Organising your song list might sound like a pretty dull thing to talk about on the 12 minutes for worship leader’s podcast, but organising your song list correctly can be one of the most rewarding things in your ministry.
Organising Your Song List Breathes Life into Your Ministry
OK, I will admit that organising anything can be a real drama, especially for those of us who are “free-flowing musicians and singers,” but even I grow tired of the disorganisation that accompanies much of our worship environment. Put simply, we cannot have a songbook that is 3,500 pages long (not if we want to stay sane!), so we need a strategy that enables us to have a manageable song list.
You cannot have your worship team wading through mountains fo song sheets trying to find the right song in the right key, 2 minutes before you take to the stage at church! Having identifiable songs in easy to access areas is absolutely key for your worship leading, and making sure everyone has a current copy makes life so much easier. Now, I know this stuff is far from glamorous, but this podcast is dealing with the intensely practical issues of song lists, keys, adding new songs and all the little things that can make life a bit sweeter.
So this is 12 minutes on how you can transform your worship team, help them cope with new songs, old songs and everything in between, and make life and ministry a whole lot easier. And if life is more cruisy for your worship team, trust me, it will be better for you in the long run. Part of leadership is management, both of resources and also of people, and this podcast will go a long way towards giving you a great start as you manage your worship team.
