101- How to Upgrade Your Sound System

When you upgrade your sound system at church, it can be a confusing ordeal, with experts having a variety of opinions.

Who Do You Believe When You Have to Upgrade Your Sound System?

OK, there are a million experts, each with their own opinions.  And guess what, every opinion involves spending a lot of money.  Money which most churches do not have at their disposal!

In this pod, we talk about what you actually need to upgrade your sound system to make it modern, clear and rich in its sound. We cut through the confusion and examine low cost, high quality additions that most churches can actually afford.

And let’s face it, there are loads of different places you can put your money when it comes to sound equipment.  The thing is, you want to have the best bang for back you can get, making sure that what you do buy is going to be great value for money, practical and above all, give you the best sound you can possibly have for the least amount of money.

So if you want to upgrade anything, from on stage to front of house, from speakers to sound desks, from mics to instruments, then listen to this 12 minutes and make the right choices, and the most effective choices.  Check it out now…

99- Arranging a Song

Arranging a song is where the art of being a worship leader is well seen.

And Arranging a Song is Also Fun!

In church, we all sing many of the same songs, but it is in the arrangements where we as worship leaders get a license to be creative, and innovative.

You might start slow, or upbeat. You might go up a key. You might even change the whole style of what you play, making the worship song a rock song, or a ballad, or reggae! There is not set way to do an individual song, so this is where your creative juices can begin to flow.

As a worship leader, I can tell you that there is nothing quite like arranging a song in a new way that touches people’s hearts more effectively.  It is something we should all strive to achieve, and it is something all of us can do to a great or lesser extent, whether we have 2 band members or a 50 voice choir.

This pod is all about arranging worship sings so they are new, fresh, innovative and most of all, yours and your churches. Don’t just churn out what some other group has put on YouTube, learn to arrange songs to make them special, and individual for your people…

96- Answering Your Critics

Any public office in the church will have critics.  Worship leaders are no different. If you have ever lead worship, you have probably faced criticism from some party somewhere, most of whom cannot sing or play, but feel they have the right to critique your ministry.

Critics are All Around

From the senior pastor right through to the humblest member of the church, everyone faces criticism at some point.  If you are criticised for your ministry gift, for the worship, the music, the sound the presence of God or anything else, then you are not alone.

It is how you answer the critics that can really set you and your ministry apart!

The huge tendency is to fire back, especially when the criticism comes from someone who has little knowledge of what it is like to minister in worship.  However, I can guarantee you that this is not the best way to handle such a critique.  How you respond says more about you and your relationship with God than anything else, so responding in a godly and humble way is essential.

Handling these critics with godliness and humility can be challenging, but this podcast will give you some insights into how you can handle your critics in the right way.

95- Your Vision for Your Ministry

What is your vision for your ministry?  Do you even have one?

Vision for Your Ministry is Essential!

The Bible tells us,

Where there is no prophetic vision the people cast off restraint,
but blessed is he who keeps the law. (Proverbs 29:18).

You need a vision to help focus and direct your steps, but you need also to be sure that it is God’s vision for your life and ministry, not just what you want to see happen.

If you have nothing before you, you just go through the motions, or falter all over the place, not sure where you are headed, what you want to achieve and even if it is all worth it!

Vision for what you are doing for the Lord is key in moving you ahead, directing where your team is going, and setting the direction for the church in worship.  This important issue is discussed in today’s podcast, so don’t miss it!

94- Using Multiple Worship Leaders

Using multiple worship leaders during one service can be a very effective and exciting addition to your church.

Using Multiple Worship Leaders is Great for Everyone!

Not only can using several worship leaders in a single service be wonderful for bringing new leaders through, but it can also become a feature for the entire church to enjoy.

It can become a feature for the congregation, where different voices lead different songs, each bringing their own style and interpretation of the material.  If variety is the spice of life, then having more than one worship leader at once is a truly great thing for the audience to enjoy.

What a great way to bring through younger and less experienced worship leaders

93- The Role of the Worship Director

A Worship director is an essential person for the development and training of your worship team.  Sometimes they are worship leaders, and some are singers or musicians, but this does not need to be the case.

Worship Directors are Worth their Weight in Gold!

In this pod, we talk about the role of a worship director, how they plan, train, roster and interact their way into the worship team, and how having someone fulfilling this role can make your life so, so much better!

When you think about it, someone who is talented, creative, and sings or plays well has a strong creative side to their personality.  This is great, but it usually means that tasks like rostering, connecting, organising songs books, and the like are not high on their priority list.

That’s where creative types can hand over the organisation issues to someone like a worship director, who shoulders the responsibility for those areas, leaving the creative folks to be, well, more creative!

If your worship team is chaotic or stressed, then you need to listen to this podcast, because it may hold the key to developing your worship team long into the future…
