The Worship Leader’s Dress Code

Knowing what to wear when you lead worship can be confusing – it depends on your church’s culture and tons of other factors.

Russ Hutto lays out a clear and simple “dress code” for worship leaders to follow:

Worship leaders, we’ve put together the definitive fashion guide for you as we enter into the new year. We know that choosing which upbeat praise song or what key to do your closing response time can take a lot of planning and energy, so we’ve put together an easy-to-follow step by step action plan to help you in choosing your wardrobe for leading worship.

You can also use this guide to help steer your “don’t-tell-me-what-to-wear” or “I’m-expressing-myself-through-clothes” worship team members in the right direction when it comes to presenting themselves in an appropriate fashion before the congregation. Maybe you’ve got some older members who think that pastel plaid pants are the right choice. Or maybe you’ve got some younger members who think skin tight skinny jeans and pointy elf shoes are appropriate. Or maybe you’ve got some folks who think dress casual means a halter top and a cowboy hat.

Russ shares five things that should dictate what the worship team wears onstage. Definitely worth your time to read and share with the team. Click here to check it out.
