Whether you're in a band yourself or part of a ministry involved with teams, this book can help you on your journey. For thirty years, musician, songwriter, and worshipper Tom Lane has worked in the Christian worship music industry and alongside churches, ministries, and movements around the world associated with worship. In this collection of articles, Lane encourages honesty and clear communication from all sides while aiming for the right thing - to be a band that worships, first and foremost. Spiritual, relational, professional, and practical issues relevant for individuals and groups in worship ministry of any kind are addressed head on. Historically, bands have helped lead revolutions, crusades, campaigns, churches, rallies, and entire nations. The role bands play in worship, though important, is not the pinnacle of the calling or mandate according to Jesus. While it's okay to have a good rock band and want to go places, many creatively gifted Christians miss the mark entirely and are derailed by their own quests for something other than God. Likewise, worship teams sometimes miss the mark by placing too much emphasis on performance and not enough on relationships. This book will help lay the foundation for a healthier pursuit of creative dreams and a closer walk with God. The book includes a Top 10 Must-Do List for Bands, with quotes from an A-list of musicians and worship leaders, including Paul Baloche, Matt Redman, Tim Hughes, Daniel, Brenton Brown, Vinnie Colaiuta, Carl Albrecht, Mia Fieldes, Kathryn Scott, Lincoln Brewster, and more!
