Hungry for Worship

Practical. Timely. Solutions.
for worship leaders and pastors

Your church, whatever size, can experience transformational worship in the face of cultural shifts. With balance, Drs. Frank Page and Lavon Gray share ten points to evaluate worship practices, weather change, and satisfy our hunger for worship, including perspectives on: Theological Distinctiveness, Music Minister’s Calling, Leader Training, Modern Choirs, Multiethnic Worship, Consumerism, Age-Segregated Worship, and more.

Hungry for Worship takes a provocative look at 10 specific worship challenges facing churches—regardless of church size—over the next decade. Through a balance of historical perspective, theological truth, and practical experience, Frank Page and L. Lavon Gray encourage pastors and those responsible for leading worship to evaluate their worship in light of these challenges. Offering practical ideas, pastors and worship leaders can ensure their church is positioned to weather the changes of pop culture and experience healthy worship.
