Worship Matters: Episode 90 - Instrumental Music and Proclamation in Worship

Does music proclaim even without words? That’s the question that the worship team raised in conversation with the Rev. Joe Stobaugh, Senior Pastor of University Park United Methodist Church in Dallas, Texas. Rev. Stobaugh previously served as Pastor of Modern Worship at Grace Avenue UMC in Frisco, Texas, and as Executive Minister of Worship and Arts. He is also an ordained deacon in the North Texas Conference and has led in worship design and leadership. Rev. Stobaugh has served on the national level as a worship designer, song enlivener, conductor, preacher, and worship leader, including preaching at the United Methodist Student Movement’s National Forum, an event whose previous preachers include the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., among others. His sermon “Melody and Countermelody” was featured as a distinguished sermon on the One Campaign’s (founded by Bono of U2) website in 2007. Join us for this lively conversation about the role that music plays in worship.

“Worship Matters” is a podcast from the worship team of Discipleship Ministries, designed to deal with the intricacies of planning worship each week. Hosted by Dr. Diana Sanchez-Bushong, Executive Director of Worship Ministries and Director of Music Ministries; Dr. Lisa Hancock, Director of Worship Arts; and Dr. Derek Weber, Director of Preaching Ministries, this podcast explores themes and issues related to worship in a local context with an emphasis on planning worship in light of the common lectionary while creating worship experiences and series that are engaging, relevant, and adaptable for any church setting.
