More from Worship Leader Laura Story

In the following video, Laura Story and her husband share their testimony of God’s faithfulness through difficulty:

Worship Leader/Songwriter Laura Story

Once an aspiring symphony orchestra conductor, Story didn’t even know she could sing – much less write songs – until she was in her early twenties.

The start of Laura Story‘s life in music & God’s call on her life reminds me of my own story, at least thus far, as a flutist being turned into a worship leader & wondering how God will glorify Himself next…

Laura Story wrote the worship song Indescribable (also recorded by Chris Tomlin), and can currently be heard singing Mighty To Save (Hillsong) on Christian radio.

Next week she’ll be leading in worship at the choral festival I’m attending & I look forward to it. I love hearing what God is doing & has done in His children’s lives!

What Are You Doing for Easter?

What are you doing for Easter & during this Easter season at your church, with your small group, or even with your family to honor Christ & worship Him during this time?

What music or drama specials are planned, or special events or services at your church?

Print Music Resources?

So, this is a question for any worship leaders & ministers of music out there.

What resources do you use to get printed music for your ministry (printable via online sources or not; chord charts, lead sheets, choral arrangements & anything else)?

I know many use CCLI, as does our church, but want to know what other resources are used by those of you either instead of or to supplement it.

I look forward to your input!

Leading Worship – Vocally & Instrumentally

This is a post requiring responses from those women worship leaders out there! 🙂

When leading worship services, do you lead in vocals only (with others covering the instruments), by playing guitar, piano, a combination of any of these, or something else entirely?

who are we? a.

We here at Women in Worship thought it would be good to introduce ourselves to other members, readers & the like. I thought I’d go ahead & start!

I have been a Christian of nearly a year now, & I’m involved in my church’s music ministry in various ways. We hold both traditional & contemporary worship services. I currently lead our traditional service & choir. In the contemporary service (praise team & band), I bounce between singing, flute & piano/keys depending on what is needed.

God has put a desire in my heart to serve in worship ministry, especially as I grow in my relationship with Him. With my training in music, the skills I’ve honed as a musician are immensely important, & now I feel that God is teaching me what it means to be a musician in the Kingdom as I serve & worship Him in all aspects of my life!

I am extremely passionate for God — I can’t get enough of Him, & want to serve Him in any way I can. I’m still learning, but I want to live for the Almighty Redeemer who saved my life!

I love to read, write, do photography, & of course, play & write music. I’m currently starting to write songs & compose music more than I used to, whenever the opportunity allows.
