    Investing In Your Worship Team Volunteers w/ Lee Baker (12 Stone Church)

    Investing in your worship team volunteers is one of your most important tasks as a worship leader. You may not be able to pay your worship volunteers with money, but you can definitely show them you care in many other creative ways. This month I talk with Lee Baker from 12 Stone Church about how we can create "rhythms and layers" of volunteer care for our team members. There are a lot of really great ideas for ways you can show your volunteers how much you appreciate them! Take a few and apply them to your team this month!

    Systems and Routines That Lead to Healthy Ministries w/ Highlands Worship

    Systems and Routines That Lead to Healthy Ministries w/ Highlands Worship

    Systems, processes, routines, and schedules.  Most worship leaders run and cower in fear at the mere mention of such "structured" words. We are creatives. We like our lives to be free and flowing. But the truth is, you can't have a healthy ministry without solid and effective administrative systems and routines. The results you are currently getting in your ministry are directly correlated to actions you repeatedly take.  So what sort of actions do you need to start taking to get better results? 
    Thankfully, today I am talking to Chris and Tyler from Highlands Worship. Church of the Highlands is known as a "systems church", and through intentionally designed systems they've been able to grow to 60,000 people!  In this episode, I talk with Chris and Tyler about the systems they have in place to bring about health in their worship ministry.  Take a listen and be inspired!

Practical and oh-so helpful!

I started as a Director of Worship Ministries in September of 2021 and this podcast has been such a huge help! I have a Bachelor’s degree in instrumental music education, but being the leader of a praise band is so different—even the music terminology has me scratching my head at times (I had to ask what W.L. on sheet music stood for, lol)! This podcast has not only helped me to realize that I’m not alone, but it has also encouraged me to grow spiritually and has helped me to improve my skill. I’m so grateful it exists!

Amazing and extremely helpful podcast!

I stepped as worship leader at my church in October of 2021. Since then I have binged this podcast because I had no idea what do or how to lead a team. There is so much practical and spiritual gold contained in all of these episodes. Plus now I’m taking his video courses. I’ve also been corresponding with Alex through email. He’s a busy guy but takes time out of his schedule to help. Truly a blessing to the kingdom of God.

Great worship Pod

Alex really does approach the different points of worship and condenses it to be more able to understand. I appreciate how he sits and discusses with others related to the topic in order to help strengthen the points. Highly recommend for those in worship or are even considering to join their worship team.
