So often it is worship leader vs sound person, and there is almost a war between the two!
Worship Leader vs Sound Person, or Alien vs Predator?
This should not be the case, as we explore in this incredible episode. It should never be a case of worship leader vs sound person, because last I saw Jesus died for both worship leaders and sound people, and we should be on the same side.
But as we all know, when you get into the pressure cooker of a church service, when things are not sounding right and people perhaps have let you down, the pressure rises, the temperature rises, and suddenly instead of working together, you find yourself working against one another!
This pod explores practical and definite ways you can bring about peace, and develop unity between the sound guy and the worship leader. And it should never be a case of worship leader vs sound guy, girl, system or anything else! As worship leaders, we need to see unity so that the Lord bestows a blessing, and disharmony between the stage and the sound desk never ever improves the quality of the worship… NEVER!
Worship is so much more than producing a nice sound, but when the sound is great the people find it a lot easier to worship in the service. That is why we need to be working together as a team, not as two warring factions and not even as an uneasy truce. If we can genuinely honour and respect each other’s gifts and talents, and if we can relate to each other humbly with servant hearts, then we will see our worship leading move to a new level, and we will know that the team, not us as individuals but the team, has made a difference and allowed the Holy Spirit to move.
If you are leading worship anywhere, you really need to listen to this podcast because your sound person is a great ally, but a very scary adversary when it comes to the power and anointing of your worship leading ministry. Check it out now…
Do you want to learn how to WOW your congregation?
Most worship leaders do, you know. And this is not about trying to make ourselves look or feel good, we want to connect our people with the Lord in worship in such a way that they are just blown away.
The last thing any worship leader wants is to just go through the motions every Sunday, week after week.!
How to WOW Your Congregation the Right Way
Learning how to WOW your congregation is not about learning secret tips or techniques. Great ideas and cool techniques can help, but to truly WOW your audience, you need to offer something far deeper than gimmicks or tricks. The ability you have to lead people into the presence of God is going to be dependent on your own relationship with the Lord.
SO this podcast looks at both of these areas… we look at some great techniques that really can inspire and draw people into the presence of God, but we also talk about how to wow your congregation but offering them a genuine chance to connect to and worship the Lord in Spirit and in truth.
So at the start is this New Year, make a commitment to further your skills in worship leading, to deepen your relationship with the Lord and to step out and try something new that really wows your congregation. This is a God-given, God-inspired desire for all worship leaders, not to make yourself the best so everyone loves and worships you, not to sell your latest CD and not to form a fan club within your church. You can desire to wow people because by doing so you can change lives and you can connect your people with the Lord on a deeper level.
And in the end, the best way you can WOW your congregation is to give them an awesome encounter with the living God! So sit back, listen to this week’s podcast and be inspired and blessed as you start the New Year. Let’s make this the greatest year ever in your worship leading ministry!
Does your worship leading reflect your life, or is who the congregation see on stage a different person to the real you?
Does Worship Leading Reflect Your Life
We are worship leaders, and hence we are leaders in the church. But does worship leading reflect your life, or are you faking it on stage, hiding your true walf with the Lord behind your talent, your ability or the music you lead.
This could be a highly challenging podcast, but absolutely worth it because we look at transferring an on fire personal walk with God onto the stage and supercharging your worship leading. Have a listen and get inspired!
