Making the Shift from Songwriter to Movement Writer- A Word by Dean Mitchum



If you’ve been struggling with songwriters block it may be time to make a
shift from being a songwriter to becoming a movement writer.

You’re called to burn like a star but you feel more like a candle. The
fire of the current worship movement is slowly losing its heat and
you’re searching for something new.

Psalm 45:1 (NKJV)

My heart is overflowing with a good theme; I recite my composition concerning the King;
My tongue is the pen of a ready writer.

Maybe you need a new position to write from. Maybe you need a to
perspective to write from. Maybe God is calling you out like a star
because your flame needs a whole new source with a new kind of fuel.
The fuel of a movement writer.

2 Samuel 23:2 (NKJV)

“The Spirit of the Lord spoke by me, And His word was on my tongue.

Movement Writers write songs that cause the church to move forward.
Movement Writers quicken the spirit within the believers causing new
life, new breath, and awaken us to where the church is going.

We move forward as individuals and as a corporate body. The church in
each nation and the church globally.

Some of you have felt conflicted and you have not found your home. You
haven’t heard the home sound yet. Once you hear it you will feel at
home. Once you write it you will feel resolved.

Movement Writers hear the conflict between what is and what is to be.
They are prophetic and write toward the future. They seek the sound of
home. They write to resolve the conflict and fulfill the expectation of

Characteristics of a Movement Writer

  1. They are awakened by new revelation. When prophets and apostles
    preach new messages of revelation something awakens within the
    songwriter and they want to put that message to music.
  2. They carry the spirit of the revelation, not just write it. As
    movement writers we don’t just put that message to music, it is
    something that we have revelation of and the authentic authority
    rings true in the sound of the song.
  3. They write for more revelation. There’s something incredible that
    happens when we write. It seems to release more revelation (Ps
  4. They write toward the future, generations ahead. David demonstrated
    new covenant worship for future generations. His songs prophesied
    about Jesus. This is why Acts 15:16 declared God was restoring the
    Tabernacle of David.
  5. They burn with a musical fire to prophesy. They prophesy on the
    instruments. They prophesy through songwriting. They prophesy
    according to the order of the King. The very words of their songs
    bring life through the voice of the Lord (2 Chron. 25 1-3).
  6. They are compelled to cause change. David wrote his way to a new
    day. In the midst of a cave and hiding from Saul song of change and
    breakthrough (Ps 57:8).
  7. They Understand the connection between sound and movement. Sound is
    movement and movement causes sound. When God stirs and move he
    releases new sound to go with that movement.

The Sound of the Third Reformation

Within the third global apostolic reformation movement is a worship
reformation movement. That worship reformation is transitioning us from
the Tabernacle of David to the Tabernacle of God.

This is where the new perspective and positioning is found. The
Tabernacle of God from Rev. 21.3 is the seed for writing the next
movement songs.

As Acts 15:16 was key to the discovery of David’s tabernacle, Rev. 21.3
is the seed to discovering God’s tabernacle.

God is calling forth a new generation of songwriting movement writers.
They are not content to write songs that only comfort they are burning
to write songs that awaken the worshipers and move the church forward.

This is your next awakening. This is your next reformation. This is
your next movement. Join the movement, write the movement!
