Relevant and Timely Encouragements!
As your church service approaches the same time every week, are you struggling to make time for spiritual preparation?
Does worship sometimes feel more like a task than an expression?
Do you often feel alone in your pursuits as a leader or worshiper?
This well organized and timely book delivers tried and tested wisdom that can strengthen your leadership and encourage your team. It will save you time as it puts succinct, season-specific devotionals in ONE easy-to-access place.
Whether you’re a worship leader or a church attending Christian, you have experienced worship as warfare, spiritually and sometimes physically, mentally, and emotionally. At the frontline of battle, there is limited time; valuable time that could be saved by having supplemental resources, proper tools and weapons, and a tested battle plan.
As someone who has studied worship of the Christian God for more than 10 years, I’ve been your shoes! I’ve been the curious onlooker bewildered by other’s expressions. I’ve been the congregant who wanted to grow in worship. I’ve led worship in a small group and a stadium. I’ve been there, and I know it can be a battle. Instead of battling alone, come alongside me and other worship soldiers as we fight together.
There are many great books on the theology of worship, but they often require the spiritual maturity of Martin Luther or New Testament Paul himself and months to read and digest.
As We Fight only takes about 5 minutes to read each week:
- 52 weeks link modern church culture to specific times of the year.
- Increase your leadership equity with team members.
- Positively challenge your worship by giving fresh, measured perspectives.
- Directly and immediately apply these up to date references and practical challenges to your worship experiences.
Following along with these devotionals will give you a better sense of your worship culture and help you adjust to better lead and participate. You will also learn more about deciphering truth from God versus lies from the enemy. Don’t let the enemy push you away from the truths waiting in these pages!
What’s stopping you from…
- standing prepared with better tools, weapons, and battle plans;
- gaining a deeper knowledge;
- reading one of these well-timed, thoughtfully prepared encouragements for yourself or your team THIS weekend?
About The Author
Michael Lacey has never really fit in anywhere. His unique perspectives separate him from most groups of people, but he works to maintain healthy relationships regardless. His childhood was nearly perfect up until age 11 when he lost his left eye to a lawn dart incident. Now a statistic, he strives to make his story useful, to have the singular focus of sharing hope and encouragement to those who feel disqualified, outcast, or damaged. His mother is fighting for her life after battling stage IV brain cancer for nearly two years. Despite such various obstacles, Michael chooses to press on, continuing to fight for closeness to God, wisdom in purpose, and ways to ensure that his family legacy goes beyond all of their lives.
Passionate about leading people to a deeper connection with God through knowledge and experiences in worship, Michael strives to inspire and build up team members who want to seek the face of God in worship both privately and in corporate settings. Currently, Michael serves as an assistant worship leader at Life Fellowship Church in North Mississippi as well as a teacher of Business Math at Northwest MS Community College. He and his wife are persevering through the first year of their first son’s life, but that doesn’t slow him down from pursuing the passions God has placed in his heart including writing, songwriting, auto/motorcycle customization with his brothers at Lacey Brother’s Customs, amateur wood-working, teaching, and more.
