTION</a></strong> that you'd like us to feature on a future episode <em>(this is a voice recording)</em>.</p> <p><strong>Say hi </strong>on <a href= "http://bit.ly/2xwoKWz"><strong>TWITTER</strong></a>, <a href= "http://bit.ly/2wmzgPT"><strong>INSTAGRAM</strong></a>, or<strong> <a href= "http://bit.ly/2wHAF6k">FACEBOOK</a></strong></p> <h1>Resources:</h1> <p><a href="http://canva.com" target="_blank" rel= "noopener"><strong>Canva</strong></a><br /> <strong><a href="http://thenounproject.com" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">The Noun Project</a></strong><br /> <strong><a href= "https://prochurchtools.com/10-beautiful-church-graphics-inspiration/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Church Graphics Examples</a><br /> <a href="http://churchgraphicshandbook.com/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Church Graphics Handbook<br /></a><a href= "http://bit.ly/2gX5Csz" target="_blank" rel="noopener"><strong>7 Practical Ways to Improve Your Church's Announcements</strong></a><a href= "http://churchgraphicshandbook.com/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener"><br /></a></strong></p> <h1>Quotables:</h1> <hr /> <p>"People don’t remember information, they remember inspiration.”  <a href="http://ctt.ec/GWcOE" target="_blank" rel= "noopener"><em>- Tweet That!</em></a></p> <p>In communication, the more that you add, the less effective it becomes. <a href="http://ctt.ec/3gfVc" target="_blank" rel= "noopener"><em>- Tweet That!</em></a></p> <p>Attention is the most valuable commodity you can earn from your congregation. <a href="http://ctt.ec/6Juab" target="_blank" rel= "noopener"><em>- Tweet That!</em></a></p> <p> </p> <p><strong>Our Sponsor This Month</strong> – <a href= "http://bit.ly/2uJQSYL" target="_blank" rel= "noopener"><strong>Coresound Pads</strong></a></p> <p><img class="alignnone wp-image-1192 size-full" src= "http://worshipleadertraining.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/10/Coresound-Pads-Logo.png" alt="Coresound Pads Logo" width="250" height="69" /></p> <p>Add rich, beautiful ambient sounds to your mix in three simple steps.

In this episode, I give 5 questions that you should ask before introducing that new song, as well as a few tips for the song curation and introduction process.

Many musicians have a bad rap for being lazy and disorganized, but this should NOT be the case in the Church! David is the host of the well-known <strong><a href= "https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/beyond-sunday-worship-leader/id627213933" target="_blank">“Beyond Sunday Podcast”</a></strong> (a podcast for worship leaders that you should DEFINITELY be listening to), as well as an author, blogger, worship leader, songwriter, album producer, music instructor and family man! So David clearly knows a lot about time management and productivity!<br /> <br /></span> <span style="font-size: 10pt;">In this episode we talk about why organization and productivity matter for Worship Leaders, how to set goals, the difference between consumers and creators, fighting distraction and staying focused, tips and tools for being efficient with your tasks and time, keeping people and God first while chasing God-sized dreams, and keeping your motives pure while you seek to do something BIG for the kingdom of God.

Humility, Brokenness and Authenticity As A Leader
<div> <div class="wsite-image wsite-image-border-thin"><span style= "font-size: 10pt;"><a><img src= "http://www.alexonmusic.com/uploads/6/8/8/9/6889138/glass_1.jpg?727" alt="Picture" width="437" height="98" /></a></span> <div><span style="font-size: 10pt;"> </span></div> </div> </div> <div class="paragraph"><span style="font-size: 10pt;">What does God desire in our worship and worship leading? One word: <strong>BROKENNESS</strong>. <em>"You will not delight in sacrifice, or I would give it; you will not be pleased with a burnt offering. The sacrifices of God are a <u>broken spirit</u>; a broken and contrite heart, O God, you will not despise."  - Psalm 51:16-17<br /> <br /></em></span> <span style="font-size: 10pt;">In our worship and worship leading, God desires us to be humble, dependent, reliant, weak and broken. This is very opposed to what we find in the church today. Church / Worship Leaders are bold, self-reliant, have all the answers, and are on a mission to change the world. But are we fooling ourselves? Today we talk with our friend Sam Salerno about embracing, even boasting in, our brokenness, weakness and dependance on God. No self-righteousness allowed.

Then it's time to start arranging and playing in "parts".

Music is meant to be so much more than just playing the chords on your chord charts!
