How you measure success in worship leading is a debatable area.

And it is something that could be different for each person, and especially depends on the type of church you are leading worship in!

So How Do You Measure Success in Worship?

OK, let’s get right down to it…Is it how many hands are raised, is it how many compliments you get after the service, or is it something far less tangible like how you feel the worship leading went?

Success in worship is discussed at length in this pod, but we also recognise that the true measure of success is not hands raised or feet tapping, but hearts actually engaged with the Lord in genuine worship.  Erick and Darin discuss how this manifests in various churches, and how you can achieve real success in your worship leading week in and week out!

This podcast explores the measures we use for success, which ones are valid and we do a fascinating double top 5 on the reliable and unreliable indicators of success. If you want to become a great worship leader, you need to hear this pod…

And you should not forget, there’s an astounding worship leader training college which can be available to you a small fraction of the price of going to Bible College.

This is actually a complete 6 month course covering all that you should know to lead a worship team, from selecting the right songs, joining and arranging songs and going up keys, right through to management of the band, handling personalities, conflicts, encouragement and the rest.

Worship leading Holy cowAs someone who teaches worship leading all around the world, I am frequently asked some worship leading holy cows… in other words, controversial questions. Many of these are things that are dear to the heart of many worship leaders, or things that they have been taught are truths, but the reality is that they are not.

 

So, in the name of a bit of good natured butchery and possibly a barbeque with some yummy steaks, I want to slay a few of the Holy Cows we worship leaders hold near and dear.

 

We must do the Latest Songs

 

In an effort to be current, hip, groovy and cutting edge, we always want to do the latest songs from the latest CDs. I like many of the latest songs, but our calling as worship leaders is not to teach new songs but to lead people in worship. By all means, do new songs, but sprinkle them through your service and surround them with songs people know and love.

 

Would you rather be cutting edge or lead anointed, powerful and life changing worship?

 

We have to do songs as they are arranged on the CD or YouTube

 

This one, frankly, is a really stupid Holy Cow, worthy of barbequing… Even the band that recorded the CD you are trying to emulate does it differently a month down the track! If you love the CD version so much, just put it on and have your congregation sing to that.

 

You are better to make the song your own! Start with what the CD does, then change it so your band and your style is represented, and your team is creating beautiful music (depending on how good your team might be!)

 

We have to have a session of open or free worship

 

Do we? I mean, I love free worship and I love when the Holy Spirit takes over, but most of what I have ever heard has been forced rather than the Holy Spirit taking control, and I think if we are totally honest, we have all been guilty of this at some time.

 

Once you have experienced a true move of the Spirit, the fake version just seems, well… faked! Are you brave enough to have a worship time without free worship? If you are, then you can reserve free worship for the times when it truly is free, no coerced!   I know, radical thought, but it is another Holy Cow we cling to that needs to be barbequed!

 

We have to do all the songs we have planned

 

We start with a list of songs we want to do in our service, and we go through them no matter what like they are a Holy Calling! We need to butcher this cow as well, because a truly anointed worship leader has to be flexible, and also has to be listening to the Holy Spirit, not the worship leading holy cows!

 

OK, start with a play list, that’s fine. But it is not written in blood! It is not Holy Scripture! Be ready to change and be open to listen, to read your congregation and adjust as the Spirit leads you.

 

So if a song is going great, do an extra chorus or two. If it is going poorly, or going nowhere, if people are checking their cell phones rather than singing, bail out and move to the next song. I doesn’t mean it is a bad song, it’s just not what is happening that morning.

 

And it you go too long, don’t finish your list of songs, finish the worship service. Going overtime without permission from the pastor is dishonouring to your leadership, the congregation and even the Lord. Keep to time, even if you have to cut a song or two!

 

So, after slaying these Holy Cows, I hope that worship leaders are open to the Holy Spirit and ready to follow Him into the most anointed and powerful worship your church has ever experienced. Worship leaders, follow the Holy Spirit, not the worship leading Holy Cows!

136- Unmet Expectations

Expectations UnmetWhen you have unmet expectations you will have people upset and dissatisfied, whether it’s people in your congregation, or whether it’s you!  How do you make sure your congregation’s expectations for worship are met, and how do you handle it if your expectations of the pastor are unmet.

 

We all want to have our expectations met, but you may have been leading worship for a long time with little or no recognition, or you may have just been passed over for a position you know you are perfect for.  How do you manage this disappointment, and how do you faithfully keep on serving when it seems like everything you are doing is in vain?

If you are looking for worship leading training then chances are you are already a worship leader yourself.  You may have started leading the congregation having watched others before you, only to find that when you start things are not as easy as you may have thought they would be.

 

When you start out the choice you face is that you can wait and learn ‘on the job’, making your own mistakes and learning from them over a number of years, or you can seek the advice of an experienced leader and gain some valuable worship leading training from them.  This approach shortens the time, lessens the embarrassment and improves your ability beyond anything you can achieve yourself.

Why Is Worship Leading Training Necessary?

 

Finding the right worship leading training is a great way to fast track your ability and talent.  You may have some talent already, but if you do the right kind of worship leading training can make sure that you develop in a way that maximizes God’s ability to use you and your gift.

 

Yet with so many people all claiming that they can help you improve your worship leader abilities, what is the best type of worship leading training you can obtain?  Is it going to a conference, doing a workshop, listening to a worship leader podcast or buying a book?  Sure, you recognize that training can fast track your leading abilities, but which is the best way to go?

 

What is Effective Worship Leading Training?

 

Worship Leading TrainingDifferent people learn in different ways, and this will change your view of the most effective training.  Some like conferences, some like videos and some prefer to read.  However, I believe that the real power of the most effective worship leading training is the ability to learn the concentrated essence of the task.  No fluff, no hype, just a constant and steady stream of easy to apply tips and techniques which can dramatically affect your ability and talent.  The second element is the ability to go back quickly and easily and retrain or relearn points.

 

So, conferences and workshops are fun and you will pick up a few things, but they lack the ability of being able to review the information time and again until it becomes part of who you are.  The most effective worship leading training is material that you can read, reread and apply so that you can constantly improve your abilities.  No one is able to take in everything all of the time, so having this ability to review and selectively apply the information is important.

 

Get Worship Leading Training Fast!

 

If you find the right material that allows you to review and selectively apply the valuable information you learn, then you will find that you can improve your worship leader abilities very, very quickly.  If you are new to the field, don’t be content to make continuous mistakes when you can obtain material which can save you a lot of time, embarrassing moments and frustration!

 

If you want to become a powerful and effective worship leader in double quick time the I would suggest that you don’t simply attend a few workshops or conferences.  Take the plunge, step out by faith and get a hold of the right material, because you can rapidly increase your abilities if you obtain the right worship leading training today!
