Forgiving and releasing worship team members back into the team can be a touchy subject, especially when what they have done has caused a great deal of damage or offence.

But this must be our aim, when any of our worship team has fallen for whatever reason.  We are not there to punish, condemn and chastise, we are leading our teams to restore and forgive, but at times this is hard especially when the offence has affected other members of the team deeply.  So how do you balance the damage done with the desire of forgiving and releasing team members?

That’s what this week’s pod is discussing.  And as you will hear, there is not always a stable point of view in all this.  It is something you need to seek the Lord on and look to His leading and guidance when it comes to forgiving and releasing people back into ministry.

When can you accept a repentant worship team member back you are truly fulfilling your role as a leader, but how do you do this in a godly, kind yet firm way is the question.  Darin and Erick discuss this and much more today’s worship leader podcast…

Fake it til you make it as a worship leader? You Can’t be Serious?

OK, there are times you definitely don’t want to fake it til you make it, especially in your worship leading, but there are times when you can feel like you’re faking it but you’re actually walking in the path the Lord has for you, which hasn’t quite come true yet.

Make sense?

OK, maybe you are thinking that you are a genuine person and never a fake at anything.  That’s how I am too, but there is a sense in which you can look confident, together and sharp in your worship leading, but inside you’re actually scared and hesitant and worried that it is not going to go well.  So in that instance, you can fake it til you make it as a Worship Leader, and still not be a fake, right?

The main thing is that you probably need to listen to this week’s exciting podcast and find out when it’s OK to fake it til you make it…

Restoration to the worship team is always a touchy subject, and one which almost nobody thinks about until they are faced with the exact situation of a repentant team member who wants back in!

If you have a team member who has fallen away, perhaps they have been involved in ungodly activity, sexual sin, destructive behaviour or anything else, how and when do you attempt to restore them to ministry?

 

This pod discusses Restoration to the Worship Team, the time frame, the method of restoration and what to do and not do to allow an erring team member back onto the team.  We also look at how to deal with a talented worship team member who is heading the wrong direction… we explore the whole talent vs holiness debate, and talk about the unique problems that small churches face when your most talented singer or musician is behaving badly.

An interesting and thought provoking podcast is worth listening to…

Are you a Multi-Talented Worship Leader?

If you can do several or even many things well, choosing what you will do actually becomes a stress.

Now please understand, I am not saying that we are the best at everything on earth, or that we are God’s gift to every aspect of worship leading, but the fact remains that many of us do actually have many talents.  So the question we ask is, how do you manage these many talents, which do you prioritise and how does that even look when it comes to your worship team?

If you have several talents, and most often worship leaders do because that’s why their pastors chose them, then there are many good reasons to manage your own talents carefully.  First, for your own sanity and to avoid burnout, second so you can feel fulfilled but importantly, when you do something that means someone else is not being released to do it.  So what should you do, what should you delegate and what should you avoid?  All of these pressing questions will be answered in this week’s exciting worship leader podcast!

So if you are the kind of worship leader who tends to be good at everything, and you need to make decisions and use the time you have effectively, you’re going to really get something out of this week’s podcast.  If you have less talents, that’s more than alright because you can concentrate on what you are god at and release others into what you struggle with, and that;s a terrific way to lead a successful worship team!

And don’t forget, we have loads of teaching on this and every other subject associated with worship leading in our incredible worship leader academy, which you can get access to for less than a cup of coffee a day. So give up a cuppa and learn to serve Jesus even more effectively today as a Multi-Talented Worship Leader!

Worship leader depression is something we all know, and know well (if we’re honest).

Being depressed is a common thing for everybody, but sometimes worship leader depression seems like the worst thing ever.

So why is it that worship leaders are so prone to feeling down about themselves and life in general?  That’s what today’s worship leader podcast is all about.  We are going to look at why we get depressed, what we are depressed about and how we can look to he Lord to drag us out of our depression.

And trust me worship leader depression is a common thing we all face!

Things don’t go well, people criticise, you get frustrated and before you know it, you’re depressed.  Your team let you down, and you get down. Your pastor conveys to you, either by speaking or just by a look, that you have let him down, and you too are left feeling down.

Oh man, I get depressed just thinking about it, don’t you?

So settle back with a nice calming beverage, maybe a latte or a sweet tea, and get ready to explore your emotions, feeling and hurts in this worship leader podcast.  And we promise to not leave you in the lurch coping with feelings of depression, but we have some great ideas on how you can look to the Lord and triumph over worship leader depression

 

 

And if you want to learn more about worship leader depression, and how can you deal with it in a godly way so that you might be down but not out, why not join us in our worship leader academy.  We teach all sorts of things, in fact pretty much everything you need to know as a worship leader, including the practicalities of how to arrange songs, lead bands and put together stunning worship, but also how to grow in your walk with God, how to encourage or discipline your team and, of course, how you can overcome worship leader depression and every other situation you might face.

Worship leaders, here’s some excellent teaching about how you can spice up your worship leading by using multiple worship leaders.

The Challenge of Multiple Worship Leaders!

In today’s pod, we discuss the advantage, disadvantages and how to set up a scenario whereby you have not one single leader but several leaders, and how you can interact and share the load.

This is a great way for you to add value to your worship leading, using the skills that your fellow worship band and team mates bring to the table.  I mean, who says that worship leaders have to lead everything from the front, especially when you have people on your team who can not only lead worship well, but add some variation and excitement to the whole process.  Somewhere along the line we have lost the concept of a team and instead elevated ourselves to a position where it is all about us and our skills.

Worship Leaders Inspire, Elevate and Encourage

Leadership is not about doing everything yourself.  The best leaders bring the best out of the people around them, and in the praise and worship ministry, his should mean developing the skills and talents of those who serve with you, or under you.  Having multiple worship leaders is a great way of encouraging others, developing others and also providing a new and interesting experience for your congregation.

It also helps take much of the burden from your shoulders, and is especially useful if you are struggling with a sore throat or restricted vocal range.  And the cool thing is that as you release others, you yourself will be blessed in the worship that you lead.  It’s a win-win situation, and we talk all about it on today’s worship leader podcast.

SO open your heart, open your mind and listen with a view to taking action and developing multiple worship leaders.

240- All About Free Worship

Free worship is an area that can be controversial, but can also be a beautiful part of  praise and worship leading.

But Many Churches Avoid Free Worship!

OK, I will be he first to admit that I have heard some pretty poor free worship in my time, and often it is forced, far from Spirit led and sees the congregation just checking their cell phones or staring at the band while the band does their thing!

Yet free worship can be effective worship, and it can lead your people to a place of worship they would never reach without it. It occurs when the congregation starts to sing their own song, and it can be anywhere from incredibly beautiful and anointed to forced and horrible!

How can you make free worship a part of your church worship?

So how can you take what is often forced and horrible and make it into something that’s inspiring and incredible? Well, all the secrets will be revealed on today’s worship leader podcast!

free worshipAnd those of you who are in more conservative churches, please don’t just switch off!  There’s loads of great information here for you also, and you can learn how to explore the introduction of simple, short and effective free worship, and let the Lord gradually allow your congregation to free their worship up!

This podcast is about how you can lead free worship effectively, even in a conservative congregation, and how to follow the Lord as you lead worship.  That’s right, you can even lead his stuff in a conservative church, if you do it subtly and with humility and grace (I know because I’ve done it myself before!)

It’s all happening on the worship leader podcast this week, so settle back and grab a coffee and listen to the boys…

Goliath: he comes in different forms for different people, but We all have Goliaths to face, those big tests, sins or people who come against us in our ministry. The pod team discuss and reveal their Goliaths, the ones they face every week as they serve, and show you how you can be an overcomer and a victor in your worship leading ministry…

Your Goliath needs dealing with!

So don’t sit around feeling defeated by these big monsters, because if you let him this big ugly dude will certainly try and destroy you.  Take the time and the opportunity to search your heart as to the biggest Goliaths you face, and ask the Lord for real clarity on how you can deal with them. Once you achieve a victory over one, the others don’t seem as big and nasty. Remember, you must not fight them alone but rather let the Holy Spirit within you fight each Goliath as they raise their ugly heads!

So worship leaders, don’t put up with an ugly

Goliath

staring you down every time you step onto the stage. You’re worth more than that!  Discover who or what it is, and start taking the steps to victory, not only on the stage but in every area of your life, your family, your work and or course church.

Remember, this big old giant is not out there to bless you or your ministry, and he’s not keen on giving you a big kiss! Make no mistake, this giant want you dead and buried, and your ministry shot down in flames!

So it is time to settle back, throw off your armour, pick up five smooth stones and discover how you can take the biggest issues and problems you face in your worship leading out with just one swing of he old sling.

Tell Goliath his number is up, and the Lord is taking over!
