259- Self Promotion

Self Promotion… another thing we rarely talk about, but most of us are doing it in some way if we’re honest with ourselves, right?

We don’t like to claim responsibility for this one, but many of us often find ourselves involved in self promotion as a worship leader.

Now before you get all high and mighty about it, recognise that anything you do to further your own ministry is self promotion.  It’s not all evil, but some of it certainly is, and many of us fall back on blowing our own trumpet because no one else is blowing ours for us! We know that it is the Lord who elevates us in His good time (1 Peter 5:5-6), but to be honest some of us,. even if our heart is right, are sorely tempted to do our bit in promoting our ministry, just to help God out a little bit.

I’m guessing it’s all part of the whole performance thing, and as performers (and we are that, even if we are also ministers) we are prone to promote ourselves, even if just a little bit.

In this pod Darin and Erick are painfully honest, and quite revealing, about their own struggles with self promotion, one of the worst thing to affect all up front church servants!  Have a listen and then ask yourself if you are genuinely serving the Lord, or maybe just a little bit self promoting…

And trust me, there are a few lighter spots in this podcast too, because we know we are all to a greater or lesser extent guilty of pushing ourselves and our ministries forward, sometimes at the expense of others.

It’s all happening right here this week on the worship leader podcast.  Oh, and thanks for sticking with us, as I have missed a week or so being away on tour.

Also, at the risk of being self promoting, let me share with you the exciting details of our Worship leader Academy…

We have an excellent worship leader training school that is accessible to you a fraction of the price of going to Bible College.

This is actually a complete 6 month course covering everything you should know to lead a worship team, from selecting the right songs, joining and arranging songs and going up keys, right through to management of the band, dealing with personalities, conflicts, encouragement and just about anything.

For anybody who is leading worship in most any capacity, don’t stumble in the dark! For only $29.77 a month take advantage of the training you need to not just survive, but become the worship leader you’re destined to be.

Increase your worship leading abilities today (perhaps even get your church to sponsor you… best investment they could ever make!).
