New Church Hacks Webinar Series

Introducing a new webinar series sponsored by Hope Partnership for Missional Transformation’s New Church Ministry… New Church Hacks.

Hosted by Pastor Terrell L McTyer, Minister of New Church Strategies, New Church Hacks provides practical (and sometimes peculiar) prompts for churches from start to restart. Why only do new or better when you can be both! New Church Hacks is jam-packed with clever solutions to tricky problems and empowers courageous leaders with the tools, tips and how-tos to start, sustain and strengthen congregations. #churchlife

The next installment in our series is June 20, 2018 at 3:00 pm EST. This episode features Jamie Bramble (Creative Arts Director and Worship Leader at Simplicity Church, Oklahoma City, OK) and Pastor Liam Bernhard (Worship Leader at Crestwood Vineyard, Oklahoma City, OK and Director of Worship School OKC) discussing 11+ Hacks for Music in a New Church, Small Church or House Church.

Emerging and smaller congregations can have simple yet effective worship. Learn helpful hacks to take your music ministry to the next level – independent of size or stage. Want to add music to your service but have limited people, resources and (frankly) skills? Must you have a worship team with guitars who lead the congregation in choruses sung off an overhead projector? Maybe, maybe not. Explore with us…

  • Develop a worship style that is sensitive to your people and community, and guided by the vision and purpose of the church.
  • Witness how your congregation can have a service that glorifies God and draws people into fellowship through music.
  • Learn how to save time, money, or unneeded frustration, especially when it comes to music for your worship service.

A new or renewing church does not (nor can it or should it) try to duplicate the worship form of the larger church. Church music is not one-size-fits-all. Envision new ideas for a unique, customized music program.


The first episode featured Pastor Jorge “Joey” Cotto and Tony Rodriguez of Central Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in Coral Gables FL, leading a discussion on the Marks of a Healthy New Church. Register to watch the playback.
