Today we welcome guest blogger Wisdom Moon. He is the founder of AllAboutWorship.com, a resource dedicated to equipping, encouraging, and inspiring worship leaders and teams.
Most of us know the importance of having a worship-team rehearsal during the week to go through the setlist together, go over transitions, etc. But how much time and attention do you allocate for the spiritual development of your worship team?
No matter your official title, we as worship leaders have the responsibility of shepherding and pastoring those involved in the church’s worship ministry.
What if we took the first 15 minutes of rehearsal time to read and discuss a passage from the Bible together? Or read through a devotional and pray for each other?
I have found that when I take the first 15 minutes to connect with my team spiritually, it is far easier to connect with them musically. It builds unity and helps prevent negative attitudes or egos. It also gives the team an opportunity to get to know each other—more than just what instrument each person plays. Even the rehearsal seems to go much smoother!
Do you do any sort of devotion with your worship team? What format do you prefer?
