repetition in worshipIn today’s worship leader podcast we take a long, hard and slightly crazy look at repetition in worship.  From some of the new stuff which repeats a few words endlessly, to the times when repetition can serve a valid and useful purpose in our worship leading.

So how long is long enough when it comes to repetition in worship leading?  Are we using to to drive home the message, to allow intimacy with the Lord or are we numbing our congregations into a brain dead, semi-comatosed state?  Darin and Erick take up the topic and, as is usual in our worship leader podcast, treats the topic with a mixture of fun, seriousness, challenge and, well, just plain old lunacy

So don’t sit around wondering if excessive repetition in worship is needed, take a few moments to sit, relax and listen to the pod and make your own decision about the power, or not, of repetition in worship.

Let me repeat that… OK, excessive repetition in our worship leading is… You get the picture, i don’t have to repeat myself.  Seriously, just listen and if you don’t get it all, repeat it!  OK, I’ll stop now!

Learning how to lead worship effectively is not an easy task.  You can watch all the DVDs, imitate famous leaders and search the internet yet still not really confidently learn how to lead worship, so where does a young man or woman start in their quest to become a powerful worship leader in their church?

Learn How to Lead Worship by Study

How to Lead WorshipAll the good intentions and humility in the world cannot take the place of some basic training.  Learning how to construct songs, arrange music, go up keys, blend songs and choose wisely are basics that every potential praise and worship leader should learn.  These can give you the raw materials with which to build a successful ministry.

They are not, however, the power and anointing of God!  They are simply the tools needed, the framework if you will, that you can use to allow the Holy Spirit to move powerfully in your congregation.

Some feel that training is not necessary if you really long to serve, but I would disagree.  Your pastor has trained to preach, your keyboard player has learned to play and your local doctor has hopefully trained in his profession.  Don’t gloss over the fact that you have things to learn with a spiritual veneer.  If your pastor has trained in his skills, surely you should do the same in yours if you want to learn how to lead worship properly!

Learn How to Lead Worship by Relationship

The most effective way to learn how to lead worship is to sit with and under a successful worship leader.  Part of this relationship is the transfer of information, much of it not revealed in any other way.  Most successful worship leaders have some tips, techniques or ideas which they don’t reveal, but spending time with them can show you how to lead worship in a similar way to them.

As a successful worship leader for over 20 years in churches around the world, I confess that I do not have time to mentor all the worship leader I am in touch with through our website.

I cannot sit with them, discuss issues with them or show them exactly how to lead worship in their context and their church.  However I can and have written down everything I can think of about how to lead worship, from how to choose songs right through to how you react to adversity.  Teaching can reveal lots of things like how to link songs, blend songs, arrangements, relationships in the team and a host of other areas that I have learned over 20 or so years.

So get some training and establish a relationship with an already successful worship leader if you really want to learn how to lead worship effectively.

All About Jesus

In this worship leader podcast we look at what makes a great worship song, and it is not as straight forward as you might think!  We live in an age where there are thousands of new songs coming out each week, and it is the job of the worship leader to try and figure out what is a great worship song.  Most, unfortunately, are average or below, and a few are good songs.  What we need goes beyond that… we need great songs!

 

What are the Hallmarks of a Great Worship Song?  

 We discussed this in the podcast at length, but in our Top 5 we explore all of the typical hallmarks of a truly great worship song.  Without giving too much away, the real acid test is that the song be simple, easy to learn, profound in its lyrics and the sort of things that you leave church humming to yourself, and then find you are still humming it over lunch, mowing the lawn or standing in line at the bank!  

Great Worship SongWhy Select a Great Worship Song?  

  With so many songs of offer, the pod team explore why you should choose a great worship song, and postulate that we should choose carefully the songs we program.  So why not do a great worship song instead of an average one?  

How Do You Find a Great Worship Song?  

  The pod came to recognize  that finding a truly great worship song from the current crop is not that easy!  So, if you are looking for these types of songs, this worship leader podcast will reveal all about finding, recognizing and selecting a great worship song.  Click on the link and have a listen, and a bit of a laugh too!

If you have ever wondered about how to express your personality in worship then this worship leader podcast is a must.  We all have personalities, well at least most of us do, and these inevitably seems to come out in our worship leading, one way or another.  The right amount of personality is fantastic, creative, expressive and unique.  Too much and we come over conceited and arrogant.  Too little and we are just clones of a Hillsong CD.  How do you mix the right amount, and what is the right amount of personality?  These questions and more will be answered in today’s podcast.

. Now, next week’s worship leader podcast will be a year in review, and it will be the last for the year.  But do not fear, after a week or so break we will be back to challenge, encourage and inspire worship leaders for a whole new and exciting year.  So, don’t miss out, the site is about to change and 2012 is going to be huge, bigger than big, huger than huge, and more spectacular than an explosion in a confetti factory!
