Worship has long been a cornerstone of the Christian faith. In the early days of American Christianity, the local church would bring forth a joyful noise every Sunday morning with hymns of praise. The technology has changed, as has the music, but corporate worship is still thought of as an occasion for singing. Looking at Life Church, Vertical Church, and a select few other worship programs, we can see that there is no shortage of worship music in the world today.
These church worship programs are popular not just for their musical abilities, but for how their influence permeates the Christian community. Many of these churches are not only making music, but teaching schools, making films, and catering to social activism at home and around the world.
