I recently finished filming some songs for Impact TV at Foxtel studios and I am now working on a worship retreat for a church.
As corny as it sounds it is such a privilege to be invited into a community and to walk along beside them for a while.
The retreat is called “Essence” and we will be going back to the basics of the essence of worship. We often spend so much time and money looking at the forms of worship and get so distracted that we drift away from the essence of worship and wonder why it falls in a heap.
It is important to help equip and train and support people developing their skills in ministry, but if the central focus on the essence of worship is absent, then something is wrong.
I have never seen a ministry area cause so much conflict or bring so much unity as the music team in a church! I pray that as I work with different teams from around the traps that I will always keep coming back to the essence of it all-Jesus.
