A worship leader’s journey part two

After the birth of Liam life got rather hectic.  I wasn’t sleeping hardly at all.  I was emotionally and physically drained.  I didn’t know what to do.  It was effecting my ability to lead worship.  I spoke with Ted and I took a little time off and after that break we got back together and put together a training plan as I really had no clue how to lead a team, or recruit or anything really.  As part of this training I was going to lead at our main site once a month.  I hadn’t lead there in over 2 years and I knew a lot had changed.  He also wanted me to record my worship sets so he could provide feedback.  This was greatly welcomed.  I haven’t had feedback from a worship leader…well ever.  I didn’t know what I was doing wrong so how could I get better.

So we set out and started this program.  I recorded my worship set that weekend and received my feedback.  Not as bad as I thought it was going to be and very constructive.  A few weeks later I was set to co-lead my first time in Syracuse.  I wasn’t sure what to expect.  I spent the week memorizing music and listening to the songs over and over again.  I arrived at 2:00 for rehearsal and was completely stunned on how quickly everything went.  We usually spend the first two songs adjusting monitors.  This was one right after the other with no break in between.  It threw me for a loop.  So much so that I completely forgot what my second song was…no chords no lyrics I had nothing in my head.  I ended up needing my music sheets which I had spent all week memorizing.  I felt a little defeated but service went well so I couldn’t really complain.

Stay tuned for part three!
