Praise and worship leaders, this is a critical podcast that you need to hear!
The big question is, are you leading your congregation in worship, or are you pushing them or, as many of us do, leaving them behind?
Let me clarify each of these before you even get to today’s podcast…
LEADING worship is about taking your congregation by the hand and leading them into a more wonderful and anointed worship experience. This is what we are called to do, this is our mandate, and this is our aim!
BUT, and here’s the painful bit, many of us do not actually lead our people. Many of us find ourselves PUSHING people into what we thing is worship, and I can tell you that while you can lead a horse to water, you cannot make them drink, and in the same way, you can push and reluctant person to worship, but it won’t be real worship.
As a result, many of us then find ourselves LEAVING our congregation behind. We head off into the sunset worshiping on our merry way, and the people just stand around watching the band worship and checking their cell phones! I have seen this countless times in churches large and small, so please forgive me for being so blunt about it, but I think as praise and worship leaders, we must stop and examine what we are doing, and search for (and pray for) new and powerful ways of leading our congregation into deeper worship experiences.
That’s what this podcast is all about, so settle back, grab a cuppa and enjoy examining what you do and how you can seriously improve your ministry with our podcast team…
