Your job is equal parts preparation and inspiration. CCLI helps with both.
The church’s leadership count on you to pull it all together. To support their message. To engage the congregation. To make it all look effortless. And typically, you’ve got less than a week to do it.
CCLI makes your job easier and supports your efforts by providing direct access to an extensive library of licensed Christian content and media; ranging from transposeable chord sheets, lead sheets and multi-part vocal sheets, to lyrics and audio samples for top songs.
From a copyright standpoint, the CCLI® Church Copyright Licence™ gives you legal permission to reproduce many thousands of worship songs and hymns. It enables you to create custom arrangements for instruments where no published version is available. It allows you to record your services, including the worship, as a keepsake or for those unable to attend.
For worship leaders, musical directors, musicians and your multimedia team, SongSelect® provides an extensive catalogue of sheet music, chord charts, lyrics and samples available to encourage participation and share the Word of God through music and media. It helps when SongSelect draws from more than 100,000 songs of worship. You’ll reduce the time, the effort, and the cost involved in locating, reproducing, and distributing songs or videos needed to enhance congregational worship.
In addition to providing the assurance you need to prepare for Sunday (and each day in between), you’ll take some comfort in knowing that the songwriters you love—those who you want to share with your congregation—are also being rewarded for the musical gifts they provide to you.
