Worship. Thousands of songs, playlists on Spotify, and countless books have been written on the subject. It’s a topic churches wrestle with, but what is true worship? Are there different types of worship? Would it surprise you to know it’s more than music and a "me-and-Jesus" moment?
Jonathan welcomes Matt Merker, a leader in corporate worship. You may know him from songs like, “He Will Hold Me Fast,” “I Will Wait for You (Psalm 130),” and “Christ Our Hope in Life and Death”. Matt's hymns have been recorded by artists including Keith and Kristyn Getty, Shane & Shane, Sandra McCracken, Sovereign Grace, and more.
Matt serves as the Director of Creative Resources and Training for Getty Music. He served on the pastoral staff and as an elder of Capitol Hill Baptist Church in Washington, DC. He also has recently released a new book, "Corporate Worship: How the Church Gathers as God's People".
In this episode of Candid Conversations, Jonathan and Matt take a deeper look into worship as the gathered body of Christ.
As you listen today, may you be encouraged to gather in Biblical community to worship!
