Starting a Praise Band by Lance Winkler, Adam Hamilton

A practical, user-friendly, and low-budget guide to starting a praise band.

Looking for the opportunity to bring a change of music in your sanctuary? Does the idea of drums, keyboards, and electric guitars seem like something you want to try? Starting a Praise Band is indispensable as you take those first steps to introduce contemporary music—emotive and experiential—in your church.

Written with solid experience and knowledge in the contemporary music field for lay leaders and professional staff in mind, this guide will help your church bring in a different kind of worship as effortlessly as possible. Even if you already have a praise band, you’ll find valuable information on having an even better one.

The Abingdon-Church of the Resurrection Ministry Guides are the first choice for recruiting, motivating, and developing lay leadership for specialized ministries from A to Z—from adult ministries to ushering. Each inexpensive, 64-page Guide brings together Church of the Resurrection’s can-do attitude with Abingdon Press’s ministry of empowering church leaders. The result is a series that is user-friendly, encouraging, and most important, practical.

The passion to help churches experience how many things they can do to encourage participation drives these Ministry Guides.

Each Guide is concise, conversational, and current, full of ideas you’ll be able to implement immediately, with little or no budget. Recognizing that volunteers are busy people who work hard, the Guides will be the first place to turn when you’re new to a topic, to help you feel empowered, prepare quickly, and get up and running with confidence and creativity. You’ll find eye-catching icons and features that help you move directly to practical, fun, and effective solutions.
