WHY WorshipLife Podcast with Mike Harland: From the historic B.B. McKinney Studios in Nashville, TN, Mike and Brian introduce WorshipLife.com’s newest addition, WorshipLife Podcast w/ Mike Harland! Together, Mike and Brian, recognize the importance of having conversations with churches… getting churches talking about, learning and observing what God is doing throughout the world. Through this every-other-week podcast, we’ll talk about issues and questions, interact with our listeners, bring encouragement and support and information that will be helpful to Worship Leaders all around the country — all of this to help Worship Leaders live out God’s great commandment, “To love the Lord your God with all your HEART, all your SOUL, and all your MIND.” Matthew 22:37
Summary of The Sound of Silence: Mike and Brian discuss a blog post written by Mike Harland titled, The Sound of Silence. We talk about an unhealthy trend Mike is seeing in many churches today… a “spectator” approach to worship. Mike asks the question, “Could it be that with the demise of student and children’s choirs over the past few decades, we now have congregations of adults that never learned why and how to sing?” Together, they talk through several thought processes on what it means to help children and students find their voice and have the confidence to become active worshippers.
HOST: Mike is the Director of LifeWay Worship Resources. Otherwise known as our Head Coach. Mike has an amazing, God-given passion for Worship! When he’s not directing 30+ employees or working with some of the best Christian writers/arrangers, you’ll find him leading worship in various churches around the country. You might also find him writing/arranging songs, or helping disciple the next generation of worship leader. In his, few and far between, spare moments, you’ll find him writing his next book, playing basketball, or spending time with his family. Did you know he learned most of what he knows about ministry on football and baseball teams? Mike is LifeWay Worship’s very own Music Minister/Worship Pastors. The titles are never ending.
