Worship and Performance

I’ve had past discussions with folks about quality in corporate worship settings. Some say it is important, some say it’s not. I do agree, we do have to be careful not to focus purely on performance…but allow our performance to be molded around worship.  Therefore, the reason for “good” is for God… He is “Good” right?

Worship: (Hebrews 13:15-17 sums it up best)

  • Worship is the continuous outpouring of all that you are, all that you do and all that you can ever become in light of God.

Performance:

  • The manner or quality of functioning.

Quality:  Leaders, musicians, song selection, Audio/Video teams, production teams,  all have very important roles that lead to the same focus – Eliminating as many distractions in worship experiences to help people fully engage with God – by, being prepared, knowing your part, and being intuitive to where the Spirit leads your worship leader. 

Professionalism attracts Professionalism:   Just like any job, study your trade, know it blindfolded, be good at it. This brings out the best in yourself and others. It’s contagious.

God Honors it:  God honors your hard work for the Church and the Kingdom. Challenge yourself to continually grow within your arena, whether it’s to be a better worship leader, or a better sound tech.

We serve a perfect God. He deserves the best.
