Worship Matters – 7.27.08

I’m late in writing this post but just had to share about an experience that Kim and I had on Sunday, July 27, 2008. This was a really special day for the traveling piece of our ministry, Tabor Ministries. We had been invited to share 2 morning worship concerts at Madison Park Church of God in Anderson, IN. This is really a leading church in that denomination with a tremendous pastor (Jim Lyon) and a Worship Pastor (Steve Williamson) who has been very gracious to our ministry over the years. Steve has also been a mentor to me and we were very excited to head to Anderson to share with their congregation.

One of our dreams has been to travel with a live band. We have been praying about that and decided that this would be a great day to give it a shot. So, we called on some very special guys to go with us. Let me tell you that these guys absolutely rocked the house! It was amazing to work with them. They added such excellence to our worship and we hope the Lord will provide the resources to take them with us all the time! The boys in the band are: Terry Hayes (guitar), Don Zlaty (Hammond B3 & Keys), Tom Janke (bass) and Tim Gee (drums). 

As we continued to pray about this day, we also felt led to extend the invitation to our choir to join us for the morning. So, more than 40 of them traveled to Anderson on their own to help us lead in worship. It was an awesome team building experience and they knocked it out of the park.

I am so grateful that my team gets that our ministry has 2 facets. I am grateful that they don’t simply tolerate this part of our ministry but that have wholeheartedly embraced it. I will never take that for granted!

We shared a song in Anderson that has become very special to Kim and me and also to our church family. It’s a song of declaration that reminds us of God’s providence, love and care. I’ll close with some of the lyrics to Miriam Webster’s amazing song, “Made Me Glad”:

You have made me glad, and I’ll say of the Lord, You are my Shield, my Strength, my Portion, Deliverer, my Shelter, Strong Tower, my very present Help in time of need!”

    It was awesome to be able to be a small part of that day! Thank you for the opportunity of serving with you and Kim.

    Made Me Glad is also becoming a favorite of Denise and mine. It has such an awesome message!
