Things You Don’t Want To Hear Your Worship Leader Say

Hey worship leaders, stir us up this Sunday to sing the Lord’s praises. But here are a few things that might not stir us as much as you’d hope?

  • Okay, now worship like you really mean it!
  • Don’t worry, these are young rattlesnakes and they’re not very poisonous…
  • I brought some spears for the men to use in worship this morning…
  • I’ve written some worship lyrics to Purple Haze…
  • Everybody remember the animal noises we went over last week?
  • This next song is in 7/4 time so it might feel a little awkward at first…
  • You’re going to love this folks – worship yodeling!
  • I don’t think that it’s fair that the kids in children’s ministry are the only ones who get to do wiggle worship…
  • Pull out your hankies or grab some Kleenex – we’re going to give the Lord a wave offering!
  • Turn to the person next to you, look deeply into their eyes and sing, “I love you with the love of the Lord!”
  • Alright, it’s conga line time!
  • Perhaps you’ve noticed that everyone on the worship team is dressed like David Bowie…
  • Alright everyone, let’s lift up our cell phones to the Lord!
  • Maybe you’re wondering why there are no instruments on stage except for this huge gong…
  • Push back the chairs everybody, we’re having a dance workshop!
  • In case you need some extra motivation to worship enthusiastically this morning you’ll notice our ushers have been given cattle prods…
  • Why should polka bands have all the good music?
  • I got a fever – for more cowbell!

Any you would add?
