Church Music Matters

The church has been singing together for hundreds of years. But why? Why do we, week in and week out, practice the rhythm of gathering together in community? And when we do gather, what should we sing? Church Music Matters is a new podcast where two guys who serve together in a local church, Tyler Clarensau and Max Janusch, sit down and try to figure this stuff out... with microphones... and theologians, authors, songwriters, and pastors who are way smarter than they are.
