There is something about worshipping in little churches that mega churches don't have.  The #holyspirit seems to be all around! Love our little church @genesispeople .

Keep praying for our church plants! 🌱 Alan, our Vietnamese church planter, is beginning a Wednesday evening Bible study for Vietnamese in another state and Eddy, our Haitian church planter, hopes to begin a Saturday evening discipleship group with Haitians in another city as well.  Also, we praise God that giving for church planting is up over this time last year!  At the same time, pray with us, since September's giving was lower than needed.

Do you prioritize rest in ministry? Or are you constantly working with no end in sight? Burnout is a very real danger in ministry especially in the 21st century where we are more accessible than ever before. At any moment, you could get a call or text or email from someone needing you to do something. This increased connectivity has pushed ministry boundaries to their limit encroaching on a biblical command - rest. It is now more important than ever to prioritize rest.
—
🔴 Here are 3 understandings that will help you prioritize rest in ministry:
—
1️⃣ No one is going to ask you to rest
—
People only ask you to do things. They will rarely ask you to not do anything. If you want to take a day to rest, you are the only one who is going to set that precedent for yourself. Don't wait for someone to ask you to rest, make a commitment to yourself to make it a priority.
—
You don't have to feel guilty about it either. Take a day off and enjoy it. Put your phone away. Don't check your email. Turn your mind off from ministry and allow yourself to be rejuvenated. It is a biblical command after all...
—
2️⃣ Rest is the key to sustainable ministry
—
If you want to make ministry your life's work, rest has to be a part of your regular routine. You will simply not make it in ministry if rest isn't a priority. You might last 5 years. It might be 10 years. It might be 20 years. But, at some point, not prioritizing rest is going to cause you to burnout.
—
Ministry is a marathon not a sprint. So pace yourself. Slow and steady wins the race. Is the pace you're currently going at sustainable for the next 30 years?
—
3️⃣ If you want to truly rest, you have to be willing to replace yourself
—
Not prioritizing rest is often a pride issue - "If I don't do it no one will." Kill your pride and replace yourself. Train someone up to fulfill your responsibilities so that at some point you can step away and not have to worry about anything. Your ultimate goal in ministry leadership should be to build a team that will outlast you.

In response to Acts 2:42, Thom Rainer, President of LifeWay Christian Resources, writes, “Don’t read too quickly past that word ‘devoted’...The word meaning has much intensity and deliberation. It is like a wild and hungry beast ready to devour its prey. When the early Jerusalem church members devoted themselves to prayer, they were doing a lot more than reading names off a list. They were fervent, intense, and passionate about prayer. They had no doubt that God was listening and responding. A failure to pray was tantamount to a failure to breathe...Prayer was the lifeblood of the early church.”

Join us tonight at 6:30 PM as we pray and passionately pursue God’s presence and power.

You've only got a few minutes between songs on Sundays to speak directly to your church. How are you supposed to use that short amount of time to effectively communicate the meaning of worship? Not to mention the average church-goer only attends church 1 week every month.
—
🔴 Here are 3 keys to communicating the meaning of worship to your church:
—
1️⃣ It happens slowly over time
—
Communicating why and how we worship is something you have to talk about constantly over a long period of time. Over and over and over again. It's not enough to just say it once. There are two reasons this is true.
—
First, not everyone comes to church every week. That means, if you only communicate the meaning of worship once a month, the majority of your church won't have ever heard you say it.
—
Second, people don't always hear or understand something the first time you tell them. It takes repetition for them to latch onto what you're communicating.
—
2️⃣ You can't be the only one who says it - get your pastor involved
—
Communicating slowly over time is a big task when you only have a few minutes to speak on Sundays. That's why it's so important to get other people involved in communicating. You can't do it all by yourself!
—
It starts with getting your pastor involved. It's your pastor's job to communicate vision to the church and help them grow spiritually. Part of that conversation should be about worship.
—
In addition, have conversations with small group leaders and team leaders encouraging them to bring it into their areas of leadership.
—
3️⃣ Explain it to whoever you can
—
Sunday mornings aren't the only time to communicate the meaning behind worship to people in your church. Think about the areas you lead: how can you incorporate teaching about worship in those areas of leadership? A great place to start is just with your worship team. They're the ones leading after all, they should have a firm grasp on what they're doing and why they're doing it.

You should be treating your sound techs like they are a part of the worship team. Part of that means helping new sound techs grow in their craft and training them up.
—
The only question is: how is a worship leader in a small church supposed to help the sound tech when they're always the one on stage playing?
—
🔴 Here are 4 ways you can train a sound tech when you're always the one they're mixing:
—
1️⃣ Record and evaluate
—
Most simply, you can record the main mix from your board and then listen to it at a later time. Find a separate time for you and your sound tech to get together and listen to the mix. Don't just listen on headphones or computer speakers. Take that recording right into your worship space and listen to it through your normal Sunday set up.
—
Alternatively, if you have a digital board, you can multi-track record your band and then come back in at a later point and still have full mixing control to teach your sound tech.
—
2️⃣ Point them to good resources
—
Let them teach themselves. Just focus on pointing your sound person to really good resources. I'd recommend starting with some of @churchfront's podcasts on the topic. There are also tons of great videos on YouTube about live sound.
—
3️⃣ Have someone else train them
—
You don't have to be the one that teaches them. Get someone else to step in and help out. Team up with another church and have their more experienced sound tech come in and show your team the ropes. Or, if you already have someone on the sound team that knows what they're doing, have them show the new sound tech what's up!
—
4️⃣ Have another band play
—
There are ways that you can be creative in not always having to be the person your sound tech mixes. Invite another worship team from your area to come and rehearse in your space. This will give you a chance to sit back with your sound person and train them while still having a full band to mix.

There's no doubt memorizing your music for leading worship takes a lot of work. But in the end, it's completely worth the effort. Maybe as a worship team leader you recognize the benefits but how do you get your team to actually do it? —
It seems like a "big ask." Can you really expect that much from volunteers? Yes! When you don't ask your team to put in very much effort, what you're really communicated is that their role isn't very important - they can just skate by and it's good enough. When you push your team and make a "big ask," you are reinforcing the understanding that their role is important.
—
🔴 Here are 3 ways to get your worship team to give up their music stands:
—
1️⃣ Explain the benefits
—
In order to get buy-in from your team, you have to communicate the importance of leading without music in front of them. For some ideas on the importance, check out my post from last week "3 Benefits of Memorizing Your Music For Worship Leaders." @leadingworshipwell. Don't spring your demands on them all of the sudden out of nowhere - spend time working through why you want to do it in the week leading up to when you ask.
—
2️⃣ Challenge them
—
Now that you've communicated the benefits, challenge your team to take action. Inspire them to lead worship well.
—
Make a team-wide challenge that next week you are going to collectively be able to play 1 song by memory as an entire team. Ease your team into the process and allow them to learn how they can best memorize their music. Start slow by only implementing the "no-stand" policy for one song at rehearsal. Then, over time, slowly ramp up the expectations until your team is leading on Sunday without a stand.
—
3️⃣ Model it
—
Your team isn't going to do this on their own - they need your leadership! You have to be the one that sets the example. Put in the work and show them a living example of the benefits of leading without music in front of you. Your team will only go as far as you are willing to lead them so lead well!

Don’t miss week one of our series on the most well known parables and punchline from Jesus.
What do you find yourself consistently praying for during your pre-service prayer?
—
Most worship teams pray before their service starts. Maybe you are the one praying. What should you be praying for? It can differ from week to week and you don't always need to pray the same thing. Maybe you know a specific story of someone in your church and you want to pray over that. Whatever it is, don't box yourself into the 4 ideas you're about to read but these are a good place to start.
—
🔴 Here are 4 things to include in your pre-service prayer:
—
1️⃣ Surrender
—
Take a moment to fully surrender your leading to God. Whatever he wants to happen can happen. Pray for humility that you could step out of the way and allow him to work through you. Chances are you've put in a lot of work up to this point practicing and planning (with the Holy Spirit's help of course!), now it's time to let God handle the rest. Let him do what only he can do!
—
2️⃣ Holy Spirit
—
In relation to surrender, pray that God's Spirit would work through you. Pray that, when you lead, it wouldn't be in your own strength. Confess your need for God to work through you because apart from him you can't do anything of significance.
—
3️⃣ First timers
—
Lead every Sunday like it's someone's first Sunday. Pray that God would allow you to communicate clearly to people who are at church for the first time. That means explaining why you're doing what you're doing, how to worship, etc. In addition, for people who don't know Jesus, pray that the gospel would be clearly presented through the songs you sing and the words that you speak.
—
4️⃣ The impossible
—
As a leader, you should be praying bold prayers. Pray for something that seems impossible to happen: that someone who is far away from God would experience his presence, that someone in your church who is sick would be healed... God is the God of the Impossible so help your team believe that by praying impossible prayers.

NEW CHORD WEDNESDAY
—
C - x 10 x 0 13 0
—
Chord notes: G, G, C, E
—
This chord is more of a Gsus than a C but it's a great substitute for a C chord when you're playing high on the neck for a light and airy sound.
—
🔴 This chord works well in the key of G along with these chords:
—
G - x 10 x 0 12 0
—
D - 10 x 0 11 10 0
—
Em - 07x080

Have you ever felt the routine of leading worship? You show up for worship rehearsal, come back early on Sunday, pick songs for the next week, and repeat the process all over again. Sunday's here but Sunday's coming. It can seem like a never ending cycle. So how do you break the routine?
—
🔴 Here are 3 ways you can make leading worship more than just a routine:
—
1️⃣ Properly prepare
—
Routine sets in when you have a small view of preparation. It's easy to feel like leading worship is a routine when you only view your responsibility as showing up and playing through a few songs. If you want to break the routine, you've got to expand your understanding of how to prepare to lead worship.
—
You should be preparing to craft a set that flows together and speaks into the lives of your congregation. People's lives are constantly changing which means the specific truth of God's word that you choose to highlight can be different every week. No longer are you just preparing songs to play on Sunday but you are preparing truth to speak over your church and allow them to respond to.
—
2️⃣ Remind yourself of the privilege you have
—
Remind yourself that not everyone gets to do this. God has uniquely called you to lead worship in your church. When you accept that truth, you'll start preparing properly. You'll recognize the privilege you have in leading your church in worship. —
3️⃣ Take a break
—
Sometimes, feeling like leading worship is a routine is a sign of burnout. When you feel like leading worship is a never ending circle, the answer might be to BREAK the routine by taking a BREAK. Plan a Sunday off! It doesn't have to be next week but work with your pastor to find a way to get yourself a Sunday off. That might mean bringing in a guest worship leader. Or it might mean your church worships in a different way for that Sunday. Whatever it is - if this feeling of routine has been going on for a while and there doesn't seem to be any end in sight - take a break.

If you could only use 2 instruments in your worship team, what would they be?
—
This question has been coming in frequently over the past few months: "I've only got two musicians available to play on Sunday this week. They're able to play multiple instruments (acoustic guitar, electric guitar, bass, drums, kazoo, etc.) but I'm not sure which one to tell them to play. Which instruments would you choose to use if you only had two musicians?"
—
🔴 Here are 3 of the top worship team instrumental configurations when you've only got a handful of musicians to work with:
—
1️⃣ Acoustic guitar and keyboard
—
The keyboard has the largest range (7 octaves!) out of any instrument you'd typically use in a worship environment. It can cover those lower frequencies that a bass player would normally play. But, it can also play lead parts in higher octaves. This large range allows it to fill in the space that an acoustic guitar doesn't.
—
Add on top of that the percussive nature of an acoustic guitar, and you've essentially got a full band sound covered in just 2 instruments. Keyboard: bass and lead parts - Acoustic: percussion and rhythm parts.
—
2️⃣ 2 Acoustic Guitars —
The second best instrumental selection is two acoustic guitars. There's something immediately intimate about only using acoustic instruments in a worship environment. It draws people in as it takes them back to memories of sitting around a campfire singing songs. You can use this to your advantage and embrace the intimacy of those moments!
—
When using 2 acoustics, make sure that they aren't both just playing the same chords. Have one guitar play different chord shapes by adding a capo or by playing higher up on the neck. This helps round out the sound and fill up more sonic space.
—
3️⃣ Just use what you have!
—
There is no magic formula for worship instrumentation. You don't have to be like everyone else so just use what you have - use what your instrumentalists are best at!

Karl has also started newsmallchurch.com, a ministry that encourages, connects and equips innovative small church pastors.⠀ . . . . . . . . . . . . ⠀ You can listen to the episode on my website at pastorrustygeorge.com or download it on iTunes or your favorite podcast app.⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #podcast  #leadership  #smallchurch  #pastor  #pastors  #churchleadership
