Keeping your heart right before God is something every worship leader must do, but it is a lot easier to say than it is to do it!

Why is Keeping Your  Heart Right So Difficult?

Keeping a right attitude is never easy with the pressures of serving the Lord in your chosen field of worship leading.  You get criticisms, compliments, and loads of advice from well-meaning people, most of whom do not have a clue about leading powerful worship in your church!

With so much activity around your worship leading, and so many opinions, is it any wonder that keeping your heart right before the Lord is not an easy thing.  In this week’s podcast we talk about how you can keep that right attitude and heart as you serve in your ministry week by week.

There are many pressures on our hearts, and if we are not careful things like pride and arrogance can quickly come to the fore. Worship leading is an up front ministry, and so keeping your heart right is an essential part of serving the proper way.  Learn more about serving with the right attitude by listening in now!

And also do not forget, we have an astounding worship leader training school which is open to you a fraction of the cost of going to Bible College.

It is a complete 6 month course covering all that you should know to lead a worship team, from selecting the best songs, joining and arranging songs and going up keys, to management of the worship team, dealing with personalities, conflicts, encouragement and just about anything.

So if you are leading worship in any capacity, don’t stumble in the dark! For just $29.77 a month obtain the training you need to not just survive, but end up being the worship leader you are destined to be.

Single instrument worship leading, when you lead with only a single instrument like a guitar or piano, might seem like a challenge, but this exciting podcast shares some of the advantages and awesome things that can happen when all of your team lets you down and it becomes just you and a single instrument.

Is Single Instrument Worship Leading Good or Bad?

In this discussion, we look at the positives of only using one instrument when you are worship leading. Now I’m not saying you should fire your band and drop back to a single guitar or piano, but there are some definite advantages when you do this, and sometimes change is as good as a holiday, right?

Even in big concerts by famous people, who have huge bands and productions worth millions of dollars, and who have the best of the best musicians and singers, there is often a time where they grab a single acoustic guitar, or sit at a single piano and share an intimate song or two.  There is something revealing, simple and strangely intimate about having just one instrument, and today’s pod explores the various ways we can use this close feeling and gentle intimacy to draw people even closer to the Lord in worship!

So if you are in a small church where you might face this regularly, or if you lead in small groups where a single instrument is the norm, the team shares how you can make single instrument worship the best!  Don’t despise the day of small beginnings, let God use you to draw His people near so that they can worship and honour Him in a special way through the use of single instrument worship leading…

And also do not forget, there’s an superb worship leader training academy which is available to you a fraction of the price of going to Bible College.

It will be a complete 6 month course covering all you need to know to lead a worship team, from choosing the right songs, joining and arranging songs and going up keys, right through to management of the team, managing personalities, conflicts, encouragement and just about anything.

If you’re leading worship in any capacity, don’t stumble in the dark! For just $29.77 a month obtain the training you need to not just make do, but end up being the worship leader you’re destined to be.

This might sound a bit over the top, but in this podcast, we are going to look at how your ability to handle and give criticism can have a major effect on the life of your team, and overall on how effective your worship leading ministry is.

Psalm 133 talks about the powerful effect unity can have on your ministry, whatever your ministry might be, and I can tell you that mishandling the ways in which you give criticism to your team members can greatly affect unity, and therefore the power and effectiveness of everything you do!

So, every worship leader needs to hear this important podcast and learn how you can not only give critis=cism in a constructive and godly way, but also how you can bring the very best from your team in a way that doesn’t upset them, but actually, makes them love you even more!

Worship disasters happen, doesn’t matter who you are or where you are ministering, at some point things are going to go wrong!

Therefore, if you are smart, rescuing worship disasters is something you had better know a thing or two about!

Inevitably, something at some time will go wrong, and rescuing the situation is a skill we all need.  No matter who you are, you need to listen to today’s podcast and learn how to deal with disasters when they come…

And for some of us, worship disasters are a regular occurrence. It doesn’t really matter what the issue of the moment is, the real question is how do you handle such a worship disaster?

Handling Worship Disasters

When things mess up, what do you do? Do you freeze, do you blame others or do you step up and take responsibility, and make it right? Do you pray, or do you panic? Do you sign or do you scream at someone?

Handling these worship disasters is a key part of your worship leading, and can make the difference between been an OK leader and a super one.  Every time you don’t handle things correctly, your team, your pastor, and the congregation all start to doubt you and your ability, even your anointing!

Inevitably, something at some time will go wrong, and rescuing the situation is a skill we all need.

So today, do yourself and your worship leading skills a huge favour and listen up good because when it all goes wrong, you really want to actually know what you are doing, don’t you?

No matter who you are, you need to listen to today’s podcast and learn how to deal with disasters when they come…

The changing face of worship leading in the church is, well… changing constantly!

New styles, new ideas, new songs, the list goes on and on. How do you lead worship with integrity in the face of constant change, and how can you harness the changes to make your worship leading more effective, both now and long into the future.

Worship Leading in the Church is Different Now


Worship leading and the church is completely different to what it was years ago. Gone are the days when we conduct the sky and rely on the organ, with many modern churches presenting a world class musical and vocal performance.

In the face of such changes in the church, how do you as a worship leader prepare the hearts of your people to lead them into a deeper experience of worship, despite the way in which we now present our music?

This exciting podcast examines the type of changes that are currently happening, and how you can not only survive them but also thrive in the midst of the constant change that is our modern society.

There are some aspects of worship leading in the church that we must never change and that you must adhere to, and there are some aspects of change that we must embrace in order to continue communicating effectively with our congregations.

So if you’re not sure which is which, tune into this week’s podcast and discover how, in the midst of change you can improve the effectiveness of your worship leading in church.

But wait! You don’t have to find yourself getting stale in worship!  You can keep worship and indeed worship leading fresh, alive and fun if you approach it in the right ways.  So this podcast is full of practical suggestions that can make a major difference in the way you face worship, in the way you manage the team, and even the way you face life!

Making Christmas Worship Leading relevant is always the challenge at this time of year.

Leading worship at Christmas time is often so different to your normal church services.  The songs are different, the service is different, often shorter, but the expectations are always very high at Christmas.  On the plus side, people tend to know the songs, but on the minus side, many of these songs have been played to death through the years and some people are just over them… including a lot of worship leaders!  Isn’t it time to make them fresh again?

You always have people there who only ever attend church once a year.  So do you give them a nice, cute carol singing experience, or do you seize the opportunity to challenge them about things that are more important than the giving and receiving of presents?

So how can you make Christmas Worship Leading relevant, powerful and life changing for those who are “once a year” attendees?  And how can you make the same ol’ same ol’ of Christmas carols something special for you and your congregation.  Find out in this exciting podcast…

In this podcast, we look at the Changes in Worship Leading we all face at some time, whether they are of our own making, or whether the changes have been forced upon us.  Sometimes the pastor will want you to change something, or make that everything, about a worship service.  Sometimes you have to change midstream.

Sometimes the pastor will want you to change something, or make that everything, about a worship service.  Sometimes you have to change midstream, on the fly, and you find yourself adapting to the environment.

If you are in ministry at all, at some point you are going to have to face Changes in Worship Leading.

In this pod, we look at how you can not only handle Changes in Worship Leading, but how you can embrace them and shine through the changes to not only survive but to thrive in your worship leading…
