AVERAGE EVERYDAY WORSHIP LEADER

This is a podcast for the worship leader serving the local church - not the famous guy or girl with a record deal. Not the person with a paid band and a budget comparable to a small country. This is for the regular guys and gals who consider themselves "average." And hopefully, listening to this show will help you get better at what you do.

Amazing story of God's faithfulness in the worst of times.

Mar 6, 2017

The secret sauce of singability! So important in writing for your congregation.

Mar 1, 2017

We're back! Well, Todd is back. Anthony was off doing something dumb. Vlogging, probably. Two parts to this episode: first, we hear from listeners about IEMs and then we listen to Todd's keynote talk from a worship training night at Anthony's church.

(Anthony also put together a video of the talk that we'll be sharing at the AEWL Facebook page. If you'd rather look at Todd than just listen. LOOK I GET IT I AM VERY HANDSOME.)

Feb 21, 2017

In this new episode, we talk about songs we're doing, the kind of prayer God will say yes to and the recent Hillsong movie. 

Feb 18, 2017

Over halfway done! Audio from the Facebook live I did on "how to teach your songs." It actually DOES help to think about how you're going to share the songs you write!

Feb 14, 2017

This is audio taken from a new thing I'm doing on Facebook Live. Over five videos, I'm hoping to encourage worship leaders out there who want to write worship songs but don't know how to get started.

Part 2 is called PARTS! Next time, we'll talk HOW TO TEACH YOUR SONG.

Feb 12, 2017

In this episode, we pull right from the blog over at www.bethelsongs.com and talk about ways you can be sure and lead with excellence when you're NOT the regular worship leader. We also introduce a brand new segment called CONTROVERSIAL THOUGHT!

Feb 10, 2017

This is audio taken from a new thing I'm doing on Facebook Live. Over five videos, I'm hoping to encourage worship leaders out there who want to write worship songs but don't know how to get started.

Part 1 was on OBSTACLES and the next video will be called PARTS.

Feb 6, 2017

This week, Todd gets mad at Anthony for a podcast recommendation then talks about stirring up trouble on Facebook. After that, the guys hit four questions from the mailbag before Todd's story for the week. And of course, we wrap up the show with a little "Will Todd Hate This" regarding patriotic church services!

Ross King is a good friend and songwriting mentor who just released a brand new album called WE KNOW HOW THIS THING ENDS. And what's the point of having a very successful podcast if you can't help promote your friends??

Jan 23, 2017

In this episode:

  • Todd gripes about his dog.
  • Anthony and Todd answer questions.
  • We debut a new theme song.
  • Todd gets grumpy (again.)

Special thanks to Brad Wofford for our "Will Todd Hate This" theme music. Check out some of Brad's work at www.soundcloud.com/bradthedesigner.

Had a blast on this episode, especially our new segment - WILL TODD HATE THIS?
