As mentioned, this is a leadership ministry and others look to our lives and behavior as examples. Everyone on up front and behind the scenes serves an important part in leading worship, and is therefore responsibly accountable for their actions in doing so. (See 1 Corinthians 4:2 “Now it is required that those who have been given a trust must prove faithful” and James 3:1). In addition to the qualifying characteristics previously outlined, consider the following:

Submitting To God

Praise Team Involvement

One thing that honors God within a worship team is submitting the talents He has given you to Him, to the other team members, and to the congregation. As musicians and singers for instance, we are not called to be rock stars, but to humbly submit ourselves. Sometimes this is hard on the ego. While leading worship, how often can we fall into the trap of thinking about how people are looking at us? We might say to ourselves that they’re all thinking, “Man, he’s got a

good voice,” or “She’s really passionate about worship, she must be a really great Christian.”
This is not submitting to God. In these cases, we are seeking to glorify ourselves and others instead of Him. When we do this, it is cheating God, cheating the congregation, and cheating ourselves of true worship.

Another act of submission that honors God is to submit ourselves to the overall sound or mix of the music. A lot of times people may want to play and or sing every song, be loud, and be heard by the congregation. But playing and singing like that can ruin the overall sound of worship.

We must realize that balance is what makes a good sound, and most times, less is more. The simpler we keep the sound, the better. Sometimes the best thing for us to do as musicians and singers during a song is to not play or sing during a certain section. As an individual, you are one part of a group whose goal is to worship God. We all need to find out how we can work together as a team to create the best possible sound for our worship. It is never about one person.

Personal Worship

Our worship needs to be an expression of our hearts as well. If we are not really worshipping God through our music or artistic expression, but just singing the words and playing the notes, it will show through to the congregation. But if we are genuine, and our hearts are really focused on God, it will be evident to the congregation, and it can inspire them in their own worship. We need to make sure we are worshipping God for the pure reason that He deserves it. Spend time with God throughout the week so that He is not a stranger when we come together in our weekly worship gatherings. Make room for worship and meditation in your own time of personal devotion. That way, when we minister to a group of people in a worship setting, our worship will only be an overflow of what we are doing privately.

Leading Worship

A big part about leading worship is creating flow – no matter what your role on the Worship Team (sound, video, lights, camera, and other arts included). This is the process where we illustrate a journey for worshippers to enter into the gates of God’s throne room. It is accomplished by merging all

the elements of a worship gathering into one message and flow with minimal distractions or interruptions. By eliminating distractions and most interruptions, we keep the focus on God and off the other things that might distract us and the congregation.

While wrong notes, loud instruments, and off-key singers can be a distraction in worship, so can the sound reinforcement, lighting and media. We need to make sure that the lighting is set up so that it will reflect and help the mood of the worship atmosphere.

Errors and delays in the media presentation can also be a big distraction. The technical artists (sound, light, media, and camera) have the responsibility to always be alert and ready. It is our goal to give God our best presentation of praise.
