Things I've Learned about Leading Worship by Being a Janitor .5

I started this janitor job back in August. It would be obvious to say I’m a lot better at my job today than when I first started.

Leading worship is not like riding a bike. I’ve been leading worship for about seven years in some way and I’m fairly certain I’m “better” today than I was then. I don’t just mean musically though. I have grown in leadership, awareness, confidence, knowledge…and the list goes on. I know I’m not the only one that can attest to this growth after years of leading. Leading worship is unlike any other musical “performance” (there isn’t a better word, don’t freak out over it). I’ve never been to a concert (outside of a worship night) where it was the band’s job to lead the people in singing and to focus and play for someone else. That is what I mean by different. So if you want to become better at leading worship…all the seminars and conferences in the world won’t help you. You just have to do it and from that you will learn the areas that you can improve on.

I’d say 5 of these is enough. So its your turn.
