Pregame Strategy: Assigning Roles in Worship Team Planning

<p>Each Sunday sports fans all across the country crowd around television sets to watch one of America’s favorite past times: professional football. Why it’s such an exciting way to spend three hours is unknown. Maybe it’s the food, or the fancy uniforms, or maybe it’s just the thrill of watching a group of men function as a unit.</p>
<p>Whether in last place or first, no team would dream of taking the field without a plan in place. Players don’t wait to decide who’s taking what position when they huddle up for the first time on the field. Each role is defined long before the season starts. They train hard together and when they’ve done their work and know their role, on game day when the whistle blows, each player is free to have fun doing what he does best. Knowing what job to do and how to execute it is what makes teams work.</p>
<p>If your worship design team were about to play the big game, would you know what your position is? What about the others on the team? If your team has no game plan, you may find yourselves running in circles, and most likely finishing with a losing record.</p>

I was part of a meeting for our Eleventh Hour worship service last night and even though I wanted to talk about assigning team roles, I wasn’t prepared to do it.¬? However, when our associate Pastor started talking a little bit about it, I felt compelled to discuss the roles as explained in the article.¬? I also had the opportunity to listen to Jason and Len from Midnight Oil talk about this very thing at the CMN national conference. […]
