This past weekend, I led worship with several guys from our worship band for our annual Men’s Retreat. This year our theme was ‘Momentum’, we met at Young Life’s Lost Canyon camp and our speaker was Don Worcester. There were around 200 men at the retreat from 5 different churches which brought a very cool energy to the meetings.
It was powerful to be in the middle 200 men singing their hearts out in full-on worship of their Savior. There were even a couple moments as the men sang that the band was no longer leading, but following the lead of the worshippers in the room…amazing!!!
It was also a privilege to be around guys wanting to see God move in every part of their lives, and to have a band that was there to serve the men and connect with Jesus. Below are the songs that we led this weekend:
Overcome – A (kind of our theme song for the weekend)
The Stand – A
Let It Rise – E
Everlasting God – B
Jesus Paid It All – A
My Savior Lives – G
Mighty To Save – G/A
Savior – A
Amazed – D
Awesome Is The Lord Most High – G
Revelation Song – D
Your Grace Is Enough – G
Holy Is The Lord – G
Here I Am To Worship – G
Be Thou My Vision – E (with new chorus by Andy Allen, recording not yet available)
I’m praying that the times of worship we encountered on this retreat will infiltrate our weekend services, and that we will begin to see a shift in how people engage God as we sing and praise in our community worship.
If you were at the retreat, comment and let us know what you saw God doing.
God Bless –
