Prepare in Prayer. Pray God’s heart for His people each and every time you help plan services. Practice saying, “Lord this is Your service, so what do You want to happen?” Ask God to move in a special way – to personally touch hearts and heal wounds and bring His lost children home.
Stay attentive to new songs and creative ideas. Worship planners should be constantly on the lookout for songs and other elements that might work for our congregation. Make a habit of writing down ideas when you hear or see them or think of them. Watch YouTube videos, listen to Christian radio, discover new artists and music on Spotify—do whatever you can to bring fresh ideas to planning meetings.
Serve with heart, commitment, and excellence. We want you serving in your gifts and passions; in ministry that is an overflow of love and enjoyable to you. If this ministry is not a fit, if you would like to investigate a new ministry team, or if you need a break from serving for a season, do not hesitate to let us know. This is one reason we are here – to walk through life with you!
Smile and be happy. Keep a positive attitude when helping plan worship experiences. Planning worship services is serious, but it can also be serious fun! After all, you are serving the Risen King and His Church! “For the ministry of this service is not only supplying the needs of the saints but is also overflowing in many thanksgivings to God” (2 Corinthians 9:12 ESV).
