We Welcome You Here.

An online space for practitioners, producers and educators to connect, collaborate and create with others in the global worship community.

This month's must reads.

The place of music in worship is to enable us to pray.

Music is not to be focused on the performer – rather on the congregation – engaging with God and other believers.

The Worship Leader Network aims to renew practices of worship in Christian communities, Christians in the arts of worship, with a special focus on music and the unique role of hymns and songs in building community and nourishing faith.

The WL Network offers a space in which the worship leaders of tomorrow can connect with each other, collaborate and create in worship design, and circulate ideas, songs, and best practices through the global Christian community.

Above all else, we seek to serve and assist individuals, congregations, and communities in “finding their voices” and raising them as they sing a new song to God.
