Only God can really motivate someone to praise Him. But if we align our hearts with His and simply join Him in the work of leading people, we will have the pleasure of watching hearts come alive.

When I lead people, I want to lead like Jesus. I want to love like Jesus. It is easy in ministry to get caught up in the details of leading, to spend our energy on the how and neglect the why, but the truth is this: If we are not leading out of compassion and love, then we are leading out of something else.

In Part 1 of this two-part series, we discussed the use of a metronome in rehearsals and performances as well as the need for band members to think like arrangers instead of simply guitarists, drummers, keyboardists, and bass players. In this installment, we will look at the basic roles of each band member.

Unless you are an experienced instrumentalist, the prospect of leading a worship band in a modern worship context can be an intimidating one. This article is intended to demystify the process of leading a band in a modern worship setting.

I have encountered many incredible, genuine and faithful worship leaders over the nearly 20 years I’ve been leading worship. I want to celebrate them and the way God has raised up a generation of Spirit-led worshipers.

How do we navigate the seemingly endless options and choose the right songs for our specific congregation, in each specific moment of the Christian year? In short, how do we discern?

In my experience I have found a different approach to worship renewal to be more substantial, though it takes more time. Simply put, I believe that worship education leads to worship renewal.

Every Sunday morning, after a hymn of praise and praying a Collect together, the churches I serve have a “moment of silence before God.” I conclude the silence with an extemporaneous prayer, usually inviting God to encounter us during our worship service.

Why should we leave our Bibles at home and turn off our apps on Sunday morning? What possible reason could there be to discourage people from reading their own Bibles?

Our experiences in corporate worship sculpt not only our understanding of the Triune God, but also our capacity as image bearers of the Creator. Our prayer is that the Triune God would use this community to bring renewal in your congregation’s worship. We hope you’ll join the fellowship as we pray and share together resources for worship design.
