Community is a big word right now. Supposedly it’s the fresh new thing in churches as people long not to observe, but to participate; not to simply attend but to truly belong. We all know that this is in reality nothing new. It began long ago in Creation, when God the Father said “Let us make people in our image to be like ourselves.” (Genesis 1:26 NLT)
Creating a Culture of Crucial means putting people first. Of course we should always be aware of positions and roles that need to be fulfilled, but we should never see people as a set of skills. People are PEOPLE!

An Explanation and Current Developments
Many questions have surfaced in recent weeks over the actions of the Federal
Communications Commission (FCC) regarding digital television, spectrum
re-allocation, and wireless microphone technology. These actions have an impact on
the current professional wireless microphones. The following information is
published in order to reduce misunderstanding about these issues. [Read more...]
I’ve been running ProPresenter for the better part of the last 7-8 months at Revolution. I figured I’d take a little time to share some thoughts on running it. I believe the grand total of my readers that run ProPresenter – or something similar – total to exactly “0″, so this post should help precisely nobody. Here we go!
Reviewers and Writers Needed!
TheWorshipCommunity.Com has quickly become a place where people are coming to discuss new worship resources, products, CDs, DVDs, and songs. The various record labels, publishers, and indie producers have noticed this and not a week goes by that we don’t receive shipments of CDs, DVDs, and resources. [Read more...]
One time I told a friend’s mother, (who was obviously stressed out about a lot of different things in her life) that Jesus said that we could come to Him and rest, to learn of Him and to take His yoke upon us for His “yoke is easy and His burden is light”. She responded: “That’s for after you die! I don’t want to die yet!”
I love that. Do you see that word “interchange”. That’s huge. Because there is so much responsibility in leadership, it is easy to lose focus that a leader has to be purposeful in relationship. It’s easy to forget that our work is about people, when process takes over.
Soon after encountering Christ for the first time as a young teenager, I eagerly began telling everyone who would listen about my newfound faith. In one conversation as I tried to convince a friend of my brother that Jesus would make a huge positive difference in his life, he gently expressed his doubt about my words. As far as he was concerned, Jesus made no difference at all.
“How can you say that?” I cried in my shock.
I define being prepared as making all of the necessary arrangements in advance that will help the rehearsal, and ultimately the worship service, run as smoothly as possible. Being prepared shows that I respect the time commitment and effort that my team members give me week in and week out. While it’s true that most who are reading this are ministry leaders, we also need to remember that we are servants.
So leaders – serve your team members by respecting their time!
