Rise Up And Sing Giveaway and Review

Practical advice and encouragement to help you Rise Up and Sing!

Rise Up and Sing by Lex Buckley is both practical and inspirational - designed to help you discover your call, work with musicians, pastor a worship team, write songs, and work effectively with your fellow worshippers, including your pastor and bandmates.

Sharing from the Bible and from her heart, Lex Buckley write to encourage you, empower you, equip you, and provide practical help with all aspects of leading worship. Invaluable advice from worship leaders and songwriters Beth Redman, Christy Nockels, and Kathryn Scott helps this book fill the role of the female mentor you need and probably don't have.

Rise Up and Sing will help you lead with confidence, secure in the knowledge that there is a role for women to lead worship and pastor a worship team.

Women are being called to lead worship in larger numbers than ever before, but many may feel ill equipped to do so. Buckley recognizes the unique challenges that women face as they enter positions that have been held primarily by men for many years. She offers practical, down-to-earth advice for women who feel called to lead in this area of church ministry.

Drawing from the Bible, her heart, and her own experiences, Buckley begins by defining the many areas of worship ranging from worship leader and musician to worship team pastor and songwriter. She defines each role and discusses the differences that exist between men and women within these positions. She wants women who feel called to serve as worship leaders to be confident in their ability to lead and offers practical suggestions on songwriting, how to work with a worship band, and even ways to recruit members for and pastor a worship team.
