#Orange09

So, as a former intern at Bigstuf and enjoying all the information brought by Reggie and the laughs that Lanny would always create, I’m excited to see the ideas and new things that come out of Orange Conference this year. So, here are the break-outs I’ll be checking out and why:

Breakout A: Orange-ology: The Teen Years- Part 1… Why? I work with students who I’m helping to lead people in worship and I could use having some more insight on students
Breakout B: OrangeOlogy: The Teen years- Part 2… Why? Same reasons as above 😀
Breakout C: INFLUENCE: Moblizing the Next Generation… Why? This is what I do and I want to know how to do it better. We have 26 students in various worship bands that lead worship for middle and high schoolers and have led worship for over 8,000 at our 15th year anniversary. I want them to be awesome at what they do!
Breakout D: MESSAGE: The Art of Producing a Sunday Experience… Why? Looking for ways to better connect our students during worship.

So there you go. I’m excited about meeting a lot of folks I have connected with in twitter in real life, and excited to see how God will bring the team I am a part of closer together.

Everywhere I Go

We had fun covering Lincoln Brewsters new single “Everywhere I Go”
This was a fun night especially with some different folks from high school playing in the band. The reason we created the “Varsitybad(s)” youtube page is because it’s GROWING bigtime. We have an audition in a couple of weeks that is somewhere around 16-20 kids auditioning for different parts. I’m very excited to see God grow this ministry in such a huge way and using students to lead in worship and getting skills they will need when they head off to college.

You will probably see very soon the middle school band, that’s right it’s led by middle schoolers, doing a special night of leading worship for the High Schoolers! Let me tell you they are just as good as these guys! God is doing huge things in the ministries at Brookwood and this is just one of them!

Rain Down Varsity

It was a cool night at Varsity. It was especially cool singing this song after we had talked about Christ calming the storm. The students had just made some commitments to find out what is keeping them from keeping their eyes on Christ, and spent some time talking with the adult leaders at the front of the stage in tears prayer. It was a great night and it’s amazing to see how God is using everyone involved to influence and change students lives!

These guys are amazing, and I love seeing what God is doing in their lives.

Songs We Sing

The Student Bands at Brookwood for Varsity and Wired have been blessed over and over with more students and more talent. I just wanted to share some videos of songs we have done. This is some of our high schoolers leading in worship for other high schoolers, and to me that is just a crazy cool thing! God is big and has some huge plans for this ministry and it’s a fun ride never knowing what’s next.

Spring of Life-Kristian Stanfill

Hallelujah- Paramore

Our God is Love- Lee Mcderment

First up we have the Varsity Band on youtube. The Wired band youtube page is coming as well! Anywho, if you’d like to keep updated on the videos from Varsity, Brookwood Church high school ministry, full of crazy cool lights, fun songs and all that jazz. If you’d like to subscribe on youtube click HERE Here is the first video of one of our favorite songs to do, although we do it very seldom now. We will keep it updated with all the special songs, and any new songs we do. Hope you enjoy the clips, and if you like go to the page and comment and rate the videos!

Oh yeah, we are keeping track of views and reporting all that with the rest of the stuff so we aren’t violating any copyright laws, for now.
Coming up later from tonight will be “Spring of Life” by Kristian Stanfill, “Our God is Love” by Lee Mcderment(I actually asked him if it was alright that we used this song months ago, great song!) and “Hallelujah” by Paramore

Student Worship Band Compilation

Here is a view videos of the band that plays for the Wired and Varsity Ministrys at Brookwood Church.
This is only a view of the kids who play and we have a lot more talent that is in the band but used these guys on one sunday morning. I thought I would put all the clips from this Sunday together in one blog so people could check them out! Here they are.

One extra note! I am showing these videos so people can be encouraged seeing students lead worship in such a big way! God is moving in a huge way in these students life and they are opting to lead worship and even write songs glorifying God and to me that is amazing! I knew that this could never happen through my will but only if God wanted it to happen, he brought in some kids with great hearts and it has exploded and been growing ever since!

All To You

Student Worship Band

Here is another clip of the Varsity/Wired band at Brookwood Church playing “All to You” by Lincoln Brewster. We did cut out the six minute solo, although our guitar players could easily do it, just don’t feel it’s needed during worship. I love it, don’t get me wrong, just not the right place for it sometimes!
