Darlene Zschech

No one has had a bigger impact on modern worship music than Darlene Zschech. At Hillsong Church Darlene crafted a sound, created a culture, and poured into a legacy that is still thriving a decade after she stepped down as Worship Pastor. Although she is best known as an anointed worship leader, award winning songwriter, and a brilliant singer,...

Kari Jobe

I’ve been listening intently through your new project, “The Garden.” What were some of the inspirations for the songs? Well, it’s kind of a two-fold thing with this album. I did a lot of writing out of a season where my sister lost her baby at seven and a half months pregnant at the same time that I...

Crowder

15 years ago, when we published our first issue of Worship Musician magazine, you were on our cover! (laughter) That was the first one? No way! Has it been more of a “I can’t believe it’s been that long,” kind of a feeling, or more of a “time flies when you’re having fun,” feeling? Well this explains everything!...

Hillsong Worship

I have a high degree of admiration for Reuben Morgan, Ben Fielding, and the rest of the Hillsong team as servants of the global church. Reuben has been busy with a conference at home, and we had to conduct our interview via email. So, Reuben, I’ll thank you publically here… Thank you for taking the time to process through...

Paul Baloche

Having the opportunity to visit with Paul Baloche was an incredible blessing. I have been learning from Paul for almost 20 years! If you don’t know Paul, I think he is hilarious and so very insightful. Truly, he is a voice that God has used to bless, encourage, and equip the Church. Worship Musician: With your recent move to New...

Banning Liebscher Interview

Our mission at Worship Musician is to provide practical help for Worship teams. With Chris McClarney on the cover, we decided to launch this new column by interviewing Banning Liebscher, Jesus Culture founder and Pastor. True to form, Banning’s words are inspirational, practical, and applicable. I’ll be sharing them with my team and I invite you to do the...

Giving Honor Where Honor is Due

I have always said that if you have something that solves a problem for a church – that you have something good. Several years ago Howard Rachinski saw that there was a need for his local church and a few other ones. From there something quite significant has grown and is now serving the church worldwide. I can personally testify...

Chris McClarney

Chris McClarney is still serving the church and writing about the one whose love never fails. I had the opportunity to catch up with Chris and hear more about his family, his ministry, and what God is doing in his life. Worship Musician: Your first release on a label was entitled, Introducing Chris McClarney. How would you introduce yourself? Chris McClarney:...

Meredith Andrews

: What came first, Worship Leading or Songwriting? Meredith Andrews: Actually, I feel like they came simultaneously. I wrote my first song when I was 12. Now, granted, my first song had six verses and no chorus…so, I guess I thought I was like a modern day hymn-writer. I grew up in a small Assembly of God church in North...

Matt Maher

Matt and his band led worship for our annual Night of Worship at NAMM with over 1,000 people in attendance. In the midst of the industry craziness that is NAMM, where companies are showing the latest and greatest tools for humans to create music, we were able to take a moment to focus on the Creator of music, and...
