At times our own words are not enough to get our thoughts across. In those moments, we can look to The Word to give us the words to express what is on our hearts. The scripture repeated above neatly puts into words why I love to work with worship team leaders.
Biblegateway.com list 50 versions of 1 Chronicles 15 v 22. At their core they all agree on this:
âTo be able to instruct others you too must first have a demonstrable level of skill yourself. â
Worship Leaders, it's time to UPSKILL! Here's why....
What is Upskilling?
ââ "Upskilling is the process of continually improving or learning new skills and teaching new skills to workers."
What that ACTUALLY means is...
"...Upskilling is a powerful way of cranking up your skills and not sucking at your job!"
So why are vocal lessons important? Hopefully I've given you a bit of a clue above. :) â
Taking lessons can give you deeper insight into the vocal abilities of your singers, even if they are good! They will help you show your own solid technique when teaching others. And they will give you the tools you need to help singers who are struggling on your team.
Why 'upskilling' starts with you!
If you value the artistic development of your team then it really starts with you as the Leader.
It can be particularly awkward to watch a worship leader attempt to correct a singer but not really know how to do it themselves. Remember the opening scripture
In fact, there's little point in encouraging the importance of development and growth, if you are not prepared to actively do it yourself!
âDeveloping the gifts of those on your team
sends the message that they are of value and important. â
