Insight 285: FaithSoaring Churches Have a Quality Praise Band
Congregations seeking to transform, utilizing a contemporary worship service as one strategy, have a quality praise band. They do not fall into the trap of having the traditional praise band with the stereotypical instruments–keyboard, drums, and three guitars. Those congregations who do are typically trying to emulate a pattern they have observed in congregations begun as contemporary churches.
This emulation approach seldom works for congregations who add a worship service with some dimension of contemporary style. These services too often come across as service that appeals to the Boomer generation who are not all at least 50 years old.
