Episode 15: Writing Songs for Your Church with Krissy Nordhoff


Welcome to the WorshipWorkshop Podcast where we help you grow a stronger team that leads engaging worship.

Today we are talking about songwriting for the church, and we have an amazing guest to teach and inspire us.

This season, we have focused on how to engage your congregation—and we’ve hit this theme from a lot different angles and topics.

Today, we’re continuing that theme, but now centering it around writing original songs that will engage your congregation.

So to do that, I got the privilege to do a fantastic interview with a master songwriter who has a heart to create new songs for the church to sing.

She’s won a Dove Award for song of the year, has written songs sung by a whole list of artists and worship leaders that you know, and she is actively mentoring and building up local church songwriters.

I know you’re going to enjoy this conversation with Krissy Nordhoff.

The Worship Workshop Learning Community (Facebook Group)

Don’t know what our Worship Workshop Learning Community is?

Our new Worship Workshop Facebook Group isn’t another place to swap setlists and post pictures of your new stage design. This is about helping you transform your team members through…

  • training…
  • community…
  • encouragement…
  • and challenge.

And, it’s free to join. Each week, there will be new training lessons for you and/or your team members. And each month, there’ll be a limited-time premium class that’s geared to grow your team musically, relationally, or spiritually.

Again, it’s all free.

The Worship Workshop Learning Community Facebook Group will give you a “training space” where you can challenge your team, celebrate their wins, and give them quick, bite-size training to help them grow and mature.

Go here to learn more.


Become the Patron Saint of Worship Workshop

The free content on this podcast and inside the Worship Workshop Facebook group is actually not free. I mean, it is for you. But you know that this sort of stuff takes money to create and share.

And we know that the worship leaders who have been a part of our WorshipTeamCoach.com and WorshipWorkshop.com community would love a way to support what we’re doing, besides just buying a few products.

Now you can. We’ve partnered with Patreon to allow you to financially support the podcast and the facebook group for as little as $2 a month. And the two bucks makes a difference. Because you’re not the only person partnering with us.

Become a Patron!

Now, to jumpstart our Patreon participation, we’ve got a HUGE bonus for the first 20 people who support us at the $10 or more a month level. You get to choose one of five packages (each priced over $100) for FREE.

Discover what the training packages are here.
