Yesterday was the youth praise bands first service! This is also my first band leadership experience!
The music went fantastic. Of course the first half of the first song was a bit "off" because of everyone's nerves, but at the second chorus i felt something happen and suddenly everyone just locked in really well!! Thank the Lord
My favorite part was the closing song. I chose a really popular song in our church that everyone knew and everyone sang along. The congregation ended up being so loud that I couldn't hear the vocals coming through the PA!!!! Simply amazing. It was like playing "Killing In The Name of" to a bunch of angst filled teenagers again!
Anyways, thanking the Lord for a great kick off to the new youth praise band
