Scriptures And Reminders For Worship Leaders


Don’t miss these important reminders for worship ministry leaders and team members.

‘Not by might nor by power, but by my Spirit,’ says the Lord Almighty.

– Zechariah 4:6b

If your ministry is going to be effective, faithful, and have a lasting, eternal impact, it’s going to be because of God’s spirit at work in you, not on your own strength.

But those who hope in the Lord
    will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
    they will run and not grow weary,
    they will walk and not be faint.

– Isaiah 40:31

There are many things we can be tempted to put our hope in – our ministry careers, our paycheck, our comfort and happiness, our reputation, popularity, status, or title. None of those will sustain you like you might imagine them to. This verse is a wonderful promise to those who are feeling weary.

And when they had prayed, the place where they had gathered together was shaken, and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak the word of God with boldness.

Acts 4:31

Seek God’s Holy Spirit in your lives. As leaders, we have no power on our own. Speak with boldness as you lead the church.

Better is one day in your courts
    than a thousand elsewhere;
I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God
    than dwell in the tents of the wicked.

Psalm 84:10

I’ve always thought the phrase, “doorkeeper” is one awesome aspect of the worship leadership team. We’re holding open the door and it’s a more humble position than you might imagine in the world where worship ministry leadership is elevated in the church.

“I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.

John 15:5

You will make and are making a difference in your church because you are staying connected to Jesus, the true vine.
