Service Leading

Service leading takes more than public speaking skills. Leading a worship service calls for Biblical reflection and care for God’s people. Whether you are a pastor or a lay-leader in your church, you will find help for leading the church in public worship gatherings. In this episode, pastors Brian Croft and Jason Adkins give practical advice for leading a worship service, answering questions such as:

  • How do you prepare to lead a service?
  • Should you write out your public prayers ahead of time or pray spontaneously?
  • How long should you pray?
  • What does a good Scripture reading sound like?
  • How do you learn projection and pace?
