My Experience So Far With The @worshipcentral Course

First of all, many thanks to the Worship Central team for compiling and making this course available to everyone.  I can see us running this periodically with each batch of new volunteers.

Our team just completed the second session “Encountering God” on Monday past.

Here are some of my thoughts so far on the course:

  • I love our team getting together outside of rehearsals and Sunday mornings and just getting to know each other better.
  • It is great to worship together in song.  Most other times we are focused on the arrangement, or a vocal part, or whatever.  Not at these sessions.  We just play the song and worship God together.
  • I am loving the discussions that are birthed out of the course material.  It’s really making us think deeply about what we do and why we do it.
  • I love (ok, maybe not ‘love’) being challenged to personalize areas of the talk by sharing a story that will help re-enforce a point.  This stretches me, but also gives my team a glimpse into my heart and vision.
  • Praying together is awesome – not just a prayer at the end, but opening the room up and having our team pray together.

Here are some things I think would make the course even better:

  • Each session of the Worship Central course is overflowing with information, but I think the main talk is a little long.  For future sessions I will be trying to relay the same information in a shorter time.
  • Indications in the notes when to change the slide would be useful (although in fairness, I could probably do it myself if I spent more time prepping!)
  • I know DVDs  for this course are planned.  I think this would be perfect and look forward to seeing (and using) those.
