Worship 101: Basic Tips for Worship Leaders
By Todd Agnew
1. Get to know God in a deeper way.
Studying your Bible, prayer, everything you can do in your relationship with God will have a greater impact on your worship leading than the things you work on musically. As a worship leader, you are leading people to love God. So, the better you know Him, the easier it is for you to help them.
2. Remember that you cannot force anyone to worship.
I used to try to coerce, to mock, to drag people into the presence of God. But that doesn’t work. In its simplest form, worship is loving God. And you can’t force someone to fall in love. The most you can do is introduce them. So, in leading, we must lift up the person of Jesus and let Him woo His beloved into worship.
