5 Things to Say in Between Songs as a Worship Leader
07:38

Have you ever struggled with what to say in between songs as a worship leader? I do not think worship leaders need to say much, but sharing brief thoughts in between songs can significantly help your congregation connect the dots in worship and encourage them to engage. I usually have one or two places in the worship song set list where I will share a thought or lead the congregation in prayer. Planning and leading songs is an important pastoral role of a worship leader. For me, that’s the easy part. Lately, I have been pushing myself to pastor my congregation in between songs, and I want to help you do the same. Here are five things you can say in between songs as a worship leader.
