The importance of technology
Part of this post-pandemic reality is the importance of using technology to elevate the church experience. He described his favorite part about this business has been seeing church leaders be willing to use technology to reach into the home. “You can reach a million by a click of a button.” Jeremy believes technology has opened the door to reach much farther than just our four walls and teaches churches to embrace this exciting opportunity.
A worship team’s encouragement
With Jeremy’s consultation, he encourages worship teams to be both spiritually involved and musically engaged. “We have to think of worship as a ministry, not a gig.” Ministry offers the opportunity for life change, whereas a gig is in and out. He always encourages his musicians to have a lifestyle of prayer and to care for the people they minister to.
Post-pandemic, rehearsals became scarce, zoom rehearsals are common, and self-practice is required. Now more than ever before, knowing the music before a Sunday service requires much self-discipline. “YouTube is an excellent resource to learn music, no excuse not to stay sharp.” Jeremy expects his musicians to be willing to put in the work to reach excellence.
