Moving forward

August 5, 2013

Thank you all again for your support over the years, and I hope that this blog has been helpful in one way or another to all of you as we discover new music together.

This fall I’ll be doing a training school through YWAM Kona and need to raise $9000 to attend. It’s a six-month program to train spiritual leaders and send them out into the mission field. I’ve always hesitated to ask for money on this site because the whole point is that this is a free ministry. However, if you feel led to donate to support me, you can do so here:

Again, thank you so much and I hope that this web site has blessing you in some way.

We’re beginning again.

June 29, 2013

S.O.A.R. Worship has been through a lot. It’s been around since the summer of ‘08, hosted here at WordPress. There have been some rough patches (read: years) but it’s back on track for now. Some things needed to change in order for this service to work smoothly and a change of domain was a part of that. From now on new chords and lyrics will be coming to the new, smaller site at tumblr rather than this one. Previous links and bookmarks may break in the process.

This site will remain active for a while since the new site does not have the comment-forum feel of this site, but it will no longer be updated.

Thank you so much for being patient with me through these years as priorities have shifted and changed. Let’s move forward together.

Update #6

July 6, 2010

Good morning, everyone!

The Song Requests page has been updated with some new guidelines, so please check that out.

Update #5

October 22, 2009

Hey guys. As I mentioned in my last update, the Worship Archive should be back to normal by October 26th at the latest, after all the chords have been moved here to WordPress.

Also, as a part of the reformatting I’ve been doing, I’m going to be cleaning out the chords that are available on other web sites. I think it’s a little unnecessary to have posts and chords here just taking up space when the chords are readily available on mainstream guitar tab sites or artist pages.

Some of the chords that will be deleted are the ones from Luke Wood and Brian and Jenn Johnson. Luke Wood chords are available on his web site and Brian and Jenn Johnson chords are available on their web site. Any requests I get for these artists will be redirected there.

Thanks again, everyone! I’m sorry for the lack of regular updates during the past couple months. I’m in a sort of in-between place right now and I’m trying to keep this running as smoothly as I can.

Blessings!

Jackson

Update #4

July 17, 2009

Okay, friends, I’ve been back for a couple days now, and I wanted to give you guys another update.

Apparently, the site where I’ve been hosting the chord and lyric sheets is shutting down at the end of October. Consequently, I’m going to be gradually moving the sheets here to WordPress (which would’ve been the smart thing to do at the beginning).

The reason I’m telling you this is that all direct links to sheets will stop working. So, please keep that in mind.

Also, as a side note, I’m going to be reworking the Worship Archive and all the chord posts for the next little while. The general layout will be the same, but they should end up being less cluttered and should load faster.

I’ll be progressing with all of these projects in alphabetical order, and you can see how far I am by the icon break at the Worship Archive.

Update #3

June 19, 2009

Hello, friends! Thanks so much for the continued support!

This is just a little blurb that I’m going to be out of town at IHOP-KC from June 20th through July 13th. I won’t have internet access while I’m there, so all updates and requests will be put on hold. Please keep this in mind when commenting or requesting songs. I’ll try to catch up on everything as soon as I return.

Thanks again!

Jackson

Update #2

December 26, 2008

News time!

Thanks to everyone for over 7,000 pageviews! This site is growing faster than I expected. It’s hard for me to believe that it started out with just one chord sheet and has grown to this (although, realistically, this site still only had about 25 chords). It has a lot of room to grow.

I’ll be leaving tomorrow for the Onething conference, and won’t be back until the new year. Please keep this in mind while commenting or sending requests, because I won’t have internet access during the conference.

Thanks, and happy new year!

Update #1

October 18, 2008

Hello readers!

I’m not sure how many people read this blog regularly, or if people just use it in searches and such. So, for anyone who checks this blog or is subscribed to it, sorry for the lack of regular updates in recent months! School has been a little hectic this year. Right now I’m working on a worship project on the side as well, but I’ll try to keep updating and get into a more regular routine.

In other news, thanks for over 2,400 views! That is awesome!

Introduction

July 29, 2008

Hey all. The main focus of this blog is to provide easy access to all of our worship music. Anyone who is not in S.O.A.R. can feel free to use it as well. I claim no rights to any of the music, chords, etc. presented here.

Each time I post new chords, I’ll try also to include a lyrics sheet, for singers who don’t like to look at the chords.

Hopefully I’ll be able to update relatively frequently.
