Knowing Jesus Recap (And What’s Next)

I know I am two weeks behind to give you a “Knowing Jesus” recap, but things have been a tad busy as of late.  In short, the event exceeded my expectations which were very large.  After all the prayer, study, work, and preparation into this event and resource, I set the bar high in my mind.  I never imagined what would happen that night.

I thought the entire roof was about to blow off the building.  When God’s people responded to the revelation of Jesus Christ, it was beyond intense.  As the storyline unfolded as we told the life and ministry of Christ through song, genuine, passionate worship erupted among us.

I had many comments (some of them were very sup rising), and here are the most repeated ones:

Hymns for the Next Generation

I’m still giddy over last week’s worship service.  We released our new hymns album and sang through the entire ambitious project.  A night full of hymns with some pretty special arrangements.

When we started the project, a friend asked me, “Are you worried that if you change up the hymns too much, that some people won’t like them?”  Whenever you are dealing with people’s tastes, you will never please everyone, but my goal was not to please everyone but to unite everyone.

In the culture we are living in, there is a new worship song that bands want to do every week.  The danger is that the next generation will miss some of these wonderful worship songs.  I was worried when we put together an entire night of hymn worship that I was going to lose the younger generation’s attention span.  That’s why the arrangements were so eclectic, it was an attempt to gather all people together.

I didn’t know if it worked until I got home that night and had a Facebook message waiting for me with a teenager who is a worship industry “expert.”  He knows all the latest and greatest out there.  I was shocked by what he said:
