LiFT Worship Band – Debut Album

A few years back, (more than a few – but I’m not willing to admit that yet) I was a student at a college in the midwest, where we had this group that I sang in called the University Chorale. It was a great experience, one that I remember fondly to this day. Singing in that choir gave me some of my best musical experiences, it also gave me some friendships that continue to this day. Trevor of the Lift Worship Band was in that chorale at the same time as me. We got to know each other a little, but unfortunately not as much as I would have liked. Regardless of all that, I’m pleased to announce to you the release of self-entitled Debut album by The LiFT Worship Band.

Artist Development – Photography Team

When we first started, I simply publicized the possibility to our congregation and we had three or four photographers express interest. That’s one of the big benefits of this team, there are already people in all of our churches that have an interest in photography. Of course there will be varying skill levels, but there are photographers in all of our churches. Parents who love taking good pictures of their kids, teens who are taking photography classes in high school, art majors in college even professionals who have a lot to offer. So, why a photography team? Don’t we have enough to manage in other areas of the Worship Ministry? Event Photography. One of the easiest and most obvious ways to put a photography team to use is to offer their skills to yours an other ministries in the church to photograph events around the church. It gets your ministry great exposure and it documents the event for the other ministry. We have a form that people can fill out on our website, asking for a...
