Appreciated or tolerated?

Ouch, this one will hit home to many of us!  So often when we lead worship we just feel like we are tolerated, not appreciated or even celebrated.  OK, you we may not want everyone falling over themselves to tell us we are awesome, but a little bit of encouragement wouldn’t go astray, right?

Do You Want to be Appreciated or Tolerated?

So which will it be, appreciated or tolerated?  We work hard as worship leaders, we turn up early, train, practice and then give our all on the stage, doing everything we can to usher in the presence of God and prepare people’s hearts for the message.  However, so often we are overlooked and even criticised if he worship is considered sub par!  If you are feeling down and unappreciated, then this is the worship leader podcast you need to listen to.

Pastors have many things on their minds, preaching and so on, and often times church members fail to voice their appreciation. In this pod we talk about appreciation, what to do if you feel unappreciated and at what point you should consider leaving?

I mean, does your own band even appreciate you?  If they do appreciate you, they are with you and behind you in all they do?  If they are just tolerating you, then you will find it harder to move forward and really lead as the Lord wants you to lead.

If I Move Churches Will I Be  Appreciated or Tolerated?

appreciate or toleratedSo some of you will say, I might as well move on to a new church if my current church does not appreciate me, right?  Well maybe the Lord is speaking you you about serving and humility and the like, but then maybe He is telling you to move on.  So how do you know, which one is i and where should you be looking to move if that is what God has for you?  These are discussed in detail on today’s worship leader podcast.

It’s all happening on this week’s worship leader podcast!
