What are “Choice Resources”?

In a sentence, Choice Resources are selected resources which enhance corporate and/or personal worship.

Our NLW team selects resources each year to award and feature on our site. These awarded resources are not our own resources. They are from other authors and developers.

Three Criteria for Awards

Worship theology: Choice Resources instruct and/or encourage worship from the inside out (because we believe worship is inward, upward and outward).

Excellence: Choice Resources are exceptional in their quality and content.

Value: Choice Resources 1) bring much educational, inspirational and/or leadership help to an individual or team, and 2) have benefits which clearly outweigh the cost.
