(ORANGE COUNTY, California) Worship is - everyday; it\'s what we are. A lifelong musician, Pastor Rick Muchow worshipped music as a teenager, but soon realized that music is actually a means to worship God. Muchow, a worship leader at Saddleback Church in Orange County, Calif., answers vital questions about many aspects of worship to help explain how it can be more deeply meaningful in The Worship Answer Book (J Countryman, June 2006).
Although Rick is a gifted singer, songwriter and musician, he is a joyful, living reminder that worship is more than music. In fact, worship is more than one part of your life; worship is your life. Rick is a worshiper of God, and he leads us to worship God. When he worships, he models for our congregation and we follow his lead. When people see Rick worship, it helps them think, "I want that, too!" --Pastor Rick Warren, author of A Purpose Driven Life
Muchow says we need to learn to worship God in every area of our lives: at home, at work, in our cars..everywhere. Worship doesn't happen automatically; we have to make choices that will bring a real difference to our focus on God during worship. In The Worship Answer Book, Muchow answers 54 questions asked of him from people all over the world, such as "What is worship?", "Why and where should we worship?" and "How can worship change my life?"
Divided by categories such as The Basics of Worship, Personal Worship, Group Worship and Conflict in Worship, The Worship Answer Book is pocket-sized and portable. It's a solid foundation for people who want a more enriching worship experience.
Nearly 20 years ago, Muchow was invited by Pastor Rick Warren to join the staff of Saddleback Church where he has been the musical director and music pastor ever since. His music program is larger than most churches and provides music for 16 weekend services, eight annual Purpose Driven Church Conferences, including the Purpose Driven Worship Conference and Festival, The Saddleback School of Music and Arts, weekly bible studies and many other events. The church itself has grown to 22,000 average weekend attendance. Muchow lives in Orange County, Calif. Visit www.encouragingmusic.com for more information.
