Beyond the Music
- Thursday, April 03, 2003
The combination of the visuals and the artistically displayed lyrics make iWorship ideal for every worship scenario—from small home groups to mega-church environments.
This is a feature that worship leaders and other people in ministries find especially attractive. Lynann Rayborn and her husband, Bill, are the publishers of The Church Music Report in Grapevine, Texas, a publication that focuses on serving music ministers and choir directors. Says Lynann: “I have become something of a worship leader in our Sunday school class, but I don't even play the piano. iWorship is exactly what I need to lead a brief time of worship before the lesson, and I am so incredibly excited about it.”
Jesus was a top-notch communicator. He used parables, word pictures, and stories to reach His audience and hold their attention. He spoke of their lives and related to them at their level, and on terms that they could understand. There’s no doubt that visual worship is the wave of the future, but it’s also worship music that goes far beyond the song list, and it stands to become a totally new worship experience perfect for people who are hungry for something new. It can speak to us—and all for whom the message of the Gospel was intended—on a level that we can all understand.
