Rank #1: Choosing Songs

Podcast cover
Read more
Bob Kauflin offers important principles for worship leaders early in their ministry as they choose songs for their church.

Quotes:
"You don’t want your song choices to be dictated by your musical limitations. Understanding there are some songs that are out of reach, you want to work to make those songs within reach."

"Our goal is to remember, proclaim, and celebrate God’s worthiness, works, and Word."

"Our goal is to inform minds with gospel truth, move hearts with gospel implications, and motivate lives worthy of the gospel."

"Our songs should contain biblical proportions. There are verses in the Psalms that talk about our longing or hunger for God, but those wouldn't make up the bulk of songs. So if our songs do that mostly, they’re out of proportion."

"Our songs can err in one of two ways: they can approach God in a way that's too flippant, or they can make it seem like we can’t get near to God at all."

"Our songs should bring biblical clarity. A friend said, 'The gospel brings us out of darkness into light; our songs shouldn’t reverse that process.’”

"Our goal is to equip and encourage people in their battles against sin, suffering, self-sufficiency, and self-deception."

"We’re not aiming simply to move people emotionally. We want to give them shepherding care for their souls through the songs we’re singing. We’re not simply trying to have a good performance, we’re not trying to give people a satisfying emotional experience personally. We’re equipping them for the fight."

"Choose songs so you can have a congregation that actually sings. 1. Sing songs people can sing. 2. Sing songs people actually want to sing—so they love singing. 3. Sing songs people should sing."

"To care for people’s souls specifically, we have to move beyond thinking of songs in simply musical or stylistic terms."

"If the primary way I categorize the songs I lead on Sunday is tempo and key, I’m neglecting the most important way the Spirit works in our hearts, which is the Word of Christ communicated in our lyrics."

"If you hear a song and you love it, but then you read through the lyrics and go, 'That’s really not saying much,' don’t do it.”

"There should be a progression in our songs. Throughout church history, cohesion and progression have been the norm. If you don’t know why your songs go together, don’t expect the Holy Spirit to fill in the gaps—he can, but just don’t assume that."

"When we lead people to sing, we’re putting words, emotions, thoughts, perspectives, and responses in people’s mouths. And it should make sense.”

“If people didn’t have the sermons, how well would they know God through the songs you sing after a year?"

Rank #8: Building a Team

Podcast cover
Read more
Aaron Ivey coaches worship leaders early in their ministry on how to build a healthy, growing culture on their worship team.

Quotes:

"If you can lead and foster an environment where your team is actually worshiping Jesus off of stage, away from the Sunday gathering, and they’re truly worshipers, that’s one of the first steps to having an effective worship team."

"Culture is how human beings interact with each other. If you and I are culture-shapers at our church, how do the human beings on our team interact with each other?"

"Every person on the planet is a culture maker. You’re making culture around you every day, whether you realize it or not."

"At the end of the day, we all want vision. How do you do it? Start by asking the question, 'Where do we want to go?'"

"Crafting vision means telling your people who they are over and over again."

"Look who’s right in front of you, and shepherd them. One of the biggest traps church can fall into is missing the people that are right in front of them, because they’re looking for people outside their circle that are better, more qualified, more dynamic, etc."

"Good culture starts with culture-shapers looking at who’s right in front of them, and shepherding them."

"Our attention span is getting shorter while the role of ministry seems like it keeps getting longer."

"Good leaders listen way more than they speak. There’s no way for you to truly know how to lead your people if you’re not listening to what’s actually going on in their life."

"No amount of good vision will ever supersede good pastoring."

"What is most valuable is always revolving around:
Who are the people I’m called to lead?
What is my calling as a worship pastor right now?
What is the mission of my church in the city that I live in?"

"Everybody on your team already has leaders in their life. They’re volunteering to follow us. What makes it worth them following us? What makes this ministry worth pouring your life into?"

Rank #14: Creating a Liturgy

Podcast cover
Read more
Matt Boswell and Matt Papa answer questions from worship leaders about how to think about and implement—or not implement—liturgical elements in their services.

Quotes:
"I want our gatherings to be marked by great, gospel-filled joy.”

"How do we make sure our gatherings are trinitarian? How do we walk in the balance between God’s transcendence and his immanence? How do we live in the reality of God’s revelation and our response? We're ensuring these various nuances and ideas are resonant within the meeting of God’s people."

“If you’ve been in your new ministry context at an existing church for just a couple of months, go slow.”

“If we’re always introducing new songs to our churches, they’ll never be able to settle in.”

“Songs are meant as communion or as consumption. I want our church to think of songs as, ‘This is part of our communion with Christ together,' not to just consume them and hate them afterward.”

“Go slow and be intentional in building the hymnal of your church. Your pastor should be involved in that work. Don’t go in the work alone.”

“We’re not trying to pick songs just to get through the weekend. We’re picking songs to carry us through our lives. Don’t think just week-to-week. Think, ‘What are we forming people toward?’”

"Look through your list of 30–40 songs, and think through the balance of what you’re saying. We’re people with personality quirks, and we tend to like certain aspects of God and certain styles, but be broad and objective with that.”

“A great exercise for a new church is to index by category the songs you’re singing to see if you’re singing a broad scope.”

“If you’re going to be writing prayers, make sure others’ eyes are on them too. There, in writing prayers that people are going to pray with you, you’re putting words in people’s mouths, so you have to be very careful with that.”

“How do I lead and instruct a congregation that has no category for a confession?”

“Our goal is not that our services should be more liturgical. Our goal is that our services always point more and more clearly to Christ."

“There’s no step we have to take to become acceptable before God. We’re totally accepted through the work of Jesus. I didn’t want us to feel like we had to do these things in order for our worship to be acceptable. That’s the idolatry of liturgy.”
