Carlos Whittaker, ever the genius at composing provocative worship post titles, blurts out some really good points:
1. Memorize the lyrics.
The confidence monitor has become the worship leaders worst enemy.
People want to see your eyes during a song.
2. Change up your schtick.
If I say “Do You BELIEVE?!!!” more than once in a set, I’m being lazy.
That’s my go to lazy worship leader line.
3. Stop asking if they are happy to be there this morning.
Most of them aren’t.
4. Trim the prayer fat.
I pray Father God, that Father God You show us Father God how amazing you are Father God in our Father God lives.
