No Room on Stage Breaks My Heart

The Voice of a broken heart by WolfSoul on FlickrI’m seriously heart broken right now. The music was so good today it wasn’t enough for me. I could play another three or four services with the team we had. Tremendous job everyone!

Here was the set list today at Chase Valley Church:

  • Blessed Be Your Name – Matt Redman
  • Evermore – Joel Houston
  • Made to Worship – Chris Tomlin
  • Beautiful One – Tim Hughes
  • At the Cross – Reuben Morgan, Darlene Zschech
  • Blessed Be Your Name – Matt Redman

Having multiple layered guitars was super awesome, even if it was hard to find a place to stand on our stage. Crowd participation was at an all time high. We started Blessed Be with just one guitar. When it hits “Every blessing your pour out…” the second guitar came in simply strumming a sustained chord on the down beat. As soon as he strummed that first chord hands went up.

I loved being able to drop out and stop playing to lead people in clapping and the song keeps its integrity. There was some serious worship going on at Chase Valley this morning.

This post is part of Set List Sundays.

Worship pretty much rocked today.

Worship set list for Chase Valley Church February 24th, 2008:

  • We Humble Ourselves – Paul Baloche
  • Awesome God (Majesty and Mystery) – Vicky Beeching
  • Adonai – Raymond Badham, Mia Fieldes
  • Wholly Yours – David Crowder
  • Mighty to Save – Reuben Morgan, Ben Fielding
  • Open the Eyes of My Heart – Paul Baloche

Highlights/Lowlights

  • This was a great set – the songs worked well in the slot they were in
  • The band sounded great – we had keyboards/synth for the first time since I’ve been on staff and it made a huge difference.
  • Our sound/media tech was on point
  • We Humble Ourselves – This is a new song for the church and people picked up on it really well. The harmonies were stellar on this one.
  • Awesome God (Majesty and Mystery) – One of our female vocalist led this one and nailed it. This is a pretty rocked out tune and we did it pretty low key – without any lead guitar using simply acoustic, bass and synth. It gave a more tender feel to the song – which I felt was more appropriate given the lyrics: “Your arms are, the arms that surround me in a warm embrace.”
  • Adonai – this is a great song. This was our 2nd time doing this one and the congregation has really responded to it. I started jumping during one of the music interludes and my in-ear monitor receiver unclipped from my pocket and fell on the stage. I had to stop playing guitar to get my monitor going again. The same thing actually happened at the same point in the song during sound check. I must need some duct tape or something – this song’s got some great energy.
  • Mighty to Save – everyone started cheering spontaneously after singing “Jesus conquered the grave” in the first chorus. The Spirit was moving today.
