Building a worship ministry is a marathon

It’s so easy to get discouraged, because it doesn’t seem like you’re going anywhere. When you compare yesterday to today or last weekend to this weekend and don’t see any visual improvements, you can feel like you’re stuck. But building a worship ministry isn’t a sprint. It’s a marathon. Small gains added up to significant change over time.

This video covers:

  1. Why we generally compare over small ranges instead of bigger ranges (and therefore get discouraged)
  2. The “superstars” at the big church down the street didn’t necessarily start at that church a superstar
  3. How to work with team members you inherited from a previous leader that don’t have the skillset
  4. How small decisions can have big negative effects because churches are SO relational
  5. Why focusing on the long game is important in worship ministry

In the video, I mentioned that I have a theory why drummers seem to have a harder time getting used to playing with a click than any other instrument on the stage. Here’s a video I made explaining that theory:
