Systems, processes, routines, and schedules. Most worship leaders run and cower in fear at the mere mention of such "structured" words. We are creatives. We like our lives to be free and flowing. But the truth is, you can't have a healthy ministry without solid and effective administrative systems and routines. The results you are currently getting…
 
Many churches are lacking (and even losing) young people. But you don’t want that to be your church’s story. You are a leader who cares about reaching and engaging the next generation.

Worship leaders are called to be worshippers first, leaders second. But sadly many of us have it backward. We perform the duty of being a worship leader, without learning to first be a worshipper. Honestly, how is your personal devotional life with the Lord? How are your private times of worship? Do you have a hard time communing with God when it’s…
 
So many worship leaders are stuck leading worship every single Sunday. They have no one to back them up or fill in for them. This means they never get a break, which leads to exhaustion and burnout. Why do so many worship leaders have such a hard time raising up others to take our place? What should we be looking for in potential new leaders, and h…

Singing is a huge part of what we do as worship leaders. Yet most of us never received any formal training on how to properly use our voice. This leads to a lack of range, power, control, and endurance; none of which are good when leading others in song! Thankfully all of these problems can be corrected by some simple training. Charmaine Brown from…
 
Singing is a critical part to our role as worship leaders, so the more we can learn how to care for our voice, the more confident we can be in communicating our message.

We were created to create! We reflect our Creator’s image and imagination by creating and being creative. God allows us to influence His story in the world through what we “output” via our creativity. Art has an impact! As musicians, singers, songwriters, set designers, and “creatives”, it’s vital that we have a Biblical understanding of art and it…
 
Not having enough people to cover all the bases on a Sunday morning is a constant problem for all of us. I've yet to meet a worship pastor that doesn't struggle with finding enough dependable people to play in the worship band and fulfill all the audio/video needs in the tech booth. In this episode, I share all the tricks I've learned over the last…
 
Many of our worship sets have become so pre-planned that worship has become an act of simply executing the songs one after another. How do we move deeper into worship and patiently pursue the Holy Spirit's leading during a set? How do we move past performance to actually pursuing God's presence? And practically, how do we do that when we only have …
 
One could say the most important member of the band is the person running sound. They're the ones taking the stage inputs and crafting them into something that is musical and impactful, so how a worship pastor and the audio engineer work together can have a significant impact on the overall effectiveness of the worship band. Jeff Sandstrom has been…
 
Every week, worship leaders gather in a room filled with people to do something. What is it? Why do we gather? What is corporate worship supposed to look like? What is it supposed to accomplish? Biblically speaking, what should we do while gathered? Which elements should we include in our services? In what order? And what long term outcomes are we …
 
We all want our worship ministries to be a thriving part of the church's mission. What's required to make that happen typically has less to do with Planning Center and gear and more to do with how you as the leader shape the culture of that ministry. How are you pouring into the people you're leading? Drew Powell is the creative pastor at Cross Poi…

What are some common mistakes new leaders make? We talk about all of that and more in this month’s episode! Enjoy! And remember, being a worship leader is more abo…

Kyle O'Neal is one of the worship pastors at Life.Church, and in our conversation we talk about the importance of investing in the people in your church and how…
 
What do tabernacles, sacrifices, incense, and priests have to do with worship? Well, EVERYTHING! The worship practices of the Old Testament may seem like strange, confusing, and barbaric ways to worship, but when understood correctly we gain a deeper understanding of what God wants from us as worship leaders. Instead of looking to social media prof…

This question came from our Worship…
