In my experience, bad mic placement has been the number one cause of feedback for headset mics. It’s a huge issue.
There seems to be a misconception that adding “more, more, more” to your worship sound will make you sound more professional (or, if we’re honest, will perhaps sound more “worship-y”).
People who work at churches are often the most chronically overworked. The people that actually need it the most work on their Sabbath.
Burnout is common in the church. Why? Because it is an organization built on service on top of your normal work schedule and people simply give out more than they take in. Just like an airline encourages you to put the oxygen mask on yourself before helping others in a…
The idea of today’s worship leader was born in the 1960s – and it has taken us over half a century to finally figure out what we really need, as the Church, going forward.
There is nothing more frustrating for a worship leader than trying to get the congregation into a mindset of worship only to be interrupted after two songs by a set of awkward announcements.

Every fall thousands of geese fly from Canada to the southern part of the United States to escape the bitter cold of winter. Worship teams could better learn how to work together by observing the V-formation flight of these geese.
