A Complete Manual for the Ministry of Church Music—A Practical Guide for Music Directors, Pastors, Choir Members, Musicians
This manual of church music philosophy, policies and practices may be followed by the music director of any sized church to build a music ministry that brings honor to Christ and provides an opportunity for the people of God, of all ages, to engage in this exciting area of service. This revised and updated edition of this important work (first published in 1974) deals with the many varied facets of the church music ministry. It offers young musicians an opportunity to obtain instant experience. Although it is lofty in its spiritual dynamic, it is down-to-earth in its explanation of how a music ministry should work. An outstanding veteran music director of one of the nation's largest churches describes this book as "practical, practical, practical." That is precisely what the author intended--a compilation of practical ideas, methods, and plans that help music leaders in virtually every area of this important ministry. Doubtless, no church will be able to use all of the ideas exactly as they are presented, but if some can be helpfully used in any form, the author will be elated and blessed to know it.
