hello..I’m Dibora, I’m new here and I don’t know if I am the only Malaysian here.. My state is Sabah, maybe no one ever heard about this little state in Malaysia but we learn a lot from you guys(generally from the west)! By the way, I am very excited that I found this group/forum that I can share a thoughts with..
I am now 23 y/o and I have been a worship leader since 2010 till now. I have so many things to learn, I hope I can ask any question or share any thoughts in this group and of course it’s all about worship and hoping there will be a reply from any of you my sisters is Christ, thnks! God Bless you all 😀
I have my first question in mind.. Is it necessary for any worship leaders to say a long sentence/words before the next song start? or just say a few words that can encourage the people? and is it okay if we repeat the song title before we start the next song?(but in a suitable way)
Hi Dibora. Welcome – I’ve only just joined the site myself. I have been leading worship for about 5 years now, and I would say that it is not essential to say much at all at the beginning of or inbetween songs. So long as the congregation have enough of an introduction to realise which song you’re going into next I don’t think you have to say anything.
Sometimes I will add something if we have a dramatic key change or if the musicians are having a difficult time starting the song for whatever reason. I may even take some lyrics of the next song and expound on them.
