Song leading and worship leading are not the same things, and it is important that we have a close look at how we are leading and what we are leading.

Song leaders lead people in singing a selection of songs, but worship leading involves far more than just singing a few songs. Song leading might be fun, could even be inspirational, but it falls far short of your calling if you are called to be a worship leader.

Song Leading vs Worship Leading

Worship is so much more than singing a few tunes and feeling good.  You can sing songs at a disco or a football match, and feel pretty good, but that does not make the act of singing into actual worship.  In this podcast, we are going to explore what true worship is, what it looks like, and how you can change the spiritual atmosphere in your church. You can lead the service away from simple song leading into an incredible journey of worship.

After all, people in the church are not just there to sing a song or two. However, some pastors want the songs to punctuate what they consider to be the more important aspects of the service, things like announcements, communion, offering, missionary spot and so on.  If that is all the song is worth, then we are shortchanging our congregations!

Worship is so much more than just song leading.  Listen to this podcast, and be inspired to take your people on an incredible journey from when they walk into the auditorium right to the very heart and throne room of God!  That’s our calling, that’s our anointing, and we should never settle for second best by just song leading!

Learn the important differences, and how you can elevate your ministry into true worship leading in this exciting podcast…
