Archives For magazine

A few months ago Alastair over at Live To Worship asked the blog world a few questions –

How do you guys rate Worship Leader Magazine?  Do you think it is worth subscribing to?  What are the enhanced song CDs like?  How many songs are on each CD?

A few of us answered and the responses were.. well.. less than stellar. Hop over to the site and check the comments. You’ll see that the folks at Worship Leader Magazine found Alastair’s post and our comments and decided to respond –

Hey Guys,
Great feedback. Thanks! I will share this with our Song Discovery Editor who listens to about 1000 songs every listening cycle to get down to the final 30 or so that go to the Board. To dispel any concern regarding getting on the CD, no one vote (including my own) can sway a panel, nobody can vote on any song which comes out of their own church or they have any bias, and the board switches every month – including often moving from regions throughout the US. We work hard to make sure the magazine are both must reads and must listens, but welcome any and all of your input to make it better for our readers and for those who are ready to give us a shot (or another shot). I would love to hear from any of you directly on specific feedback just so we can improve – our primary goal is to equip the churches we serve (approximately 45,000) so we want to be in touch!!!!
Thank you all.

So I’ll ask the questions as well. How do you rate the magazine? Do you read it? Find it helpful? I have my thoughts and I will save them for part 2 of this, but Post your comments and let’s see if we can put some thoughts together for the folks at WLM.
