I lead worship at a fairly small church that avg around 50 people on a Sunday. The level of participation varies on a given Sunday from no participation to actively singing. As I look out on the congregation, I have this strong desire to change the culture of our worship. I yearn for a freer more expressive worship that is totally sold out for Jesus.
I realize that I might be venturing into territory that is really up to God (so I’m treading lightly) but here goes….
Have any of you looked at the culture of your worship with the express desire to change it (to become more experiential) and if so, how have you gone about it?I’m interested in practical nuts and bolts ideas on affecting change within a worship culture. If anyone has books, blogs, articles or websites they can direct me to that would be great as well.
