Serving on a worship team is a great opportunity to honor God and help other people pursue God. Here's how to determine whether or not you are ready to be on the stage.

Key Points:

  • Even though you may think that musicianship is the main factor for being on stage, your attitude is actually the first and most important thing that you need to evaluate before you join a team (Philippians 2:3).
  • While your attitude is the most important thing in worship, your technical skills are also vitally important.
  • If you are not ready to join a team at this point, that’s okay. Keep working on your areas of growth and continue to move forward.

Bible Text:

Philippians 2:3 Don’t be selfish; don’t try to impress others. Be humble, thinking of others as better than yourselves.
