Set List – 04/23/17 (Last Sunday with Resonate)

highlights: There wasn't really a "highlight" for this past weekend. The only word that most accurately describes it is "unforgettable." It was my last Sunday as the Music & Worship Arts Director at Emmanuel Faith Community Church, aka the Resonate Worship Leader. Emmanuel Faith has been much more than my place of employment. The people who work…Read more Set List – 04/23/17 (Last Sunday with Resonate)

Set List – 04/16/17 (Easter Sunday)

highlights: Glorious Day is THE Easter song. As I've said before, I'm not a huge fan of holiday specific tunes, but this one is an exception. Easter is a BIG deal for Christians. Had not Jesus died and rose again, we would have no hope (1 Peter 1:3-5). Through Him, we celebrate the hope of…Read more Set List – 04/16/17 (Easter Sunday)

Set List – 04/09/17 (Palm Sunday)

highlights: Hosanna (Praise Is Rising) was hands down the highlight of the morning. We set up the song by reading Matthew 21:6-11. I wanted us to feel the anticipation of our coming King Jesus before singing, similar to how the people at that time might have felt. We closed our eyes together and saw the men, women, boys and girls…Read more Set List – 04/09/17 (Palm Sunday)

Set List – 04/02/17

highlights: Only King Forever is ALWAYS a highlight for me. The song is so anthem-atic (yes, I totally made that word up). The lyrics and feel of the song really energize our church; kind of like how a "we will rock you" chant energizes a crowd at a sports game. The bridge lyrics are probably my favorite in the…Read more Set List – 04/02/17

Set List – 03/19/17

highlights: The bridge of What A Beautiful Name really challenged me this past Sunday. It was one of those morning when things weren't going as planned (which happens more often than not) so I was becoming frustrated. I half-expected our congregation to sympathize with me but when I looked out into the room, I didn't see people really acknowledging me…Read more Set List – 03/19/17

Set List – 02/19/17

highlights: Each time we've sung Jesus Emmanuel has been special and this past weekend was no different. Singing this homegrown song means a lot to me; I feel much more connected to whole congregation. When we wrote it, we had the hearts of our people in mind. The words are meant to encourage them and us as we learn to walk through life with God. The…Read more Set List – 02/19/17

Set List – 01/22/17

highlights: Give Me Faith went OFF. The lyrics seemed to really connect with our people on Sunday morning. I found that the words were especially timely for me in light of the morning's events. Our team had a pretty rough day. Issues kept surfacing from broken instruments and gear to failed expectations in our personal lives. For me as the leader,…Read more Set List – 01/22/17
