Worship set-list guide suggestions

Posted: May 23, 2012 in Worship (music)

A friend of mine  who is a worship leader at the church I go to has an excellent few steps that he uses every time he creates a set list.

“GOD FOCUSSED: Not all about us and how great it is for our lives.

TRUTH FILLED: People remember songs so they need to be rammed with biblical truth- revelation that will lead to worship.

GOSPEL: Want to get the gospel out- there’s always gonna be a non-believer and as Christians we don’t ‘graduate from the Gospel’ it’s just as crucial as it was when we first heard it.

CHRISTIAN: Let’s sing about Jesus, we don’t want to sing songs just about love and niceness that a Muslim etc would be happy singing.

TRINITARIAN: We worship God, through Jesus, by the Spirit so lets get the full trinity into your lyrics.

INTIMACY- We can call him abba father. I guess this balances with God focussed to a certain extent for me (although it doesn’t have to) as God focussed often tends to lean toward transcendence. “

A good balance I think!
