What Are Your Goals?

What are your goals when you prepare to lead worship?  Stop and think about it.  If you are unsure, look at how you prepared and led worship the last week you were on team; those are your goals.

We can talk about preparation all we want, but goals turn talk into reality.

Our goals should not be

  • to learn our part at the mid-week rehearsal
  • to play or sing for the first time that week at the mid-week rehearsal
  • to play or sing for the second time that week on Sunday morning
  • to catch up with friends at the mid-week rehearsal
  • to rehearse some more on Sunday morning
  • to finally “get it right” in the last service
  • to let our minds wander throughout Sunday morning

Our goals should be

  • to learn our part securely and confidently before the mid-week rehearsal
  • to play or sing regularly in the days before the mid-week rehearsal and between the mid-week rehearsal and Sunday morning
  • to use the mid-week rehearsal to make adjustments and put the big musical picture together
  • to begin to worship together at the mid-week rehearsal
  • to end the mid-week rehearsal with a good musical product
  • to reconnect spiritually, musically, and emotionally during the Sunday morning run-through so that we can focus completely on God and the congregation while we are leading worship
