Does size matter in worship leading?
Worship Leading has Never Been about Size!
As worship leaders, we say size doesn’t matter, but we secretly think it does, and we all would love to be leading worship in a stadium full of people rather than a home group. Come on, admit it!
Whether your church is huge or small, whether you meet in a home or a stadium, whether your team is 20 people or just you and a guitar, God can still use you and your gifts to lead people into an incredible worship experience.
In fact, some of the best worship experiences I have ever had have been in small churches. When you have fewer people, it is sometimes easier to all be on the same page, loving and seeking the Lord together.
Now I know that big churches, big stages, big speakers and lights, and stuff are cool and attractive, but in God’s economy, they carry very little weight. It is not about the size of your team, or your church, it’s about the size of your heart for Jesus!
Worship leading has always been about the heart, the heart of worship, not the excitement of a big crowd or a large worship team. So does size matter?
The answer to that is probably yes to us, but no to God. We often talk about the audience of one, the Lord Himself, and having led worship at some pretty big and famous venues, I always try to concentrate on the audience of one… my Lord and Saviour!
So take 12 minutes out of your busy day and tune into this week’s 12 minutes for worship leaders podcast, and discover how being in a small church can open up a large blessing as you serve the Lord in your worship leading gift.
