Each year, I attend at least one worship conference or training event that I don’t teach at. One of my favorite parts of these events is the Q&A time in breakout sessions. I love picking the brains and getting the perspective of people who have been down the road further than me. Or down a completely different road entirely.
Sometimes the questions are ones they’ve been asked a 100 times and have a ready answer. Other times, a question will cause them to dig through their experiences for an answer they hadn’t yet thought of.
And the beauty of asking those questions is that not only do I get the answer, the whole room gets to share it. And I can tell you as a workshop/seminar teacher, I benefit from the questions, too. They cause me to think outside my own easy answers and familiar paradigms.
Since I love and value questions so much, I want to make space here at WorshipTeamCoach.com to invite questions. But here’s the deal: the last thing I want is to be “the answer guy” or the “worship advice guru.” Bleck.
So I’ll be inviting three things:
1. Your questions.
Submit your questions via email to questions[at]worshipteamcoach.com or on this form.
2. Other coaches and leaders. I’ll be inviting some different worship leaders, coaches and bloggers to not just give answers, but truly create a dialogue around these questions. I believe the collective experience and varied perspective will be worth exponentially more than if I spout answers.
3. Your answers, comments and follow-up questions. We’ll invite you to share your perspective on the questions asked and give answers via the comment section. You’ll also be able to ask follow up questions and give comments on the answers given.
So what will this look like? It will likely be a recorded video chat between me and the other worship leaders. At times, we may do it in written blog format. And we might even look at doing some live online events.
But first, we need your questions. On everything: doctrine, theology, leadership, musicianship, team building, audio/visual. You ask it, we’ll try our best to give some answers, or point you to people who do.
I’m gearing up for the first one in September. So (links) ask away, spread the word, and get in the loop so you won’t miss it.
