Worship Leaders Must Be into Worship Team Building
Many people think worship leading is just about singing, arranging songs, looking good and telling people to raise their hands. But true leadership goes far beyond this… To excel at what God has called you to do, you need to be able to build your team and to do so in a godly and winsome way.
So we encourage you to look at your worship team. Your role is to lead them into the battle week by week for Jesus in worship, sure. But long term you are called to forge a winning team. You are called to pull singular, often selfish and self-absorbed musicians and singers, and to create a team where everyone works together, pulls together, grows together and becomes a unit that brings glory to God, both now and long into the future.
Team building is a lot harder than you might think. Your team doen’s need a friend, and they don’t just need a figurehead. What your team needs is a leader, a true and godly leader, full of integrity and godly wisdom.
You are not just a song leader, so don’t stoop to just be one. You are a leader, an on-field general or quarterback who leads, sets the course, inspires and cares for their team. You need to learn how to be there when they struggle, to inspire them when they are down and flat, and to let each member of your team reach the full potential they have in Christ Jesus.
If you are not worship team building your influence for Christ will be limited, and you will fall short of what the Lord has for you as a worship leader!
So this podcast is for those worship leaders who want to go beyond just being a song leader. This is for those who want to establish a long term ministry that yields fruit for generations. This is for true worship leaders!
