website creator Mark Cole on cultivating a healthy worship ministry:
I recently read the 10 commitments that the Hillsong Worship Team use. I thought it was so good I wanted to share a version that I adapted for my team.
Healthy culture isn’t something that you can fabricate, it’s something that you “are”. Team culture isn’t just something to talk about, it’s who we are.
These attitudes and commitments are vital for any worship team! Each has a corresponding question we can all ask of ourselves that will keep the culture of our worship teams healthy and thriving!
1. Commitment to learning.
“How can I do this better?”
When I’m actively looking for opportunities to learn and grow in every situation, constructive criticism doesn’t come as an attack on me as a person but an answer to the question I’ve been asking all along.
2. Commitment to serving.
“How can I help you?”
No matter what we find in our hands to do, whether worship leading, operating a camera, changing microphone batteries, or anything in between, our first question to each other and to our church should be ‘how can I help you?’. I’m here to help you, not the other way around.
