LeTourneau University was selected as one of Worship Leader magazine’s Best of the Best for its new Worship Arts Program in the magazine’s October issue.
Yearly, Worship Leader surveys worship leaders and media teams around the world, sifting through myriad suggestions from the leaders in worship and worship technology to come up with 7 groupings, 38 categories with 5 -15 items in each list.
Worship Leader’s “Best of the Best” is a directory of everything from the best music resources to the ultimate software, visual and presentation technology, worship training, musical instruments, apps, sound and recording equipment, books and devotionals to the leading products in lighting, screens and projectors—from In-Ear monitors, to stage risers, room dividers to digital page turners and more.
“This year marks the first time that LETU has earned a slot in Worship Leader’s Best of the Best directory of worship resources,” said Mark Jonah, assistant professor and developer of LETU’s Worship Arts program. “The topic of worship in churches today is an important and vital area of interest. We are pleased to have received this designation for our newest program of study in Christian Ministries. How we worship God is of greatest importance. Students studying Worship Arts at LeTourneau will be grounded in both the theology and the practice of worship."
The annual October collection of the top recommended worship essentials has become an indispensable tool for pastors, worship leaders, media teams, worship teams and the sound tech saving both time and money as they process and make key decisions about resource allocation.
“With the abundance of worship-related products now available, knowing how to make the best choices for your church, based on size, budget and church orientation can leave those ‘in charge’ overwhelmed,” explains Jeremy Armstrong, Worship Leader’s managing editor.
Detailing the issue’s history, he says, “It has evolved from a general buyer’s guide and bonus issue to one of the year’s central issues for Worship Leader and most back-ordered.” Daniele Kimes, VP of Sales and Marketing, adds, “It is always my goal to connect our readers with the resources and tools that best equip them to do their job and serve their congregation. The Best of the Best issue provides them with a comprehensive overview of those tools and has become an issue they continue to rely on to make key purchase decisions.”
