National Worship Leader Conference: Video about my workshop “Six Hats”

Worship Leader Media interviewed me about the workshop I will be teaching at the National Worship Leaders Conference in Escondido, California next month (October 9-11). Here is a 3-minute cut of that interview. Embedded in the video is a code for 12% off the registration.

Worship Conference in Oceanside October 13!


The Worship Conference, SoCal on October 13 is a one day event that is very affordable. If you are a smaller church, this might be a time to bring your whole team. Even lunch is included.

Discounts are not a bad thing, right? If you are out west in October here is an event for you worship leaders. On top of being what I think will be a powerful one day event, I’m going myself and would love to meet you. I am teaching two workshops. I would love to see you!

Besides hosting this podcast, I also have for the last seven years written and published a blog titled “Rich Kirkpatrick’s Weblog” which is now “Rich Kirkpatrick’s Blog.” Here is the scoop:

I launched Rich Kirkpatrick’s Weblog about seven years ago. Back then, “weblog” meant something, and my name was easy to recall since fewer people blogged back in the first decade or the 2000s. But, now its time to rebrand, relaunch and help a whole new crew of readers find me in the noisy world of the WWW. So, my blog “” is now “ and if you forget that, well the 301 redirects will get you here. But, doesn’t that URL rock?!

In 2010 a web developer and friend coded a site and designed the look of my blog for me and I wanted to badly to have the URL When I found out it was available I was so excited until the price tag for bidding started above $2000 for the aged domain. A wholesaler of domains was kind enough to allow me to have a bulk price, even after the sale ended. And, presto, for under $100 I have!

So, PLEASE, if you already link to this blog, please change to If yousubscribe, all feed coding will follow. Thanks to so many of you that have encouraged me to keep writing and who have engaged in meaningful, life-changing conversation these past years. Here is to another seven years…at least!

Drink The Divine – Some of you might be surprised at how good this EP actually is!

I am humbled by some of the feedback I have been receiving on my recent EP release “Drink The Divine.” As a blogger and writer, many of you have known that I lead worship and such. But, it is likely that few of you have heard of my original material. The five-song EP is offered FREE for you to download and share. Please, donate on Noisetrade, or purchase a copy on one of the available outlets such as iTunes or Amazon if you enjoy it. And, you my friends are the only distribution that I have, so spread the word!

Here are some very nice things people have said about the project! Continue reading “Drink The Divine – Some of you might be surprised at how good this EP actually is!”

WordPress, Standard Theme 3.0 is a sweet combo thanks to the guys at 8BIT

New Standard Theme 3.0 WordPress Screenshot

This podcast/blog has been updated and facelifted with Standard Theme 3.0. I already have moved my main blog, Rich Kirkpatrick’s Weblog to Standard Theme and it looks great. Now that 3.0 is out, I am happy to move to the upgraded platform.

WordPress is a web 2.0, PHP-driven platform that is open-sourced and international. I self-host several sites. What makes WordPress work well is having a well-tuned theme chock full of features while being lean in the coding area. Thanks to the guys at 8BIT, the WordPress platform works so well for me.
