A private network of Worship Leaders from around the world.
Leading through cultural upheaval is uncharted for all of us. Let's do it together.
What is Mere Worship?
100+ teaching videos, forums, groups and new friends—outside of the chaos of Facebook.
For the last 20 years, 10KFAM Worship School and Aaron Keyes have brought together Worship Leaders from around the world—walking with them for 18 months at a time, discipling them via Zoom, and strategically developing their church cultures from afar. This is different.
This platform of Mere Worship now allows our “living room” to be larger and more inclusive than ever before. No one is restricted by travel or cost, and new connections can form more easily than ever before.
We know how textured and nuanced things can be from one place to the next, from one season to the next, and from one leader to the next. Let’s hop in here together to brainstorm, learn from one another, and lead through these challenging times without burning ourselves out (or blowing our churches up in the process).
Many of the video modules also include teaching or stage notes to help you easily translate the content into your own context – to teach it to your team yourself, or incorporate practical skills into your leadership from stage.

Q: How do I pick songs for a specific passage of scripture my pastor is speaking on?
A: I’ll never understand a worship set that has nothing to do with the accompanying sermon. It is such a wasted opportunity when we arbitrarily pick songs that people may like yet don’t serve to orient us towards where the pastor is about to take us, or don’t pick up from where the sermon lands […]
Q: Should I talk between songs?
A: Look at the Psalms. Some of them have superscriptions before verse 1. Some don’t. Some have built-in interjections like, “Selah.” I like this because, sometimes, the last thing you need to hear, as a worshiper, is someone talking. But sometimes, it’s exactly what you most need. How do you know when’s which? As a […]
