This is it! This right here is the “meat and potatoes” of your live show. I work on developing the foundation of a performance more than anything else. My wife doesn’t like eating burritos when the tortilla splits open and all the filling falls out.

Regardless of the church size, there is one glaring similarity between a lot of churches I see. In my travels with music, I have visited numerous churches. A long lasting result of these visits is that I stay connected with different ministries by watching their live stream services. ...

Whether you realize it or not, the audience is a reflection of us onstage. When you’re performing or leading worship and you look out at the people, what do you see? Are they fully present with you? Are they singing their hearts out? Or does there seem to be a disconnect somewhere? ...
