5 Favorite Worship Songs Of 2016

5 Favorite Worship Songs Of 2016

“How often should I introduce new songs?”

“How should I choose which new songs to lead?”

“What are some new songs you’re doing?”

In my conversations with worship leaders I hear these kind of questions a lot.  Hopefully these are questions you’re asking.  

As worship leaders, songs are the primary vehicle we use to honor God, celebrate Jesus, express thanksgiving, shape theology, and pursue our Savior’s Presence.  Choosing and leading songs takes careful and prayerful consideration.  

The Worship Leaders and I at Calvary Monterey introduced 13 new songs to our church family this year.  An average of just over one a month.  This seemed to be a pace for us.  Not too many to overwhelm but enough to avoid over repetition. 

All the songs we introduced were strong but there were a few that stood out as favorites for our team and church.  

From the songs we introduced, here are my 5 Favorite Worship Songs of 2016.  

What A Beautiful Name - Hillsong Worship

Alive In You - Jesus Culture 

The Lights - The Royal Royal

Great Is Our God - Young Oceans (feat. All Sons & Daughters)
