Just as diners visit a fine restaurant anticipating the ambiance and meal to come, so first-time guests and members alike come to church to experience the presence of God. In this follow-up book to The Complete Worship Leader, veteran worship leader and pastor Kevin Navarro helps church leaders create a complete worship service by implementing a four-part pattern of worship: longing for, preparing for, experiencing, and talking about a taste of heaven. Approaching the worship service as an act of hospitality, Navarro emphasizes clearing away obstacles and communicating the gospel. He shares practical ideas for churches of all kinds and sizes-everything from assisting guests to using the arts to centering the preaching on Christ. Pastors, worship leaders, and church leaders of any denomination and worship style will benefit from this practical guide.

Like sounds of beautiful music, worship can renew us for God’s glory and our good by the invigorating power of God’s reverberating Word. It is God’s story that redeems all our stories. We want to tell it again and again as best we can, clearly conveying its message, meaning, richness, claim, and call. Through its every facet and component, worship that is biblically expositional can heighten how we proclaim God’s story, faithfully and creatively pointing to the One who alone offers us true identity, security, and destiny. “If you seek me you will find me, if you search with all your heart,” declares the Lord. With the ancient prophets and apostles we must repeat and repeat and repeat the most wonderful truth that God wants to be found. In Christian worship such tremendous and tender encounter is available to us as nowhere else.

Move your church from small-picture to big-picture worship A pastor's role in shaping worship is vital. But what if preaching isn't just one part of worship? What if preaching is worship? In Preaching as Worship, veteran preacher Michael Quicke encourages those who preach to open their eyes afresh to glorious big-picture worship--grounded in Trinitarian theology and focused on the pivotal role of Scripture as it directs gathered worship for community formation--urging them to restore worship as an encounter with God. This unique and insightful book offers a clear call for preachers to rethink their worship responsibilities and the importance of preaching--for the sake of their church members and their God. "Michael Quicke's winsome and insightful exploration of preaching as an integral component and reflection of Trinitarian worship is a welcome contribution to thoughtful literature on both preaching and worship. For too long, one has been viewed as simply a prelude or culmination of the other. Quicke helps us understand how worship and preaching function organically and holistically to honor the persons of the Godhead who also comes to us as one."--Bryan Chapell, president, Covenant Theological Seminary; author, Christ-Centered Preaching "This book stretched me and enriched my understanding of preaching and worship."--Craig Brian Larson, editor, Michael J. Quicke is C. W. Koller Professor of Preaching and Communication at Northern Seminary in the Chicago area and preaches and lectures across the world. He is the author of 360-Degree Preaching and 360-Degree Leadership.
