Our Process

We help you grow ENGAGING TEAMS built on EFFECTIVE SYSTEMS and multiplied by EQUIPPED LEADERS

ENGAGED TEAMS

Learn more about what it takes to grow an engaged team that leads life-changing worship.

EFFECTIVE SYSTEMS

Discover why effective systems will give you more time to do what God has gifted you to do.

EQUIPPED LEADERS

Identify what your primary worship leadership role is, and then build a team of leaders around you.

 

Engaged Teams

We help you develop a strong, engaged team that leads life-changing worship. Too often, worship leaders struggle with team members who...

  • Show up unprepared to rehearsals 
  • Lack the confidence to be expressive and connect with the congregation
  • Don't take their commitment to the team seriously
  • Don't truly understand what Biblical worship is.

 As a result, the people in your church don't get to experience gathered worship in an environment that is intentionally focused on helping them connect with God.

What does an Engaged Team Look Like?

We help you develop a strong team who intentionally engage in six specific areas. 

Engaged With God

You can build a “healthy looking” worship ministry by concentrating on these other levels. But your team members need have a growing relationship with Jesus Christ for the rest of it to matter.

Engaged With Leadership

Great leadership is at the core of great teams. Your best team members know how to not only follow their leader, but also "lead up"−offering encouragement and challenge when appropriate.

Engaged With Each Other

Healthy teams are full of people who can engage with one another: speaking truth in love, caring for and encouraging each other. They also recognize and embrace each other's unique gifting and contribution.

Engage With The Congregation

To help encourage people to worship God, your team members need to actively lead. Leading from the platform, your team needs to engage the congregation musically and even visually.

Engage With The Music

Music is one of our primary tools. When your team is leading on Sunday, they need to confidently use this tool effortlessly. A mechanical, clumsy or unfeeling execution of a song is a distraction to worship.

Engage With The Process

As a good leader, you have multiple processes, or systems, for making your ministry run well. Great ministry systems support and enable your team to do its job. For your team to be effective, each team member needs to commit and engage with those systems 

Effective Systems

We help you strengthen your ministry systems, so you have time to do what you're gifted and passionate to do. For most worship leaders, that's NOT spending all their time doing administrative work.

Too often, you can feel like a slave to Sunday with all that the weekend services demand.

Don't get to the point where you feel like your legacy will be a stack of Sunday setlists. We can help you develop systems so you have time to work ON your ministry versus always being stuck working IN it. A great place to start is by scheduling a Blueprint Session.

What Are Your Ministry Systems?

  • Musician/Tech Scheduling
  • Communication
  • Music & Service Planning
  • Chart/Recording Management and Distribution
  • New Musician Qualification
  • Training and Team Development
  • Leadership Development
  • Team Member Evaluations

Systems are simply your (or your ministry's) process to get things done. Once you get effective systems in place, you can focus on doing more of what you love to do—not what you have to do.

Why Do They Matter?

Systems help create behavior. Don't like a certain behavior on your team? Unfortunately, you have a "system" that is producing that.

In any area of your ministry, the system you have right now is perfectly suited to get what you're getting right now

Another important thing to understand about systems: every people problem can be traced to a system problem.

If you have team members coming into rehearsal unprepared, you have at least one dysfunctional system that is producing that behavior.

equipped Leadership

Equipped Leadership is a "multiplier." As you become more equipped, you will

  • Grow and multiply a more engaged team.
  • Develop and implement better systems, multiplying your effectiveness.
  • Multiply yourself as you raise up other leaders. And you're going to NEED those other leaders to build the team beyond YOU.

Effective worship ministry requires multiple leadership roles. And, if we're being real, you're only great at one or two of those roles. No one person can lead every aspect of the worship ministry at a "10".

What Are The Different Worship Leadership Roles?

 

The Congregational Leader

This role is the upfront leader. This is when you're leading the songs, engaging the congregation and modeling worship. 

A great congregational leader isn't just a good singer. They can read the people and listen to the Holy Spirit. As they does this, they are able to encourage and engage the congregation along the journey of worship.

The Musical Director

This is the leader of the band, or instrumental team. 

Many worship leaders default into this position, and compromise their ability to lead. But a gifted musical director has the ability to grasp the whole picture. They know the flow and dynamics of the songs and sets, and the segues in between. Their primary objective is to make it easy for the congregational leader to lead worship.

The Worship Designer

This is the service planner. When you plan out the journey of worship, you are in the leadership role of Worship Designer. 

A gifted worship designer has the ability to create a flow and feel to the service. They have a sense, an intuition even, for how to create meaningful moments of worship in the service and move people along a journey towards God's presence.

  

The Team Shepherd

When you care for and nurture your team members, you are in the leadership role of Team Shepherd.

Gifted team shepherds LOVE being with their team. They are highly relational people and likely have mercy as part of the spiritual gift mix.

Because of the high personal interaction and weekly demands of the worship and music ministry, the Team Shepherd is crucial to guard against burnout and relational issues.

The Administrative Leader

Since Effective Systems is a crucial component of your ministry, you need a leader implementing and improving those systems. That's the Administrative Leader.

One of the most important things you can do is look at every area of your ministry and ask, “Is this system producing what we want it to produce?” If the answer isn't yes, you as the Administrative Leader have work to do.

The Visionary Leader

The Visionary Leader takes your team into the future, dreams and prays about what’s next, casts vision, and drives everyone else bonkers.

Future-oriented people can be maddening sometimes. They need others around them to help keep them grounded in the here and now so the preferred future has a chance of being built.

But your ministry needs the Visionary Leader pushing out of the comfort and safety of the status quo.
