Your Song of Victory

"...speaking to one another with psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit. Sing and make music from your heart to the Lord, always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ" Ephesians 5:19-20 (NIV)

There is nothing like an atmosphere of faith! When the church of Jesus Christ gathers in unity, there is a supernatural stirring of hope through songs that exalt God and encourages one another. One of the greatest characteristics of our Renew Worship Nights is the atmosphere of worship, faith, and miracles.  Sometimes people just need to be reminded and encouraged that God is still with them! Their is a manifestation of courage that rises in people as they are reminded of God's love towards them. Our teams focus is to point people back to the One that guarantees "Times of Refreshing". I've found that in my lowest moments of life, a song of victory and hope refocused my attention to God and His word, and brought me through the circumstance stronger than I was before, and helped me experience personal revival!

Our world is inundated with songs! Song’s of hope, faith, heartbreak, rebellion, sin and confusion. The power of a song can transform ways of thinking and living. Many of life's major moments can be drenched in the aroma of a song that was present in that season. A song can be powerful! We must also realize that God loves song’s, He gave us this creative expression for the purpose of communicating life in beautiful melodies. In fact, Zephaniah 3:17 says…”He will rejoice over you with joyful songs.”  Many different songs can exalt either good or bad, however, we as the church have been instructed to use songs for the purpose of worship, encouragement, love and joy. We're also encouraged to use our songs to communicate the realities of life, loss and fear (as David did), and to encourage and strengthen each other, but more importantly, to give our gratitude and worship to our Creator. Our songs need to be filled with victory, hope and expectancy, knowing that God is our Strong Tower! Psalm 96 says... "Sing to the Lord a new song; Sing to the Lord, all the earth. Sing to the Lord, bless His name. Proclaim good tidings of His salvation from day to day". 

We are all singing something. There are songs resonating in all of us! So my question is this... "What songs are you singing today?" Are you singing songs of defeat and sorrow? Or are you singing songs of life and hope?

Let me encourage you...

Remain in the place of intimacy with God. That is the place where God will exchange your song of defeat and sorry with His songs of life and joy. Sing a prophetic song that speaks of God's destiny for you, and let that song be filled with melodies that exalt Jesus while promoting hope and trust in God.  

Lastly, Sing songs to others that encourage, strengthen and push them into greatness. You are an overcomer, you are victorious, you are redeemed, you are loved!! This is your new SONG today!

God of the Impossible

We serve the God of the IMPOSSIBLE!

"Jesus looked at them and said, 'with man this is impossible, but not with God; all things are possible with God'" (Mark 10:27, NIV)

This year has been an incredible walk of faith for myself and our ministry. We've ventured out to serve in the capacity in which God has called us, and it's awesome! Through all the days of serving the body of Christ, I must say that the greatest moments of ministry are the moments when God does the impossible! I love when the Lord makes a "roadway in the desert, and rivers in the valley.." (Isaiah 43:19). 

I want to encourage you to believe God for greater levels of His presence, more encounters with His miraculous plan for your life! Perhaps you're facing an impossible situation today, maybe you received a negative diagnosis or bad report, an unexpected setback or circumstance that has shook your foundation. I encourage to stand and believe in the God of the impossible! He will never leave you or forsake you, trust Him! Our team is praying with you, that the God of the impossible would invade every area of your life, so that your testimony would be..."only God could do these miraculous things in and through me, not my power or strength, but His!"

Thank you for all your love and support with our ministry, music and resources. So many things to come!

We're praying with you!

God bless,

Greg Armstrong

3 Essential Ingredients To a Great Worship Leader

As I've been recently reflecting on what makes a worship leader thrive and grow, I decided to list 3 "Must Have's" for a worship leader. If we master these 3 foundational steps, we'll be well on our way to creating great God moments in our services.

1. Passion for God and His Presence - With the rise of the worship music culture, It’s easy to stuff “worship” in the confines of a genre, however, it’s from the heart of an individual who has been with Jesus that the power to connect God and song comes easily. Let's make a commitment to know HIM! That's why we are here!

2. Passion for God’s People - If we find ourselves having the desire ONLY for people to hear us sing and play, we're missing a precious opportunity to see others connect with God. Our desire needs to be that peoples hearts would burn for more of Him. We direct them to His goodness and healing, always being cautious to not take glory for the moments that are created.

3. Passion for God’s Word - Worship leaders are not simply leading songs, we are Pastoring people through an experience with God, through music. We need to remain FULL of HIS word in order to speak only TRUTH through our songs.

Lets change the world!
