Song Discovery Is

Part of the Worship Leader Media suite of resources. At Song Discovery, we carefully sift through the vast amount of music being produced in the Church today and share the songs that most impact you.

It is a place for you to discover new songs and obtain the necessary resources with the purpose of leading a service of worship, encouraging your congregation to sing their prayers as the body of Christ.

For years Song Discovery has delivered the best/freshest new music for your Sunday service of worship delivered along with Worship Leader magazine. And now you’ll get the same valuable selection service, only faster, easier and with double the content plus the limitless resource possibilities of the Song Discovery Hymnal.
