Would you be willing to have any of these guys play at your church?
We cannot become the “new” traditional church.
I think that the “contemporary” church has already become the new traditional church for the most part. Just because you like the music that is played does not mean that everyone else does. We must constantly be updating!
Tony Morgan said this on the topic:
“While the church still leans on a mix of rock and pop music as the preferred worship genre, our culture has shifted once again. Now, according to iTunes, 1 in 3 of the top 100 songs in the country is either hip-hop/rap or R&B/soul. My guess, though, is that you can’t name a church in the country that’s using these genres of music for worship.” (Check out his article on this very topic!)
And just for the record, I like them all.
Lecrae in fact has been working with John Piper a lot. Now that is cool.
