Leaders must model the behaviors that they expect of their teams. That is true of all leaders – including worship leaders [be they paid staff or volunteers]. If the worship team members are expected to be open to critique, the leader must also have a way to receive personal feedback and review – and everyone must be aware that this review is occurring. A worship leader who is picky about details, but can’t bear to hear that they were off pitch on a song will undercut the effectiveness of the team – the hypocrisy will sabotage the trust of the those serving alongside them. No one’s work performance should be immune from feedback – the first step is to humble ourselves and admit that we’re not perfect. Then listen…truly listen…putting our normal human defensiveness on the back burner. That’s how we get better…

“He has shown you, O mortal, what is good. And what does the LORD require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.” – Micah 6:8 #creativeworshipideas
