21 Mar Episode 045: Engaging Kids in Worship With Corinne Noble
In this episode, I interview Children’s Pastor Corinne Noble. Corinne and I have a great conversation about creating remarkable kids’ worship experiences. She talks about what this looks like practically from building teams, training leaders, setting up the environment, to the nuts and bolts of choosing music and scheduling. Corinne also shares a unique idea that her team has pioneered in order to engage kids in worship, and the impact that has had on kids’ worship at Desert Springs Church.
Let me know if you’ll be there–it’d be great to connect with you!

Consider gathering leaders in your area for encouragement and development. I’d love to have a conversation with you about how to launch something like this in your area.
