All Praise was never created to force members to devote large amounts of time without compensation. The purpose of All Praise is, and has always been, to use the knowledge base of pastors, worship leaders and teachers to consult churches towards excellence – not to become a stable of worship-leaders-for-hire.

I felt it was an important enough move within the All Praise structure to let all AP Members know about this change. My wife and I feel it’s time to start being compensated for the work that requires so much time and effort from me and my family.

As far as the services received by the church I’m leading, nothing changes. Anything outside of Worship Leading will still be administered by and billed through All Praise Ministries, while the Worship Leading services will be billed by me directly.

As a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, we want to keep any and all financial decisions made about how your money is spent 100% transparent and available for your review.

Thank you for trusting us with your time, money and efforts. And most importantly, thank you for your continued support through prayer.

The Kind of Worshipper God Wants

September 9, 2011 in Featured, Uncategorized

John 4:23-24

Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks. God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in spirit and in truth.”


Those of us who are saved worship God. But how many of us worship Him the way He requires us to worship Him? According the scripture, God clearly wants us to worship Him in Spirit and in Truth.


To worship in spirit, we must stay connected to The Holy Spirit through prayer and communion with Him. To worship Him in Truth, we must know the truth. To know the truth, we must read His Word and Pray daily so He may reveal to us the truth we need to worship Him.


Wow! Are you showing up on Sundays to sing, praise and worship God after a week of not reading the bible, listening to or talking to God? If so, you are not the kind of worshipper God is looking for.


Today, make a commitment to stay connected to The Holy Spirit through prayer, and to know His truth by reading God’s Word. Otherwise, your worship is worthless and fruitless.

Pastors, Unite!

SCRIPTURE: Matt 9:37-38
He said to His disciples, “The harvest is great, but the workers are few. So pray to the Lord Who is in charge of the harvest; ask Him to send more workers into His fields.”

Jesus was speaking to believers. To men he had chosen to do His work. Today, it would be you and me – pastors and leaders. What He’s telling us is that we need more of US to do His work. We should be praying that God will send more people like us to lead the lost to Him. Yet, I meet with pastors all the time who are reluctant to partner with other local churches. Many of them view other churches as threats to their own success. It’s sad, but it’s real.

Today, when I pray for more people to work the fields, I will also pray for the pastors who feel threatened by them.

Father, you are so great and awesome! I am honored that You would call me to help bring more people to know You. May I never take that task lightly. I also ask that You give me the right words to say to the many pastors I encounter and help them begin seeing other pastors as allies. My prayer is that we can all work together as one to do what You have called us to do; work the fields and bring more people to You! I love You, God. I can’t imagine my life without You in the driver’s seat. Thank you for the many blessings in my life. I am so unworthy and yet so grateful. Amen.
