Some worship leaders don’t consider evaluating their worship services until they receive complaints about something they are or aren’t doing or singing. Consequently, their responses are usually defensive rather than evaluative. A preemptive strike is an action that is intentionally initiated to keep another inevitable action from occurring. To evaluate worship — from the inside — is preventive and proactive in order to deter a more unfavorable action or attack from transpiring.
Evaluation is already occurring in the halls and parking lots. So why wouldn’t we want to preempt those conversations with a process that encourages worship renewal instead of just as a response to worship conflict?
