It’s amazing to think how many things are going through your brain when you’re standing in front of a group of people leading them in worship… what’s the mix like, did the gtr guy just miss that cue, is the bass in tune, are the words correct on the screen, are the words even up on the screen!, what’s the chord that I’m supposed to be playing on this part, I hope the other singers remember this part coming up right here, are we going too fast or moving too slow, I think I just went flat on that note, should we change something for next service, is the band pulling together as a team or are they just playing individually, etc, etc… And then there’s the whole crowd part… Are they into it? Are we connecting? Is this a dialogue or just a monologue?

There's the "science" part... right songs, keys, being in tune, transitions, etc...

There's the "art" part... reading the crowd, feeling the moment, flowing with the band, etc...

Not an easy task.

What I enjoy the most about worship leading is the way all my senses and awareness seems to be expanded and intensified. I find myself watching the science and the art (as you put it) all together, aware of every strand... I won't be surprised if this is how druggies feel when they are on drugs. At least for me, I KNOW I am addicted to leading worship! :)
