Why We Avoid Learning Worship Leading Techniques
You might think that techniques make you more professional and therefore less anointed for the ministry, but the opposite it true. Learning the right techniques actually allows us to explode into a realm of freedom in the Spirit because we can concentrate on Him as we minister rather than on the basic music and singing disciplines.
It is similar to learning to drive in that, once you have mastered the basics and can do them automatically, you can soon be able to drive the car while talking to a friend, listening to the radio and sometimes texting (illegally) all at once.
So learning worship leading techniques is better for your power, flow and anointing when you are leading worship!
The Top 5 Worship Leading Techniques
Here's a few worship leading techniques you can apply immediately to help your leading.
Avoiding excessive talking: This includes praying, anecdotes and calls for people to do things like stand, kneel or raise hands. You will be more effective if you let God deal with this rather than filling every gap with your own voice (John 3:30)
Choose songs people know: A classic mistake is choosing songs you like and teaching people new songs constantly. Throw in a few songs they don't know and watch people relax and enjoy worship.
Flow songs together: Flowing songs together is one of the best techniques I know, making the worship time a continuum rather than a stop-start affair. This gives people a smooth experience and allows the Lord to move in their hearts.
Go up keys: Raising the key of a song part way through is another one of my favourite techniques. Going up a key makes everyone stretch a little more and can lift a worship meeting very effectively.
Voices Only: Stopping instruments and using vocals alone is another brilliant idea! If done well this can have a huge impact on the entire praise and worship service.
