Sometimes simple is nice.
Because sometimes that turns into nearly 16 minutes of worship. And yes, for us, that’s a lot.
Even more, it gives the worship leaders just a little more leeway and comfort within the set to talk, set up a song, engage the crowd, get them smiling, clapping, and maybe a chuckle or two.
It’s not something we always have, since we often have so many different elements within the service (specials, baptisms, special announcements, longer title packages, etc.).
And, to be honest, it’s not something that every worship leader desires. Some WL’s aren’t as comfortable filling extra space or interacting with the crowd as much.
However, our boys today are two of the best at interacting with and engaging the crowd – Todd Fields and the eternally-youthful Danny Dukes.
And with those guys comes a great rock show! Danny is the epitome of classic rock, so we usually pick some of our more rockin’ songs that fit his strengths in that area. (And yes, the players selfishly love that! Shhh – don’t tell!)
Salvation Is Here
God Is Alive
Yeah, a couple familiar songs in there, as well as God Is Alive, one of our newer songs, written by Eddie Kirkland and Steve Fee.
