Editorial Reviews


ALASTAIR VANCE, worship leader and songwriter @ Story Church
"What Gangai presents here is a comprehensive guide to both the spiritual and practical aspects of leading worship, gleaned from many years of experience.  It is a true gem and it will prove a great resource for worship teams - particularly those belonging to church plants that are starting from the ground up."
ERIC DYE, human rights advocate and editor of CHURCH MAG
"The Worship Kenbook crosses denominational lines and is a helpful and insightful read for worship leaders, choir members, drummers--everyone participating in leading corporate worship. In fact, some worship leaders might want to consider using this as required reading (all or parts) for their worship team!
For those that don't know who Gangai Victor is, other than a guest writer for ChurchMag, he is a worshiper from Chennai, India, an active blogger and worship ministry trainer."
BRAD RHINE, worship leader and editor of WORSHIP LINKS
"Overall, the thing I most enjoyed about about Gangai's book is that it's practical. All in all, you can't go wrong with this book. If you're a worship leader - regardless of your experience or ability level - there's some good stuff here for you."
PETER SILAS, blogger and author
"I would challenge any one of you reading this review to read this book and tell me you were not able to connect in some way!
The reader is given clear examples along with both Scripture and practicality to hopefully unlock their heart during their next worship session with God; whether it be prayer, service or doing a deed that is good in His eyes, the potential to grow is now given to the reader... worship ministers, you now have clear principles to help guide you."

From the Back Cover

YOHAN PERERA, founder of 'The Virtual Preacher'
"The Worship Kenbook" is not just another 'how to' on Christian worship but God's prophetic message delivered to both the parishioner and the worship leader with a great sense of passion to it."
ROBERT MARTIN, worship leader & songwriter, Hosanna Youth
"It's simple, thoughtful, and useful for worshippers and worship teams... it is evident that much study, experience and love has gone into creating this resource. Study, practice it and glorify God!!"

LENNY SOARES, worship leader & songwriter, Living Waters
"Great learning and encouragement for worship leaders. I love the simplicity and personal sharing, which I am sure all will be able to relate with."  

The Online Book Club

"If you want a book to help revive your worship team or learn the basics on how to start one from scratch, this is the book for you."

The author has set-up a guide for Christian worship for ministries of the world, which he had published in 2013. As a man from Chennai, India, he aims to promote greater cooperation and unity among Christian churches of the world. He sees the knowledge he presents in his book as empowering, enabling worshippers in a corporate or personal capacity, to glean from his experience of many years in the worship and music ministry. He invites ministries to participate in his wisdom. Gives examples from the Scriptures as well as from his own life perception and vision as mentor.

The keyword for his endeavours is "connecting". Giving guidelines to ministries to help in their worship by identifying vehicles of worship in congregations. He points out the value-adding principles in this interdenominational initiative relating to:

* absolute faith and prayer
* supplication
* repentance
* mercy
* intercession
* surrender
* thanksgiving and praise
* devotion
* reverence and honour
* passion
* blessings
* power in music and song as vehicle, instruments of worship.

Gangai says he chooses what will better lead to God's deepening his life in him. His goal is to live out uncompromised Christian values and principles to become the ultimate worshipper and effective worship minister. He has an open mind and started from a spiritual innocent phase and developed to the most contemporary worship practices which include music and song as instruments to praise and worship God.

He shows us what is not worship. He gives a checklist of mistakes and gives us examples of the right forms of expression in leading worship like: reading, reflecting, memorising, studying, kneeling, singing and more.

Indian author Gangai Victor, from Chennai, India, is the editor of Votive Praise (a resource for worship leaders and musicians), a guest writer for ChurchMag, an active blogger and worship ministry trainer, songwriter and technology expert. All of this aspects he distills in this book which he subtitles ‘Sound principles, right practices & smart tips for powerful worship ministry’ and gives a telling dedication of the book that follows: ‘To the many unknown worship ministers all over the world who are faithful to their community; those who arrive early and leave late; whose hearts are set upon Christ; those who do not look for popularity or applause; those who run the race daily, accepting the challenges of balancing their time between family, work and ministry; to those who are willing to stay in the shadows and leave the center-stage to the Lord.’

Gangai’s message is clear – he cares about worship time and worship techniques and this book is designed for those in the ministry at any level and serves as a very solid primer on how to create meaningful worship ministries. He offers his own awakening process: ‘I finally understood truths that had been taught to me repeatedly over the years but until then did not make much sense. Basic things like the Father loves, Christ saves, and that the Holy Spirit actually exists! It was during a session of worship that I gave my life to Jesus and was flooded with a joy I had never felt before! It’s why I firmly believe that Jesus can only be taught to an extent; the real deal is in experiencing Him.

I have been a part of different worship teams as a leader and participant, I found the concepts provided go very much in line what I was taught. Victor discusses the misconceptions around worship like people believing worship is only done in church or emotional high. Worship is a lifestyle choice where a person demonstrates the love of God in all aspects of their lives. He described some additional acts like bible reading and intercession that I hadn't thought of as part of worship before. It is worship because it displays the person's love for God through his/her actions.

One section that I believe is truly valuable for all members in a worship ministry is the part where the author discusses the hindrances to effective worship. I have seen some of these outcomes that were not pretty or effective. I definitely agree with the author that prep work is always necessary in worship. There's nothing more disconcerting than to want to get into the song but be distracted by visuals or people singing off pitch. It's not to say church is not "safe" place because it is but its like anything in life where if you have to think hard on it or focus excessively it does not flow. Worship is best and easiest when the prep work meets with a little freelance. Victor even discusses practical aspects like managing conflict, which people overlook as skills needed to be a leader in any type of organization. I would definitely recommend that anyone who wants to make their worship program more effective or build up a new one should read this book.
