Worship team leading is an important aspect of worship leading because you need to lead and shape your team to create the kind of worship you desire.
Worship Team Leading Creates the Worship You Want
Many people think that worship leading is about singing, but far more important than that is being able to inspire your team to greatness.
Leading your team involves many complex tasks, everything from keeping the peace among sometimes volatile and “precious” singers and musicians. It involves not only keeping things relaxed and not stressed, but it also should inspire them to greatness.
In this podcast we talk about how to not only lead your team but raise them to new heights in their craft. We explore what you can do and say to challenge them to improve in their worship, and we talk about how you can also inspire them to a tremendous loyalty to yourself and the church you serve.
Worship team leading is not only about solving problems or teaching them new songs. True leadership is that which inspires them to follow you, to try new things, to step out in faith and learn and grow in their skills and abilities. True leadership is what is required for your worship team to push on and reach new heights in their service for the Lord!
So settle back and learn worship team leading from two guys who have been doing it for longer than they care to let on! You will learn truths that will serve you well in any form of leadership, both in worship teams, across the church and also in and secular endeavour you pursue. The principles of leadership work as a constant, so learn all you can and seek the Lord on how and when you can apply these principles to your worship team.
Learn how to lead your team well, inspiring them to greatness in worship…
We are all after the “secret sauce”, so what is the secret source of worship leading power?
The Secret Source or Worship Leading Power
Many successful products have some kind of secret attached to them. KFC has their 11 herbs and spices, McDonalds has their Big Mac sauce. Many other products have something secret that they do not talk about, but which makes all the difference.
So today we ask the question, what is the secret something that makes the difference between nice music and mind-blowing worship?
We have all seen it before… some great musicians and singers, pretty good songs, but while it may be a great performance, you cannot sense worship leading power that draws you closer to God. Then again, you might have an average team of musicians and slightly dodgy singers, and suddenly the heavens open and you experience genuine, Holy Spirit inspired worship leading power.
This is not completely random! While I always advocate training hard and being the best singer or musician you can be, sheer ability is not the secret sauce!
Song choices, talent, being nice, even Bible study is not the secret source of worship leading power. No, there is something else, something more elusive perhaps, but tangible enough that many worship leaders discover and apply this sauce and get tasty results every time!
This podcast is a look behind the scenes at what really is the source of worship leading power in your ministry. It takes a frank and compelling look at the various methods we try to make our worship leading better. It also reveals what our team believes is the secret sauce, the thing which gives worship leading its true power and anointing.
So don’t miss this exciting podcast, and make sure that every time you lead you are touching lives and seeing people worship deeply. There is a secret source of worship leading power, and it is yours to explore…
Leading worship for the first time can be daunting, but with a few simple tips and ideas, you can make your very first time a real winner!
Why is Leading Worship for the First Time so Hard?
Whether you are leading worship for the first time, or the hundredth time, there is always an element of pressure that can either bring the worst or the best out in you.
I know, because even after years of leading worship, I still have moments when I am nervous or challenged about a particular song, and this can place undue pressure on my worship leading.
If you are leading worship for the first time, you could really do with some helpful advice, especially if you know others who have led worship for years, all over the world. Well, that is what we are trying to do in this exclusive podcast. Erick and Darin want to reveal some simple yet powerful tips that could make all the difference to you if you find yourself leading worship for the first time.
And even if you are an accomplished worship leader, you can still use these tips and ideas to improve how you are leading your congregation at church.

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!
