20 Things Pastors and Worship Leaders Should Say to Each Other More Often

pastors and worship leaders

It’s easy for a church staff to fall into “silos,” where each one does their work and steers clear of other staff members. We might even do a good job within that silo, but the church deserves better. Pastors and worship leaders need to communicate, often–and with encouragement.

20 things pastors and worship leaders should say to each other:

  1. I’m glad we’re in this together.

  2. If we don’t get along, our church members won’t get along.

  3. I’m praying for you—sincerely.

  4. Let’s plan the service together.

  5. I’m not threatened when you get the credit.

  6. I need your help.

  7. If we blow it up, someone will have to pick up the pieces.

  8. I’ve got your back.

  9. Let’s go get a cup of coffee.

  10. I value our friendship.

  11. Tell me about what you are reading.

  12. I am interested in what you think.

  13. I’ll take care of that so you can spend time with your family.

  14. I apologize.

  15. Feel free to disagree.

  16. I trust your leadership.

  17. I’m never too busy to meet with you.

  18. Let’s attend that conference together.

  19. If it will threaten our relationship let’s not do it.

  20. I love you, my friend.

“Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor: If either of them falls down, one can help the other up. But pity anyone who falls and has no one to help them up” (Ecclesiastes 4:9-10).
