Rob Smith

Rob Smith has been a global leader in evangelical music for three decades.  He has a new book out ‘Come, Let us Sing!’ just as singing has been restricted in many churches due to COVID-19.

Rob joins us to talk about some of the principles he’s discovered in a lifetime’s work in Evangelical Music, plus how the current pandemic has caused course corrections.

We’re asking how do we engage with God and engage with each other best in normal circumstances and in the current pandemic.  What part does music play in praising, praying and preaching together.

What advice is there for musicians and church leaders on navigating current restrictions (like no congregational singing, one song leader, social distancing etc) in regards to song choices, instrumentation, arrangements, number of songs, introduction, arrangement of meeting, use of the screen, pressure on musicians, leading the congregation in song vs performance ?
