NEW MONTHLY IN-PERSON EVENT! There’s a need for a RIGHTEOUS UPROAR in the heavens right now. For worshippers to take their place. To cry out for more of God – more wisdom, strength, insight, light! Many of us are in desperate need of a personal revival. We need to stand in the place of presence,…

God’s Word For 2023

You don’t have to be very prophetic to realise that 2023 is going to continue in the theme of disruption, shakings, pivotal changes and new alignments, as we wrestle our way into a new era with God.  With that in mind I would say making Psalm 23 the “go to” chapter may just help us…

How To Worship In The Spirit – Part 2

“It is we…who worship by the Spirit of God, who glory in Christ Jesus, and who put no confidence in the flesh” Philippians 3:3 This leads us onto the next interpretation of the vital verse from John 4 that tells us we should “worship in spirit”. Not only do we worship led by our spirits…

How To Worship In The Spirit – Part 1

“Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshippers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for they are the kind of worshippers the Father seeks. God is spirit, and his worshippers must worship him in spirit and truth” John 4:23-24 One of the primary factors to being a true…

Recapturing Your Zeal

Zeal is an overwhelming force. Psalm 22 states that “God is enthroned on the praises of Israel”. The word “praise” here doesn’t just mean singing a few nice songs, or thinking quietly about God. No, the word means “high” praise. Praise that is fervent, loud, passionate. God is not enthroned in any old worship. He…

Your Mouth Matters!

The first ingredient in the blueprint of a powerful worshipper is found in understanding the very make up of God himself, for we are made in his image. “So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him” Genesis 1:27 Man has been created in the image of God…

The False Worshippers Of The True God!

“…true worshippers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for they are the kind of worshippers the Father seeks.” John 4:23 God is looking for true worshippers. That implies that there must be false worshippers. People that worship the same God, the same Jesus, but their worship is false. They are not the kind…

How To Change A Worship Culture

Perhaps you are now thoroughly frustrated with worship as I have been! Perhaps many of the things I have shared in these first few chapters have rung true in your own heart. Perhaps, like many of those who attend my seminars, you would like to say “I’ve thought that for years. It’s nice to hear…

The Eight Great Myths Of Worship

Three signs in the previous chapters marked my initial journey in re-designing my own church worship for God’s presence. In subsequent years I have realised there were many other mis-conceptions, myths and fallacies in my thinking that affected my worship ministry. Subtly they may infect all our thinking, dulling God’s blueprint for hosting his presence…

When Worship Ministries Cause More Harm Than Good?!

In 1993 I was a worship leader and elder at a church of a hundred or so people in East Yorkshire. Seeing the signs of weakness mentioned in the previous chapter, my Minister and I discussed at length possible solutions. My response was simple, if a little radical. I believed the solution for us lay…

The Day Of The Small Church

I’ve always said I’d rather serve 10 churches of 100, than lead one of 1000. Here’s a few reasons why I personally prefer smaller churches to big: 1) The Need to be Known. People know and are known much more easily in smaller churches. When there’s hundreds of people to pastor, they are inevitably processed…

The Prophets of Frustration!

A recent survey revealed that “A majority of people leave church without feeling that they experienced God’s presence” and that “In a typical weekend, less that one-third of adults who attend services feel as if they truly interacted with God.” As I travel ministering, my personal feeling is that thousands of sincere, God fearing individuals…

An Era of Glory is Coming

Moses had risen early that morning and set out on the long journey up Mount Sinai, as God had commanded. Just the day before he had asked God “Show me your glory”. God had responded:  “I will cause all my goodness to pass in front of you” and had sent him up the mountain for…

The Day I Was TRANSFORMED in Africa!

Today was the day my worship ministry would change forever and I didn’t even know it. I woke at 6.30am to the sounds of zebra and warthogs munching stubs of grass in the garden outside. Peering wearily across the African plain from our lodge, I suddenly remembered we were due at Rita’s morning prayer meeting…

What Is God Doing Right Now?

Jarrod Cooper shares some thoughts about global events in this remarkable time. “Some things broke my heart but fixed my vision” – Anon I know of no period in my lifetime, when the following passage has seemed more relevant globally, how about you? “See to it that you do not refuse him who speaks. If…

Releasing Children Into The Gifts Of The Spirit

In order to see children grow in the gifts of the Spirit, we need to bring them alongside us in ministry and life, with the hope that one day they will go further than us – just like Joshua ultimately took God’s people further than Moses could. This means teaching them how to worship and…

“It’s Not About Failing, it’s about Unveiling”

One thing God has spoken so clearly to me during these recent troubling and difficult times, with tricky decisions, frustrating complexities and daunting challenges, is that He has NOT brought us to this place to fail. I’ll say it again: He has NOT brought us to this place to fail. On Sunday 9th February 2020,…

Unusual Collaborations Breaking Out In The Church

In this coming era we are seeing the Church grow up from mere unity events, and good friendships (both good in their own way!) to a place of real collaboration. God is joining churches together! But what is more I think He is going to join churches with businesses and churches with local councils. He’ll…

Prophetic Dream Coming To Pass

On the night of 14th December 2020 I had a dream. In the dream I was leading a church service from the stage, with many in attendance. As I was about to announce the guest speaker, hundreds began to leave the service from the rear of the hall. Rapidly, they streamed out in droves, leaving…
