Mike Harland joins us on Revitalize & Replant to discuss the role worship plays in a revitalization.
- The starting place of your worship ministry in a revitalization is who’s in the pews now—not who you wish was in the pews.
- The most healthy thing you can do in a worship ministry is to make sure the people in the congregation are engaged in worship.
- Talent attracts talent.
- A church needs to understand what a healthy worship ministry would look like in the church and then work toward that goal.
The three keys that we discuss are:
- Find your “who”
- Find your “how”
- Set the goal.
Resources mentioned in this episode include:
- Worship Essentials
- Revitalize Network
- Revitalize Bundle
- Replanter Assessment
