Remember why we do it. Our vision is to create an atmosphere where people meet the Hope for their soul...the Person of Jesus Christ and the hope He offers for the situation they're in.
Our standards for our Lead Vocalists:
Know the songs...not just the one your leading...lyrics & theme
Lead the song...meaning, every time you lead a song engage the people and encourage them in the message of the song. This could be a simple spoken encouragement, reading a scripture, singing an encouragement, etc. Allow the Holy Spirit to lead you...listen to His prompting.
Lead in expression. We each have different and unique ways to communicate passion...that's awesome! Be diligent to communicate it! (Smiles, movement, dancing, sincerity)
