Thanks for visiting WorshipDeeper.com. Whether you are a worship leader or a current or future worshiper of God, you will find tools to inspire you toward deeper worship.
A little about me. My name is Tim Lucas.
I’ve been a volunteer worship leader for over 20 years and I’m also author of the book Learn to Lead Worship in 14 Days.
I’m now in the process of transitioning from frequent worship leading to teaching and training through this site.
It’s been a blessing to help so many believers from around the world take steps toward becoming a better worship leader. Many who come through this site don’t feel they are very capable of leading worship. That’s a good sign that you’re called. That’s my story.
I think God has a sense of humor because I’m the last person you’d expect to see on stage doing anything.
God did not gift me with charisma or good stage presence. In fact, he gave me a healthy dose of awkwardness around people. Thanks a lot, Big Guy.
But I think that’s the point. God doesn’t often use the most obvious choice for a job. Paul explains it in 1 Corinthians 1:26 and following:
Think of what you were when you were called. Not many of you were wise by human standards; not many were influential; not many were of noble birth. But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong. (NIV)
Paul also explains why: so no one can boast before him.
God has allowed me worship leading opportunities just about everywhere I’ve gone in life. I’ve never sought out worship leading roles or positions. They just fall upon me. I guess that’s how I know I’m called.
But a true calling is not without its difficulties. Some weeks I can’t believe I have to get up in front of people and try to lead them in worship. At times in the past I have such colossal fails during the week that surely just about anyone would be better for the job than me. But the worship team schedule is written, rehearsals completed, song list created. No going back.
After all, being a worship leader is 95% just showing up. I don’t consider myself a great musician but a byproduct of my consistency has been increased skill.
The point is that worship leading or being a worshiper of the living God in any capacity is a great calling and one that deserves effort, research, mentorship, and accountability. I’m here to offer a little of each of those. Plus, this is a place you know there are others who are probably having the same worship leading struggles as you are.
So let’s take the long and winding road to become masters of worship leading.
