#216: Brock Shinen on The Worship Music Industry [Podcast]

Are you a songwriter? Do you and your team write songs for the local church and have a desire to record that music? Maybe you already have.

Honestly, there’s no better guy to talk to than Brock Shinen. Brock is an attorney with a passion for the local church that helps numerous artists in the Christian Music space.

In this interview we talk about the worship music industry, horror stories, success stories, and Brock’s new online course.

If you’re a creative in the church, you don’t want to miss this one!

If you’re a musician, you know there’s nothing like a well built, inspiring instrument. A great instrument is an inspiration itself, beyond just the functionality and playability. That’s why it’s important to have an instrument that inspires you and holds up to your active lifestyle. 

Let me introduce you to Zamar Instruments. Zamar builds custom guitars that are absolutely beautiful, but that also play and sound amazing. Zamar is an amazing small business, passionate about offering individualized attention to each instrument and client for a second-to-none experience. And for you Hebrew wizards out there, Zamar is an Old Testament word for praising the Lord on a stringed instrument.

All the guitars from Zamar are hand built but there is also the option of a custom built guitar that you design from the ground up. Head on over to zamarinstruments.com and mention the Beyond Sunday podcast to get 15% off your guitar. Or just shoot an email to nathan@zamarinstruments.com

Is there a worship team tool you can’t live without? For me, that’s Planning Center. I remember the days of excel spreadsheets and phone calls trying to nail down who was going to be available for Sunday. When we switched to Planning Center nearly 10 years ago, it changed the game for us. All of a sudden, we had an all-in-one solution for scheduling our teams, coordinating schedules, communicating about weekend details, and getting responses from band members. A week doesn’t go by where I don’t use Planning Center. 

Maybe many of you use Planning Center to schedule your teams and organize your services. While that’s fantastic, it just scratches the surface of what PCO can do for you. If you’re looking to advance to Planning Center Ninja status, you need to use it as full church management software system. Planning Center provides Check-ins for your kids ministry, an online giving system, managing people and small groups, event registrations, resources, music stand, and a mobile app for your congregation. Crazy right?

Planning Center is offering a 30 day FREE trial so you can see for yourself how amazing this service is. After the 30 days are up, pricing all depends on the size of your church. I can say it’s worth the investment of every penny. It’s an easy, low cost solution that yields incredible results.
