MORE THAN?.?SO WHAT?! Make sure you are ready:
Seeking the Holy Spirit?s leadership!
Submissive to pastor?s leadership and the congregation?s importance.
Worship 24/7 seeking God?s presence and responding to it.
Know the service and be ready to worship.
Place self behind the cross.
Second, during the worship service:
Stay mentally and spiritually alert during the service, knowing what?s next and during the sermon, staying in and a part of the service.
Have a warm rapport with the congregation presenting the service with
enthusiasm, zeal and eye contact.
Begin on time and keep the service flowing.
Third, partnership with the choir and all with worship leadership team:
The worship leadership team includes the accompanist, soloist, choir members,sound personal, Power Point operators, and ushers. Each one must under-stand that others watch to see if they worship! When the soloist sings, the accompanist plays the offertory, no matter what is happening, all must be into the service. No talking, writing notes, and bad facial expressions, for they are witnesses to the presence of God in the service.
Fourth, help the worshippers learn to:
Prepare their hearts before they come by living a life of worship.
Regularly participate in corporate worship.
Have a spirit of reverence when they enter the worship center.
Be sensitive to others in their needs and desires to worship.
Fellowship with each and every person present, at the proper time.
Come humble, sincere, and with a great spirit of expectation.
