“Hello, and welcome to this episode of the Worship Band Builder podcast, where we are working with you to lay the foundation for skillful worship! I’m Eric Roberts. I’m joined by my co-host, Emily Roberts.” 

THE BIG 50 

  • 25 core songs  
  • 25 outer edges (older songs, songs phasing out, songs you can do without, songs with history) 
  • +12 new songs a year  

Other items on your list

  • Really popular songs in culture  
  • Possible New Songs  
  • (Be flexible with this list because the list may have up to 100 songs on it at any one time but you are focused on a core 50) 

So many songs out there… how do I pick?  

  1. https://us.ccli.com/  Top 100  Top 25  
  2. https://www.praisecharts.com/songs/hot/
  3. Use Your Gut…. Your style…. Take notes about what people seem to connect wit

The charts will likely move faster than your congregation.

TWO MAIN REASONS FOR THE BIG 50 - This is important for your church and for your team  

  1. First, your church will learn to sing and connect with God through the BIG 50 songs.  When they hear them on the radio or at home, they will be reminded and drawn to a worship experience. 
  2. Second, your band will become GOOD, REALLY GOOD, at the songs they know and love….. too many new songs and the band will struggle and suffer. 

LIVE WITH THE SONGS FIRST 

  • Spotify playlist  
  • Youtube Playlists 
  • Jam with the songs in your key  
  • Worship with the songs alone (car, devotion time, etc

Ask yourself some questions:

  • Where is the song pointing?  
  • Does the song say something that I want to say to God.  (Something I would actually say) 
  • Is the song really good, solid, worshipful… or just cool and popular….   Use discernment so you can grow a strong BIG 50
