117- Song Selection

Song selection is possibly the most important part of worship leading.  Yet it is overlooked by many worship leaders, who choose songs they personally like rather than songs the people recognise and enjoy.  It can be a near fatal mistake!


Song Selection can make or break you!

You can choose the wrong songs and struggle, even as an experienced worship leader, or you can choose the right songs and see people enter into worship in a way you have never experienced before.  The right songs make touching the hearts of your congregation so much easier.

So in today’s pod, learn how to make the most of your song selection, and impact people’s hearts in a huge way…

291- Your Worship Leading… The Road to Nowhere?

Your worship leading is about leading the people into worship, but does your worship leading actually go anywhere?

So Where Does Your Worship Leading Lead Them?

OK, this is not a trick question it’s a genuine attempt to challenge you on where you are leading your congregation when you are the person directing the worship.  Is worship a series of stop-start songs, unrelated and used as a punctuation between items in the service?  Or are you able to take your people on a genuine and special journey from where they walking into the auditorium right through to the very presence of the Lord?

So where exactly are you leading your congregation when you are worship leading, and just as important, do you know where you are going yourself? How can your worship leading be effective when you have no idea where you are going?  This podcast is an excellent and very challenging look at how you lead people in worship, where you want to go and ultimately, the important question, how do you actually get there?

As the team discusses, your worship leading is not just a matter of choosing a few songs and belting them out.  When you lead worship, you should have a definite place in mind as to where the Lord wants you to lead your congregation.  If you know where it is that the Lord is leading you that service, you can then set about finding the best and most effective way to get there.

So settle back and listen to today’s worship leader podcast, and start asking the relevant question, “Do I know where I am going when it comes to worship leading?” Then, when you have clarity as to where your worship leading is headed, you can set course for taking your precious people right into the throne room of God when they worship.

These important and life-changing questions are answered in this week’s worship leader podcast…
