Hey all. Just read a great little article by Dave Hughes (not the comedian). He’s the drummer for the youth worship band at Saddleback. He wrote down his insights into ‘worhip leading’ as seen from someone in the band. I think that the whole article is filled with practical insights and helpful truisms. Some of his best lines are:

‘If God has called us to lead others in worshiping Him through music, we must be focused on the elements of it that honor him.’ (namely lyrics)

Don’t convince yourself a song will work great in your congregation because you can’t stop playing the sweet jam to it.

Get comfortable, be real, and take as much time as you need to greet your family.’

Don’t make the congregation feel like they are left out of something’

“Something like that” usually results in failure’

It’s got some good insights into guitarists and facial hair as well. Go check it out.
