The relational health of your worship team affects everything you try to accomplish together. If something is out of sync, the whole team will suffer. What are the most important things to do to have a healthy worship team? Here a few tips to follow that can help you develop the team that you’ve always wanted:

Pursue God

The first and best thing you can do for your team is to model intentionality with God. All other intentionality stems from this place. If you want your team to build good relationships with each other, it must start with God.

Be real

If you’re not great at building relationships yet, acknowledge that and keep moving forward. Own up to areas you can grow in as a leader. The more real you are with your team, the more you will free them up to be themselves. This will lead them to being more real with each other.

Know your team

It’s perhaps a bit cliche but also true: people don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care. The more you build relationships within your team, the more solid of a team you will have. Remember to respect your team members for who they are, not just for what they can deliver.

Be proactive

Don’t wait for something to go wrong on the team to check in and see how someone is doing. Make it a regular practice to check in with the members of your team to ensure they are doing well. If there is a roadblock in one of your team members life, it will affect the whole team until it is dealt with. Know which issue you can successfully address yourself and when you should call for help from someone with more experience or skills than you.
