Spontaneous Song

Margaret Graham

As worship leaders we are passionate about leading our communities in authentic expressions of worship. For many of us that passion includes a desire to create space during our worship gathering for Holy Spirit to move though spontaneous Spirit-led moments. These God moments will always be encouraging, gracious and uplifting; and will often include spontaneous songs, bible verses, brief God stories, prayer for personal needs and life-giving words to individuals. Join Margaret has she shares her heart for leading people of all ages and all church backgrounds into deeper, more meaningful experiences with God, and gives practical tools and skills you can develop, to grow in leading this expression of worship.

The Prophetic in Worship

Jeremy Weedman, Here Be Lions

What does it mean to be Prophetic in Worship? We hear that phrase a lot, right next to being "spontaneous" and "authentic". These are all great things for us to consider! But sometimes we make it so spiritual, that you're left on your own to figure out what it looks like in practice. The prophetic is a gift, not in the sense that only a few chosen people can do it, but in the sense that it's a gift to the people of God. The truth is, if you're not experiencing the prophetic in worship, you're missing out. The prophetic was given to us by God, to build up His Church, and if it's a gift, we might as well receive it and do it together!

Worship Languages

Jeff Watt, RockPointe Church

When you think of worship, do you think of singing? Similar to how Love Languages describe how we best love those closest to us, Worship Languages describe how we best connect to God. By understanding these nine languages, you can propel yourself and your congregation into creative and multi-faceted expressions of worship that even your non-singers will find meaningful!
