Your Team’s Outward Expression Does Matter!
I n a posting titled Why I Ask My Team to Be a Little Disingenuous, I managed to stir up a little bit of controversy amongst worship leaders over whether we should encourage our teams to work on their outward expressions of worship. Many feel this matter is between the team member and God and that anything “contrived” would be disingenuous. While I understand and can identify with that concern, I will continue to argue that the job of worship leaders is to lead people in every way possible to worship our God!
I recently ran across a great article that I immediately shared with my team. I love discovering supporting evidence to back up what I’ve been coaching them on for years!
Perhaps this article could serve the same purpose for you. Or maybe you’ve never talked with your team about their outward expression and this article could serve as a jumping-off point for you to begin the conversation.
Friends, the importance of body language cannot be overstated and–as worship leaders–we can’t afford to neglect it anymore than preachers and speakers can. I hope this article proves a worthwhile resource for you:
Once you’ve read it, are you surprised by the studies findings? Do you agree it has bearing on our role as worship leaders?
