A six or twelve session worship training course for worship teams in local churches. How Would Jesus Lead Worship combines biblical teaching with practical training by Sara and Sam Hargreaves.

Download our free User Guide pdf, or the new Zoom/Lockdown User Guide pdf, and buy a copy of the accompanying book How Would Jesus Lead Worship for each member of your team to read between sessions (physical and PDF versions available). The 12 videos are free to stream below, but some people might find it more convenient to buy them on a memory stick.
 


We have had great feedback from people saying that the video course works really well as something for worship teams to do from their homes while isolated and unable to gather.

  • “We are reading the book independently and watching one video per week. This is working very well over Zoom. So actually the course is a really great ‘lockdown' resource.” Andy, Aberystwyth.
  • “The course and the new edition of HWJLW are brilliant. In a time where we have been forced to slow down a bit, this has been really useful for me to take stock and think again about worship in the church, reflecting on where we are as a church and I am personally.” Nick, Aylesbury.
  • “There has been positive feedback from those who’ve been involved. Some who I thought wouldn’t be very keen have joined us every time so far. It’s been very easy to lead. The notes are clear and there is a good variety of content.” Lesley, Derby.

To this end we have revised our User Guide to maximise the potential of doing this over Zoom or some other video chat application. Watch the videos, and then discuss them over video, and grow in Christ-like worship leading.
 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


There are 12 videos you can watch. Video A in each session contains biblical teaching on the person of Jesus - how he makes the way to us to come to the Father in worship, and how the example of his earthly life can inspire us to be Christ-like worship leaders. These sessions cover how we can be Humble Servants, Leaders with Authority, Creative Communicators and Reliant on the Spirit

Video B in each session is more practical, covering issues such as choosing songs, leading the congregation, arranging for a band and developing spontaneity. If you would rather not run this as a six or twelve week course you can simply choose from the videos which best fit your situation.
