Episode 13 • Be That Person Who Says Yes

In Episode 13, we unlock the full potential of a worship leader - Being a person that always says "YES". Being a person that gains influence and grows in leadership, typically carry a few patterns that you can recognize pretty quickly. A few that stand out are: a good attitude, someone who's constantly excited about the vision and instruction, and someone who always says "yes". Anytime you go to an improv show, it's taught that any idea that's thrown out is always "Yes, And" - Shalon...


Episode 12 • Who's In Charge On Your Team

It's important to know who's making the calls and who the leader is inside of a church setting. Organization and leadership is paramount to a healthy church.

Episode 10 • Avoiding Train Wrecks

In Episode 10, we talk about the importance of avoiding train wrecks in a worship set. It all starts with good communication. When the band is clear on where you're headed, there's a good chance you'll avoid any mishaps or train wrecks. When the band is clueless and people are communicating different things... that's where the breakdown occurs. It's really difficult to not be distracted by a train wreck. This episode goes hand in hand with being prepared. But it's so much more than that....

Episode 7 • Humility, An Honest Conversation

Now... how do you have an open and honest conversation about humility with a couple of musicians on a podcast? --- we have not idea.

Episode 5 • The Secret Weapon To Success As A Musician

Prepare - Prepare - Prepare! Preparation is key to the success of every musician. Next to the heart behind worship, preparation truly is the most important piece to a smooth and enjoyable experience while leading worship.

In addition to showing up early, treating people with respect and professionalism, when a musician shows up...


Episode 4 • Be Professional, Not Annoying

We can probably all recall a musician along the way who would show up to band practice, get their gear setup, then start playing immediately while everyone was still setting up. Or the guy (or girl) who shows up without their capo, in-ears, picks, or sticks… maybe the vocalist who decided to come in after their outside job without the chance to shower first or at least wear deodorant… The list goes on…. But, like we mentioned in Episode 2 - Our team members, our family, others… are more...


Episode 3 • The Importance Of Showing Up Early

Simply put, this is a no-brainer. If you want an easy way to influence your team and show them that you care about THEM… may we introduce the most affective sub-conscience way to do so - showing up early. Brenton’s pastor growing up used to always say “if you’re on time, you’re late.” - This is something a lot of people disregard and don’t think much about. But how many times have you noticed, when you walk into a meeting and the person you’re meeting with is already there, how it feels...


Episode 2 • Why We Play Worship Music & The Heart Behind It

In this episode, we talk about the heart behind worship. The "Seek First" principle is something we should all have as a number one priority in our lives as Christians… especially as worship leaders. Matthew 6:33 says “seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness and all these things will be added unto you.” The entire point of leading worship is to help other people connect with this truth. When we seek God first, He becomes the foundation of our lives and everything else is a...
