Goliath: he comes in different forms for different people, but We all have Goliaths to face, those big tests, sins or people who come against us in our ministry. The pod team discuss and reveal their Goliaths, the ones they face every week as they serve, and show you how you can be an overcomer and a victor in your worship leading ministry…
Your Goliath needs dealing with!
So don’t sit around feeling defeated by these big monsters, because if you let him this big ugly dude will certainly try and destroy you. Take the time and the opportunity to search your heart as to the biggest Goliaths you face, and ask the Lord for real clarity on how you can deal with them. Once you achieve a victory over one, the others don’t seem as big and nasty. Remember, you must not fight them alone but rather let the Holy Spirit within you fight each Goliath as they raise their ugly heads!
So worship leaders, don’t put up with an ugly
Goliath staring you down every time you step onto the stage. You’re worth more than that! Discover who or what it is, and start taking the steps to victory, not only on the stage but in every area of your life, your family, your work and or course church.
Remember, this big old giant is not out there to bless you or your ministry, and he’s not keen on giving you a big kiss! Make no mistake, this giant want you dead and buried, and your ministry shot down in flames!
So it is time to settle back, throw off your armour, pick up five smooth stones and discover how you can take the biggest issues and problems you face in your worship leading out with just one swing of he old sling.
Tell Goliath his number is up, and the Lord is taking over!
Hey singers, do you know how to get the best from your voice? If you don’t, or even if you think you are singing well but want to know more, this is the podcast for you!
Learning how to get the best from your boys can be a life changing experience for most singers. It’s not just about voice care, although this is incredibly important, it’s also about how to expand your range and use of the voice given you to the best of your ability and to the maximum potential that you have.
Get the Best from Your Voice Every Time You Lead Worship
Singing is frequently overlooked when it comes to worship leading, but obviously leading worship requires a certain amount of singing to be done. Many worship leaders struggle to hold their voice together over a long period of time, especially when they have been practising hard, singing high notes or coming off a sore throat or the flu.
So in this podcast, Eric and Darin will take you through the steps that you need to not only keep your voice in tiptop condition, but to help you to get the best from your voice under a variety of circumstances.
But they want to go even beyond that! In addition to getting the best from your voice, they want to expand the range that you have so that you are able to sing higher, lower, louder and longer than ever before. They talk about how your voice can be moulded over a period of time to stretch its range and to make it a powerful tool for the Lord when it comes to leading his people in worship.
So settle back, grab a cup of coffee… Oh no, coffee is not good for your throat… Maybe grab a glass of lukewarm water or black tea, and settle back and listen to today’s podcast which will help you to get the best from your voice every time you Minister for the Lord in worship leading.
Learning how to bring the presence of God to a meeting is a skill many worship leaders have not really explored.

A worship leader nightmare is when you are doing your best, and you see no response. OK, in some denominations this might be the norm, but even in conservative groups there are still signs of life that ought to be there, right?

You are up there singing, playing, worshiping and feeling like you are really tapping into the presence of the Lord, and you look across the auditorium and see… absolutely nothing.

You should lead worship with a gratitude attitude, but people being people, we often are not as grateful as we ought to be.

Acoustic worship is one of the most popular styles of worship leading, and the great things is that, even for a small church, acoustic worship leading, even with just a solo guitar, can work sensationally.
Many churches feel that, to be contemporary, they need to have a huge band and singers, drums, bass, keyboards, screaming lead guitars, the whole deal.
But there is increasingly a place for simple, acoustic based worship leading, with maybe a couple of guitars, a little beat box and perhaps a simple keyboard. People love it. Worship teams love it and vocals can become a major feature.
In fact Acoustic music is popular even outside of the church!
At a recent concert I attended, a rock concert by a famous secular artist, some of the most memorable songs were done not with rock music and the whole band, but by the artist out the front playing a solo acoustic guitar!
And Acoustic Worship is Cool!
It’s light to the ear, loved by most worshipers and has many other incredible advantages over the full worship team, as this pod explores…

Going up Keys in worship leading can be one of the most exciting experiences a worship leader can have in their Ministry.
When you go up Keys in worship, you will notice that all of the congregation members will be straining a little bit harder to hit the notes, and usually will sing louder and with more commitment. However, the value of going up Keys in worship does not stop there.
The Magic of Going Up Keys in Worship Leading!
There is something spiritually amazing that happens when we go up a key. I can’t really explain it as a worship leader, but I know when I take songs that people know and go up Keys in worship, not only do people sing louder but also the spiritual atmosphere is raised accordingly.
