OUR GOAL IS SIMPLE: to help your child discover the creative ability that God has put into ALL of us…and to direct that ability to the local worship stage. We offer more than a music, dance or art class; instead, we work on stage development, worship arts and instruction, dramatic and arts creativity, and more.

What are YOUR thoughts? Agree or disagree? Is there anything we can do about it…or are we stuck, because it’s what the audience expects?
What’s your thoughts — Does God care? Or is this just a selfish desire of our American Culture?

I remember when the famous iPad was going to be released. It was the big topic with me and my Mac buddies. We couldn’t wait! Of course, none of us could afford it, but it was still fun to dream of the day when we could.
However, knowing I couldn’t really afford or justify the purchase, I bought it anyway (with my wife’s consent, of course). I knew I could always return it within 30 days, only paying the 10% re-stocking fee (it would be worth $50 to have it for a month, at least).
You’ve already guessed it: I never did return that machine. I’m typing this post with it now. I love it! And I must say, every worship leader should own one. However, since pastors always make more money than worship leaders, I suggest that they be the ones to bless their loyal side-kicks. WHY?
1. An iPad is so convenient. Not the best reason, I know, but it’s so handy on a Tuesday night practice, for example, to pull out the iPad to download a quick song for the band, or even watch a YouTube version of the same selection. It’s so convenient to have the Internet, your emailing files, YouTube, any song chart of your dreams…and about anything else to help you become a better worship leader at your fingertips.

First, I need to establish the meaning of a “bad worship set”. The super-spiritual (for lack of a better word) would say it doesn’t exists. And…they’re probably right.

Here’s a few quick tips to remember following a “bad worship set”. Read the rest of this entry
Worship Leaders — here are some of my favorites:
Garage Band. It turns your iPad, iPhone or iPod touch into a collection of Touch Instruments and a full-featured recording studio. At $4.99, this one cost a little more, but it’s worth it. About everything you can do on your Mac laptop, you can do on your handheld device. It keeps my mind busy and creative.
Cleartune Chromatic Tuner. It is a chromatic instrument tuner and pitch pipe that allows you to quickly and accurately tune your instrument using the built-in mic in your iPad, iPhone or using an external mic on your 2nd or 3rd generation iPod Touch. Perfect tuner for the road. Read the rest of this entry
