How did you prepare worship? Edit

  • Communication
    • With God: pray and meditate, listen to what God says, have a holy life style
    • With speaker/bible study leader: discussion topic, related bible verses, theme
    • With congregation: consider their background, taste of music, age, previous experience
  • Song picking and flow
    • Lyrics influence thoughts and direction during worship.
      • ​​Choose lyrics that are biblical and correct.Read and examine the lyrics carefully before you choose to lead the whole congregation to sing it. Sometimes hymns have more meaningful lyrics than contemporary music.
    • ​Temple order
      • ​Outer court: when people first come in, they might be still thinking about worldly issues. So start from simple songs first (eg. Come Now is the Time to Worship, 讓讚美飛揚) instead of more thought-provoking song (eg. Change my Heart O God)
      • Inner court: having faith through what God has done. Praise God (eg. about God's attribute)
      • Holy place: talking to God. Worship God
    • ​Music influences feeling / emotion.
      • ​Make sure the keys are not too low / high
      • Tempo: upbeat simple song ---> slow thoughtful song
      • Flow: welcome --> bible verse --> prayer --> worship --> declaration to God
      • Starting a song --> repeating --> ending --> the atmosphere at the end of worship
  • Other things
    • Worship -- fill with Spirit, psalms, hymns, spiritual songs (Eph 5:18-19): We are 祭司般的帶領者, 專注投入的敬拜者, 恩賜合一的調和者, 完全的學習者
    • Prepare the heart of worship - always pray before worship starts with worship team member or with everyone: we are not merely singing, but we are worshipping God through singing
    • Familiarize yourself with the lyrics and deeply reflect what they mean and how are they relevant
    • Practice singing on daily basis: for example I sing the songs I am leading when I am walking on campus or in a shower.

Who did you need to collaborate with? Edit

  • Bible study coordinator to know the Bible study topics before picking songs
  • GM to know whether to bring mics, projector, laptop etc (i.e. equipments)
  • Need to collaborate with the worship leaders/instrumentalist to make sure everything is ok

Anything else you would like to say! Edit

  • I served because I was asked to, because I am good at it, because I have the desire to serve, because I enjoy worship!
  • Being a good leader you can feel the Holy Spirit telling you where to go as you lead, which is an awesome experience
  • You must make sure that the worship leader of the week is ready, and you may/should check with them the night before.
  • Really this is as much or little that you feel led to make of it. The most important thing is that everyone is really worshiping. Sometimes this will mean that reading bible verses, a short sharing about worship, musical pauses to think prayers between songs will be helpful.
