Here’s a video from this past weekend. We had a ton of fun with this. I won’t say anymore, and let the video speak for itself.

So based on a few of you guys’ comments on last week’s post, we wanted to address the subject of finding musicians in your area that are excited to use their gifts on your team. First, you should check out this older post “Need Players?”. We posted about the process we went through when we were brand new to Charlotte and trying to find excellent musicians for this growing ministry. It details how we’ve approached that very issue from the start.

As far as getting musicians “excited” or interested in playing at your church, here’s a couple of thoughts….

1) Set your standards high for your ministry. Create a culture of excellence. Don’t settle. It’s honoring to God. It’s attractive to people who are far from God. And excellent musicianship and professionalism is attractive to other excellent and professional musicians. It won’t be a “hard sell” to get great players and singers involved with your worship team if there’s skilled dudes and girls there every weekend making it happen!

2) Also, don’t ever underestimate the power of putting compelling vision in front of others. You may be able to snag a few players for a weekend here and there, but unless they’re tied to a larger vision that’s gripping their hearts as to why they should stay there, chances are they won’t. Cast vision. Cast it well. Cast it often.

We’ll continue to tackle your questions as best as we can in the coming weeks. Thanks again for your support and love for advancing his Church!

Kick Start Public Radio

Thursday, January 6th, 2011

Our close friends and fellow Elevation Worship musicians, Jeremy, Luke, and Larry are also in a Charlotte-based band named Public Radio. Are they good? YES. Do they put on an unbelievable show? YES. Does Mark Mathis, the band’s lead singer, write amazing songs? OH YES.

So they’re currently raising support to record their next album – and doing it all via their fans. So we’re asking you to check out their music, watch this video, and throw them a $5, $10, or $100 spot. These new songs need to be heard. And wouldn’t it feel good to be a part of making that happen?

Check out this video and their Kickstarter page to see how the funding works. And enjoy this good music.

Growing Through Evaluation

Thursday, August 12th, 2010

This month we are setting aside time to meet with each player and vocalist on our team individually for a one on one evaluation. We really believe in this process and feel it’s a great way to continue moving forward in excellence. We want to be good stewards of the gifts God has blessed us with, so we feel that a process of evaluating performance, attitude, and growth holds tremendous value as worship leaders and worship musicians.

The process is pretty basic and simple but so effective! We email each person on our team a blank eval document for them to fill out and send back by a particular date. Also, using the same eval document, we as the worship leaders spend time evaluating each person individually. Finally, we meet one on one with each particular person. These meetings are a great way for us to challenge and pour into the guys and girls on our team. Whether it’s your team, your relationship with your spouse, or yourself, taking the time to evaluate growth on any and every level always proves fruitful. And in our ministry, we have seen amazing results from this process!

Here’s a copy of the eval document we use for you to view. Just click to download it, if you so desire.
