Shawn Bigby Releases New Book on Worship
Shawn Bigby is the creator of worship music that generates atmospheres of freedom and unrestrained worship. Many Gospel artists have recorded his songs, including Jason Nelson, Earnest Pugh, Hart Ramsey & The NCC Family Choir, and Marvin Sapp, who recorded “Great and Mighty” on his 2021 Dove Award-winning CHOSEN VESSEL album. Shawn is also a recording artist who landed on the Billboard Top 30 Gospel Albums Chart with his debut EP #THESETLIST VOL. 1.
With a desire for others to experience God at higher and deeper levels of worship, Shawn serves as the Creative Arts Director at Right Direction Church International in Columbia, SC, under the leadership of Drs. Herbert and Marcia Bailey. He travels the globe conducting various workshops and clinics, assisting ministries and worship leaders in worship and vocal techniques to assure that congregations have a meaningful encounter with God.
There are multiple layers to Shawn’s teachings that develop the skilled and dedicated leaders needed for corporate worship. Derived from his experience, insight, and anointing, Shawn can offer tools to guide ministries to connect the worshipper further to embrace the raw presence of God through the Word and theologically based music. His teachings will now be available through his first book THE PLATFORM: ON & OFF – A Blueprint For Worship Facilitators.
THE PLATFORM: ON & OFF encourages self-examination and provides opportunities to build and expand your leadership muscles as you lead others into the presence of God. This comprehensive book is a guide for anyone who operates in worship ministry or facilitates worship, including worship leaders, pastors, choir members, praise teams, and musicians.
“In his book, Shawn defines and explains the elements that are the make or break of great worshipers and worship leaders,” says Dr. Teresa Hairston, Founder/Publisher Emeritus of Gospel Today Magazine, Founder of Gospel Heritage Foundation, and CEO of Books2liveby.com. “From managing one’s heart to handling opportunities, Shawn provides critical assistance, information, and inspiration. I personally recommend this book to all worshipers. I have seen Shawn implement these principles, and I know they will help you!”
