Connecting with and engaging your congregation… We all have to face this, worship leaders,  no matter how accomplished we think we might be. But it seems that connecting and engaging your congregation is easier said than done, right?

Ways of Engaging Your Congregation

We look out across the audience and see some people engaged, and some looking bored, checking their cell phones and so on.  How do you engage them in worship when they look like they’re not interested?  How do you peak their interest, and somehow cause those who are actually bored with worship to want to engage with you as you lead them?

And perhaps the greater question is, where are you leading them, and how are you leading them?

Now we all know that you will never engage all of the people all of the time.  You have no control over where their hearts are at, what they are thinking if they have had a fight on the way to church or anything else.  We recognise that in any church there are those who long to worship, no matter how bad the worship leading is, there are those who will never worship because their hearts and heads are not in the right spot, and there are also those who want to worship but need something to change in order for you to lead them effectively.

So what is is that you need to change to engage your congregation effectively?

In this podcast, we explore the many and varied ways in which even novice worship leaders can effectively connect with and lead their people. We have a cracking Top 5 with loads of great advice, and we have heart felt sharing from the guys as they open up about their struggles to engage their people.

So this is a must for all worship leaders… grab a cuppa, take a little time and learn how to engage your congregation before you lose their interest altogether.
