Service Planning

Sunday is coming – how do you plan the service? Which songs and Scripture readings do you choose? And what order should they be arranged in? You will find answers in this episode as well as advice for non-musical pastors and how to prepare your Sunday service with a pastor’s heart. Listen as pastors Brian Croft and Jason Adkins discuss how they plan services on a weekly basis.

“If you pulled me aside on a Sunday and asked me why we chose that song, I would tell you something about the sermon.” – Jason Adkins
