“Christian” Music vs. “Secular” Music

September 24, 2008 at 4:06 am (Uncategorized) (, , , )

I’ve been a music director at Cross Point Community Church for a little over two years now. I love my job, but I’ve discovered that I have no influence with people other than Christians. To remedy this, I’ve recently started playing music in bars again.

I’m not playing “Christian” music in the bars; I’m playing “secular” music.

As a side note, I really don’t feel that God cares what kind of music I play as long as I do it to the best of my abilities. All music can be worship music. I played with my 90’s cover band last Monday night a worshiped all through “Round Here” by Counting Crows.

But the important thing is that I’m getting to know more people outside of church. I’m having influence with people outside my circle.

Do you have influence with non-Christians?

A Concert In Church?

July 29, 2008 at 12:14 pm (Uncategorized) (, , , )

I used to hate when people would tell me that our church services felt like a “concert.” They’d tell me it was too loud and too rocking. (Most of these people’s reference to concerts came from seeing artists like Kenny G)

But now I don’t get offended.

In fact, I hope it sounds like a concert in church.

But, not a concert for the congregation, it’s a concert of worship to our Lord.

We’re there to honor and praise God. Let’s make it loud. Let’s join our voices and instruments to make a wonderful noise to our Saviors ear.

Any thoughts or opinions?
