Eight Things Nobody Told You About Leading Worship

It’s tempting to watch a worship leader up on the platform and think, “Pfft. I could do that.” But leading worship is a high calling, and a challenging one at that. You have to be wired in a certain way to even want to do it, and most people honestly don’t have the combination of skills required.

Worship Team Standards Can Reduce Surprises
