Resources for Church Music

Here are some resources I would recommend for church music and worship.

To begin, make sure your church has a CCLI license: http://www.ccli.com.

It is worth buying a subscription to www.songdiscovery.com which includes a monthly listening CD & charts with a good variety of new worship songs and also includes the Worship Leader magazine.

You are probably familiar with the college-focused music of Passion (www.268generation.com or www.worshiptogether.com), which features Chris Tomlin, Charlie Hall, David Crowder, Matt Redman, Shane & Shane, Watermark, and more. You can find these albums everywhere.

I really enjoy the rich texts of Sovereign Grace music. You can order various albums from their website www.sovereigngraceministries.org/Resources/Music and download music charts for free as well. Most of their music is terrific!

Indelible Grace’s hope is to “help the church recover the tradition of putting old hymns to new music for each generation, and to enrich our worship with a huge view of God and His indelible grace.” You can order albums and download music charts from www.igracemusic.com.
