I titled this post that way just to get you to read this. Of course ‘worship’ is more than music, so my question is really, “How do you rate your Music?”. There are many facets of leading musical worship including, leadership, stage presence, participation, musical quality, technical quality, vision, loyalty, administration, relationships, management skills, band moral, etc.
We got in a conversation today about our own Music ministry with one of our senior staff. I got feedback from this pastor that our music is at a B- right now, and of course we want to be at an A+. We’re always talking about going from good to great, and I am all about that. But what I am not into is just guestamating when we take hard, long looks at ministries and how we can measure them. I like facts, I like honest feedback, I like results.
So I am interested in how some of you “rate” your music ministry. I’ve got some ideas, but I really want some good feedback. It’s easy to look at leadership abilities, moral, participation, stage presence, etc. But since you are personally involved and you are there every weekend, how do you compare your music? I’m lucky because I only lead a couple times a month, so I can get out and listen and watch – but even then, I am jaded because I love these guys and gals that are playing and leading.
