Some highlights from today’s episode include:

  • The reason we have such a shortage of worship pastors is because the role has changed so much.
  • Your worship ministry can shut down the guest experience and make guests feel like outsiders by only singing original music.
  • When you’re planning a worship service do so through the lens of what a newcomer will experience.
  • Worship ministry can sometimes aim at everything and hit none of it.
  • Excellence in worship is more important than variety.
  • Choir should be more than a worship style—it should be a discipleship strategy.

The four ways you can develop a welcoming worship ministry are:

  1. Avoid “Insider Trading”
  2. Nobody likes Worship Casserole
  3. Tick Tock, the Game is Locked
  4. To Thine Own Self Be true
