Small Church/Big Worship is a 1-day seminar that’s designed from
top to bottom for smaller congregations.
This half-day seminar is about you and and your team - that is, if you're a church of 200 or less. Bring your key leaders, instrumentalists, vocalists and even your senior pastor to get a glimpse of how to do create engaging worship services in a smaller church. You'll learn:
- Why authentic Biblical worship doesn't require 500 people
- How to create flow in worship and eliminate distracting transitions between worship elements
- How to grow your team, invite, qualify and develop new musicians
- How to leverage your size for awesome engagement
- To create more with less when it comes to your band, vocalists and AV technology
"I've been on staff in three churches under 120. And as a worship leader in those churches, I would occasionally attend conferences with big names and big productions all geared towards big churches with big bands and even bigger budgets. Those were fun events and personally refreshing, but I also left frustrated knowing that 90% of what I experienced was out of my reach."
~Jon Nicol, Worship Leader and Instructor for Small Church Big Worship
So Small Church/Big Worship comes out of that working in and with smaller churches. It starts with two premises:
First, churches of less than 200 are NOT (and should not try to be) miniature versions of larger churches. A church of 95 people has a different quality than a church of 500. It’s still the local body of Christ with a mission to make disciples and bring glory to God, but how it does that is different.
Second, every church has what they need RIGHT NOW. God has given our churches the people and resources we need at this moment. Small Church/Big Worship will help pastors and volunteers recognize how they can do more with less, all while preparing for God to give them more people and resources in the future.

Attention Worship Leaders of small churches. Being a worship leader in a small church , I attended a seminar [Small Church/Big Worship] with our Pastor and worship team, and I want to invite you to check out Worship Team Coach. Jon Nicol has created an amazing site here and you need to check it out! You will be blessed!

I wanted to let you know how much I appreciated your workshop today. Although I have a background in small churches, I’m now a worship leader at medium-large size church. When I arrived and realized that the workshop was for smaller churches, I wondered for just a minute if I should just leave. Then I remembered that the Lord knew I would be there and opened my heart and mind to learning whatever He had me there for. Although your workshop is called Small Church/Big Worship, it has something there for every church size. I’ve been a church musician since I was 14...and yet there was still plenty for me to take away from your workshop. ...I would strongly urge any worship leader, tech team, worship team, or pastor to attend your workshops.
