    Artist Websites

    • There are many popular Christian musicians who have built websites for worship leaders to use in their churches. Chris Tomlin created the "Worship Frequency" website for today's worship leader. It has complete chord charts, instructional videos on all of Tomlin's songs and devotional thoughts on current worship songs from other artists. The David Crowder Band has provided a similar website that has all the chords and lyrics for their many worship songs from the last few years. Charlie Hall has a website that includes not only chords and lyrics, but also specific information on the equipment used by the band during worship. Paul Beloche provides a wealth of guitar worship resources at Leadworship.com.

    Social Networks

    • Worship leaders can use generic social networking sites such as Twitter and Facebook to connect with other worship leaders, and there are also specific social networks built exclusively for worship leaders. Worship The Rock is a social network that connects worship leaders around the world so they can share song ideas and talk about the challenges associated with music leadership in a church setting. As of 2011, the Worship The Rock community has grown to 7,000 worship leaders and team members.

    Songwriting Support

    • Worship leaders who want to create their own music and write their own lyrics can find support from other worship artists on forums and songwriting clubs. The Christian Songwriter's Network, for example, provides resources for worship songwriters such as dictionaries and chords books. The site also holds songwriting contests throughout the year and provides feedback for any original songs you put into the community.

    Holiday Planning

    • Christian holidays occur throughout the year and provide a ripe source of song ideas. In addition to Christmas and Easter, many Christians celebrate Pentecost with worship songs and even the seasonal changes between summer and autumn, with what worship leaders call "harvest worship songs." Another special Christian day with plenty of worship songs is Baptism Day. Baptism can be celebrated during a particular time of the year or at any point when you as the worship leader want to spotlight the importance of Baptism in the Christian life. Worship the Rock hosts a forum on their website where worship leaders can discuss their plans for holiday music. Some worship websites, such as Worship Matters, offer articles for worship leaders to reflect on whether or not a holiday should impact their worship planning.
