On Friday, I’m starting a new video interview series.
My heart for this website is that it will be a help to church musicians and music directors by passing along what God has taught me.
But I’m still learning, and I don’t have all the answers.
So, to be the most help to you (and to get some help myself), I’m going to bring in the voices of church musicians who are being effective in their ministries.
We will shooting video interviews and posting them here at markjmartin.com.
I’m excited about this opportunity!
And I’m looking forward to kicking this off Friday with an interview with James Koerts, worship pastor at Mikado Baptist Church in Macon, GA.
James has been gracious to help me along the way in my music ministry. Our ministry has gained immense help from the thoughts and suggestions he has given me.
Here’s where you come in. I want this interview to give you the most value, so I want to include some of your questions in the interview.
Click the comment link at the bottom of this post to give me your questions about general music ministry planning, Christmas planning, finding time for writing and arranging.
What we talk about will largely depend on what questions you ask.
I will be interviewing him Thursday and posting Friday. Please send me your questions by Noon Wednesday.
So, let me know what questions do you have for James about church music ministry. Comment here.
James has an online music store at koertsmusic.com where you can find fresh piano arrangements of hymns and some great piano recordings. After commenting, head on over to his site to check out his music.

Every time I sit down to select music, I struggle with knowing where to start. Often the greatest struggle has to do with the wealth of hymns I have. Usually I just end up working my way through the hymn book or chorus book, singing/playing songs until I’ve got the four needed for the service. How do you go through the process of selecting the music?
Thanks for the feedback, Nehemiah! We’ll be sure to include that.
