Young Aspiring Worship Leader
« on: January 14, 2014, 03:21:14 PM »
Hi everybody, I'm very new to this forum.

I'm 16 years old and I have been a part of my praise team for 5 years now, mostly playing electric guitar and drums. I recently bought an acoustic guitar, and my church doesn't have a youth praise band so I've been thinking about leading with a few other youth from my church. I am comfortable enough to lead and play guitar, but the problem I have, is that I don't sing.

I can cue the congregation to stand and all of that jazz, but if I'm leading I guess you kind of have to sing... So I just need some tips from fellow leaders from other churches, or maybe someone with some input they'd like to share.

Thanks in advanced.

Maybe partner with someone who can sing melody?

Yeah, but I will be singing... Just I'm not that good haha. Hopefully the sound guys won't make the congregation ears bleed.

Would it be okay if I just backed away from the mic? I think that's what I'd do. I'm being honest with you, I don't have a good voice so please don't try to say I do.

Also, would it be good if maybe my actual worship pastor was there with me? Like co-leading kid of thing?

Thanks.

Edit: Me playing acoustic or electric, and him playing the opposite that I do.
