Recorded, our new narrative podcast, begins with a two-part miniseries called “Remembering 9/11.”


How can church leaders foster a culture that encourages artistic expression and musical excellence and also produces Scripture-saturated, Christ-exalting songs?

That’s the question Aaron Ivey, pastor of worship at The Austin Stone Church in Texas, answers in a new three-minute video. Fostering a culture of worshipers is something all good worship leaders aim for in their ministry, but it’s not easy. Watch as Ivey explains how to navigate this ambition and to discern the difference between a culture of worship and a culture of worshipers. You’ll also hear the five things The Austin Stone worship ministry focuses on in order to facilitate a culture of worshipers. You can lead artists in your church to leverage their skills to build up the body—all the while remaining rooted in the Word of God and fixed on the ultimate object of all our worship, Christ the King.
