Hey, just want to know when you had your first song lead during worship, what song did you use, and how did it go?

 

Thanks!

About five years ago, and with very little experience..................me and another lady singer (whom I had never met before) were supporting a guy who was a fantastic worship leader. He was in big demand all over the country and this night he had just travelled up from London. Anyway, about half way through, he asked me out of the blue if I would take over as he was literally exhausted and felt as though he would collapse. It was a time of quiet ministry, I had no choice but to get on with it. I literally opened a page and sang 'I lift my eyes up'. I had never done it before, only heard it on CD, but it looked to be a simple song with few chords. That was the start for me.

It was my first worship leader gig.  I had done some singing before, but only for fun (well, outside of children's choir), and only on a few occasions.  So when I'm the worship leader, I generally lead from piano, and let somebody else do the singing.  Well, for whatever reason, my lead vocalist didn't show up.  So I had to do it.  To my surprise, it worked out quite well!  My wife, then girlfriend was surprised.  "You really can sing!" To which I replied "No, I have no idea where that came from!"

 

ha!  Good times!

kewl thnks

 

It was over 20 yrs ago and I don't recall what the specific song was but I watched a local man leading a small congregation with just his guitar and I thought to myself I could do that. So after doing it on a retreat, I launched a new service in my Methodist church and started leading worship and I haven't looked back since!

ha awsome

 

Great song Lorraine! I think my first one may have been in a house group setting playing "When the music fades" AKA "The Heart of Worship" by Matt Redman.

I had thought at first this was a new discussion and I had no idea I had replied to it in 2010.  I have never done 'I lift my eyes up' in years, but still love 'When the music fades' and often sing and play it when on my own at home.  I may be wrong, but have a feeling that there was a discussion about that song.

Wow.  That was almost 40 years ago (February 1976).

 

I have no idea .....

I think Phil has been bumping some old discussions (and starting some controversial new ones) in order to shake some life into the boards :-)

lol - you got me!

We're actually categorizing all of the discussions into new categories to make it easier to find them. Every now and then I come across one that I can't resist replying to!
