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!

And don’t forget, you can download lots of pods for free either from this site, or you can download for free from itunes, or subscribe to it so you don’t miss any episode ever!  Nearly every week there is a special edition of the pod coming at you, so subscribe and be a part of our worship leader community.

Worship Leading MistakesBefore we recorded our latest worship leader podcast, I was thinking about how often we just repeat the same worship leading mistakes.  what prompted me to think about this was that I had just bitten the inside of my mouth… Ouch.  However, the area became inflamed and swollen, and I went on to bit the exact same spot 7 times in a row!!!!

Super Ouch!!!

 

Sometimes We Repeat the Same Worship Leading Mistakes Too!

 

 

Like me biting my mouth over and over again, it seems we often repeat the same mistakes, even if they result in pain and hardship!  What in the world prompts us to do this?  Do we think that if we do it often enough, maybe we will get a different outcome?  According to Einstein, “The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over expecting a different result.”  If we are doing things in our worship leading that do not seem to be resulting in deeper worship, maybe it is time to stop and have a good look at ourselves, and maybe even pray for wisdom!

 

Why We Often Repeat the Same Worship Leading Mistakes

 

There are several reasons why we repeat our previous mistakes, and no, it does not necessarily mean that we are actually insane.  Here’s a few that spring to mind…

 

1. Tradition

Sometimes we just keep doing the things we always have because that’s what we have always done!  Of that’s what our fathers, or their fathers did.  Some of our frequent worship leading mistakes are due to the inability to bring change.  What worked 50 years ago does not necessarily work today.  Yet the Word of God is unchanging and lives forever, not our man-made traditions.  Now, not all traditions are bad, please do not get me wrong on this, but some of them are at best counterproductive and at worst destructive to modern worship leading.

 

2. It Has Worked Before

We try it once, and things seem to work well.  We then figure that if we do the same thing every time, we force the Lord to show up.  Folks, it simply is not true!  Some of the biggest worship leading mistakes I have ever seen have been based on something that once worked, but has been done to death!

 

This is especially true of open worship, where as much as we want to be free and creative, we cannot help ourselves by arranging bouts of spontaneity in advance!  Be wary of thinking something will work because it did in times past.  If you try it once or twice and things don’t seem anointed, then don’t go back to do more of it hoping things will change!

 

3.  Habit

 

Habits can be good or bad, and sometimes it is really hard to kick a habit.  Sometimes our worship leading mistakes are repeated simply because we are familiar with doing things a certain way, and we lead worship almost on autopilot.

 

4. Panic

 

If things go wrong we often panic, and when we panic we often fall back on things we are familiar with, some of which may be worship leading mistakes.  We can combat this in two ways: react in a more prayerful manner, and avoid the cause of the panic by rehearsing and working harder to get things right.

 

Training Helps Reduce Worship Leading Mistakes

 

The right type of training can help to reduce those persistent worship leading mistakes.  It allows us to become more confident as we lead, and more able to handle any potential problems or difficulties.  The whole idea of worship leader training is that the techniques and tips we teach become automatic, so that if things go wrong you are able to handle the situation in a godly and capable way.

 

So please, don’t keep biting the inside of your mouth over and over again!  It hurts, it ulcerates and it is just plain silly!  Decide now to not be content making the same worship leading mistakes, and ask the Lord what steps you need to take to avoid them in the future.

 

 

 

Worship Leader PodcastThis worship leader podcast explores the age old and time honored church argument… how loud is too loud?  If you have people in your church saying, “Pardon, what was that?  I can’t hear over the music,” hen you are definitely going to want to hear this pod.

Volume of church music can divide and split churches.  The young want it loud, the old want it soft.  Too loud and you cannot hear yourself sing, too soft and all you can hear is yourself singing… and all of these can kill the Spirit of worship in your church, big or small.

 

So what is the right volume, and if it is too loud, how in the world can you turn it down and make your musicians, especially the drummers and electric guitarists, list and obey?

 

All the answers are here in this very special worship leader podcast!

 

So it back, grab a coffee and turn it up loud, but not so loud that everyone around you starts to complain!  This pod can radically change your church worship, and that is worth making a big noise about!
