It naturally follows that if you are going to hire someone there is a possibility that you will have to fire them. Now as Christians we are not prohibited from firing people – it is not ungodly – however when you do fire someone you want to ensure that it is done in a way that will bring glory to God and not cause scandals and or divisions. As Christians we should be sensitive to how firing someone will impact an employee, impact the employee’s family and most importantly how it will impact the church!
What about after the recruitment and training? What about after the honeymoon phase when the newness of being in the band as worn off?
Worship Leaders, how can we help our volunteers go the distance and have longevity on our team?
If you, as a worship leader, haven’t had a service derail and begin crashing into towns, destroying everything in its path, you may not have been leading very long. Or perhaps you are perfect. It’s almost certainly one of those two things. For the rest of us, we’ve led services that we feel like were a complete disaster. How exactly do we bounce back from those services?
Every worship set should tell a story, so every worship leader needs to be a storyteller.
