Relying On Others Makes You Stronger

David Manner explains why relying on others is a sign of strength and not of weakness:

Having enough humility to tap into the creative abilities of others in the planning, preparation and implementation of worship doesn’t diminish our worship leadership influence it actually enhances it. So when humble leaders leverage all available resources it is a sign of leadership strength, not weakness.

The worship leader who leads from the impression that he/she alone has the ability and even right to be the sole proprietor of the worship service often cares more about elevating him/herself than helping the congregation participate in spirit and truth worship.

As a worship leader, I’ve done the lone ranger thing and I’ve done the collaborative planning thing. It’s definitely easier to plan everything yourself, but it’s rarely better.
