I have a dilemma. My Pastor forbids the worship team to sing any new songs on a Sunday morning (this is when most people come to church so I think we could learn the new song together). When we teach new songs in the evening not many people come back (?) so only a handful know the new songs. Help!!!!
Pastors in many denominations are responsible for the entire service. and as such do "run" service times.
Ask him why no new songs, get his feelings and thoughts, maybe you can come to an understanding and a compromise.
I had one leader who was always introducing new songs, even before the music team knew them, he wasn't even able to play them sometimes. So I encouraged only a few new songs at a time and that the team know them well before introducing them.
