Sharing leadership responsibilities is an essential part of leading a worship team. And leadership is not as easy as you might think!
Sharing Leadership Responsibilities is Real Leadership
If we think that we can do it all ourselves, we may be good at singing or playing an instrument, but we are lousy at leadership! One of the big problems we face as worship leaders is that we are often chosen not because we have good or well developed visual skills, but because we have a talent like singing or playing an instrument well. But being able to sing does not mean that we are able to lead our worship team properly!
Sharing leadership responsibilities is an essential part of being a great worship leader. Inspiring your troops to not only be led but become leaders in their own right is absolutely essential if you are to grow anything of note in your ministry.
And raising leaders is one of the greatest thrills in ministry. We should not be threatened by those who might have more ability than we do because when you are the leader, your job is to help them become everything they can possibly be in the Lord. At the end of the day, we are all on the same team, and great leadership knows and recognises this fact, and develops those around them to step up into the breach and help the worship team.
So settle back and listen to the team as they share strategies on how to share leadership responsibilities within your worship team, and set your team up for long-term, sustained and powerful growth long into the future.
And remember, no matter what size your church is, or your worship team is, sharing leadership responsibilities is what can set your leadership apart from anybody else, and open the way for your church to see incredible worship Sunday after Sunday
