As a worship leader, one of the things that I am always trying to do is figure out how to better introduce new songs to our church. Well, with this week’s post I am going to try a new method. Each month the worship team practices/learns/rehearses a new song to introduce to the church the following month. For example, this past Sunday the worship team introduced “Your Love Never Fails” by Jesus Culture for the first time after spending the month of July learning it. I think people liked it and I know that a lot of people were already familiar with it because the Newsboys version of the song was popular on Christian radio for a while.
This month we are going to be learning a song called “Spirit of the Living God” by Vertical Church Band. They are oneof my favorite worship groups and are the worship team at Harvest Bible Chapel in Chicago. This is a powerful new song of theirs and I really believe that our church is going to love it. But, unlike “Your Love Never Fails”, this song isn’t on Christian radio. So, hopefully, introducing it here first will help those who follow our blog become familiar with it before we introduce it next month (September).
