Another in the Vineyard series of Training interviews with respected worship leaders. In the spotlight this time is Vineyard UK's Brenton Brown, who, according to the sleevenotes, hails "from South Africa and the UK" (?). Now based in Oxford, Brenton is the author of classics like "Lord, Reign In Me", "Hallelujah (Your Love Is Amazing)" and the sublime "Humble King". He relates the origins of that song here and has plenty of other illuminating testimonies and advice to share (50 mins total); I found his thoughts on 'Preparing a set" and "Songwriting mistakes" especially interesting. Other subjects include "Establishing Flow", "Mentoring Others", "Co-writing" and "Blue Sky Mining"! For Brenton, good theology is essential to good writing and so lyrical content is of supreme importance. Though a specialist resource, I've gotta say I found Brenton's "inside story" on worship writing/leading genuinely interesting.

Product Description

Reign In Me is a training interview with Brenton Brown.

Author/co-author of modern worship anthems such as Lord Reign In Me and Hallelujah (Your Love Is Amazing), Brenton Brown offers his insightful perspectives on many topics related to worship and worship leaders. Hailing from South Africa and the UK, his thoughtful approach to theology, pastoral approach to people, and scriptural approach to songwriting makes his voice particularly powerful to today's worship leaders in a small group, rehearsing your band and establishing flow in a set round out of this excellent, one-on-one interview.

Listen in as Brenton applies the reigning Kingship of Christ to every aspect of our worship leadership.

I have ordered three copies of the Brown's "Everlasting God" (to start). I am eagerly awaiting their arrival at our local bookstore. My husband and I have been leading in worship for many years and I came down with CFS a little over 5 years ago, in my 6th pregnancy and after missions and worship /prayer conference work and travel. I cannot express to you the encouragement that the Browns's lives, via their music and what interviews I have read, have provided to this heart. It is a wave of refreshing Holy Spirit water to be able to see and to hear people who are triumphing through Christ Jesus despite the tough stuff of life. My family is praying for them and our church is singing their songs. Jesus is Lord!
