    Thank you, Dan. It’s a beautiful examination. May the Lord continue to work in your life to encourage, exhort, teach and admonish members of this community of worship ministers. What a blessing it would be if every member hear these words.

    That was a very touching video and it has really opened my eyes. Thank you and god bless you

  3. Dan, this is so good – should be a pre-requisite to access the other courses!

  4. Wow. I’ve never looked at the role of a sound tech through those glasses, thanks.

  5. I have most recently examined my life, my purpose and my intentions for doing everything I do. I have had to cut out things, repent for doing things for selfish gain and also refine my heart towards God. I have never felt so liberated and free in Christ. I determine in my heart to do things for the Glory of God. After all, only things done for and In Christ’s name will remain….everything else is futile.

  6. An imperative, and often overlooked, aspect of service. God’s timing is impeccable. I’ve reached about seven years heading up the sound ministry, and He’s now placing people in new roles. Just as the sound board is exchanging hands, I’m assured in knowing that all things are only for a season. Now it’s time to let someone else be blessed with the role I once held. I’m excited to see where God will bring me next so that I may better serve Him.

  7. Wonderful. Thank you!

  8. Thanks so much for your transparency Dan! This was a very inspiring from the heart message. I Love the aspect of reference to humility! You are a great example to me as a seasoned worship leader, musician, pastor, teacher… Friend!

    Thank you very much, this really made me think about my role and why I do it.

  10. I appreciate how you have the total picture in mind. Some people are asked to “step up” by God, others are asked to do other things for a while. God knows the next step for our growth in Him. We need to have humility, like a child. Life is a lot more fun that way, because then we are in company with Jesus, then He’s right beside us. Thank you Dan!

  11. I am excited to share this to our worship team. It is great to have materials like- inspiring especially coming from Worship leaders who has taken years of this journey. God has given us a wonderful journey ahead and everybody can experience it as we allow God to take full control.

  12. Expresses my passion and conviction perfectly! Excellent article. The highest call we have been given as sons and daughters of God is that we are Servants of God in Christ as well. Thank you so much!

  13. I remember your sharing “It’s not because of what you do, but because of who you are” years ago at a Vineyard conference in Michigan not long after I had begun leading worship. That became a significant connection point between my daughter and myself – which she’s heard almost daily since she was born – 19 years ago. Key!

  14. We are just planning a worship weekend for the last week in September and I think we might use this video. Thanks so much Dan!

  15. Thank you. I want to listen to this again and again and will encourage all our church worship ministry teams to do the same. And may God prepare us as we listen to be ready to serve him, to his glory, Amen!

  16. Always a good lesson to us all. :)

  17. That was amazing. Thank you for that.
