I recently read the 10 commitments that the Hillsong Worship Team uses. I thought it was so good I wanted to share a version that I adapted for my worship team. Healthy culture isn’t something that you can fabricate, it’s something that you “are.” Worship team culture isn’t just something to talk about, it’s who we are. It’s the attitude of worship.
The Attitude of Worship Vital for Any Worship Team
Each attitude of worship has a corresponding question we can all ask of ourselves that will keep the culture of our worship teams healthy and thriving!
1. Commitment to learning.
“How can I do this better?”
When I’m actively looking for opportunities to learn and grow in every situation, constructive criticism doesn’t come as an attack on me as a person but an answer to the question I’ve been asking all along.
2. Commitment to serving.
“How can I help you?”
No matter what we find in our hands to do, whether worship leading, operating a camera, changing microphone batteries or anything in between, our first question to each other and to our church should be ‘How can I help you?’ I’m here to help you, not the other way around.
3. Commitment to excellence. (See Also: What is Excellence?)
“Is this my best?”
Excellence isn’t perfection, but it is my best, and my best means always getting better.
4. Commitment to humility.
“How can I demonstrate your value?”
Philippians chapter 2 highlights this so well. Jesus came to serve and lay down His life for us. We need to love and serve each other. It’s a ceaseless mission to place value on the people around me.
5. Commitment to devotion.
“What fruit am I producing?”
Am I exhibiting the fruit of the Spirit (Galatians 5:22) in my life more now than I was last year? If so, I’m devoted to the right thing.
