Your job is equal parts preparation and inspiration. CCLI helps with both.
The church’s lead pastor counts on you to pull it all together. To support the church’s 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 transposable chord sheets, lead sheets and vocal sheets, to lyrics and audio samples for top songs.
From a copyright standpoint, the CCLI Copyright License allows you to legally copy and share commercial and custom audio recordings for rehearsal purposes. In the U.S., the CCLI Copyright License even enables web streaming and podcasts to be published to the internet. It puts a more compelling church service within reach.
For worship leaders, musical directors and musicians within the church, CCLI and SongSelect provides an extensive catalog of sheet music, chord charts, lyrics and samples available to inspire performance and share the word of God through music and media. It helps when SongSelect draws from more than 100,000 of the most endearing songs of worship. You’ll reduce the time, the effort, and the cost involved in locating, reproducing, and distributing any song or video asset 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 artists you love—those who you want to share with your congregation—are also being rewarded for the musical gifts they provide to you.
