PROPEL Worship Leadership Mentorship and Certification
A guided journey to becoming a confident musician and an effective worship leader.
PREPARE FOR SUCCESS
When you step up to a leadership position you must be willing to accept all aspects of that role. There is no time to point fingers or passing blame to others. God has put you in a unique position of leadership within your church and He will also provide the wisdom, tools, and success you need to grow your church and bring glory to His name. First, you have to accept the challenge and dig deep to find the success that you long for (musically and spiritually).
Intentional and continual training within your church is the number one way to achieve a strong and healthy worship ministry. Success starts at the leadership level. It is important to create and implement a plan for success.
What you can expect to learn
Things we cover in the mentorship include the following:
We begin by exploring and discussing your vision for the future growth and success of your worship ministry. This is the most important place to start. Where there is no vision, the people perish. (Proverbs 29:18) I introduce the God inspired circle and help you learn how to continually get to the next level as you strengthen and reach your goals.
You will learn how to start small and build a band no matter how small or big your ministry team is right now. We also decide what model will work best for your ministry (rotating full bands or rotating members within one main band)
Using the WTK core skill sheet and the skill batching technique, I will show you how to start building teams.
Continual and intentional training is the key to creating success in your worship ministry. It’s not hard to implement but you need the right training materials. This week I will help you get a plan together that will allow you to train more volunteers for your worship and tech ministry.
Your top 50 song list is key to creating success in your bands and for leading your congregation to worship each week. We will start forming your top 50 and I will provide you with the templates to create a successful top 50 list for your ministry.
Every week you have to pick songs to lead your congregation into worship. I will help you with all aspects of selecting set lists that work well and inspire people to follow you into worship each week.
Apps, software, and technology can make your job so much easier. These things can also add a layer of complexity and get in the way. I will show you the best apps and tools that you can implement to save you time, train new team members, and lower the organizational burden.
When you have a system that works well and you plan 2-4 months in advance, your job as the worship leader will become exponentially easier. At least it will feel much easier. You will also accomplish more and be able to focus on leading worship well. I’ll show you how structure your teams in a way that will allow you to batch your planning into a jus a 2 hour block each month. This powerful workflow technique will give free up your time to focus on other important factors of being a successful worship leader.
Writing great service sheets is the key to a smooth and stress-free Sunday morning worship service. I give you my templates and even my shorthand one-sheet service method to help you with all the key memory points. Not only will you feel successful and confident, your musicians and tech team will run smoothly and feel the power of being on a well-organized team.
Everybody is doing it right? This week we will explore some of the tools and setups needed to use click tracks, pads, multi-tracks and increase your production value with simple tools. When your team is ready to take the plunge into the world of tracks, you will be ready!
I want you to experience the amazing feeling of being able to grab a guitar and lead people into worship around a campfire or at a small group meeting. Just knowing 4 of the right chords and a simple strumming pattern will allow you to play hundreds of popular worship songs and will strengthen your ability to lead your team and your church in worship. I’ll show you how to play and introduce you to my simple Play and Sing worship songbooks to help you start leading worship from guitar.
GO TO THE NEXT LEVEL
This foundational leadership training will help you if you are starting with your first church or if you have been working in the ministry for many years. One thing I learned early in my ministry is that things are always changing and I had to continue to grow.
There is no status quo. You are either moving forward or losing ground.
As a leader and pastor over the ministry of worship in your church, it is extremely important that you continue moving forward, often beyond where you are comfortable. The best way to do this is invest in yourself as a leader. As you move forward you will take your whole ministry to a new level.
