12 Steps to improving your worship service.
Does your worship service need some improvement? The following is an adaptation from Todd Fields.
To admit that one's worship services need improvement is the first step to making needed improvements.
1. Choosing worship songs that are familiar to the audience, appropriate, as well as pieces that are requested by the audience and easy to learn and teach songs.
2. Worship leaders should be in their comfort zones, while new interest should be coached and mentored.
3. There should be a coordination of songs, and teaching for all service. The Pastor should ensure that there is a theme that can quickly be identified and embraced. The audio/visual department should be included.
4. Worship services must connect with the audience both emotionally as well as intellectually.
5. Pastors and other worship leaders should of necessity get together regularly for the planning of weekly services.
6. Praise song time does not have to be everlasting to be eternal.
7. Persons on stage while needing to be gifted, should also possess humility and not without control.
8. Introduce unfamiliar songs in a teaching mode from time to time, especially those that have doctrinal messages.
9. Communication between those who are leading out is essential for a smooth flow, especially with sound engineers.
10. Worship leaders should have times of fellowship and recharging.
11. Study the Bible to ascertain worship principles that are relevant and necessary.
12. The largest room in the world is the room for improvement. Don’t assume what is presently being served is suitable to the taste buds of the audience. Always sample your audience to obtain their thoughts on the worship experience. Embrace especially our young people and their desire to do in the area of music without being judgmental. Coach them with a gentle spirit.
