27 Worship Essentials: - Worship Leader - Musician (guitarist, pianist/keyboardist) - Songs (2 songs) - Lyrics – laptop, mahjong paper, LCD projector or print.

28 Worship Choose a comfortable key. Guys and girls have different range, find a middle ground. Choose songs which are current (sang at services). Dont just close your eyes – engage the congregation. It is not personal worship. Good to start with praise & end in praise too – engage the Homies, uplifting.

29 Worship Be Positive. Dont go with its been a long week, life is boring and mundane… God is good. Amen? Practice with musician before actual worship. Song signals – chorus, verse, bridge, repeat, free- worship. - How to signal with your hands (so they can also communicate with the guitarist and worship leader effectively).
