A guide for church musicians.
- Go for a full sound, lots of volume, lots of rhythm, full bass, crisp percussion; set it against a designed stage background with quality lighting, with lots of motion on stage by the singers and instrumentalists; choose favorite well-known songs; get the audience clapping and shouting and have the team leader constantly encouraging the audience to sing out loud. Aim for excellence, energy, emotion.
- With each singer and musician giving the best they can give, aim to create something that can only be called beautiful, because it is a foretaste of the worship that takes place in heaven now; worship which we will someday join in. Aim for transcendence, for beauty, for richness, for adoration.
