influences in worship ministryWhat are your influences in worship ministry?

Maybe you are wondering what my influences in worship ministry are?  Who is it that I have modeled myself and my ministry style on?  Is it some old school worship leader, and old hymn writer, or one of the latest worship leaders like Darlene, Israel of Michael W Smith (OK, he’s a bit older, but you know what I mean, right?)

In this worship leader podcast, we will reveal all our secrets, all our influences and what made us adopt the styles of worship we now share with our congregations.

We are the product of various musicians and singers who have impacted our lives, and our musical development over a number of formative years.  This is fact!  And even outside of the church, we have all listened to many secular artists, and they too have had some sort of influence in worship ministry and the development of the style and way we lead people in worship.

Being influenced by another artist is not wrong or bad, it is entirely normal.  The greatest worship leaders in the church today, in fact the greatest musicians and singers in the world today have been influenced in their youth by those who have gone before.

So grab a cup of coffee or tea, sit back and listen to what has influenced our lives and ministries… and I guarantee you, you will be in for a suprise and even a shock with some of this information!!!

Influence is all about training, and I would encourage you to get the right training as soon as you can, to enhance the way you are leading worship in your church.  Our online training is the best value ever, and you can check it all out for just $1.00.

Worship Leader Podcast giving upThis worship leader podcast is for you is you feel like giving up, and you need some inspiration!

 

All of us feel this way from time to time.  It’s normal, but that does not make it any easier.  Perhaps you have been attacked or criticized for your worship leading.  Maybe you are trying your hardest, and still worship doe not seem to be breaking through.  Maybe you are just tired, run down and in need of rest and rejuvenation!  If you are feeling down and on the verge of giving up, this little pod might just save your ministry or even your life!

 

Jesus loves you.  He has called you to serve Him, but sometimes that road seem too long and too hard.  The further you go, each step seems just a little harder.  If this describes you, then sit down, grab a nice cup of coffee or tea, and let this worship leader podcast fill your mind and heart!

Praise And Worship Leader Training

Finding praise and worship leader training is the fast track towards becoming successful in your worship leading ministry.  It saves you making the same mistakes others have made, and can give you a real edge by teaching you something in a few minutes which may takes years to figure out by yourself!

Types of Praise and Worship Leader Training

Praise and Worship Leader TrainingYou can find various types of Praise and Worship Leader Training from a variety of sources, but not all of them are going to be effective for every situation.  Conferences, for example, can inspire and thrill worshippers, but attendees tend to not retain the information for very long after the event.  Books, on the other hand, can be referred to again and again.  So which Praise and Worship Leader Training is right for you, and which offers the best value for your investment?  In this article I will try and rate the various means you can use in your pursuit of great Praise and Worship Leader Training.

Conferences:

While these are inspiration and fun, they tend to be less effective as a means of Praise and Worship Leader Training.  Even if you take notes (and I hope you do!), referring back to these is not something we tend to do a lot of after the event.  So, for inspiration they rate 10/10, but as an actual Praise and Worship Leader Training tool, their rating is mush less effective.

And you should also be aware that when you factor in the cost of the conference, travel and accommodation, you may be looking at thousands of dollars, making its value for your money very poor!

Inspiration: 10, Value for Money: 2, Praise and Worship Leader Training Value: 4

Videos:

Watching some of the world’s great worshippers doing their thing on DVD or video is also inspirational, and you can pick up some great ideas and techniques as well.  The great thing about these is that you can replay them often, again and again, and try to imitate and learn then techniques they employ, and for $20 or $30 they are pretty good value.  For inspiration it is OK but not brilliant, lacking the atmosphere of a live event, but as a training tool is it great.

Inspiration: 7, Value for Money: 7, Praise and Worship Leader Training Value: 7

Instruction Books:

While lacking the inspiring effect of a live event or video, a book can be referred to easily and you can try and reproduce the material for your team.  The trouble is that there are very few if any such books available, especially those that reveal all of the secrets and techniques you want to learn to help you in your Praise and Worship Leader Training.  At between $20 and $100 these are a viable option for most people, but take days or weeks to be delivered.

Inspiration: 2, Value for Money: 2, Praise and Worship Leader Training Value: 4

Online Training:

While lacking some of the pizzazz of a live event, online Praise and Worship Leader Training is the very best way to learn how to become a great worship leader, and this is the way we deliver our exclusive training package.  The material is downloadable instantly, so there is no wait.  It is concise, like an intensive manual, so you have all the information you need at your fingertips instantly.  It is well organized, and covers almost every aspect of leadership from choosing songs to band relationships.  You can easily run off copies for your team, from the sound people and musicians right through to the prayers!

Inspiration: 4, Value for Money: 10, Praise and Worship Leader Training Value: 11 (yes, that’s right, 11/10!!!!)

Lead Worship

Who is a worship leader and what exactly does he or she do that is different?  Many people recognize worship leading as a person standing at the front of a church singing and encouraging others to sing, but as someone who has been leading praise and worship for decades, I believe that our calling is far greater and runs much deeper than mere song leading.

Who is a Worship Leader Called to Be?

Who is a Worship LeaderFor someone who is a worship leader, the first question is who were you called to be?  I believe that the name of the ministry describes what the Lord has called actually us to be… both worshippers and leaders at the same time.

Leading worship may seem like you are conducting a sing-a-long, but is this who a worship leader is really called to be?  We need to be worshippers ourselves, but we also need to be leaders, leading our congregations and our team members with confidence and power.  It is not enough to have a good voice or to play the guitar or piano well.  We are called to be leaders, and we must lead our team with humility and strength as well as wisdom and love!  We must lead our congregations and our band with true and God centred inspiration, not with heavy handed aggression.  Real leaders lead by inspiration, not intimidation, so if we are to truly recognize God’s calling on our lives we have to become the leaders He has called us to be.

Who is a Worship Leader Gifted to Be?

You see, I believe that when the Lord chooses you and gifts you that He also raises within you the ability to become a leader.  Yes, you must follow the Pastor and leadership, but among the team members you need to lead with love and inspiration.

So who is a worship leader?  It is someone who inspires and encourages their team, and leads them by example into a deeper place of worship.  It is someone who seems exalted on stage, but must remain humble and loving at all times.  It is someone who has not only the gift of worshipping, but also the gift of leadership.

It’s Time for the One Who is a Worship Leader to Stand Up and Serve

A worship leader is someone who leads worship in church, but in reality they are a true and inspiring leader of people, both in their team and in their church.  For this reason, someone who is a worship leader must be also a servant, totally available and always humbling doing whatever they can to bless those around them.

Those who lead worship are not stars, they are not heroes. No, we are simply servants with a peculiar gifting.  We need to love, we need to inspire and we need to work hard at our chosen profession, and if we do so faithfully I believe we will have the joy of seeing many people’s lives inspired and blessed, not only by our music by even more by our lives and leadership.

I believe it is now time for the one who is a worship leader to become less of a singer and more of an inspirational servant-leader…

Who Is A Worship Leader!

This worship leader podcast is about your attitude to those who are on your team and better singers or musicians than you.  It is tempting to be jealous, but God has a greater plan than this!  If you have talented people on your team and feel a bit over awed at times, then this is an unmissable podcast which will show you how to handle situations, and make your team into a strong and mighty force for the Lord!

So, if you want to be a worship leader of  a great team, YOU MUST NOT MISS THIS PODCAST!
