Lessons

SONGWRITING LESSONS

Songwriting is one of my favorite things to talk about. I've been writing songs for over 20 years and have learned a ton about the right and wrong ways to do things. I've also had the privilege of writing with some of the best corporate songwriters out there today and learned a great deal from them.

These lessons are primarily geared for writing corporate worship songs and are most effective when we can review something you've written or are currently working on. My goal is to help you strengthen your song but also to equip you with tips and tricks to make your future songs stronger as well.

We will discuss things like: 

Building a strong theme
Creating consistency in lyric & melody
Formulas for corporate songs
Where and how to find inspiration



 

LIFE COACHING
(with Matt and Carla)

Emotional health and self-awareness are two of the most important things a person can pursue to lead a happy and fulfilled life. It's also something that is not discussed very often, inside or outside of the church. Carla and I have had the privilege of sitting under incredible counselors and leaders over the last few years. We've learned a lot about ourselves and the importance of emotional health through the training we've received in pastoral counseling. Because of that, we've decided to offer life coaching sessions online. Our passion is to see people overcome fear and pain and find the true freedom and contentment that God has intended for all of us.

These sessions are geared toward bringing direction, clarity and healing to your life.

*These are joint sessions with Matt and Carla, unless otherwise requested in the booking process.

WORSHIP LEADER COACHING

There are so many facets to leading worship. It is much more than just picking out a few songs and singing them into a mic. Skill, knowledge and intentionality is required. Many, however, find themselves without training and without anyone to turn to for help.

If you feel like you are in over your head or are just looking to grow in skill and confidence, then I want to help you.

These sessions will focus on you and what you need to succeed where you are at right now.

Topics can include (but are certainly not limited to):

Pastoring and leading people
Prophetic and spontaneous worship
Building a healthy worship team
Leading a congregation effectively
Creating strong set lists
