sound guysOuch, this worship leader podcast really hits home, because no matter what you do, or pray, or where you minister, you are going to run into sound guys with, shall we say, a less that stellar attitude towards serving the worship team.  They may have their reasons, and after all worship leaders and musicians can be very hard to get on with also, but quite a few sound guys I meet get grumpy, angry, rude or impatient with the worship leader or team members.

But hey, this worship leader podcast is not about whining about sound guys, it’s about how you can work with them, or if worse comes to worse around them, the make sure your team sounds the best and also keeps unity and peace in the camp. despite how grumpy the sound guy gets.  I mean, it’s a tough job for him (or her) because if all goes well, no one pays any attention to hem, but if anything goes wrong, everyone screams at them.

We talk in this pod about relationships, working together and being patient and loving as we serve the Lord and one another.

If you have sound guys or gals you have to deal with week by week, this is one worship leader podcast not to be missed!

So grab a cup of coffee or tea, or alternatively a sedative (Depending on how prickly your sound guy actually is!) and sit back and enjoy the naked truth of how to deal with prickly sound guys…

repetition in worshipIn today’s worship leader podcast we take a long, hard and slightly crazy look at repetition in worship.  From some of the new stuff which repeats a few words endlessly, to the times when repetition can serve a valid and useful purpose in our worship leading.

So how long is long enough when it comes to repetition in worship leading?  Are we using to to drive home the message, to allow intimacy with the Lord or are we numbing our congregations into a brain dead, semi-comatosed state?  Darin and Erick take up the topic and, as is usual in our worship leader podcast, treats the topic with a mixture of fun, seriousness, challenge and, well, just plain old lunacy

So don’t sit around wondering if excessive repetition in worship is needed, take a few moments to sit, relax and listen to the pod and make your own decision about the power, or not, of repetition in worship.

Let me repeat that… OK, excessive repetition in our worship leading is… You get the picture, i don’t have to repeat myself.  Seriously, just listen and if you don’t get it all, repeat it!  OK, I’ll stop now!

Look, you don’t have to be an international superstar to lead worship!  The Lord is looking for humble servants who can learn, gain confidence and rise to become fantastic, awesome and anointed worship leaders.

voice careIf you sing at all, you need to think about voice care, and this is a pivotal worship leader podcast for you to hear!

All of us get sick at some stage, and with the flu or a cold it is very often our voice which suffers.  Sometimes we try and soldier on, and we can damage our throats in the process, so taking care of our voices is a huge issue in worship leading today!  It’s a fine line between singing forth by faith and actually damaging our voices sometimes beyond repair, so it’s time to think about voice care!

That’s right, voice care is a huge issue for singers, especially if you are singing every single week in church!  If you are sick, how to you minimize the damage you suffer, how do you soldier on despite a sore throat, and if you take a few weeks off, how to you rehabilitate your throat and when is the best time to do it?

All these important questions are addressed in this week’s worship leader podcast, so grab a cup of luke warm water or black tea (notice I didn’t say coffee… you’d better listen to the pod to figure this one out!) and have a listen to the most informative podcast for worship leaders in the world today… the crazy, zany, fun, interesting and sometimes relevant BIG worship leader podcast!

presence of God

So if you learned how to fake the presence of God last week, back up your worship leading with this worship leader podcast, and learn how you can do positive and practical things to help bring the presence of God into a meeting.  of course, God is sovereign and you cannot force His hand, but you can make it open for Him to move in your worship leading!

presence of GodHi and welcome to this week’s worship leader podcast, where we are going to ask the very controversial question, “Do you fake the presence of God?”

We all want His presence to permeate our meetings, and sometimes we want the Spirit to move so much that we think we need o give God a bit of a nudge to get it.  If we are honest, we have all thought about it and some of us have done it.  Does this start God’s Spirit moving?  Are we just kidding ourselves?  And most importantly,

How do we bring the genuine presence of God into our church services?

Are you seeing the Lord move powerfully in your meetings?  I hope you are, and I hope it is the genuine article, but I have seen so many worship services where the band misses the mark and, frankly, tried to fake it.  Like you, I want and earnestly desire the real thing, the genuine presence of God.  But how can you recognize when you are starting to fake it, and how can you see the real thing.  This is part of a 2 part worship leader podcast series, so check it out and make sure you see the real presence of God in your meetings…

why do you lead worshipThis worship leader podcast looks at your motivation for doing what you do… why do you lead worship?

Is it because you love it, because you are called to this ministry, or is it because you were the only one who could sing when they can to hand out ministries in your church?

Who knows, maybe it’s for the glory, the adulation of the congregation, or possibly because when someone else does it it irritates you like crazy.  Hey, whatever your motivation to be involved in worship leading, it is always good to step back and look objectively at why you are doing what you do.  Why do you lead worship, and why do you listen to our pod?  All good questions, and we here in pod-land are mighty glad you do both!

Leading praise and worship is a calling, and many of our faithful listeners know why you lead worship, or at least you think you do, but settle back and have a listen to the guys as they share about the real reason why they lead.  You might even be surprised!  This is definitely a worship leader podcast to not miss, and it is alsi one to make you stop and think about your life and where you are going with it.

It’s all happening right here on the BIG, shiny and incredibly fun and zany worship leader podcast.

praise hymnsWe are dealing with praise hymns in this worship leader podcast, and we will reveal all about how you can use them as part of your church worship.

 

Hymns were once considered old, boring, dull and sounding like a funeral march!  They are often separated from the main worship music of the church, where you have praise and worship music and them the hymns during the main part of the service.  This sees praise hymns as a way to divide, not unite your church.  Our pod team can show you how to use hymns to unite your church, whether it is a conservative or an ultra-modern congregation.

 

So settle back and grab a coffee, turn on the speakers and turn it up loud as we share everything you need to know about praise hymns, but were afraid to ask!
