Every worship leader wants talented team members, but often times when we get them we do not know how to manage them.

What’s the Secret to Managing Talented Team Members?

Do we change things for them, or do we treat them like every other worship team member?  Do we push them to the front, or make them “do their time” in the background?  Are you catering to the pride of Talented Team Members, or are you supposed to keep them humble?

This revealing podcast will help you manage talented team members, and all the other team members as well.  How do you deal with jealousy in the team, because trust me, if you have Talented Team Members someone is going to get a little intimidated and threatened at some time.

We also talk about how you will feel if someone more talented than you comes along.  Can you celebrate the talent, or are you threatened by having someone better than you in your team?

OK, sure, some of the really talented people who come along are prideful as well, but I have found that many of them are quite humble, and some even feel used and abused by pastors and worship leaders. Most in my experience are coming into the team, not to big note themselves, but to serve, and to do their best to shine for the Lord.

So settle back and listen to the guys discuss the very real and pertinent issue of how to best manage team members who are talented.  We will inspire you to honour and elevate those with real talent, how to keep their hearts humble, how to keep your heart humble and how to manage them so that they and the whole team benefit.

We will show you how to love them, how to inspire them and how you can allow those Talented Team Members to positively influence the other members of your worship team…

Forgiving and releasing worship team members back into the team can be a touchy subject, especially when what they have done has caused a great deal of damage or offence.

But this must be our aim, when any of our worship team has fallen for whatever reason.  We are not there to punish, condemn and chastise, we are leading our teams to restore and forgive, but at times this is hard especially when the offence has affected other members of the team deeply.  So how do you balance the damage done with the desire of forgiving and releasing team members?

That’s what this week’s pod is discussing.  And as you will hear, there is not always a stable point of view in all this.  It is something you need to seek the Lord on and look to His leading and guidance when it comes to forgiving and releasing people back into ministry.

When can you accept a repentant worship team member back you are truly fulfilling your role as a leader, but how do you do this in a godly, kind yet firm way is the question.  Darin and Erick discuss this and much more today’s worship leader podcast…

worship leader podcastThis worship leader podcast is on a touchy subject, yet it is something you will face sometime for sure… harsh words!  It might be anger from a team member, it might be criticism from a congregation member or it might be something said harshly by your senior pastor.  Doesn’t matter, they all hurt like crazy and can destroy you, your confidence and your ministry if you don’t deal with them the right way!

 

This Worship Leader Podcast will help you survive!

 

No one likes to be criticized, and no one likes to be spoken to harshly.  But it will happen, so get prepared.  The old saying says, “Sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me,” and it is simply not true.  Words can hurt you far more than sticks and stones, and the scars can last a lifetime!  You cannot stop the harsh words, but what you can do it protect yourself against their venom and make sure that, while they may still hurt, you are not destroyed by them!  Your ministry before the Lord is too precious to have it destroyed by somebody’s words!

So if you have been hurt, recently or in the past, listen to this pod and deal with it God’s way, don’t carry it.  Your life and your ministry are worth too much!

worship leader podcast leadershipThis worship leader podcast talks about how you cope with not being the main worship leader, yet still wanting to bring influence to the worship.  This is going to happen to us all, and sometimes you can feel so powerless when you are just a singer or musician, you can see the way things are going, but you seem totally powerless to change things.

 

 

Many of our listeners are not the main worship leader for their church, and so the pod team wanted to produce a podcast that was extra special, just for them.  In it we share ideas on how you can serve faithfully, yet still bring influence to the worship.  We discuss how you can gently and lovingly make suggestions, without undermining or inciting rebellion in your worship team.  Just because you are not the main leader for the day, or of the entire show in your church, does not mean that you have to simply follow orders and contribute nothing.

Hey, serving the Lord is the main aim of our worship leading, whether we are setting the pace or providing support.  It is all about Him, not about us and our desires, wants or ideas.

 

So for those of you who are in this position, and I bet it’s a whole lot of you, then…

This is a special worship leader podcast, just for you!

 

So kick back, grab a cup of tea or coffee and enjoy a few crazy minutes with the team that always loves and supports you!

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!

OK, we all have to deal with what this Worship Leader Podcast talks about sometime or other!  People!!!!   Aaarrgh!  If you are worship leading, then you will have to deal with all sorts of people who present all sorts of problems, so if you have a team, this worship leader podcast is most definitely compulsory listening!
