Worship Leading
There's no "I" in Worship Team...oh wait.

It’s interesting that while groups of musicians that play together are called "bands," worship bands are referred to as “teams.” Maybe it’s because logistically our lineups are always changing or because the team actually encompasses more than one band. I like the idea that the worship team actually functions like one. Here are 5 ways to turn your worship band into a team.

Brought to you by the satire department.

At Worship Artistry, we’re all about “bringing your best” and that goes TRIPLE for Easter so make sure you’re on your game. You should be stressed out.
