Selecting Worship Songs: A Guide for Leaders
Selecting songs for worship is one of the most important things that worship leaders do, because we are formed by the songs we sing. Today, more than ever, worship leaders have a wide range of choices. On what basis will we make our selections? The popularity of the song? The worship leader’s favorite? The request of a parishioner? The hottest worship band on tour? Learn to use the song-selection tool created by three professors: a theologian, a poet, and a musician, to answer these questions and more in Selecting Worship Songs: A Guide for Leaders.
Also available as an e-book!
The Christian faith is a sung faith.
More options for worship songs are available for church leaders today than ever before, meaning that selecting the right worship song is more important - and more difficult - now than ever! Using the worship song selection tool created by three professorial experts in theology, literature, and music, worship leaders can curate the perfect worship set for their congregations.
