"Leading Worship Matters: A Sourcebook for Preparing Worship Leaders" is a comprehensive guide with practical, succinct, easy-to-use tools and resources to support, plan, execute, and evaluate lay worship leadership development. More than 30 contributors have provided helps and training materials for assisting ministers, readers, intercessors, acolytes, ushers, greeters, communion ministers, altar guild, tech ministers, musicians, children's sermon ministers, and those who care for the worship space. Practical help and support is also provided for both new and seasoned worship leaders through a reproducible library of helpful topics.
"Leading Worship Matters" is a valuable resource for congregations that want to prepare their worship leaders for a ministry—not just a task—and that want to renew their worship life and deepen their understanding of worship as mission. Includes a CD-ROM and DVD.
The DVD's short video segments included here on YouTube feature real lay worship leaders reflecting on why they serve in particular roles. They provide starting points for conversation and consideration of local practice, and can be used to promote and support local training opportunities.
The Making Sense Series has been developed to help guide participants through the tough questions around the Bible and faith. Written by David J. Lose, these courses invite participants to ask questions, and then to dialogue, reflect, share in a group setting. Each course features a practical leader guide, engaging participant book, and provocative session DVD to help spur the conversation.
Whether you are looking for a foundational course to start your conversation or looking to dig deeper into Scripture, these resources feature thought-provoking, engaging, and helpful formats that will help you get started, or continue to grow the Book of Faith Initiative in your congregation.
