Leading worship is NOT your primary purpose. Yes, worship is God’s idea. Yes, it is a high calling. Yes, it is important. No, it is not your primary purpose. Your primary purpose is to make disciples.
Worship is not rocket science! We have an unhealthy tendency of over-thinking worship or attempting to come up with fresh ways of worshiping the Lord, but we do not have to invent new ways of doing it. Worship is God’s idea, and He has already given us a fairly exhaustive list of ways that He would like for it to be done.
In the previous chapter, I shared some tips for a great practice, which is what worship team members should be doing on their own time in order to prepare for rehearsal. I hope you found those tips to be helpful. In today’s weekly worship thought, I want to pick up where we left off and talk about how to make the most of your time together, when you bring what you have practiced on your own to the group in rehearsal.
When I think about “Practice” in the context of a worship team, I think about what team members do (or should be doing) on their own time. With that in mind, I want to share some tried and true tips for a great practice on today’s Weekly Worship Thoughts.
Most worship teams I have worked with have not spent a significant amount of time considering the difference between practice and rehearsal. By default, they will fall into focusing on and utilizing one OR the other.
Jesus was the example for us and gave us the secret recipe to an effective and fruitful life of ministry. I call it the prayer closet, and it is the unseen place where the vast majority of our worship should occur.
