Hey Friends! Summer is upon us, so here are some worship team summer tips to help your ministry grow deeper roots.

Worship Team Summer Tips

  1. Take some risks. This is a great time of year to bring up that new leader or bass player. It’s a great time to invest in some of your middle and high school kids who might have a little extra time on their hands. And speaking of taking some risks by sharing leadership, it’s also a good time to give these “green” leaders some extra slack and let them lead a few Sundays in a row. I’ve found that most people need reps back to back to back in order to settle in and really grow. Often, the first few times a person leads they are overcoming nerves and working on an in-ear mix that is actually helpful.

  2. It’s probably time to go through your storage closets and reorganize. The weekly grind of worship ministry and dozens of volunteers has a way of leaving our storage and staging areas a mess. You might find some things there that you forgot about…things that might need to re-appear for Sunday usage. I’m sure there’s probably more than a few things that need to be thrown directly into the dumpster too. You might have to “Marie Kondo” some things too . . . .if it’s not bringing joy, let it go! Maybe give it away to a church plant or sell it on Craigslist.

  3. Summer is also a great time to call the band and organize a night to go out and see a really inspiring band. Check out the upcoming schedule for the venues close to you and see if there are a couple bands coming through that might be a fun night out for your worship leaders and band volunteers. It would be even cooler if your church was able to buy everyone a ticket. In addition to being a nice way to say thank you, it’s also a really good way of saying to the band, “This is the bar we are shooting for as players and singers”…but without having to ever say those words. Seeing great things always inspires me to practice again, and to learn something new.
