Pastors and Church Leaders…Need Help??

Slide1Everyone needs a coach — even the best of the best have them.  Do you?

One of my greatest joys in life is helping others to do what they love to do — worship…lead others in worship…develop their own teams and worship departments…and more!  It’s amazing what others see that you may not.

Help! My Pastor Is A Jerk

angryI KNOW, I KNOW — it’s not nice to call anyone a jerk.  Second, I am not writing this article with any one person in mind.  I’ve had great pastors in my career of almost 30 years. Lastly, I realize that ALL of us can have jerk tendencies.  Yes, all of us! However, for the sake of many people who are in rough situations, especially many worship pastors, we have to face the fact that sometimes even our pastors can be a…well, you know what I mean.  Help!!

What Does Worship Pastor John Larson Say About SUCCESS — congregation of 35,000 and growing

If you could get behind the curtain — so to speak — of one of the fastest growing churches in America, what would you see?  What is the key to their success?

 I personally love to study churches, to see what lies behind their success or lack of success.  I have been a worship pastor and very passionate about worship for a couple of decades.  I have led crowds of a few to crowds of thousands.  But in the last couple of years, I have been making a transition from being a ”player” to being a “coach”.  Eventually all of us should, at some level, make this transition.  It’s God’s design. Look at any team:  the coach may not be able to play as well as the players (sports, music, debate — any team), yet the coach is still crucial to the success or failure of the program.  The coach sees things that the players never can.  They are the ones that will lead the players to victory or defeat. 

 As a coach, I love seeing those who have “done well”; as a worship leader, I also love seeing worshippers who have done well.  And, of course, I want to know why.
