Worship Resources List

I was working on this list for a couple of camps I’m teaching this summer. I know there are a bajillion resources on the internet. These are the ones I personally use the most. Roughly in order of importance to me.

Planning Center
planningcenteronline.com
This is the “hub” for worship planning at most churches I know of. It’s pretty powerful. You can make a schedule, communicate with people, upload chord charts, mp3s and videos.

Worship Together
worshiptogether.com
A great place for encouragement, interviews with songwriters, instructional videos, and chord charts.

calebnei.com
calebnei.com/emmaus/chords
Yes, I’m hawking my own website. But, you’re welcome to any of the chord charts for the songs we do at my church. Also, you might find my collection of Calls To Worship useful: calebnei.com/calebnei/come-and-worship.

Worship Musician Magazine
christianmusician.com
I’ve just subscribed to this magazine, but it looks pretty good, though I can’t say for sure.

Song Discovery and Worship Leader Magazine
songdiscovery.com and worshipleadermedia.com
I definitely recommend a subscription to Worship Leader Magazine and Song Discovery. The magazine is just what you’d expect. Song Discovery is a collection of the latest worship music on CD each month. (Chord charts included.)

CreationSwap
creationswap.com
Artists share royalty-free stock photos, church bulletins, sermon art, logos and more.

YouTube
Don’t have money to buy the DVDs from Musicademy or Leadworship.com? You can find instruction for almost any song you can imagine. Some channels to check out:

I’m sure there are more. If you find some you love, let me know.

Igniter Media
ignitermedia.com
My favorite site for purchasing artfully done still and video backgrounds for projected lyrics. Also, a great source for short, seasonal videos.

ProPresenter
renewedvision.com
The best presentation software. Much more powerful than trying to use PowerPoint.

Musicademy
musicademy.com
A great resource for instructional DVDs. From beginner to advanced.

Leadworship.com
leadworship.com
This is Paul Baloche’s site. He has great insight as a worship leader. Also, I recommend is instructional videos.

Christian Musician Summit
christianmusiciansummit.com
Get training, either at an event, or by ordering instructional DVDs.

PraiseCharts
praisecharts.com
When you need more than chord charts check this out. Full sheet music arrangements. You can buy charts for as big a band as you might need. (Brass, strings, etc.)

Worship Matters
worshipmatters.com
I have several friends that really like this one.

Caleb
Caleb
Caleb Nei is the Worship Arts Director at Emmaus Church in Berryville. He also teaches at least 40 piano lessons each week, is a member of the band Stereoreel, plays piano jazz at a couple of restaurants when Stereoreel isn’t playing, has three children, one wife and loves where God has him. He has a degree in church music from Huntington University and has studied jazz at Shenandoah University. He has no additional hobbies because he’s one of those people who have been able to get a job doing what he’d do for free anyway.
