Things That Hinder Music Ministry In Small Churches

Daryl Hollinger lists three things that tend to hurt worship ministry in smaller churches. The whole list is interesting, but I’ve seen this one first hand:

The Inferiority Complex

Small churches may suffer from looking at the programs of large churches and think they cannot compete with them. They cite these excuses: not enough money, lousy instruments, lack of talented musical leaders, too small for a praise band or a choir, or they can’t offer both a traditional and a contemporary service.

“Small is beautiful” is a great mantra and can be a paradigm shift. Small churches must see possibilities rather than limitations. Leaders need to be creative in using resources.

Don’t ever think that a small church can’t have an excellent music ministry.
