Just a little thank you for this new milestone. I really hope this site is blessing you readers and new found blogging friends. I know it’s blessed me a ton.


Ok don’t run for the hills…and yes this still is joel’s blog, but Vicky Beeching is not on this weeks list. AHHHHHHHH..  Enjoy…
What about you?

1. Hymns – Chris Oor & Matt Papa * What an amazing CD. I ordered this one and his solo CD also…wow

2. Celtic Worship – Live from Ireland – Doerkson, Mark, Heaslip * I haven’t been on the celtic train in a long time…What a way to come back. Great worship

3. Everybreath You Take (the classics) – The Police * You can’t go wrong with Sting

4. Holding Nothing Back – Tim Hughes * I got this the other day…fantastic…Ill have a review up soon

5. In a Word – Yes (5 disk box set) * All time greatest band. Steve Howe is a genius

I thought Id post today the format for our service. It really shows how we meld in the CEC ancient and modern. This is the sheet I use when I put together my set list. It didn’t align wuite right in the post but its still readable.

As always Worship leaders post your set lists or a link to where we can find your set list.

This weeks service was great. opened with chorus from here is our king into raise up the crown. We had fun with introducing undignified and took it to let the praises ring with my arrangement of it. (doh…ive gotta post that). Going into amazing grace was awesome..we actually started with the chorus. HA HA HA I got stuck singing the verses sometimes the original way and 2 times tomlin way. I introduced vicky beechings above all else. Communion worship was great going into baloche offering. What a great song that is. And then we ended with an amped up version of blessed be your name. That was wicked fun. It was an all acoustic day. I played blessed be your name with capo on 2 in g formation.

Most of you have seen my master list, which will be getting an update in the next week, and if you haven’t…download it. I made that after watching a worship leader video with Paul Baloche and it has become and invaluable resource to me in my weekly planning.

If you have downloaded it and are using it or some form of it I would love to know. 

I do however have a few problems that I would like some feedback on:

  1. Ive got at least 400 CD’s and I am constantly learning new music for church. The problem is carrying around that many CD’s. How many of you are using Ipod’s to organize the music you are using in church?
  2. I have about 200 songs in my master list…more are being learned everyday the list is updated with new songs all the time and songs are taken off the list. The issue is with all the sheet music I have. Yes they are in binders and then they get messed up and stolen. lol. I’ve been thinking about taking every song I have and putting them into a large word file or pdf. that I can have on my laptop. There are foot switches for PDf page transition where it will turn pages and your laptop becomes your sheet music in church. There is also a digital music stand but that is pricey. I just have to figure something out cus that song book is getting heavy. What are you guys doing?
  3. My worship team is very dedicated but 95% of them dont listen to the music we do and don’t buy the CD’s. I know there are legal issues with giving people music, but I need them to learn them and can’t afford to buy 8 licenses for every song I own. What are you guys doing? are you putting them online on a private website?

I now have Conferences listed on the blog. Right now what is on there is primarily worship conferences. I will be adding more as I find them including student, pastor, emerging/postmodern worship and marketing conferences for the church. Check back often and post if you know of some that aren’t on there so I can add them.
