Worship Leader Resources

One of my biggest passions is leading others in worship.  For that reason, I’ve put together some free resources to help your church begin playing some of my songs in your worship service.  My plan is for this section of the site to continue growing with helpful articles, free chord charts, lyric displays, and tutorials, so check back often.

Free Lyric Projection Software

Lyric projection software can be very expensive, and not every church or event has the budget for one of the big-name projection suites.  However, the flexibility of your production team doesn’t have to suffer.  We have been using OpenLP on the road for several months now, and we love it!  It allows the operator to see the entire song from the control while still only placing one slide at a time on the overhead projector.  It handles video beautifully and can import existing slide shows and run them in a loop for announcements.  Adding new songs and setting up services is a breeze.

There are certainly a few minor learning curve issues and design quirks, but that would be the case with any projection software.  The good news is that the OpenLP team constantly builds and improves the program and does regular updates to add new features and whenever issues arise. There no need to ever return to the limitation of PowerPoint again.

OpenLP uses the OpenSong format to store songs, which is a glorified XML file.  You can download and import the lyrics for any of Wes Pickering’s songs below in “album resources.”
