20 Songs To Lead a Contemporary Church Service

Aug 21, 2013

"Leading a church in worship is an amazing experience as you play your instrument and sing your heart out to God. Sometimes I will look at the congregation and smile from ear to ear as I catch glimpses of people raising their hands into the sky to praise our mighty God!"

Being a worship leader is a wonderful experience! Leading a church in worship is an amazing experience as you play your instrument and sing your heart out to God. Sometimes I will look at the congregation and smile from ear to ear as I catch glimpses of people raising their hands into the sky to praise our mighty God! Jesus said, “Where two or three are gathered in My name, there am I among them.” (Matthew 18:20) Here are my 20 favorite songs to lead the congregation in worship!
