Many times we spend all of our time focusing on the responsibility of leadership without embracing the opportunity it brings. In a worship context, we rightly must make sure that we are good stewards of the calling on our lives. Are we living a life that honors God? Are we fully prepared for our weekend experiences? Are we confidently speaking truth from stage? These are the fundamentals. The basics.
However, if you don’t have a vision for your calling or the platform God has given you, you will likely end up coasting through your ministry without taking bold steps of faith and walking in the power of the Holy Spirit. How has God uniquely gifted you or your team? Lean into those gifts and pioneer new innovations. Do you have a heart for students? Then lead a student small group knowing that the platform you have on stage gives you a unique ability to speak into their lives. Take your spiritual calling seriously and spend concentrated time in prayer for your pastor and for spiritual breakthroughs to happen in your worship experiences.
Leadership is more than just meeting all the requirements in a job description. God is looking for people who aren’t satisfied with “good enough.” He desires hearts that long to be used by Him. I want to be that man. I pray you do too.
