Creating the blog worked

March 14, 2007 — 3 Comments

So I started with the idea of the www.cecworship.com about a little less than a year ago. My thought was to start a forum and a blog with a resource website for worship leaders of every kind and to unify the worship and equip the music of the CEC ( the Charismatic Episcopal Church), which I am apart of. On top of this I wanted to see original music come out of the CEC that could fuel the vision of the 3 streams worship that we do. Historic, sacramental, and modern all in one setting. And last this would culminate in doing vineyard esque style of CD’s where we have worship leaders from different CEC churches putting together a CD that really reflects the vision of the “house”.

It’s a great idea. I thought it could work…and then I started it and nobody went on the forum…The blog recieved no traffic and there was nothing going on. This became frustrating. In my heart I still knew that God wanted something here. Now all of a sudden people are all over the site from different denominations getting resources for their church and contributingwith there own blogs and comments. This has helped me out a ton also because I can use those on here as my resource.

Then the most amazing thing happened. I started to receive  comments and emails from worship leaders in the CEC who have been waiting for a site like this to come along and they will contribute also.

On top of that I got in the mail the other day a CD from a church Christ the King (CEC) in georgia. It is called “the Bishops Mass”. It is all original music. some liturgical, some modern, some old. and it was a breath of fresh air. I was stoked because this is exactly what I was hoping for. I had never heard of this CD and I imagine many other churches haven’t.

I am excited to Find out there are other churches in the CEC with original music and can’t wait to hear and share more.

The Bishops Mass will be available soon from cecworship.com as a free download with hopeful donation.

In the end I am excited for what the Lord is doing here. I have learned a ton from people like worshipcity, superman, snowjunkie, Rag Soul and now to hear from  some of the other CEC churches as well is a total blessing.

And there it is. the pinnacle of all things good..well at least until 20,000. Thanks for checking out the blog. I really hope it is helping to equip the worship leaders in the country even more.

An audio test

So I wanted to try this mp3 player and I have a jam in a 10 min studio in seattle that my dad, brother and I did. It was done at EMP we had 5 minutes to just jam and it was put on a CD. Hopefully it works and it is a kinda cool groove

So I keep getting people in the church asking me what CD songs came from. After a while this became a chore. So I redid my worship master list and added all of the new songs along with every CD that I got them off.

Take a look at the new list. it’s pretty.

Anything in blue is a Hymn and anything in green is used in liturgical areas (much more to be added)

In my church and demonination I am in charge of the websites, the marketing and all of the inhouse literature. On top of that I handle the tech and media aspect of my church. I am always looking for new ideas on how to use new and innovative technology in service, worship and the web.

Here is a great resource from fellow blogger faithful web 

Here is the top 51 most innovative church list

And of course there is Churchmarketingsucks.com 

Those are some great places to look for what other churches are doing and what is and isnt working
