10 THINGS A WORSHIP LEADER DOESN’T WANT TO HEAR RIGHT BEFORE STARTING THE SERVICE

I love leading worship and consider it to be the greatest job I’ve ever had. That why I get nervous when writing about worship woes. But the fact remains that Sunday has always been – and always be – the most unpredictable day of a worship leader’s life.

If you’re a worship leader, add to the list!

  1. “Dude, the lyric program just crashed and we can’t get it back on.”
  2. The welcome mix CD has shuffled onto a song you’re about to do live.
  3. “I added a few announcements after your first song.It won’t take long.”
  4. “One of the projectors just blew a bulb.”
  5. “Holiday weekend. Nobody will be here today.”
  6. “You look tired.”
  7. The sound guy checking a mic level as people are walking in.
  8. “WiFi is down. Can you reset it right quick?
  9. “Do you know where insert name of important staff person here is? We’ve got a little emergency.”
  10. “You sing hymns here, right?”

Your turn.

    How about “I brought my tamborine. The 2nd row is OK, right?” 🙂

    (Don’t worry…none of the Reeves own a tamborine….but this mental image cracked me up.)
