Was just looking through the top 25 worship songs used in churches tonight (according to CCLI).

In one sense I feel good about myself / in another I’m a little concerned because I’ve done 22 of the 25 songs in the last year.  😉  Read the list, you’ll know what I mean.

One thought on “top.25.worship.songs

    I don’t know if I’m 100% certain of what your getting at, but my first observation a few years ago was that the CCLI top 25 in churches reflects a “way behind the times” use of worship songs in our churches. Unfortunately, I’m assuming, if you measure all the churches that even attempt, what they consider to be, contemporary worship then you’ll find that many churches use 5-10 yr old songs as their top play list and that drags down the polling of churches in general. This may sound mean, but it would drive me nuts to be that far behind the movement of music in church worship.
