3 Things Your Pastor Needs from You

3 Things Your Pastor Needs from You

If you have been around Worship Leader Insights for awhile you’ve heard me say that the most important relationship inside the church is the relationship between the Pastor and Worship Pastor. (Pick up the FREE REPORT if you want to hear more on that).

There’s good reason for this . . . the pastor and worship pastor have the most influence on the worship service, you are the two most visible leaders in the church, and you both provide leadership to key people in the church.

So the health of the Pastor / Worship Pastor relationship really speaks to the health of the worship service itself.

This relationship is vitally important, but there is a catch… a paradox in fact. You see, it is the most important relationship in the church, but is also the relationship that tends to have the most tension.

What is the goal for your Worship Arts Team this Easter Sunday?

It’s a bit of a trick question, I know, but just go with me on this.

As much as we want to see all of these other things, and they do go hand-in-hand, the ultimate goal this Easter Sunday for your Worship Arts Team and mine is Life Transformation. People’s lives radically transformed by the grace of God.

But how?

He wasn’t ready and here’s how I could tell:

Easter Song Selection Checklist

I’m a big fan of checklists.

Let’s face it . . . I can’t remember it all, so the checklist helps me keep everything from my daily work flow to what I need to prepare for Sunday on track.

Several years ago I developed a checklist specifically for this time of year . . . The Easter Song Selection Check-list!

There are TONS of songs to consider at Easter, and whether your church uses modern worship (like we do at The Journey) or traditional (like the church I grew up in), running your Easter worship music set through this quick 5-Point Checklist will help ensure that the music of your Easter service is powerfully focused.

And as a bonus . . . I’ll post my Easter music set list at the bottom of this post.
