authentic worship production....

It seems we are at the beginning of another shift in church technology. The cause of this shift stems for the desire in churches across the country to move from production focused to authenticity based experiences in their services. That doesn’t mean that the production aspect is less quality, it just becomes less showy or ‘ta-da’ and more solid in expressing that authenticity. It takes vision and sensitivity to accomplish that…and a lot of hard work.

I absolutly agree! People are hungering for something deeper. They want absolute truth, not something that makes them feel good. Younger generations into older generations are longing for more authentic experiences at church.

What does authentic worship truly look like? Is it even achievable on a major scale. To truly worship authentically don't you have to first live a life of worship. How are people going to be able to tell what is authentic and real in their worship? Because we focus more on "less production" does that make it more authentic? That's a lot of questions to be askin' when all were really talking about just inviting people into God's glory, whatever that takes. If it means that people connect better video and lights that lead people in worship. I say do it, if it means that we pull everything out and work on getting people to "worship" with no instrumentation.

Those seem like a lot of questions to be asking. . . . .
