To become a praise and worship teacher, you must first understand that you are there to lead people into communion with God by preparing everyone mentally and spiritually. As an individual, you must first learn and practice the concepts of praise, worship, prayer and service to God.
To succeed as a praise and worship teacher, you need to make prayerful preparation before every teaching session or service. You must carefully plan and steer the direction of the praise and worship experience. You are expected to dress appropriately for the occasion, and your appearance should not distract the attention of the worshipers.
You must be a good time manager who plans the sequence of events in the service. Start by choosing themed songs that tie into the message of the day, thus setting the flow by laying spiritual groundwork for the teaching of the word that will follow.
As a leader, you must be organized, ensuring your worship team, vocalists and instrumentalists are on time for preparation, practice or team related activities such as prayer or teachings. You must be able to maintain discipline and firmly deal with issues that may arise by demonstrating high levels of maturity and spiritual understanding.
To begin teaching praise and worship, you must confidently illustrate concepts in the subject. You should be able to demonstrate and encourage others by developing the skills of each one. Set high standards of excellence, appreciate each participant for his part and demand faithfulness, commitment and unity.
