IMPACT helps flow of worship

In the May 2003 issue of Baptist Life, Rick Muchow, pastor of magnification at Saddleback Church in Lake Forest, CA, explained that "Music is not worship itself, but a tool to worship." In order to provide an effective flow for Saddleback's weekend services, he uses the acrostic IMPACT:

IM stands for Inspirational Movement, or an energetic song of praise. "In order to wake up the Body of Christ, we have to wake up the body," Muchow says.

P stands for Praise song, which is a song sung about God in the third person.

A stands for Adoration, a praise song sung to God

C stands for Commitment, with songs like "I Worship You" or "I Surrender All"

T stands for Tie it all together, using a song "that summarizes the group's worship of the Lord, sung in the collective third person.
