As I attempt to creep back in to this blogging hobby, I want to start with something, a little whimsical, that has been on my mind the last several weeks. There are certain phrases every Worship Leader hears almost weekly, if not daily, that makes him or her cringe every time. Today I’ll throw out the list and then attempt to post about each one individually over the next couple weeks.

So I give you, Ten Things Every Worship Leader Hears Way Too Often:

1. “It’s Worship not a concert.”
2. “Why does it have to be so loud/quiet?”
3. “Some people just don’t like to sing/clap/raise hands/etc.”
4. “So what do you do for a living?”
5. “Have you ever considered becoming a real pastor?”
6. “I love watching you worship!”
7. “Can you sing Casting Crowns?”
8. “I just love your worship!”
9. “How hard can it be to lead four songs a week?”
10. “We should sing more Hymns/Contemporary/Modern/Praise/Choruses.”

Worship Leaders, which phrases would you add to this list?

  1. Looks like you covered all the major complaints, er uh, feedback.

  2. Brandon Irby says:

    “How much does the church pay you to only sing four songs each week?”

  3. 1. Is there really a need to hire you full-time?

    2. Why is worship music so repetitive?

    3. Why do you have to audition the band? I just want to worship Jesus and use my talents for him.
