Nobody likes it when ex members attack your ministry.It always hurts, and that’s a fact!

They may have left for any number of reasons, and they may even have left the church, but how do you respond when these ex members attacking your ministry?

In this week’s pod, we talk about how you should respond, as opposed to react, and we discuss godly ways you can love these people, even though they are attacking your ministry

How Do You React When Ex Members Attack Your Ministry?

This revealing and slightly painful podcast comes as a direct question to us from the Facebook page, and we’re betting that he is not the only one going through this right now!

I mean, when you become a worship leader you are going to face attack at some point, often from the very ones who were once closest to you and the ones you loved and believed in.  That’s all part of leadership, so don’t get discouraged, turn to the Lord and let Him do the worrying for you (you know He won’t of course!).

So settle back, relax and stop worrying about when ex members attack your ministry.  We have you covered here at the worship leader podcast, so check it all out now!

Going up Keys in worship leading can be one of the most exciting experiences a worship leader can have in their Ministry.

When you go up Keys in worship, you will notice that all of the congregation members will be straining a little bit harder to hit the notes, and usually will sing louder and with more commitment. However, the value of going up Keys in worship does not stop there.

The Magic of Going Up Keys in Worship Leading!

There is something spiritually amazing that happens when we go up a key. I can’t really explain it as a worship leader, but I know when I take songs that people know and go up Keys in worship, not only do people sing louder but also the spiritual atmosphere is raised accordingly.

In this podcast we are going to talk about the value of going up Keys in worship, how to do it and when best to apply this technique so that you get positive results from your worship leading. We hope to give you Keys about going up Keys that you will be able to apply starting this Sunday, and that will yield positive results from the very first time you do it.

So if you are not going up Keys in worship, you could be missing one of the best experiences and techniques for your Ministry!

And don’t forget, you can learn more about this and other exciting techniques that will improve your worship leading by attending our worship leader Academy. For a minuscule amount of money per month, you can do this comprehensive six-month course that will teach you all of the latest and greatest techniques for leading worship effectively in your church.

So don’t miss out, and make sure you are going up keys in worship effectively, starting this Sunday!

Coping with criticism of your worship leading is never going to be fun, but it is something that we all face, sometimes more often than we want to think about, right?

It’s a fact that no one likes to be criticised.  You don’t like it, and neither do I, and I don’t know many people running around saying joyfully, ” I love being criticised!” But when you face criticism of your worship leading, and you will, then you need to establish who is doing the criticising, why or what their agenda is, and is it valid.  Then you must ask the Lord how to respond in a godly and God honouring way.

OK, this all sounds good in theory, but how in the world do you do this when the criticism tore your heart to pieces?

Criticism of Your Worship Leading is Painful, but Often Powerful

Criticism of your worship leading is always going to hurt, especially if you’re a little sensitive like me (that’s not a joke, by the way, I really do feel i when others criticise me). Yet I have learned to respond in the right way, examine the validity of the critique, and have also learned that very often the one with the bigger problem is the one delivering the criticism, not me.

Well this podcast is for everyone who has been hurt but criticism, just or unjust, and we will show you how to not only cope but also use criticism to improve your worship leading…


And by the way, if you want to minimise criticism, there are some really simple things you can do which can decrease bad reports of your worship leading.  We are launching new teaching in the next week or so, and you can get your hands on this for free, so listen to today’s pod and truly learn how to cope with Criticism of Your Worship Leading

218- Worship Beyond Performance

Performance vs worship leading, it’s always a tension, so we wanted to look specifically at worship beyond performance.

Some of you say you don’t perform, you minister, but the fact is there is always an element of performance, like it or not. So performing is not bad or evil, it’s what we all do, but how can you worship beyond performance, anointing what you do and making it miraculous, no just a good performance?  That’s what this pod is all about

What is Worship Beyond Performance?

Worship beyond performance is not saying you cannot or should not perform, it’s the part that supernaturally comes after the performance bit.  In other words, it’s God checking in and using the performance you bring to lead people into an amazing encounter with the King of Kings!

So come on, grab a cup of coffee or tea, have a seat and check out the craziest podcasters this side of the Pacific!  You’ll not only learn a lot, improve your worship leading and gain confidence, you’ll have a bit of a laugh at the same time!

And while you’re at it, why not enroll to do our free webinar.  This is an online seminar that looks at the top ten ways you can improve your worship leading from zero to awesome.  It’s practical, it’s fun, it’s free and it can take your worship leading to the point where you go beyond performance… where you worship beyond performance!

217- Fear in Worship Leading

This pod is about fear in worship leading…

What do you fear when it comes to your worship leading?

Now, some of you might think you are fearless, but I have been leading worship for years, in front of some pretty big crowds, and I can tell you that whether there is 10 or 10,000 people out there, I still sense some fear when it comes to worship leading.

If you experience fear, this is not lack of faith or a failure on your part.  The team discusses how this is normal, and can in fact be an encouragement to your faith, and the chance to really trust the Lord rather than yourself and your abilities.

Your fear in worship keeps you humble, and relying totally on God when you worship lead!

We all fear something, maybe that the songs do not flow, or the people seem disinterested or even something as simple as breaking a string or going flat on a high note.  In this revealing pod, the team open up and reveal their secret fears, just for you…

And don’t forget, one way to overcome fear in worship leading is to get training, and our online academy is the best way to get fantastic training for a fraction of the cost of Bible school.  We will teach you everything you need to know that will give you confidence when you walk onto stage to lead, so overcome fear in worship leading by joining our academy today

And you can get free training by watching our instructive online seminar or webinar, where I will personally take you through  how you can get from zero to great worship leading in no time flat!  Check it out now and transform your worship leading today, and overcome fear in worship leading by having the confidence o do a great job because you have the right skills!

Xmas, or more appropriately Christmas, comes but once a year, which is probably good because it tries many worship leaders nuts trying to organise Christmas carols for their band.

If you are like me, you especially just hate the whole replacing Jesus with an X side of Christmas, so it becomes Xmas.

This podcast is about putting Jesus back into your Christmas celebrations and worship leading, and we also explore the controversial world of including the fat guy in the red suit.

We have joined by the ever popular Suzie, and apart from the usual Christmas controversies, this is a really fun pod that every worship leader who has to do with Christmas must listen to!

So settle back, grab some eggnog, Christmas pudding or even mince pies and enjoy today’s worship leader podcast.

And why not buy yourself a present for Christmas (as opposed to Xmas)?

I’m all up for making worship leading easier, and technology can help to do this.

It can also make your life more miserable!  Technology is absolutely a double edged sword, so today we take a look at what technologies are available and how you can use them in your worship for good, not for evil!

So whether it is sound, lights, instruments or microphones, technology seems to just roll on, and if you discover how to use it effectively, it can make worship leading easier and even more enjoyable.

This is not to say that technology makes your worship leading more anointed, or in any way replaces the Holy Spirit, it’s just fun and it can make life easier, so you can concentrate on the Holy Spirit and His leading in worship more.

Make Worship Leading Easier by Embracing Technology, no Fighting it!
