So, you’ve been “called” to join the worship team eh?
I want to respectfully assist in equipping you for such a season and to help you determine if you’ve truly been “called”.
Quite frequently our personal desires, inspiration and feelings can slip into a convenient eh hem “mandate from Holy Spirit”. The true test is can you or will you work for it? If you’ve been “called” to just sing and sing alone on the worship team…
Chances are your “worship arts dept head” has an extensive list of inexperienced vocalists who have been “called” to serve as vocalists on the worship team.
-Are you willing to pay an outside source to learn an instrument that has a void or deficit on your team to serve in more than one capacity?
-Are you willing to learn to serve on tech or audio teams also? And I mean slinging mic cables and running, I mean RUNNING errands not just parking it at a sound or light board that need not be fussed with in the first place 😉
-Are you willing to serve behind the scenes while waiting for the opportunity to take the stage for God?
-Have you attended your church as an active member in excess of 6 months?
-Have others deemed you “called” without your prompting?
If you said yes to ALL of these…
Then there is a good chance you are truly “called” to serve on your church worship team…
If you said “NO” to any of the above questions…
You might press in with God a little further. Ask him to expose your motives. If you weren’t truly “called” simply ask his permission to serve in the area that you like instead of playing the “Holy Spirit card” to get where you want to go 🙂
Blessings on your future worship team participation 🙂
