* I have just listed a few places to purchase the music.  There are many other websites as well, so feel free to shop around or to use your favorite music supplier.

I would especially like to draw your attention to the song “We Speak to Nations.”  In the past, we have used a sing-along style video of this piece created by Integrity worship.  This is a phenomenal arrangement of the song with inspirational graphics, lyrics and the full band accompaniment.  Your church will love it. 

You can watch it here:

Parlez Vous Francais?


 Parlez Vous Francais?

Today’s post is meant to be used in a Mission Festival service.  At these Mission-themed services, we like to pick a Country where we have Mission workers and focus part of our worship on that culture.  Often times, we’ll try to get the Missionary serving in that land to guest preach.

 

Paul Baloche is a very generous worship leader and Pastor.  He offers most of his music available for free at his website:  http://leadworship.com.  However, if your church has a CCLI license, I would recommend that you report any of his music that you use.

 

I’d like to bring the song “Praise Adonai” to your attention.  Paul has recently released a version of this great song with the lyrics in French.  Even if your band or choir has no French speaking members, I recommend that you give this a try.  It’s an excellent practice to sing in another language as it does wonders to focus your singers on proper diction.  Paul has three resources available to help you including:

 

An Mp3:

Help your people to realize that the very God whom we worship week after week in English is also being worshiped all over the entire world.

Our Synodical website also has some wonderful resources for Mission services.  Here’s the home page:
