Aquidneck Island Multi-Church Worship

A few weeks ago I met with some local worship leaders from a few other churches about starting a multi-church worship team. I really believe in the big “C” in church and that unity is really the only way we are going to change the culture in our community. Last week we had our first practice. We have started small and have only told a select few about it just to get something established. In the near future we will be inviting even more churches to jump on board and maybe even springboard into some other things.

Ok back the the practice. God is amazing. This is one talented group of musicians. We have 2 guitars, piano, 2 lead vocals, drums, bass, and sax. Let me tell you this band was tight. We did a few songs that only 1 or 2 of us knew or have even heard and they only took one time to play them because they were amazing.

I am truly floored sometimes at what God can do in us and through us when we actually take up His mission. I am expecting great things here. God has some awesome stuff planned.

Stay tuned for more news, including a facebook fan page, about this band and its hopeful future participation from other area churches. We will be doing worship at this years national day of prayer and I think having a team comprised of musicians from more than one church is really gonna shake things up.

    Joel I’m super stoked about this. This, in my humble opinion, is ground-breaking. My prayers are that this really takes off. Let me know if there is some way I can participate…

    Believe it or not, this is similar to what my band, Saint Lewis, is…I’m the assoc. music guy at our church, our bassist is the youth worship leader at another church, where our lead guitarist is also on part-time staff – our rhythem guy is the youth worship leader for yet another church, and our drummer is part of a new church plant locally!

    p.s. – I put “All in All” up on my virb site JUST FOR YOU (per your request on several months back)…it’s a VERY ROUGH DEMO so I’m only keeping it up for a day…

    This is such a fantastic idea. I’ve been thinking about something along this line for our community.

    Would you mind emailing me with the skinny on how this came about and how you are planning to implement it?

    And yes, I’m working on the follow-ups for you. Expect them today.

    That’s a really cool idea, man. I’ll be interested to see how it turns out, both in the short-term and long-term. Props for trying to unite the Body.
