Free Friday! In Real Time

Free Book Friday for Bible Software

A common misconception is that the leader brings the worship, that I can go find somebody who will bring worship to a congregation. That’s dead wrong. You cannot conjure up worship. The individual brings it. Worship is the response of a living person to the living God. The worship leader can provide the moment. He can provide the tools, the structure to give me a good place to express my response to God, but he doesn’t bring the worship into the room.

Happy Friday everyone! Today’s free download, usually $12.95, is In Real Time: Authentic Young Adult Ministry As It Happens.
