  1. I agree completely, thank you, you’ve helped me in dark times, and because of the positive uplifting worship, i’ve been called to the ministry. thanks for all you do!

  2. Upon what criteria is this list based? I am truly curious.

    Although I lead worship in a small rural mountain church, we do consider most of our songs to be contemporary Christian and I use much of the time for resources. Our church has yet to learn a single one of these songs, though we are working on “Your Grace Finds Me”.

    Is this and editor’s pick or was this a sampling taken from the vote this fall?

    • In the past, I have been asked by CCLI to keep records of the number of times I use songs in worship. Although, I have never been told by CCLI its purpose, I fulfilled my duty. Churches and music evolve every day. I think the purpose(s) of these polls is to try keep records to check on the church’s movement and how fast churches are moving in order for the publishers to be able to accommodate ministries and stay up to date. For example, Matt Redman’s “10,000 Reasons (Bless the Lord)” has been used in my worship services many times throughout the 2013 year. I am the worship director for a church that has (3) services on Sunday, (1) on Thursday and the possibility of more services throughout the week once we plant the new church. Sometimes songs may be suggested with a purpose to advocate a mission(s).

  3. Totally agree, Oceans is very original. And the lyrics are so powerful.
