Tony Morgan writes about the new traditional church and what kind of music they use in worship.
I think the number one reason why rock and pop is the predominant genre of music in churches is this: our worship music has become the new “hymns” of the new traditional church. In other words, we grew up listening to that kind of worship music. Frankly, we’d rather play our “hymns” in our services than consider what style of music might more effectively connect with people who need Jesus.
I’m happy to say I know a guy that is bucking this trend. Check out Agape – Hip Hop Outreach.
