Systems, processes, routines, and schedules.  Most worship leaders run and cower in fear at the mere mention of such "structured" words. We are creatives. We like our lives to be free and flowing. But the truth is, you can't have a healthy ministry without solid and effective administrative systems and routines. The results you are currently getting in your ministry are directly correlated to actions you repeatedly take.  So what sort of actions do you need to start taking to get better results?  Thankfully, today I am talking to Chris and Tyler from Highlands Worship. Church of the Highlands is known as a "systems church", and through intentionally designed systems they've been able to grow to 60,000 people!  In this episode, I talk with Chris and Tyler about the systems they have in place to bring about health in their worship ministry.  Take a listen and be inspired!

Many churches are lacking (and even losing) young people. But you don’t want that to be your church’s story. You are a leader who cares about reaching and engaging the next generation. You desire to see young adults equipped to be passionate prayer warriors and worship leaders. But how do we reach, disciple, and equip young people to be hungry for God? The trick is, to engage them in the mission.   And this is exactly what the Circuit Riders movement is doing. The Circuit Riders are engaging tens of thousands of young adults in meaningful missionary-minded ministry. And you can have similar success at your church. If you want to learn how to develop passionate, prayerful, servant-hearted young adults, check out this month’s episode. And definitely send it on to someone else you think needs to hear it!   Check Out The Brand New Worship Leader Training Courses! Use Promo Code WMTpodcast for 25% off!

Backing tracks have been a blessing to many worship ministries. But tracks can turn into a curse if we implement them without pastoral wisdom and thoughtfulness. What are some of the ways that backing tracks can inadvertently harm our worship ministries? What are some of the benefits tracks provide? How can we strike a healthy balance? This month I’ll tell you all the pros and cons of using backing tracks in worship and guide you regarding whether or not you should be using them at your church.

Worship leaders are called to be worshippers first, leaders second. But sadly many of us have it backward. We perform the duty of being a worship leader, without learning to first be a worshipper.  Honestly, how is your personal devotional life with the Lord? How are your private times of worship? Do you have a hard time communing with God when it’s just you and Him? Are you leading from empty? We need to cultivate rich, private devotional lives in order to thrive in our public calling. “Apart from Jesus we can do nothing, but by abiding in Him we will bear much fruit.”  In this month’s episode, I talk with Craig Denison from First15 about how we can learn to have richer, more vibrant times of personal worship.  Enjoy, and share with someone who needs to hear this!

So many worship leaders are stuck leading worship every single Sunday. They have no one to back them up or fill in for them. This means they never get a break, which leads to exhaustion and burnout. Why do so many worship leaders have such a hard time raising up others to take our place? What should we be looking for in potential new leaders, and how do we help them grow to the level we need them to actually be capable of leading in our services?  Andrew Wooddell has been training young worship leaders for the last fourteen years and has a ton of wisdom for us on how we can find, develop, and deploy new worship leaders into our churches.

Singing is a huge part of what we do as worship leaders. Yet most of us never received any formal training on how to properly use our voice. This leads to a lack of range, power, control, and endurance; none of which are good when leading others in song!  Thankfully all of these problems can be corrected by some simple training.  Charmaine Brown from The Worship Vocalist joins us this month to share how we can strengthen and improve our own voices, and also lead our background singers to sing. better as well!  Definitely send this episode to all the singers on your team!

We were created to create! We reflect our Creator’s image and imagination by creating and being creative. God allows us to influence His story in the world through what we “output” via our creativity.  Art has an impact!  As musicians, singers, songwriters, set designers, and “creatives”, it’s vital that we have a Biblical understanding of art and its role within the world and the Church!  Andrew Peterson (one of the most creative people I have met) joins us to discuss creativity, and how we can be better creatives as we serve the Church and the World through God-honoring art!  BUY “Adorning the Dark” BUY “The Wingfeather Saga” 💻  Check Out The Brand New Worship Leader Training Courses!

Many of our worship sets have become so pre-planned that worship has become an act of simply executing the songs one after another.  How do we move deeper into worship and patiently pursue the Holy Spirit's leading during a set? How do we move past performance to actually pursuing God's presence?  And practically, how do we do that when we only have 20 minutes on a Sunday morning, and we're using backing tracks? Jeremy Riddle is back on the podcast to answer all of these questions and more! This is one of my favorite episodes! Check it out and be encouraged! Let's get back to the heart of worship!

Every week, worship leaders gather in a room filled with people to do something.  What is it?  Why do we gather?  What is corporate worship supposed to look like?  What is it supposed to accomplish?  Biblically speaking, what should we do while gathered? Which elements should we include in our services? In what order?  And what long term outcomes are we trying to accomplish through our times of corporate worship?  In this month’s episode, I talk with Matt Merker about his new book called “Corporate Worship“.   Enjoy and please share with a friend!

What do tabernacles, sacrifices, incense, and priests have to do with worship? Well, EVERYTHING! The worship practices of the Old Testament may seem like strange, confusing, and barbaric ways to worship, but when understood correctly we gain a deeper understanding of what God wants from us as worship leaders. Instead of looking to social media profiles, YouTube videos, and Mega-churches to learn what our ministries should look like, Zach Neese (author and worship pastor) is calling us back to seek God’s vision for worship as found in the Scriptures (both in the Old and New Testament). This is a fascinating, insightful, and powerful conversation, so be ready to have your mind and heart expanded! Check out Zach’s new course and his book (below), and also sign-up for the Worship Leader Mentorship before Dec 31st to get your early-bird discount.

Worship Leader Mentorship (APPLY TODAY) Many churches have volunteer sound techs who haven’t received a lot of professional training. This leaves the audio quality of our church services sounding a bit less than desirable. What can we do as worship leaders to help train our sound techs, not just in the technical side of sound, but also in the artistic side of sound design?  This question came from our Worship Leader Mentorship.  APPLY for our Feb 2021 Session   FOLLOW US!

Your personal health or unhealth will directly affect the health or unhealth of your ministry. That’s why as leaders, it is critical that we strive to be holistically healthy. We should be taking care of ourselves physically, spiritually, emotionally, and mentally so that we can bring the best version of ourselves to those we are called to serve. If you are drained, empty, tired, or unhealthy, you will not be able to serve others effectively. In this episode, I will be giving you four practical ways to improve your overall health. Remember, you can't take care of others if you don't first take care of yourself.  Enjoy, and share with someone you think needs to hear this! WMT 10-WEEK MENTORSHIP (APPLY HERE)   FOLLOW US!

Marriage is hard. Ministry is hard. Put the two together and things can get really tricky! But we all know that if we don’t have healthy marriages, our ministries will be negatively impacted. In fact, many worship leaders have forfeited their ministries because their marriages have failed. How can we balance serving the needs of our church AND the needs of our spouse? Well, thankfully Paul Baloche is here to help. Paul has successfully balanced a thriving worship ministry and happy, healthy marriage for over 33 years. Paul has some major insights for us!
