Episode 08: Six Crucial Leadership Roles (And Why You Struggle with at Least Two)


In this episode we’re talking about leadership—specifically the six worship leadership roles that your ministry needs.

Now, if you listened to Episode #1, which was the overview of the Healthy Ministry Framework, you’ll remember that there were three big elements of that framework that really were an equation.

Engaged Team Members +
Effective System x
Equipped Leaders =
Healthy Worship Ministry


So this episode is focused on what leadership looks like within the Worship Ministry.

I’m talking to Robin Walters, who’s part of our team here at WorshipTeamCoach.com and WorshipWorkshop.com.

For the first part of the conversation we’re going to dig into her journey from a choir member (with some attitude) to actually leading that entire worship ministry.

And she’s not is not a small church: She’s in a church of about 4000 people. It’s quite a story, and as you listen, you will hear some fantastic leadership principles being discussed.

And then, in the second half of our conversation, but we dig specifically into the six crucial worship leadership roles that every worship ministry needs.

The Worship Workshop Learning Community (Facebook Group)

Don’t know what our Worship Workshop Learning Community is?

Our new Worship Workshop Facebook Group isn’t another place to swap setlists and post pictures of your new stage design. This is about helping you transform your team members through…

  • training…
  • community…
  • encouragement…
  • and challenge.

And, it’s free to join. Each week, there will be new training lessons for you and/or your team members. And each month, there’ll be a limited-time premium class that’s geared to grow your team musically, relationally, or spiritually.

Again, it’s all free.

The Worship Workshop Learning Community Facebook Group will give you a “training space” where you can challenge your team, celebrate their wins, and give them quick, bite-size training to help them grow and mature.

Go here to learn more.
