COVID Hitting Domestic Workers Hardest

"Domestic workers globally have been among the hardest hit by the covid crisis. Losing more jobs and working out and other sectors the un labor agency iro said on tuesday ilo director-general guy. Ryder insisted that despite real progress in labor laws and social security provision in some countries in the last decade these essential service providers had rarely been so vulnerable in many others. New ireland data shows the number of domestic workers in the second quarter of twenty twenty fell twenty five to fifty percent in most latin american and caribbean countries and by seventy percent in peru compared with pre pandemic levels countries need to take action because eight and ten domestic workers are informally employed and therefore lack legal and welfare protection. The idaho chief said many domestic workers and migrant workers so their status inside. The country can be called into question if they lose that job. Menu domestic workers live in employees. They could lose that lodgings where they live if they lose their job as well so behind the aggregated numbers. I think there is a sort of a deep. A human impact which accentuates even more the suffering involved in the late marketing impact of the covid nineteen pandemic

Oversee the quality of guests he could bring on secondly an acceptance in the industry that neither grant or iheart vitamin bit involved in the industry of been in the sticks for a long time. No sorts nobody really knew me then. It started kicking off and then we've got different products which is one of the things of learn a little bit coming back to give people exactly what they want has got his thing which is a little bit like desert island discs for for sports stars grant and i do go on goal which is just pop chart between two blocks. I think people connect with that and they think is quite an approachable guy of you whom we have to on a cd face and we get good gas for that. And why phoned is that people want to hang out with other people of being so we got jet cards and on and then all of a sudden we law requests for other people to come on and hang with that same crew.

Understanding User Intent with Openstream's Raj Tumuluri

"We're trying to see how we can understand what the users to intent our goal is as opposed to just literally following what. The user is asking the guessing point. Let's take the case of a health insurance company offering this this kind of an assistant what you tend to their members so the member could could be interested in knowing whether there are are there any court centers nearby so the literal answer for that would be yes that off a note that should really satisfy the constraint and maybe a slightly better You know what would say. They're not three which three geico does nearby ensure them probably on the map but nothing beyond that but if you go beyond that in understand true goal of the end user as to why they asked this question what we call as goal based i log model so optique scientists is actually dr phil cohen. Since you mentioned city he was the original one that that helped write the city from with adam shot and he is so out of bag on the foundation so strong in that space so we are on to the next level which is goal based dialogue engine. So when you ask this question so we kind of understand the plan of the user. The battle of the user is not to merely know Percents nearby but rather like to probably go there and get tested so when that is the case you have to be a good watch losses to insured basically understand okay to find out which ones are closest and then try to find out more information about them whether the renew obstacles in executing the plan of the end user for example if the it could simply say that there are three close by the nearest one is one way but that doesn't have any appointments but the next one these twenty minutes a day and that take walk ins. Shall i get actions for that. And that would be a really powerful thing and this you should be able to do the script fashion. We are not playing to cord and like most other people do are just follow Prompts so that this has an approach and then when you apply that to since pledged up on the insurance domain the policy documents other things tend to be really complex and they're kind of Oftentimes they're legally binding so a lot of language. Therefore you know is is not something that is easy for a common man understand. Why a lot of information could be presenting those documents. You still have to call the are calling your health healthcare payer to get an approval for for the next procedure or next bragged that you're trying to play take or you want to find out why your claim is Declined or your naoko. Claim of property claim in trying to find out what. Your limits are You know whether the whether you have got the plane processed so all these things Required knowledge of knowledge and relationships among various entities present in these documents so one should be able to glean from that The information and and kind of pro dancers To to the end users without requiring in law data staff to sit there and write a lot of ccording to expect these documents so we tied to automate that process

Picky Eating Or Something Else?

"Why. Don't we dive right in and talk about picky eating. I think it's safe to say that. Most parents have kids with picky eaters and in fact there was a recent survey that showed that thirty nine percent of parents say that it's a challenge in their home. So what do you see in your practice. I see a lot of picky eating and there's levels of picky eating the general. Please eat your vegetables. And then there was very serious. Actually medical condition called avoided. Restrictive food intake disorder or kids are frantic about food and react in a very abnormal way. That's very difficult for parents to take care of. So it's a significant problem and researchers also found that picky eating is associated. Now is hard to do this with a direct causation. Because we're not gonna starve children and see what happens to them. But there's a direct association between picky eating and an almost double chance of developing mental health. Diagnosis wow okay and do we know why that is. I think that were. We have a pretty good theory about that. Which is that. Your body isn't the government and a deficit. So if you don't have it you budget cut and survival is the most important thing. So that's going. Be the last thing budget cut so things like learning to speak a second language and mood and and energy those are things that will get cut right right and i had seen that you wrote an article about anxiety and picky eating and obviously now we're seeing increasing rates anxiety and depression particularly among children due to the pandemic so what kind of role does anxiety play in in picky eating. an excellent question julie and plays a big role. Because would you think about kids in today's society especially with the shutdown and pandemic that's raging. They have control of so few things the one thing they do get to control they can close their mouth and you can't make them. Yeah so so. That's a place that they very often. What people are anxious. They want to find something. They can have some providence over right so so for kids. It's like well you make me go to bed. You make me stay home making me wear this mask but gosh darn it. I don't have to eat that. All right yeah. So that's where so very often. These issues are playing out in food. So i'm seeing more and more psychological issues that we used to take care of other ways playing out in my realm in nutrition.

SEC Chair Gary Gensler Plans 'Woke' Corporate Disclosure Rules

"Charlie. I don't know that we've ever spoken. If we did. It was a long time ago. How are you? It's a huge honor and pleasure, Mark. We did speak. You had me out for a book I wrote back in 2000 and three when I was at Newsweek magazine believe. Oh, my God. Well, let me say this. It's a real pleasure. You're a real serious reporter and you do your work and You broke a story today that caught my ear. And I'd like you to explain who is Gary Gansler. And what is he doing? Gary Gensler is a longtime fixture on Wall Street, essentially the revolving door between Wall Street and Washington in the sort of he worked at Goldman Sachs. He worked in the Obama administration, and he worked at the end. I think he worked in the Clinton administration, so he's been going back and forth. He's pretty rich. She was a partner at Goldman Sachs. Now he's the head of Wall Street's top cop, the Securities and Exchange Commission. Um, and he's doing something really interesting now over the years. Gary Gensler has more from sort of a Clinton Democrat into, I guess the best way to put it as an Elizabeth Warren Democrat. He's extremely woke extremely progressive. And he has some extreme ideas of how he wants Corporate America to act. He wants corporate America to adopt extreme woke. Policies he wants. Essentially every company to environment embrace environmental standards. He wants every company to have quote unquote diverse boards and diverse workforces, and he he wants to use government as the lever to do that, and he's doing that right now. At the Securities Exchange Commission. Because the Security Exchange Commission has enormous power over corporate America. It basically can mandate what they do and how they do it, and it could do that through a lot of different levers enforcement actions. In this case, what he's doing is he's proposing rules. And those rules will be passed by the Securities Exchange Commission, which is majority Democrat now, so he's going to ram them through without any without any Republican voice, And these are rules that essentially forced companies. To be more woke in certain areas in in terms of environmental issues in terms of board diversity, they will have to disclose those that their diversity have what they're doing for the environment. And when they do that, obviously, it's going to be a an object where the mainstream media is going to weigh in and say, Look at this company. Company. X is not his woke his company wide. They're not doing as much here than not doing as much there. Uh And I guess the bottom line is this. Listen, you may believe in these policies if you're liberal, if you're a free market capitalist like me, I care about the bottom line, to be honest with you, But if you're a shareholder, you really should be caring about the bottom line. These are not bottom line issues, and they Feed the S E. C s mandate. If you read the mandate, which is to make the markets safe, poor investors to make sure companies disclose stuff that investors care about for too wet to to weigh whether they should Invest in the stock or not. I mean, this is politicizing companies and corporate disclosure to a level that we've never seen before, and he's doing it. He proposed these rules and they

Rep. Byron Donalds on the Harms of Critical Race Theory

"Children were at home. And parents had an opportunity to really see what was happening in the classroom. You know, there's it's been probably about 10, maybe 15 years now that the public school system basically has done away with homework, kids don't bring homework home anymore. They don't bring the textbooks home, so your kid comes home and you're kind of like How was school? It was good, and then they go on to play. Um and you never really get any other detailed information will now kids are at home and welcome. Parents were able to see this. And when you can see it, you start to see some of the things that are coming out in curriculum that are coming out in classes. Obviously, we have the standards of kids now recording it and then showing that in social media and so now has come to the floor, But you're right about critical race theory. It's been around for a very long time. It's actually was really comes from critical theory. And all critical theory was And is it was trying to figure out understanding the framework of this country at that time from an economic perspective, What is the way that you can actually in in introduced cultural, Marxism or ideological Marxism to trying to shift the political ideology of the country and really doing academic analysis of economics and with critical race areas, an academic analysis Of race in America through law through court decisions and through economics. That's really what the genesis of critical race. There he is, Um you know, the sad part is that is that you know if you want to have an academic theory, do that in the in the do that in the halls of higher, Ed, Don't do that in K 12 classrooms you want to go through and really think that stuff through let adults think that through have the opportunity to sit down digest history. Go into the necessary levels of detail. In order to have a real thorough discussion, Understanding don't distill it down into the oppressor oppressed.

"A mark gurman and debbie. Woo apple scoop monday. Their sources say apple is planning to launch a faster. Watch with improve connectivity and screen later this year which okay. That's probably to be expected. There always improving things like connectivity and screens but also what if we got new model types say an entry level and extreme sports model beginning next year quoting bloomberg the cupertino california-based tech giant is planning to refresh the line this year with a model likely dubbed the apple. Watch series seven. By adding a faster processor improved wireless connectivity an updated screen. According to people with knowledge of the plans next year the company plans to update the main apple watch alongside a successor for the lower end apple watch s e and a new version targeting extreme sports athletes apple had previously aim to put a body temperature sensor in this year's model. But that is now more likely to be included in the update. The blood sugar sensor which would help diabetics monitor their glucose levels is unlikely to be ready for commercial launch for several more years for this year's model apple has tested thinner display borders and a new lamb technique that brings the display closer to the front cover. The new watch is likely to be slightly thicker overall but not in a way. That's noticeable to the user. The model will include updated ultra wideband functionality. The same underlying technology in the apple airtags item finder at its developer conference in early. June apple previewed the upcoming watch. Os eight software update. That will the device unlock door and hotel rooms. The extreme sports model described by some inside apple as either explorer or adventure addition was in development for release as early as this year but is now more likely to launch in two thousand twenty two that new model would help apple compete with rugged offerings from players like garmin and casio computer and quote.

The Transformation of Audio Advertising: 3 Key Drivers

"Three kind of key drivers that get us very excited. One is for the first time in the history of broadcast Through machine learning and through continental lyrics. We have context. We know what the customers listening to. And not just the the station or the the program or But like what were they talking about. Thirty seconds before the ad started. And what are they talking about. Afterwards so we can start to make advertising that's more contextual on more appropriate And less intrusive in the listening experience the the second point is got great address ability You know the broadcast industry for a long time was a one way medium where they broadcast out into the world and they didn't know who is listening had to kind of work with third parties like nielsen and arbitron and others to sort of assess their audience and understand who they were. We can understand that at a one to one level now And then the third leg of the stool to your point is interactivity. So you have context. And you know who you're talking to you can allow them to interact with brands. You can have them to interact and purchase You know items that they're hearing about in real time and so you know all of that together you know takes Audio from a place where you know largely i think marketers said well. It's great for brand awareness. It's great for frequency. But i don't really know of it's actionable. I don't really know whether it delivers real outcomes for me. And how to track that to a medium that can compete with video that can compete with display and that you know we can actually understand on a very detailed basis. Its performance caliber And i think that it's very exciting for everybody. It gets exciting for the customer. Because they start getting ads that are more appropriate more contextual and more engaging for them and less disturbing in the in the content consumption experience and it helps marketers tremendously because they can actually engage their audience in a way that's meaningful And that drives. I think hopefully a lot of value For the ecosystem of partners that were creating around the platform. So i think it's a very exciting time like i don't think we've ever been at this moment Before an audio but the thing. I'm i'm very sure about. Is you know over the next five years or so The days of of radio the way that we knew them Not only will. They be distant memories. People won't just be laughing at. Oh god you guys used to use tapes and record off the radio But they're gonna say oh. You never talk to an ad before right happens all the time. That's that's how it's designed now

"We were made to be around one another This something about the full embodiment of being with one another. That is the way that god is actually designed us. You know when you're physically with someone. There are terabytes of information that is going between brain to brain and it's spacial communication and it is the the things that you sense emotions and you you just have like the so much of communication is nonverbal so when when we are in the presence of one another that is the maximum level of communication flow when you reduce it to screen and you say you face timing now. You're looking at megabytes of information that is going by you. Don't have that same spatial. Understanding is you have when you're in the presence of someone within if you then reduce it to a phone conversation now you just hearing you not seeing and so you're not actually even getting to to what someone's facial expressions you know what i would to discern what they actually meant by something because he just hearing the audio within when you reduce it to say an email you just talking about bites of inflammation and you having a difficult time disowning you know. What did they mean by that. Well then you get even less than that and you start looking at a couple of characters on a text message you say we were made to be able to discern one another's presence and communication by being in the presence of one another and we've been essentially stabbed of that for the last year. So i think people are lonely. I think people are missing reference group in other words than the missing. What natural relationships do when you with one another as you kind of your reading people's response on how they receiving you and that in many ways coat-tails things that you say or things that you say. You're you're working on huma. All of that kind of natural interaction. Motion shared experiences happens in the presence of other people You don't get on zoom. You don't get that on a phone call.

What Happens When Hidden Histories Become a National Conversation?

"At the end of may. When news broke that the remains of more than two hundred children had been found at the kamloops indian residential school. It was news to many canadians. Who learning about the history of residential schools and the role. The canadian government played in the creation. It seemed to mark a new sense of awareness across the country in indigenous communities. Grief came quickly but not shock and not surprise. These types of losses are well known in our nation's and in our families and in real time we watch the rest of the country feel the depths of this history daniel heath justice is a colorado born citizen of the cherokee nation and he's an author and professor of critical indigenous studies and english at the university of british columbia. He joins me now to talk about what happens when hidden histories come to light daniel. Welcome to the show. Thank you so much for having me. We're talking about hidden histories on the show today and for me the idea of hidden histories is interesting. Because they're not hidden for everyone up until a few years ago when unreserved would would air story about residential schools. We'd get emails from people telling us that they had never heard of this before the show for sharing this information and that's a luxury indigenous people don't share. It's in our families. It's it's part of our history. How do you think so much of this. History hasn't made its way out of our communities. I struggle with that question. I think there is a sense in many ways that this is only about indigenous people rather than being very much about settler colonial canada. I think there is a sense for a lot of people that when we say school. We mean an educational facility which these were not. I mean these were re education and torture camps. I think we have to start naming them for what they were.

Dave Ramsey vs EXP Realty

"Versus exp and then in men kind of run flee refers to Ramsey company is a coaching company, which it's not. It's basically for the sake of the ELP program. It's a lead selling company. We again, we talked about this yesterday but anyway, in man comes around there, you know, figures the soldier out there, writing this article. It's basically what we talked to you guys about yesterday. There's no real new information as far as the who's in the what's in the wise. But I will tell you what really is surprising to me. As I read this article wage, That Dave Ramsey and I already knew this obviously but they just summarily said we're not doing business with the XP agents any more. Not exp did not have any sort of Enterprise corporate level relationship with Dave Ramsey. Dave basically decided to just sort of get rid of his his I'm sorry, his exp agents no matter how well they've been performing as an ELP and this, obviously, it just seems to be really bizarre. I mean, why would he just summarily get rid of all the EXP agents that are even the most successful in this e l p program? If his whole point of his e l p program is to provide the best service for His Radio listeners in his book purchasers and all the people that follow us advice, I mean ultimately when you and it's fascinating again as you read this article, especially the comments on em and it's really fascinating how far out of Integrity. A lot of agents are perceiving Dave Ramsey to be especially when it's routed back to his Christian values that he definitely leads with wage. And again, if you haven't read this article, definitely read it's called Ramsay versus exp. But I'll tell you, the real punch line here is there's, it looks like there was only a couple of hundred maybe maybe three hundred maximum exp agents off of the ELP program, you know, 57,000 exp agent. So this really is just barely a blip on the radar. But really, I enjoyed reading and I was I was honestly proud of all the agents that were, the agents are interviewed and it was Agents from all different brokerages as agents from all different brands. It wasn't just a bunch of exp ages piling on trying to defend exp, wasn't even mad at all.

I've sat us to thinking about how i'm creating my growth plan and how sitting myself up for success. The she next year the year often. And what i wanted to create on a long-term basis. And as you start to do that you were going to come up against some barry. You're gonna come up against some mindset blocks and that's hardly so wanna share with you some of the things that you may experience as you start to push through a new precipice of success in new precipice of growth milestones. All that sort of thing. So what i mean. By new level new devil is that every new level of business requires a whole new version view and we sat comes a whole new version of blocks and belief systems. That are going to keep you stock and self sabotaging behaviors that are going to keep you playing small. You have created a beautiful comfort zone in the level that you're currently sitting in and that level of comfort ability is going to be challenged as you start to grow to a whole new level. So maybe you've got to the point where added to be quite busy and you quite booked and now you like how do i manage my mindset throughout this busy period. How do i manage. The systems may be look at different processes may need to hire a tame and so all of that is a whole new version rights. A whole new version of you that is required to show up differently to believe that you're capable of learning and growing and upskilling and all managing paper. It's a whole new level of skill set and so every new level requires a whole new version of you. And i'm going to continue to say because i need you to take it on board as part of who you are two nor that you outgrowing throughout experience and i love that saying grocery what you for if you allow yourself to now if you are holding on feast clenched to the old version of you and hauling on fists clench to the old level of business. That has been normal for you. That has comfortable for you. Then you could be creating more resistance than even not necessary so firstly. I want you to acknowledge yourself a how you have come so before you even go to look at that next level of guards. Please take time to stop an acknowledge yourself and celebrate. You a wins. The reason why i say this is not just to enjoy yourself and have been a fun and celebrate. It's actually to embed belief systems that you're able to achieve. You're able to learn and you're able to grow because that's exactly what you've done to get to where you are today so please take the time and actively choose to look at how you created the results you've created so far right. There are certain things that you've done extremely well to get to where you are today so please take the time to acknowledged l. Recognized all the things. You've gone through all the challenge overcame all the time you push through the overwhelm and challenge yourself to keep going. Please acknowledge those qualities within yourself. That got you to where you are today because you're going to need that awareness. You're going to need those belief systems to get you to that next level of growth.

What is the belief systems. I'm going to have to embed. What are the emotions that. I need to be practicing. What is the language that. I need to be using to describe where i wanna go. And how can. I use that language to describe my experience now now. I'm looking to go into that too much in depth. Because i'm going to talk about the language of success and floor and the ease and the the way that we describe our experience. It's how we create a new experiences. So look i dive into that too much today. But i want you to start to think about how you're describing your experience and let's say that next level of success that you're going after i want you just think about how you would describe yourself in that. How would you describe yourself with that level of success under your belt. And that's the belief systems that you want to start to embed now because the quicker you can believe those beliefs the quick you create that reality. Sorry what what i'm saying is when i talk about new level new devil and you may have heard that term before is that we want to recognize. Where's the resistance. What are the belief systems.

But if you stop to think why God is interested in even our most menial tasks my wife Sonya and I have been blessed with two wonderful boys that are three years apart in age. They're in their twenties now but we know that they've always. He's been on loan from God. I'm convinced that being a dad is the best calling on earth growing up. Those boys could almost always make me smile. No matter what they were doing I enjoy watching them play with her toys. I loved hearing them laughing as they as they watch their favorite cartoons or played in the dirt. Sometimes I would stay in their rooms late at night just to watch them sleep. Those guys didn't have to be doing anything in order to please me. They have always always brought me joy and pleasure simply because of who they are my sons. Do you remember what God said. When he finished creating man and woman on the sixth day he said it was very good think about that? They had not even had the chance to do anything yet. He was pleased with them already he. He enjoyed their company as he walked in the cool of the day with them they were made in his image. They were a reflection of him. They brought him. Glory as God's Children Gordon we bring him glory to like Adam and Eve. We are created to praise him with our lives in a famous chapter one. I'm Paul keeps repeating this awesome team to the praise of his glory. Obviously Paul wanted us to see the purpose for our being created all. Aw God has done for us and in us is to the praise of his glorious grace amazing as it may sound because he loves us he has raised US up and seated us with with Christ in heavenly rams so we can one day be trophies of His grace. Dr H A ironside believed that one of these days we are going to have a part in great exhibition. From every part of the Earth there will be gathered together. All who have been redeemed as Dr Ironside Explains Lines in the Lord will then show to all created intelligences. How it has been the delight of God's heart to show great grace two great centers? That is our future a future that does not depend on our faith on us but on his who saved us by His grace in order that we might show show his glories forevermore. I love that quote. Not only will we be his trophies in the coming ages. We are his witnesses now as living proof of his goodness and mercy I Peter Chapter Two nine states. You are a chosen people. You are royal priests a holy nation. God's that's very own possession as a result you can show others the goodness of God for he called you out of darkness into his wonderful light. In the Old Testament God chose Israel to represent him to the nations. God called Israel his witnesses in Isaiah chapter forty three. He said I created him for my my glory. He was talking about Israel. It's no wonder Jehovah Fat. and His prayer second chronicles twenty reminded God of his dealings with Jews. In the past God had always displayed displayed his mind and willingness to protect and provide for his people second chronicles chapter twenty verse. Twenty nine at the end of that wonderful story of of how God delivered them through their praises. It says that the nation's feared the Lord as a result of that rather than the children of Judah they didn't they didn't fear fear the Jews they fear the Lord it was the Lord who won the battle he alone prompted those enemy armies to turn on each other the people of Judah did nothing but obediently standstill and see the salvation of the Lord. Once again God worked through his people to bring glory and praised himself and so it should be in every every aspect of our lives the fact that we are even living and breathing is a testament of his grayson.

"So as we start out tonight having a conversation about this let's set the stage by saying not trying to write hit songs that everyone likes our goal and secondly we we gotta start doing it in order to develop this gift. And that's what I want to encourage you. You don't get anything being else out of nine. I want you to feel inspired by Scott singing. That Song Lady wrote and hopefully about Stephen Encouraging you and me as well and in going you know what I think. That's something we could try our church manifested far as we go. That would be a huge way on to make an impact in your church tweet at at the station. Church in Birmingham Alabama wrote some songs that that represent what our church is going through his time in a couple of became very popular within her congregation and so choke Stephen. I'm going to turn it over to. He was just talk to share with us. Some tips of you know I'd be generally early speaking about songwriting writing what you consider the equality song. Just what just talk to US basically. Yeah Yeah well I am certainly a believer That anybody can write a song antibody. It doesn't as a matter your your musical experience your music position whether it's at a church or otherwise anybody can write a song. One is is that because I think you only need two things. You need an appreciation enjoyment for music when you need to like music. I think that's a pretty fair. Her a fair fair statement and then the second thing is you need to have an opinion. That's it and you like Music Nick and you need to have an opinion. Yes so in other words you need to have the want to write music. And then he made an opinion the ability to be able to look at something and say I like this or I don't like that okay. Never thought of it like if you have the want and you have the ability to form an opinion then you can write a song. Wow Okay wolves are down there you go. That's all. Yeah now if you want to write a good Song Song Oh good. That's when it starts getting complicated actually heard it shared like that. It may have been Ted talk that I still gotTa Talk And I love opening with it because in talking to people about writing music you know. The experience and skill sets of those people vary from very experienced in season to not at all whether it's in songwriting or even in music general In the way he opened with that statement with that idea just made it feel so accessible yet really. I'm still absorbing it to be honest. Yeah so it's just the idea that everyone has something to contribute to that if they if they choose to Netflix. Want to second that. I'm still that opinion. They have an opinion that the ability to choose one thing or another thing of narrow it down to one lyric Wein O converse one thing when melody super broad brushing possibly get now when you ask the question. How do I write a good song? That's when it gets trickier and that's that's what takes more skill more experience more know how good starting point anybody can take even in pursuing that goal of a good song to help themselves get their Starting from scratch in saying who my Ryan the song for burst developing target audience. I think is very important and again. We're still talking pretty broad because the target audience could just be me. If I'm writing a song Oh okay yeah okay so not necessarily for your church. There are plenty of songs. I've written that. No one will ever hear and I don't I don't need them to because I wrote the song. Hey Scott can can I interject and ask you question. Who did you write that song for? Will you wrote more So first and foremost it was me but just because of the type of ministry people that we have. That's something that's a similar song because they share a similar struggle though. My audience was still in that case I could share. It's not a corporate worship Song Song but it's something I could share with them as a special kind of music. Okay so you kind of had a target in mind okay. Yeah and it can. And that's Great I. I was going to comment on that and in just say I appreciate it. Just the heart what you sharing. What the song nothing? That's really good in can absolutely be a dual audience I would say it's a fair statement that anything I write entirely by myself IRA at least in part for me from my perspective because as his forefront but I do think it's important especially if summarize new thing for you and you're just trying to understand where do I begin and so if that's if that's you ask that question or if you're leading attain and you're trying to direct them in where to begin I think these are helpful ideas India's so ask the question writing. For whom are I've your if your church team your your band is writing the song then. It's probably going to be writing generally generally speaking for your congregation for example. And so if you're looking at songs for a car Gatien than you also have to think of okay. I want to write I- melodies single both regarding the key but also regarding the rhythms of the melody if Iran for the church run the you know the melodic doc movements it needs to be something that that can be learned in in Sant- long with what we've got some non musicians listening. So what do you mean by melodic movement defined that. What do you mean by that thing? I don't have to explain it exactly in terms of simplicity. Sure versus a complex melody. What does that mean? Well the cool thing I the non musicians listening thing. I think you actually have a very almost an advantage in regards to that because you are the average listener. I've always felt that way in terms of songwriting in writing for those of us that spend all this time for him practice hours in study hours into writing music. There's a ton of advantage to that but there's something to be said Who doesn't hear music? Live here your song in what they say about it. Because that is the average listener right there so surrounding melodies. If you're not oughta musician then you probably have the advantage in terms of riding in terms writing accessible melodies okay because mother questions accessible muscle in the sense that they can sing it or they can just listen to it. I believe sing it. Okay in the college the five percent of most songs in churches. Hopefully they would wanNA sing along with. That's personally my go I'M NOT GONNA make try and make biblical cases to watch bill that all the time but that's yet I mean if you're if you're if it's a car Gatien setting well out one for that period of time on stage with people is four feel like a unified they can engage in single ride so melodic movement means that doesn't get so complicated in so wordy or so intricate in its movements. It's up and down from not that it confuses people are caused them not to want to sing. Yeah okay sure we're clear There's a song right now that kills actually playing live that I wrote on enough that I don't enjoy live which one it's called. Hold you is the name of the song and so the courses. Why don't you let me hold you risk Joel head and quit? China fight with the way the drums move. It's a song. It feels like you should be able to engage to. It just feels like something. You WanNa clap to nationally but the clapping it'd be on the offbeat accents with offbeat so it's Oh. Yeah was her own. Yeah am especially why people don't get so so it's just a bunch of you know And I did it so I created the song so it was my my bad but stuff like that for example. You know if I'm writing four congregation I wanna give them Ed good opportunity to be involved in to jump in with that. Okay now there buddy okay with understanding what we're saying that China just yeah And y making sense what that if I'd be interested to know if you guys agree with that That's a good question. I agree with in terms of if you're ever in what what is it like. Is that what it should look like. I guess is what I'm saying. I think the challenge was that I think the challenge with a lot of stuff. That's coming out right now. Is that it's cool. But it's not easily Singapore for a congregation. Yeah Ohka the song. He's are the classic example of the past five ten years of. Oh my yeah yeah yeah yeah yet exactly. Ten years ago fifteen. Eighteen years ago songs were lower keys but now popularity is to go much higher. That is hard right for US guys to sing along with it and you know I think. Nothing's black and white very little especially music because music is so ultimately subjective. It's so broad You know so. I think there is a line of the balance in writing even for a congregation because he don't write stuff. That is so stupid. Simple that people just get burnt out on on it after two weeks you know oh cut. So there's something to be said for writing for writing melodies that that are interesting in terms of movement while also also being successful even if it takes them three weeks to acts two or three times listening like you know. I don't think there's anything wrong with writing something that takes people a few weeks to get a hold. AWW Okay like album go back to Scott Song. What was interesting to me to me is stopped afterward more any pause the insides the word Mora? Yeah was that intentional. Scott did you like okay. I want more ongoing. I'M GONNA I'm GONNA stop you. Gave like a beater to of space between joined the next phrase and I bought last kind of cool to me that that felt intentional. I don't know if it was and that that that helps me remember that word in other. I still remember now even at once though it was not intentional but I appreciate that feedback. Some to think about that again. It wasn't intentional. But I appreciate the feedback because that's something to think about as I write future songs stop. It was like a break you the chorus go again. Scott there is more than you can see right now. That's that's interesting any Emphasizes Worse Mooring. You are important. I think that's it..

"In our in our just believers to follow Christ and sharing his love and we discussed the reality that the reality is that in our culture. People are not beating down the doors of our church. So there's people all around Zion and going to hell worshiping comfortably so we begin to ask. Where can we began as musicians to share our faith in Christ through word and and though? Here's some things that we've done in terms of preparation for join outside the Falls Church. One of them is We have every single group every single group I think without exception we do an annual evangelism training training. And it's not like you come on a Sunday afternoon for two hours it really is kind of woven into about two or three rehearsals about the same time each year and we Are Learn every year or review a plan for sharing our face. ABC's of Salvation Four spiritual laws Roman road and normally. I retired that training into a pre mission trip. So it's different times because the groups go on mission trips but we also do it our senior choir who mostly Mr Locally And we talked about how to have conversations segues that will work eater day today or on mission trips where we can move from talking about everyday common things to having a spiritual conversation though Were talking about this At least once a year in the hope is for high school choir like at four years. A Kid's GonNa know for different Y assured her face for different plans and one of them is probably GonNa stick because you know what I can do the Roman road I can remember for. I can remember four scriptures and regard the mission trips. We just remind kids that missions is a lifestyle. It's not an event that we're helping those connect the dots between What we do as a choir outside or whatever? The music team is outside the church to our everyday life. We talked about this one. We're headed to Washington DC Acquired the goal was Washington. DC But put some kid had the nerve to lead someone to Christ the kiosk in a mall on the way in Washington DC. We had even arrived there yet. So it's not that it's in routes We also do role playing which a lot of fun inquire we leave each other required to Christ would just walk through that so that it's not we've had this conversation with a believer in our rehearsals is in singing ministers high school choir. ALLSTATE cryer appraised team praise band all of these groups. This is what we do and it reminds us and then we just connected to music in fact the most of the concerts that we craft regarding whatever in using whatever time you get is mostly contemporary Christian is built around or spiritual laws. We first thing about who got is how good. He hasn't how much he loves us. We'd saying maybe if your head worry recenter yet F. that you know we're just messed up. So we have those concerts to outline for spiritual law so we don't do them necessarily don't always say all that but it's a definitely a process love that the APP. Wow and then some of the places that we go to share the Gospel senior adults coach senior facilities. And that's good. Did of the one of the things. We constant talk about his remembering that. What seems to be our core audience lifetimes people around here givers of senior homes often much more receptive to the Gospel when they see how we treat her clients? We sing correction facilities both with youth adult groups. This mall's seasonally. Special needs facilities is an amazing place this year. Christ in fact we have a special needs choir liar because they share such purity. Wow did he parks City festivals are contemporary worship band in place of the crawfish festival. We go to five K.. Races and sing the national anthem before they fire the gun played we. Have you know Electric Guitar. Players pursue some crazy rendition of the national anthem. Anything that we can do to be where folks are who don't have price that's our focus. That's awesome and you can. Do you can new mall still. They're open team to coming in and doing a concert at all that seasonal difficult. Aw If we can get a mall now. Our default is Flash Mall with something kinda rides it may not have a uniquely spiritual spiritual message. But it's something that everybody. Oh May I know that song wearing matching shirts or sitting in the food court right after. So we're praying and lifetimes conversation stations development of that so we don't give up your right shopping malls increasingly will they'll they'll vet your repertoire. Go No you're not coming. Yes right right right okay can I ask you. A question is based on pretty much. Everything is everything you're talking about is like crazy awesome like I'm blown away. I just want to move and go to your church like seriously but how do you do so much like. How big are your teens? How big is your church is i? I feel like as a church like we do and now I feel like I just need to sit back and like to start over like I'm blown away. How big is your church? The church compared to is not real large. Like five thousand. We run maybe sixteen hundred but I'm only responsible for like half is that make stance on different teams like how many people are are in some type of music ministry. I guess for your team then is well. Maybe maybe eighty two hundred in the adult choir. And there's forty or fifty bicycle twenty five or thirty middle school senior dog same orchestra. So there's a number of years but I work with other groups. Side is just. I think it doesn't the team thing is your passion wherever you are here if your passion is to mobilize resources that are entrusted. You Cher love of Christ outside your church wherever I am whatever group it is whatever the size if we had five people in our fire. We'll be going. We'll be going somewhere just because I just our culture there's so much luck with so many people are going to hell and they're not come in charge churches though we're one of the most I don't even when we go. We don't even sing in churches purchase except on Sunday so we can be said for the balance of the week on. There's just so I don't know Just about prisons that is the mission field and you can go there with any sized group take awesome workshop have your ID's stuff like that but Taking adults to second prisons is the greatest recruitment tool that. I have in our worship choir. which sounds counterintuitive until folks experienced and the chaplains that were working working with regularly now with contend that the next right right spiritual movement in our country is going to come from within prisons? Well aren't you already seeing that some New Orleans seminary has the classes going on. Tell tell us where you've minister because it's the famous prison well we've been angle which is Louisiana's very for many many years in New Orleans seminary body in a campus there. They have ads on teachers who come in and now they have a Master's program southwest research the same thing at a prison we were standing Rocher in Texas also'd and what's cool. Is those guys that are coming to seminaries in these prisons and are graduating with degrees and then angle is modeled. This is sending out graduates of their seminary's there seminary as ignition pastures in smaller state prisons. That's amazing it is amazing now. Other other penal institutions from many other states are coming Eh to study. How does this work in? The doors are wide open. Praise Lord which is crazy because we can't pray schools. I know we can present a sixty minute concert full of the Gospel and give an invitation. The other two things. Well I love how her ended that putting it in perspective that they can go into a prison like in Gola and I can see many people saved. Why would we not want to do that? Is Much troubles may be as challenging. May Be a scary. Frankly that may be what reward there is insane people come to Christ thank you her four year example leadership in this area over the years and thank you for allowing us to hear your heart on this important matter as well as all the things she shared with us over the past.

That could really really help you. So check it out. Next level worship dot com and then click on the training staff and then click on the worship leader intensive the reimagined contents of it's called will no further I do. Here is our friend. Josh Anders Worship Pastor at the point church in Fort Wayne Indiana talking to us about how he deals with negative comments comments in ministry. He no church like ours. Were Church of about eleven hundred on Sunday mornings. You gotta live References a lot. You do you have a lot of preferences Just have to learn. You have to have a foundation. First of all the you're never gonNA be able to please everybody one hundred percent. It's not gonNA happen. The second of all helps to have a support structure a leadership structure. That will that will not throw you to the wolves so to speak. I've been there in the past and it's not fun. You know where you try to do the right thing. And you're not supported. It's it's very very difficult but I think being in a healthy environment and healthy functional the leadership structure. A church like really helps. Our pastor just has a school light lists than we know who god has called us to reach in. That's who are reaching and and and we have a particular visual and how we're going to implement things and there's a reason for it in a row reaching people that no one else is reaching in our city and so other things that we're GONNA do. That's going to be very specific you know. And we're not gonNA straight from us. Thanks and so I remember. There was a time where and this was really difficult difficult for me. There was a time where there was a lady who used to be a part of the worship team. Before I came and by by the time I'd come she'd been off the team for a while but her daughter had brain cancer and eventually unfortunately pass from her daughter. I was just in her early twenties Well she came up to me one day and she was like listen The lights are giving my daughter seizures. And I'm like really issues. Like yes she's like she's like we she just this kid. We can't even come into after the worship and so I said they're really giving us like seizures. Wow I man. I don't definitely don't want that to happen happen. You know and she went on to explain as she explained. She backed up a little bit. She's like well you know you're just giving your headaches you know well and and so it got to the point where like. I understood like you know. She was just being really overcautious with with there with her. And in so I went to my pastor announcers like hot ally addresses because I don't WanNa seem insensitive to this family in He said in any kind of coach me you know what the state so the next time I saw her solicitor said I understand that This may be a problem for you guys to let me help you find a solution you know and I gave them several options of where they could sit in the in the worship Sarah that it would not be an issue for them and and even some extra out of the box suggestions and you know at first. It was just that well we. We love sitting down towards the front. I'm like I know but you know I know. Oh scientifically that. What we were doing wasn't causing anybody any health issues because we're not operating those devices that would do that. but. I didn't want to come out and tell her that she was wrong but I offered a solution to help the problem and so they really appreciated that and they took the advice and just thanked me for from then on so it could have been something where I could have got because at the time I was programming the light that could have gotten on really defensive about it but I chose not to. And it was just one of those situations where the happens. You know every once in a while. You'll get the comment on the connection card in music too loud or you know. Why don't you do this song. I if you ever have someone tell you that in person just you know. I really appreciate your input. Thank you so much. I'll take this to the team and we'll we'll discuss this together and so I think it's important to acknowledge people's thoughts but we obviously cannot change for every single preference or every single family in in one way to say it is say. Listen and you wouldn't want us to cater specifically toward your family. So here's some solutions of of what we do and you you know and just assuming positive on them in I think we just we just don't have a lot of. I think when you start feeding into the to the a preferential treatment you'll start seeing more people voice preferential concerns but when you when you find yourself staying on the vision in the track that God has given you in supporting the passers vision in pastors supporting you. When you support the pastor's vision you start to see you. Just don't really hear negative feedback much anymore and honestly. I didn't think that was possible. But it's true at least it's been true for me here like you create a culture where it's just like. Hey this is look goddess called us to and it might not be a good fit for everyone and that's okay if it's not because there's someplace that it will be a great fit for you and you can grow and learn but in the meantime we're GONNA GONNA keep helping people find follow Jesus Division. He's given us and so I think if he stayed true to that that in a and loving way in a kind way and always affirming people and letting them know their voices certainly welcome to be heard in that you care for them it just it really makes a lot of things not issues. There's several things can glean from that and trying to just kind of bullet points you said you're obviously the support you get from your pastor and vice versa. That is our my house house. Kind of watering because some of US listening to you. Don't have that to be honest. Some of US listening. Don't even have a pastor at all right now and show it's difficult. I know when I went into valley view with many changes that we made the calls. The pastor asked me to he did support me through it but we did get negative comments but they had created not not not our pastor. I was with but it'd been that way many years. Where they they. They had to say so. They felt like they they ask some ownership and so when we started changing what they lied. We definitely heard negative comment. So you're in a unique situation. Josh that maybe others aren't hearings much but you know because because you've been through those kinds of situations I know what if I know what it's like to do the right thing and and then toilet blow going blink. Points you said is that you still have the ham positively and you do handle it you you you had a team. I I WANNA pull that out in 'em size. Did you catch what he said that he said. Hey I'll take this to the team in other words he wasn't just don't put it all on yourself because then you become the bad guy. Why if you're going to say that you you really gotta go do it with somebody talk to somebody else around you ask somebody but that way becomes a bigger thing than just with you. It's not just issue saying well. No there's no we don't I don't do that. Well it's about the team and And so that that kind of gives some help and support to you when you say that to a person one out of it. Also then I'll stop talking but I think what you said. The beginning of that was very powerful that you need the direction. It is clear where you were going and so you knew that that these things would help get you in that direction even if some are negative about it. You had a calmness about that because you had a piece of mind in that and It's not a it's not. You never lose your teachable. But you know that that you have as a leader of vision that maybe those individuals individuals don't have as much and they don't understand so you don't want to be condescending but the reality is you're GonNa go the way guys told you and I think those are powerful things. Take away from what you to say. Thank you so much Josh for sharing that with us today. That was an excerpt from his interview with US During our coaching session. That we did with him. Recently we will have him back again next week to talk to us again but this time he will be talking to us about set design. You don't WanNa miss that. If you've got a question something you want us to address here on the worship and a podcast send us an email at office at next level worship DOT COM and. We'll do our best to get your question answered. Thanks thanks so much and have a blessed week and don't forget to pray for us as we are in Kenya. ministering bleeding confidence. Thanks so much..

"That worship leaders are asking this week. We have a special guest with us. Back again. Is Name is herb arm and south and he will be talking to us about how to be be sensitive to others in ministry without becoming vulnerable to the point of discouragement and defeat this very needed topic. That many of us deal with from week to week because inevitably going to receive negative comments situations. And how do we deal with that in. A positive way curve is going to talk to us about that. He was in one of our sessions for our coaching program. Just a few weeks ago and we have already featured him on a couple of our podcast take from that interview that we did with him in the coaching program. So this is another excerpt from his interview with us before we get to to our topic today with herb. I I want to ask you to pray for us. Because as you're listening to this podcast we are most likely flying over to Africa Africa. We fly out this week and we start a worship leader intensive school in Bulwayo Zimbabwe. We have leaders liters pastures and worship leaders church leaders coming from six different countries all converging into a retreat center in Zimbabwe.

This is GonNa be phenomenal nominal so please pray for that a bit as we start that later this week. If you haven't signed up yet for our next phase of coaching you need to get involved with that you what what are you waiting for.

Please check it out. Go down website. Next level worship DOT COM and click on the tray tap for more information. And while you're there look at the intensive that we are offering in Louisville in October sign up for that I promise you you'll be glad you did with no further. Do I want to bring her men now to talk to us about about big sensitive without becoming vulnerable. One of the reasons is so critical that we have this there will worship rush being our heart and I I didn't I hope I didn't communicate. We're approaching music slipshod fashion because we're all about doing things with excellent but if there's not a hardened engagement if there's not expression of praises visible outside of ourselves I mentioned the people who watch us on livestream or come to our worship services and who you are lost at looking for hosts no difference in our faces our worst expression. They're saying. I don't need that already. Have that is is not happening inside. We can't express outwardly though we're constantly going back to the core why. Why are we standing in front of our people and if if we are standing there we've got to evidence life change is if we don't the music means nothing it's sermon notes and rhythms and and words that is disconnected? Let me jump track a little bit and we'll bring winging. PG from India looks a little bit in the conversation PG is here with US tonight and it's six thirty in the morning for him or whatever time it is now but he's very faithful to be here every week as is our other folks that get up in the middle of the night from other countries but PG is an isn't a church that doesn't have actual worship team that leads the monash standing directly people start seeing within the congregation in that basically how it works. PG and so so you know it's easy for a guy like PG two houses plot to me. I don't have a team that you actually does has an amazing band that plays at youth events and and and and other things but I mean within that church setting. PTA doesn't really have team. So I would say how do you apply this to your church in general how to how to you from the from the platform or are how would you encourage a church. That to grow spiritually through your through what. You're doing her not just your team so to speak in rehearsal setting but on Sunday mornings occasionally remind folks We talk about the text is not the same level. We just We were we talk about our expression and were should when virtually when we when we read scripture we talked about how gods were sharper than a two edged sword in it is vital in dynanmic. And so we don't read a vantage. We in fact will just stop reading. You just say we're not. This is not what God desires is the way so reading this right now and so We don't ever do that at ugly. You're not really encourage folks to participate. Yeah area and regularly at the end of our worship services Not regularly but occasionally just say I will remind folks to measure our worship is not what transpired in this different. The measure of our worst. What is going to happen outside the walls of this churches we live out our worship? Raise your hands or whether you shouted or whatever over here expression of worship. That's great but it's really more now than so. We try to connect that Chris loves to we talked about Worshiping a celebration of God's mighty acts so Russian but they just flipping things and really try and keep the car Gatien involved in that Kardashian. Involvement is huge. We plant in such a way that people can engage in feel comfortable because of if it's above if it's a level of musical range or rhythmic difficulty that would prohibit Utah. There's all met them. We've Kinda cut him out of it so all those things are kind of apartments. Maybe helping folks. I had opportunity early on my ministry Working with an organised to she was definitely right in the top of the team team and this was my first church at a seminary. This woman was Though hateful to me in she'd been there long time for I came. She was determined to last throughout last mate. And I didn't use the organ every I'm going to kind of go around a little bit to describe what God taught me and maybe I could just share. Would you if she didn't get to play on everything. She was upset when she was scowl at me from the Oregon bench anyway. It's just a difficult situation than kind of peaked. One Sunday afternoon when she and her husband stood in Hong shouted at me the thing that God impressed impressed upon me in regard to answer your question is that our people act the way they do for a reason and what God quickly taught me without. It wasn't even. It was just a realization. I think that came just through reading God's word and that is that there was a great deal of pain in her heart and so understanding ending it. The pain is She was responding to an. I was the recipient of all that eggs if I could if God would empower man. He did to respond to every single time with respect and grace to her then I would be able to minister effectively. Because that remained my goal was ministry to her and allow God to flow through me and grace is not not. He's I would just say that it's a costly coming constant coming back to you Lord. It's difficult because the in our churches And we are teams. The thing that makes us the best minister is our sensitivity to the needs of other people. It also opens us up. It makes us vulnerable to The the doors that people throw at us and many times those are hurled. Gasoline are most vulnerable times pre or post worship service. Or maybe at the end of a long hersal I would say A continual reliance on God's grace annual. Remember that we are absolutely all the Flavin stinkers and can offering that same grace as to the one thing that I think is also helped us to to be intentional about loving the people who are socially peripheral or awkward or Taking steps to love and engage them allows a lot of folks in the choir to know that it doesn't matter who they are how they act on were family. Because that's that's the tone because of other people see us responding kinds of folks. I'm sure hateful to us than they don't have a career in terms of being accepted by the balance of the team and I think a not a wedding a uh time alone because that was one of the things with some of these folks over the years is to sit down with them instead of just Turkey issue or choose another hallway in the church coach when I see him common is invite them to come sit our if I can discover the need. Whatever it is it's emotional or whatever really trying minister and I love him in the middle of that as always her barmen? Trout has blessed us and encouraged us through the teaching today and again we're reminded that it requires the power of God the spirit of God in us to know how to deal with people how to lead our people on we tweet bases so thank you for your words of wisdom. If you have a question something you would like for us. Answer on this podcast. Please shoot an email L.

This year we have Laura Story. Tim Tim Allen's daca Vernon UELI. I'll be there speaking. It's GonNa be incredible credible time. Don't Miss it you can go to our website find out about all of these opportunities with no further ado. Here is herb. Arman Trout talking about challenging our worship team and choir to grow spiritually through rehearsals. We remind folks regularly this Sunday. Sunday worship is to be a celebration of God's mighty works during the entire week is not a once a week fits and that continual repetition of just This idea Wow say that again. So you encourage your your folks to understand the continual the continual in it and this is not Sunday as or whenever you're worship services NAM and so that is critical for us and we host the two that we regularly talk about dangerous texts dangerous and I'll often stop in the middle of the song that declares. our allegiance allegiance to the father desire to walk in his will and just stop in the UK. Really know what you limit. This is what you just said and BA fathers here and he heard everything you just said so that back trial if you don't mean it don't sing it just to get the next day anthem. If you do us you get like crazy or play like crazy so yeah we. You were focused. Big Time on the text the Psalms on and we we occurs also as van hersal an orchestra rehearsal because times those you're going through chord charts or whatever maybe nice connected to the texts that we take time to talk walk through those texts and encouraged all the groups to use those in their personal worship into something happens to You're practicing on your own for Sunday. Maybe you've focused on a song. You just sing Acapella or just play to Lord but in your personal worship time when you get you get to worship on Sunday brimming over because on just thinking on this. Hey I have a question I know these guys probably have some questions for you to You've been there for several years like you said nineteen years so now it's ingrained in the culture. I everyone expects you to take time to go over the text action. You know they they learned. They know that's what we're GONNA do when we come to two or hersal at Broadmoor Church. We're going to take time to look at the text but I know when I went to Louisville it took a while for them to change from the culture to run and gun and run it in there and rehearsing just getting the court cartwright and then leaving we hear all this and we want to jump out there and do it tomorrow. What how long did it take? You know it's been a while now but you may remember I mean did it take. Did you walk in and like six six months. Turn this thing around or was it already like that when you got there because these are things that all of us wish we were doing more of but the route is probably not doing them all. And how long does it take from one to really ingrain. Some of these things into your people. I would say that the things on describing her dine in small doses and they're woven into the fabric of the rehearsal. That's what I thought. Yeah it's not like Oh now this is what we're doing now. You start with prayer but these other things are just kind of Woven not all are prescribed if that and I think that kind of variety in the way that we do these sayings brings about openness. The rehearsal is pace but he hersal itself itself. You know folks Wanted feel like time as well stand they also want when we finish the song they WanNa talk to the person next to them because they haven't seen him since you know as other catching up right within they want there needs to be a spiritual reward and all this because that's the reason that primarily there is because they wanted me in God's presence and I worship and they want to be a part of making music with a group of people whatever group it is worship choir is hour and a half correct orchestra They do meet for Saint Pre time occasion. I go in their high school. Choir is an hour and fifteen minutes And I work with them. Dr Group seen ministers and stuff so I guess the shortest period of time ahead any groups probably an hour might that does not very long long they still GonNa get through the music. I think. That's at the heart of the issue was the understanding that using ministries not about music I. It's about people. So hello if your quest is to make perfect music. You'RE GONNA lead people in the dust. We do occasional book studies and these have been great. We've used certainly pure praise Rory Nolan's announcer you've talked about this Dwayne or Nolan's book on hardly artists say brand new book. That has just. I'm just starting putting in it now. Pretty sure we're GONNA do at some point. It's called how to ruin your life and as I eric. Geiger is just unofficially. If you guys have heard of this but Ready yet but I've heard it was the story of essentially of King David an it's an implosion of integrity in his life. But but man you talk about. Direct US primarily leaders weather's worship pastors or leaders in the area of business or whatever even a family leader it just talks a lot about setting out guidelines in your life for everything not just one particular section but how to avoid this implosion that seems to be sometimes it Proportion of epidemic of loss of integrity. We do the group prayer time different ways that we pray. We have prayer partners for short periods of time. It will just assign those because we want folks get to know other people always men with men and women women we also does some kind of crazy with secret partners where we will assign folks the weather to pray for not tell him who it is and then they will also bring a gift for every Wednesday from months to this And just put it on their chair or in their the end holiday they meet each other the only dangerous. If you've got some losers who don't buy in and know again you got somebody Then our high school choir we have Teams were the kids rotate through their sponsor teams. We Care Group leaders in all these and I think mega answer that question. Regard Investment is archer. Greet leaders are in all of our teams really. Carry out a good bit of spiritual and emotional care because It's just the way families work large family you've got people assigned to care for other people and then That shepherding shared the. You're developing These folks who are already committed you're sharing sharing leadership responsibility and they're growing. They can build sprain work of leadership. That's strong spiritual leadership around around you because Whatever wherever server were there temporarily and so we've built a structure strong Spiritually or ship. The share Ma'am that Helps her folks feel like they're invested in something that matters the families of such importance right now folks scattered and one of the things that we did in terms of just celebrating Is Recognizing in rehearsals. The time that we have together is that God is at work and we debriefed testimonies on choir tours. Also case inquiry. It starts what I saw. God I saw God doing this. We celebrate that and then finally they'd in this section I would Guide stories. We have people submit John Stories on the memo on your phone. My name is in his ninety seconds long and this is how I saw God intervene in the situation. They send the band that we can play it back with just a picture. There's we've done that a worship for those folks who were paralyzed by having a camera on they'll talk and we give a little outline you know this is. The problem won't listen. Johnson are mentioned and this brings to himself now well once again. Her Armor Trout has challenged US and helped helped us with some wonderful ideas.

"Questions. That worship pushes leaders are asking today. Our topic is how do we shepherd our team. We have a wonderful guest here today to tell us how to do then adding he is certainly one is doing that streaming well at his church his name is per Arman. Trout perv is the worship pastor at Broadmoor Baptist Church in Shreveport Louisiana. It was our guest for a coaching session. A few weeks ago where he taught our students about shepherding the grew Lynch story as well as how to do missionary worship outside the walls. So we're going to bring you an excerpt from that coaching session today specifically with her answering the question. How can I shepard my group before before her joins US let me encourage you to join our next phase of CO cheap it begins in September and we will continue to have special guests in like her her and others and we will learn how to make an impact within our church in within our community to grow not only our team but more importantly to grow disciples and I and the Kingdom of God so please go to our website next level worship dot com? Click on the training tab to sign up to be a part of our coaching. Another thing that you you need to check out and we'd love for you to be part of our worship leader intensive we call it the reimagined intensive which will be held in Louisville in October of this year here. It is a five day event that I promise you. In fact I guarantee that it will impact your ministry for years to come. Please consider joining joining us for that. Go to our website. Next level worship DOT COM and click the training tap there. You will also see information about intensive well here is her talking to us. This today about shepherding are grew. Maybe just start foundationally in terms of being a good shepherd. We've got to spend time time with the Good Shepherd say foundationally just to be a spiritual encourage your for the folks that are trusted to us. We I gotta be connected to cry. Price vitally and we know we can't produce living water out of it personally. Speaking out of a dry will I think for me comes back to just some foundational conditional things numbers number one just bring daily. Reading God's were utilizing emotion book one of the things that really helps me a whole a lot. In terms of just connecting with folks in our ministry has to do praying for them by name and we use prayer requests cards and several rehearsals. That I do folks folks submit requests cards with their name and their specific prayer requests. That I take that and I pray for that's also sent an email to the rest of the the musical family whatever it is a choir or orchestra and then taking time to ask them when I see them about how God is provided or what kind of answer. He's brought regard to their specific request. lets him know that I care deeply about them in spiritually connected to them another thing. That's been a tremendous help. Terms terms of shepherding as memorizing scripture does my heart and it's really speaking from worship pastors perspective Cost memorization of Scripture de to really Negates almost the idea being creative in verbal segues and worship leadership is ready. I mean you don't have already come up with something clever to say just use scripture Benchley for me to in terms of being a good schepers. I just have to be in a Bible study or small group and not one that I'm not leading the I'm constantly being fed so Yeah and then. I have an accountability partner Who will ask the hard questions? I'm just talking about foundational things here in terms of being spiritually responsible as a leader and then the one thing I think that really helps connect back to this later is to have a personal mission field outside the scope of your Music Ministry for me that and you know I think when we ate together regularly we will ask. Waiters waitresses the restaurants where we frequent How we can pray for them? So we've begun to build emission theory really in a simple way in restaurants and then running and swimming women groups in point of fact that's hard to be really encouraging people to be on mission with integrity integrity if we're gone on mission and so these are just some foundational Things are johnny down. discipleship and mentoring is that we're headed in the right direction man. We're all filling convicted. But yeah yeah you're right. Yeah the constant is a constant deal for all of us in terms of Shepherding or deciphering or mentoring our team coverage meant however Maybe we would title this. I would say big he First of all list I understand that music is a means of ministry and it's not the UNE game and for musicians is important to remember that musical perfection does not equal successful successful ministry. It just doesn't equate be useful first of all in terms of mentoring start closest to home because if you below hello family you failed in ministry at the most fundamental level so setup boundaries and then discipleship the basic level. To me is is kind of a two way deal In terms of mentoring that we have somebody who mentors US and controversies his people for certainly someone to pour into our life with wisdom council and for me. That's Larry Heslop Poos Education Minister Calloway. Addison Addison's Houston A friend for thirty five years and I can call him in an. He'll tell me the truth and he'll guide but it's the same in the the same way to turn that around to constantly be Asked folks that you can mentor. And that can be individuals goals in your ministry or Small root for me Case that work with a small the group of young men doing on just mentoring them just in basic Pitcher principals saying then Casey doing mentoring where a group of young worshippers faculty used to appraise The last time we went through a mentoring group and that was on great. Great Study for these young worship pastor sears retrievers in other groups would be it would include media worship team or praise band or music staff or wire orchestra. These are folks that we have an opportunity to encourage in mentor and Guide spiritually spiritually. I think maybe to be essential in our discipleship because the way that we disciple by the way that we mentor and Courage trickles down which can enormous responsibility when you consider the fact that In these rehearsals China we share with our team a lot of the principles pulls they were utilizing the things that were sharing. Many Times. Make their way into homes or into other ministry groups or Pretty important there were intentional in this in in our hersal we begin with a prayer time. But it's usually pretty brief. We really utilize because our folks are so busy that we allow folks a lot of people to share individual requests rehearsal settings that can take most of the time the Russell so we ask folks to write those down on and then the end and we we live we also coast him so everybody and can pray through those in emails through the week. Most of the time we'll have some type of devotional thought inquire utilize fire officers times And I'll most the time if I'm doing on connecting it to worship Music Nick. Either that will be in the rehearsal or in the upcoming Sunday's worship set often use worship songs As part of our warm up. And we're not doing those songs to rehearse songs to begin to worship our preparation for worship Not Not just technical because we began to kind of open up our hearts and we did it not variety away sometimes we pray pairs sometimes a it depends on what's going on in people's lives times. You can sense it. I think there's a special sensitivity to what's going on in the room times got I think will give you unawareness as to how to begin rehearsal in a way that will help folks connect to the Lord so if we do it in different ways different Wednesdays. Different for Sunday's when we have these rehearsals because everybody's different roles you can look at people's eyes and sometimes people are just hanging on You know they come straight from. Were to these rehearsals and from were having dinner and or sometimes are there's a lot of happiness but his pens. We spent a lot of time talking talking about Preparation for our our Weekend Worship Services I ride a grace. Note our newsletters. Here's called grace notes. I'll often choose one song from the worship set to zero in on that and do some studying few data background composer or the the story of him worship Song that Kinda helps people begin to think about that and I encourage everybody in the worst teams aims to choose one song during a mid week rehearsal to focus in on the balanced the week sometimes during the rehearsal on I'll invite folks to just share with the song who has done for them because most shawls choir praised They rehearse leaving work on for weeks to God's begun to do you many times at work for them and they'll connect maybe with one song Come to the altar. Whatever the song is they'll grab hold of that yacht spears? I do work in them. So they're kind of eager sometimes to say. Hey I got to tell you this week. We experience some loss in our family and this song that we've been singing for four weeks now just just just camped there and then we remind folks readily this Sunday worship is to be a celebration. A God's is mighty worse during the entire week is not a once a week fits so thankful for her shared with us. Today I know that it has encouraged you and perhaps convicted you in the same way. It did me and our students with our coaching session when he joined us a few weeks ago. Please let us snow. How we can pray for you? Send US an email at office at next level worship Dot Com and also let us know if there's a topic you would like us to address here on worship you in a podcast.

"Here's Tony Speaking on how to attract quality musicians. I'm talk about four little factors that address in my book that I believe need to be present and but let me start by saying this if you're sitting in your church office wondering why why musicians aren't just clamoring to be in your program. You're making a huge mistake by I just sitting in your office remember. I talked about all those club musicians. Who are you're playing on Saturday night if you're not going out and finding the t the musicians and your team are in your community and letting them know you exist? Here's here's here's another way. I put it before you go on your next mission trip to you know whatever country to to Hawaii before you take your next mission trip recognize. Recognize that you're a musician and your one of your primary mission. Fields is in your neighborhood to the musicians in your community. So so here's another question you can ask do the musicians who live in my town outside of the ones who are in my church. Do they even know I exist. Do they know my name. Do they know me me at all. Have they ever met me. Have I ever gone to see them play like do I have any relationship with the musicians in my community. If the answer is no then you sitting in your office office waiting for them to come in. Is the totally wrong way to go about that. You need to go out and start meeting those musicians letting them know that you're a musician letting them know what you do every week. Go like how great to be now obviously some environments are not ideal for all of us to be an but how great if you're at some restaurant distraught where there's live music and there's a whole table church whole table of people from the church cheering on this great guitar player like eventually you're going to meet that guy you're gonNA and he's going to wonder who this table is that so enthusiastic and clapping after all of a solo. There's going to be a relationship built there. What a great mission field that is for you? Go Out and start meeting those people. So I almost regret the title of my book being attracting quality musicians because there are things we can due to attract them but it leaves out that. What such a key thing is that we also should be going out and getting them but in terms of attracting them if that musician walks walks into your church for the first time? I believe. There's at least these four things that need to be in place. The first one is the quality factor which is a lot of what we're talking about. The fact is quality quality musicians. Want to be a part of quality music if a great drummer walks in. And you've got a band up there who can barely hold it together. There's not a whole lot of emphasis for him to get in. And I'm here's the thing. He may be very ministry minded and say I'm going to dive in and help these guys. That's great but that's not you attracting them so the question is how do you attract them. So Oh if if you've got this team there that's not performing at a certain level that that drummer may be totally fine. He's totally within his right and spiritually okay. To just I choose to sit in the pews every Sunday and not be a part of your team. I think we often put pressure on musicians. who were sitting in the congregation? But there's a lot of reasons reasons why they may not be a part of the ministry but this could be one also is that it's not fun to make bad music and that's really easy way to put it. It's not fun to make bad music some some of that ties into how you use the musicians you do have like you mentioned. One of these people are just getting started with their ministry and one of the things the Great Duke Ellington used to I do Duke Ellington with one of the great leaders of the last century. And when you look at a Duke Ellington Big Band score which is you know thirteen to eighteen instruments. It doesn't doesn't say First Trumpet Trumpet. Third Trumpet instead. It says Cat Anderson Cudi Williams. It lists the names of the players and the reason is because when he would right music he would write based on knowing what each of those players could do and he would write that into the score. If you if you're arranging your music for the band that you have and you're expecting a bass player who you know is very limited only the plane a couple years and you're expecting them to play Some Heavy Duty Gospel base thing. They'll never sound good doing that. If you have an orchestra and you want to rate this great arrangement that has the trumpet. GOING UP TO HIGH DIS APPS and your trumpet player is a High School kid who can't can't play above a high. It's never going to sound good so knowing what you have and learning to arrange music for the players you have so that they sound the best west vacant sound. That's also a quality issue. It's to to put your band to serve up your band. In their best light. The second factor I would mention the fun on factor which we kind of talked about with the jam session thing but Let's face it any adult musician. Whose playing an instrument the you know when you're a kid you might be forced to play an instrument by your parents but anybody who chooses to play an instrument does it for one reason only and that's because it's fun and that's why any musician whose chosen it for a living? They chose it. Because it's fun because it's GonNa make them a ton of money so playing music is supposed to be fun and if your if being on your team isn't fun and there's a lot of aspects that go go with that. I don't mean throwing party every weekend. But if if it's a drag to the team because has your surly tired leader or your unorganized or the music is you know old and never changing or whatever it is that can make it on fun and you all know what those the things are. Those are things that have to change you as a leader are responsible for keeping the energy up of your team and that comes from making sure that they're having fun things like like the jam session things like doing special music. You know all these kinds of things that you can do. The third one is the leadership factor. Great Musicians are attracted to great leaders leaders plain and simple and there's a lot of things again that we're just we're just touching on but things that will make you a great leader and great musicians don't have to be led by somebody who's a better musician than them but they wanna be led by a great leader. That's really up on your role. That's all about your role. Miles Davis Avis was by all accounts. A horrible person in a lot of ways you know not a very pleasant person to be around but every great musician wanted to be in his band and they would drop anything they were doing to be part of his band because he knew how to lead them musically and get them to this level. And that's that's what great musicians want. is they want to be taken to the next level. So that's something you need to be doing as leaders and again a single leader who was. Let's say not a better not as good of a musician as me. Let's say and I go into a situation situation. I realize I recognize. He's not at my level yet or vice versa. If I'm the leader and somebody comes in and they're better than me you know just recognizing that that leader is somebody who's committed committed to growth and committed to improving and sees that as a value. All that kind of thing is is really important. And the last one is the creative fulfillment filming factor and so that idea of like give it turning over the an arrangement to in different musicians. So you're not the only person calling all the shots if there's more than one person on your team meaning not just you if there's two three four ten twenty people on your team that means you have that many creative minds and I believe everybody is creative. If we're if we're what's the very first thing we know God did we see the act of creation and then the next room. They tell us that were created in his image that that means every single human being is creative. So it's not just the musicians not just the artists. Everybody is creative because we're created in his image so when you have twenty people on entertained whatever the number is and and you're the only one calling all the creative shots that's a crime to me because there's all this creativity that's going unused so to start giving out that creativity. Here's a great quote. It's not for me. It's actually from Pastor Rick Warren he he said. And if you want to write this down it's a good one he said. When can you give authority with responsibility? You'll be amazed at the creativity of your people when you give authority with responsibility. You'll be amazed at the at at the creativity of your people so I love that because to give away the re the you know as the leader the creative authority is set in you. That's yours it's yours to a US and it's also yours to give it away so to give away creative control to a song to an arrangement to something giveaway that control now with that comes responsibility. Disability is let's say that Bass Player's GonNa Arrangement of a song. He has the responsibility of knowing your team knowing your congregation knowing what will work in there. There's responsibilities that come with with that but when you do that. And that's becomes a symbiotic relationship that way. You'll be amazed at how much creativity is on your team and to find. Find a way to unleash that. So here's a big thing musicians. I said everybody's creative musicians. Artists actors are hyper creative and so Musicians to attract musician to a musician. Who has the opportunity to join? Two different. Teams one of that has creative Fulfillment attached watch to it. They're going to choose that every single time so make sure that you are allowing for the creativity of well. I really appreciate what Tony shared with us today. And I love those simple points that we can use in our ministries to attract or even as he said go out and find more musicians and especially love is emphasis on going out into the highways and byways if you will and being a missionary into our community with musicians well thank you for joining us today. If you have a question you want us to answer your own podcast. Please email us at office at next level worship DOT com. We will do who are best to get your question answered.

Next level worship DOT COM and Click on the training tab and you will see more information you can find out about the intensive. Well let's get onto onto that session just this past week with Tony as he now answers the question for us. Why is quality important in our worship services? Each week you had asked if quality is important and I have a lot. I think the Bible has a lot to say about that. One of my favorite verses on the subject is First Corinthians fourteen seven where it says even in the case of lifeless things that make sounds such as the pie for the harp. How will anyone one know what toon is being played unless there's a distinction in the notes again? If the trumpet does not sound a clear call who will get ready for battle so I think there is a a huge responsibility on us as musicians that we need to sound clear call and I. I know for a fact this coming Sunday. A large number of churches are not going to be sounding very clear call musically and there'll be people in that congregation desperately need to be in church and need to hear that message who heard better music at the bar last night. You don't want the music to be in a bad enough that it's distracting from the message. That's I think that's really obvious. Obviously Veasley for me. It's not about everybody needs to be as good of a guitar player. Say Fill Kagan or as good of a drummer as how you name who it is but that we each individually have a responsibility to be our best and challenges every week when you show up to church. Are you able to say that. Not only only this Sunday. Am I giving my best God. But during the week in the preparation and in the Improving of my skill. Did I give my best to God. And I think that's again where a lot of us if we really honestly look ourselves myself included. That's not something I can answer. Yes to every week and that's where a lot of that definition comes uh-huh for me. It's not the God expects you to be the best guitar player. He expects you to be Your Best Guitar Player for where you are at your life in that moment with all the opportunity opportunity he has given you the time. You've had All of that that you're that you have used that to improve that skill. Here's the here's the great and a horrible thing about playing an instrument and that is that you will never ever master your instrument. None of us ever will Yoyo. Ma Has not mastered the show and so for as long as we live until our very last breath. There is always room for improvement on our instrument. Our voice whatever it. It is always room for improvement so I always challenged people especially those who are on staff are in leadership to ask yourself this question and ask it often am. Am I better now as a musician than I was when I took the job when you start really looking at that question and here's another way to ask that too. Will the people on my team would would they answer that. I'm a better musician now. Even if I'm the best musician on my team would they have seen a marked improvement in me. From the time they met me till now all in in terms of my skill my musical ability. My style's whatever. It is reading music so I feel that all of us who are in Music Ministry in leadership especially we have a responsibility to continually learn and grow and improve on our instruments we should be setting the example and setting the pace for continuing to take private lessons continuing to learn new harmony. Things New music theory whatever it is to continue to grow like who who who wants to sit under a pastor who stopped growing twenty years ago when he left seminary. None of us want that it should. It's the same with us as musicians. We have a huge responsibility ability to continue to grow on our instruments. And if you're in leadership you'd better be setting the bar high for the rest of your team 'cause that's the example that they have to look at and that one of the things I like about that verse talks about a clear battle. Cry From the trumpet. Is I love the story about Jericho and the and the priests this market marching around Jericho. I actually talked about that a lot in different classes. And it's a long story I like to talk about in a nutshell. The fact that the priests with the trumpets were in in front of the the army and they were the ones they were the only ones allowed to make a sound like what what an awesome role we have as musicians that we're the ones that are sounding ending the battle cry for this spiritual war and that's what that verse is talking about when it's talking about the warfare. That's that's US okay. I'm going to backtrack and I'm going to tell a little bit of the story. I like to tell oh so In this country Panama United States was trying to overtake Manuel Noriega this general dictator from there and he holed himself up the Vatican embassy and so we couldn't just go in and take him although we had all the firepower all the all the personnel to do that so we camped around around what he did is. They camped around the Vatican and surrounded it and they put loudspeakers on top of the tanks and the Humvees and just started blasting rock music towards the Vatican embassy incessantly nonstop rocking the cavs. Bottom what music. They are playing but just loud rock and roll twenty four hours a day constantly and part part of that was to jam the The communications but can you imagine. Being Noriega no inside the Vatican The embassy knowing that this army me is around surrounding you. And you're not gonna you can't sneak out but not only that they're taunting you with this music. Can you imagine hour after hour how it must have rattled your nerves. I well when I look at that story of Jericho. How Jericho where he was told? Don't go in. Yeah I'm going to give you the city but don't go into the city. Don't just go take it. You're going to camp out for seven days and you're going to march around with all the only sound. I want to hear his those trumpets blowing. Can you imagine being in the walls of Jericho of knowing you're surrounded by an army and all you hear. Is this these vultures of trumpets circling. You like how it must have rattled the nerves of the people in Jericho and when I apply that to that verse about US Getting Ready for warfare and getting ready for battle when we do that when we sound when we you make a sound on our instrument and the name of the Lord we're rattling the nerves of the enemy. What an incredible responsibility has been given to us when we're thinking like like? Oh we're just playing this happy little tune we're actually. We have the power to rattle the nerves of the enemy and let him know. This city is ours. We get to take this. God's odds going to win this and this this is the battlecry for that so that's who we are as musicians and if we're not taking that responsibility seriously like you think doc. Those trumpet players marched around Jericho had never picked up a horn. Or haven't been third for that We have a I think that this whole conversation for me starts with recognizing nizing the role we have as musicians and not subjugating just to some side thing that adds sparkle to a worship service or to a church morning service or or or just welcomes people in just is something for them to finish their coffee to what we do is incredibly meaningful in the kingdom. God makes that very clear here in scripture in how he uses music and so we have to embrace that when we start to embrace that it becomes a little less easy for us to just show show up Sunday without having touched our horn a week. You know I do like to set the table with that because that for me. If I'm working with the worship team I want that got to be the starting point like none of this matters. If you don't recognize who you are right now in the kingdom I have mostly harsh words for leaders because I feel like we we. We often let ourselves go unchallenged. And I think a lot of the issues of the problems that worship teams face stem from leadership. So I I love addressing you leaders because I think that's where the change and so when you say to go in and part that role or that type that type of spiritual significance that is our job as leaders is a we we need to impart that onto our teams. We need to set the bar for improving on our instruments. We need to be the ones showing up on time. We need need to be the ones who are organized. We need to be that you know the top of the Mar on all of these areas if we are leadership and that's where I would challenge any leader. It's it's like those you've got to be questioning yourself on all of these things constantly. Well that was a powerful Clarion call from Tony Guerrero to us us as worship leaders. Those of us who lead others in worship each week we will have Tony back again next week in our podcast to challenge us again as leaders of worship chip. Thank you for joining us today for the worship and a podcast. If you want us to answer a question that you have please submit your question at office at next level level worship DOT com.

"For individuals on your team daily asking that God would just bring us together. Asking that God would open open hearts that we'd be receptive and together. We would go where he wants us to go. And we would make the biggest impact we can as a team and as a worship ministry in our church in in our community and I believe that God can do that through us. That worship is so important vital in people's lives and we have to understand it and we have to see God with all that we have and it's going to lead us to a place where Rican love others. Serve people with all that we have and I'm excited about the the fruit of that and CNN minister now where we're going looking forward to that so those are some excellent points and things. We can all do to help change culture the the end and on our worship teams. Whether we've been in our church for six months like Jordan has or maybe six years what Jordan shared with us today especially the part about praying for our team that applies and can make a huge difference in any team going forward Jordan before we close at our time today. I would like you to tell us about out an idea. You shared with our coaching class. A couple of weeks ago in fact has resonated so much that in my coaching calls with our individual students. I've had a couple of them say and I really liked. What Jordan said about the mentoring pairs? Would you tell us about that. Yeah I can definitely talk about that here at the end of the summer My team team will have finished for your praise so now in the future moving forward when a person comes and wants to be a part of the worship team pure praise is going to be a part of that process and so I will pay the new person with a person. That's on the current team. That's already been through pure praise and I'll ask them to do that together. And my hope with data build some great relationship that it would help this new person feel invested in involved in the ministry and understand hand Some of these basic ideas about what worship is and why we do what we do. And it's also an awesome opportunity for current team members to invest into somebody somebody else and to have someone that they are actively mentoring and pouring into great love that idea so Jordan would you pray now over our listeners.

It's very customized. Just for you so you can focus on your team and get it alone with God and pull away and and hear what the Lord may be saying to you about how you can adjust your ministry for the next month in years to come so I can't can't build up enough.

He's a busy guy between his church work and this he he stays very busy Jordan not only helps us with missions. He's also an encourage her in our coaching program and from time to time. He's a guest in our classes. So Jordan welcome. Hey dwayne. It's great to be here with you today as well. I'm just looking forward to sharing a little bit today. And it was great to be in the coaching coaching class. Last week. Really really cool to see so many different people from different places all joining together online and August all kind of plug it for you real quick. If that's okay I I would love to invite anyone. That's interested in. Having some one on one coaching some Group Coaching coaching together where we can learn from each other. Definitely check out. What in L. W. is doing this coaching network is really neat? And I got to see it last week. Go see it before as well as a guest speaker before and it's it's just a really a really powerful thing and encouraging thing and I know that it will build you up and send you out to go and serve your church as a more equipped leader in a better place to serve all of your heart. Love God with all your heart to love others so definitely check out that coaching experience. And if you're interested in that I'm sure joined can hook you up. Oh thanks man. I appreciate that so I wanted to take just a snippet of that coaching class us. We talked for quite a long time. So one of the things that that I thought might be impactful to share. And it's just a thing that I've been trying to do in my own Ministry Mon Church and that's a build culture change and we talked extensively about it like I said but I wanted to highlight three things that I think are are important and things that I can do every week to build culture change range within my church in really within my worship team and and really figure out where we're going as a team and has shirt how we're going to accomplish that and so there's three things that come to mind when I think about how can I build. Culture change in the first is that I've got a cast vision to individuals. And that's only going to happen. Is I build relationships with individuals. That sounds good. Well how do you cast vision among your team so I cast vision to individuals that happens over lunches breakfasts Burger King that happens over Meetings meetings where we get to talk and sometimes that just happens through friendship As I build relationship with with the team that I'm working with and really get to know them even begin to love them into to serve them and to just realize that we're all doing this together as that relationship relationship forms and builds and you gotTa know that I've only been at my church for about six months and so that's a process that I'm trying to do a lot right now. As I build those relationships I can cast vision to individuals and I think as individuals pick up Where we're we're going it's really important to the overall of corporate vision and that's what I'll say next? So the second thing is not just talking to individuals. But I've got a cast division corporately and so one of the things. I'm doing right now as I tried to send out a weekly email really simple message by sent it to my whole group once a week and it just has some Some things and so. Maybe it has some prayer requests because I want to build a culture of Some team members that really genuinely care for one another and and support each other and so so I can throw some prairie some people in our team that that have some needs. I I can throw out some ideas of where we're going this coming weekend and our Sunday service. I can throw some things to be praying for For Church but but these emails wants wants a week. Just help us have this team unity and help us understand that. We're not just looking at ten years ahead but we're really weekly daily work in this out out and what are some things we can do this week. Try to send an email once a week. The second thing they're doing this summer as a group corporately with my team is to do a a Bible study together so we're using the book pure praise and it's a nine week study. It's GonNa take us just this summer to get through and so we just started that this week. Actually so we've been ramping up for that and getting ready for it this week we start up here. Praised Bible study and we have small groups that are going to be begin next week and they'll be talking about week one next week and so That's helping build this culture of change because I feel like we have to have a foundation Russian of God's word before we can really go anywhere and so we have to really understand what worship even is in the first place. We we have to do that as a team. So there may be individuals that feel really confident in that in there may be individuals that dull but as a team. We've gotta come together and really study. God's that's word figure out why we do what we do. And so I think corporately it's important for us to do things together Couple is doing that. Emails Bible Studies things that we can all do as a team as a group. The third thing that I have to do every week and really every day to build culture change in my ministry and Mike Churches to pray and that sounds Calica church word. It isn't so important it's so important. We have to be praying for our team. We have to be praying. For God's vision I I think it'd be so easy for me to come in the day for six months and try to go my own directions and do what. I think it'd be cool but I've got a really pray for God's Leading in every steps gotta be directed by him. So I've got to be praying for my team. I've got to be praying for God's vision and something that I've gotta do every day. Those are just some things that I'm doing right now to try to build culture change and you know depending on where you're at and what your culture is right now and where you WanNa go. Oh Man I just encourage you figure out some steps that you can do with individuals figure out some steps that you can take with your entire team as a group and and begin praying. Now for God's vision begin praying.
