Prepare – Prepare – Prepare!

Preparation is key to the success of every musician. Next to the heart behind worship, preparation truly is the most important piece to a smooth and enjoyable experience while leading worship. It’s also the entire purpose behind starting Worship Online in the first place!

Being prepared adds a whole new level of influence and respect within a team. In addition to showing up early, treating people with respect and professionalism, when a musician shows up knowing all their parts, pedals, hits, melodies… it makes everyone else feel comfortable and confident.

Again, like most of the things we’ll cover in this podcast, it goes back to serving. When you show up prepared, you’re serving your team, leaders, and ultimately giving God your best.

In this episode, we go even deeper in uncovering the heart behind being prepared. Truly, the best experiences in worship are the unexpected. So if we stop preparing after the 3-4 songs that we have to play in the set list, what about the “flow moments”. What about the moments when Holy Spirit starts to move and the band continues to press in… if you’re not prepared for those moments, it can quickly turn into a stress mess, a train wreck, or worse… silence… in a bad way. There is definitely good silence, but abrupt stops due to being unprepared… that’s a very bad silence. Ha!

If we can all prepare on the songs we have to play, the songs in the back catalogue, and new songs that we might roll out in the future… imagine how 2nd nature it will become, and how easy the flow moments will be!

AND OF COURSE, in the spirit of being prepared… we’re giving away the BEST RESOURCE to help you get prepared! A FREE annual subscription to Worship Online!
