A quick post on guest worship leaders. Having someone come in to lead worship can be a big win for the church in many ways. Variety can break people out of autopilot mode. And – if nothing else – it can give overwhelmed worship teams a much-needed break. However, if the worship set is all [or even primarily] unknown songs, then it’s a concert, not worship, and is probably better suited to a format other than a participatory worship service. The good news is that I have found that most artists will be more than happy to work with you to find a happy win/win.

Work with guest worship leaders to program songs your congregation knows.
