Yesterday, I spent the day with the staff team at Pinelake Church in Jackson, Mississippi. It was one of two or three staff development days they do with their team each year. As you can imagine, it’s a lot cheaper for them to bring someone in like me to train their team than it is to send everyone to a conference someplace else. We learned a lot, and we had a lot of fun.
Here’s proof that we had fun. With about 45 minutes left in our time together, I challenged the worship leaders in the room to write a song about systems. That was one of the key topics we addressed yesterday. Katie the Worship Intern came through. We video recorded her work.
I think you’ll agree, Katie is about ready to become Internet famous…in the small circle of church leaders who embrace strategies and systems and like to hear music written on that topic.
