Hi! I’m Tim Brown, and I’m happy to introduce Worship Weekends to you; a resource for guidance and support, so you can confidently lead your congregation into a deeper, more intimate worship experience.
Statistics show that on average, churches in America have fewer than 100 members.
Churches this size can often struggle with finding enough volunteers for the music department. And because they don’t have enough musicians, if a person can sing or play at all, many times they’re asked to be on the platform without any guidance.
Most senior and staff pastors will have some formal biblical training. However, the average worship leader, whether paid or volunteer, has not received any kind of worship preparation.
A few more stats to consider:
- The average sermon last between 25-35 minutes / the average worship set is between 20-40 minutes. That means the worship leader shares almost equal stage time with the pastor.
- On average, we only retain about 40% of what we hear spoken, while we retain about 70% of what we hear set to music. That means that the worship leader potentially has about 30% more influence in the congregation.
Combing all this information –
The worship leader shares equal stage time with the pastor + Potentially has 30% more influencing power + Generally, doesn’t have any formal training = Potential complications!
This is where we come in!
I am a worship leader that helps other worship leaders who feel overwhelmed by their lack of formal training by being a resource for guidance and support, so they can confidently lead their congregation into a deeper, more intimate worship experience.
But I didn’t start out here!
Confession…I was that guy I described before. I started leading worship because my church was in desperate need of a worship leader, and they knew I could play, so….they asked me to take the job. I didn’t have any idea what I was doing and I made a LOT of mistakes along the way. Thank God for mercy!
I did have a few people who offered some advice, but for the most part, I was on my own and had to figure it out through the school of hard knocks.
Since that time, I’ve served as a worship leader in several churches, graduated from the Rhema School of Worship, and traveled as part of the Kenneth Hagin Ministries worship team. I also hosted the annual Transcend Worship Conference for four years, which was established to train and equip worship teams with practical tools to help them successfully serve in this vital role.
I have only been on staff in churches with small budgets and few volunteers. So I understand what it’s like to struggle with the unique challenges of a small church music department.
I have a passion to help other worship leaders like me…I want to be for you, what I wish someone had been for me. That’s why I began Worship Weekends.
I want to be a resource for worship leaders which prepares them with the necessary tools they need to accomplish what they’ve been called to do. And with over 20 years of experience, I know how to help you!
Here’s the breakdown of how a Worship Weekend will go. I will come to your church to have a weekend-long worship seminar with you and your worship team. We’ll be together all day Saturday and Sunday morning. Saturday morning we’ll focus on the spiritual side of worship. Saturday afternoon we’ll deal with the technical side. The end of the day we’ll rehearse for the Sunday morning service. Then Sunday morning I will lead with you and your team, which will conclude our time together.
I would love to work with you and your worship team! If you’re ready, take the next step by scheduling a free consultation to see how a Worship Weekends event can benefit you!
