As pastors and worship team members, we have many decisions to make each week in preparation for congregational worship. In this seminar, we'll consider some of the primary values that inform what we do when we gather: the primary themes that occupy our attention, the liturgical elements, and the heart attitudes we want to display. These seven values, though not exhaustive, have served as a core curriculum for worship team ministry at The Church at Brook Hills.

What happens when two very different musical cultures (white and African-American) gather around the gospel? How do we learn from and serve one another? What are the potential pitfalls and opportunities? Listen in on this conversation between four friends who are learning the answers to those questions while recording an album together.

Leaders and musicians spend multiple hours, even days preparing for a Sunday morning or an event that is meant to lead people in worshiping God in song. But when the time comes, it often ends up being more a crowd watching a performance than a congregation participating in worship. How do we prepare for a worship service in a way that leads to people being engaged with God, encountering the glory of Christ, and experiencing the presence of his Spirit?…

Sometimes Christians emphasize public devotion to the exclusion or neglect of personal devotion. Others minimize gatherings of the church and focus on how we relate to God individually. But God is concerned about the vitality of both, as well as how they relate to each other. In this seminar, you'll be equipped and challenged to practice in private what you proclaim in public.

Faithful preaching pastors rightly give significant time and attention to their sermon preparation. But too often, they minimize what happens in the rest of the meeting, forgetting that every part of our services is an opportunity to shepherd God's people through Scripture and the gospel. In this seminar, you'll hear from a pastor who is learning to embrace his responsibility for the entire Sunday gathering and is benefiting as a result.

Musicians in our culture often focus on the performing well, creating emotional experiences, and gaining favor from their fans. As leaders in the church, our focus couldn’t be more different. This seminar will explain how the songs we choose and the words we say on Sunday are one way we can care for those God has placed in our church.

Recent years have seen a spate of "gospel" books--defining the gospel, discussing the gospel, applying the gospel--which is all to the good. However, it's possible to discuss and celebrate the gospel without allowing it genuinely to shape our lives, our homes, and our ministries. How can we keep the gospel from being merely a slogan? This seminar will explore such issues and seek to equip us all to place the gospel at the centre of everything.

Is your church and worship team a place of encouragement and refreshment? Or is it a place of criticism, irritation, jealousy, gossip, and selfish ambition? It is not sufficient to sing a message of grace; we must also strive to create a culture of grace with our lives. Leaders bear unique responsibility to set an example in seeing and celebrating God’s activity in others. This seminar provides practical help for deepening and spreading an experience of grace in all of…
