About Us

Think bigger about your faith and ministry. We Christians do ministry in incredibly different ways. But you wouldn’t know if it you only talk with people in your own circle. The monthly Music and the Church podcast connects thoughtful people across denominations and across professions, from pastors and musicians, to theologians and historians. These conversations don’t just bring you answers—they shed light on new and different questions, assumptions, and priorities.

Latest Episodes

Music and Faith in a Post-Secular Age with Jonathan Arnold

Hymns: In Hymnals? On Screens? (Paperless?!)

So often we knee-jerk on hymn media options - assuming something about belief when we talk about hymnals and screens. But there's a lot of nuance in our choices - and often what works for one congregation just doesn't for another. Join Sarah Bereza along with guest Crawford Wiley for a thoughtful conversation.

7 Church Leaders on What They Wish People Knew

A Peculiar Orthodoxy — Thinking about Music with Theologian Jeremy Begbie

“The great thing about a chord - you’re already dealing with something people enjoy. You’re not telling people God is a problem to be solved - you’re saying that the Trinity is a reality to be enjoyed.” - Jeremy Begbie. We discuss themes from Begbie’s recent book A Peculiar Orthodoxy: Reflections on Theology and the Arts, including how music can help us think about our faith, created beauty and creative beauty, and sentimentality.

J. J. Wright, Director of the University of Notre Dame Folk Choir

J. J. Wright is a Grammy-Award winning jazz musician, composer of O Emmanuel, an album which debuted at the top of the Billboard Classical Charts, and he’s also a scholar of sacred music. We talk about his journey from military band member to directing the Notre Dame Folk Choir, and how his jazz skills and sacred musicianship have complemented each other. We also talk about how the music we make can reflect our deepest beliefs about what the Church is — what does the music of the Church sound like if we believe the Church is Christians at all times and in all places?

Welcoming People with Disabilities in Church Music Ministry, with Pastor Lisa Heffernan

We believe that people — all people — are made in the image of God. Full stop. So, when we’re talking about how to make our churches more inclusive, we aren’t talking about welcoming people even though they have disabilities or even though they are children. The goal is making our programs better reflect our theology. The goal is living out our beliefs about what it means to be human, and what it means to love and serve God in community with our siblings in Christ.
