Churches in Bradenton, Florida have the potential to draw in and retain guests with their worship music, but many struggle to create a successful worship ministry due to a lack of resources and talent. To ensure guests return, churches must understand their situation and dedicate time and energy to developing their team. In my experience, churches that execute traditional styles of worship with excellence are more likely to attract guests than those with a contemporary style that is poorly done. I have seen this first-hand while creating a worship ministry from scratch, which has now produced leaders who serve in churches across the country in various high-level positions.
The music your church produces makes a difference when it comes to whether or not a guest returns. To solve the problem of bad worship music, churches must first understand their situation. Smaller churches with limited budgets and few talents can still improve their music by recruiting people from outside the church to help “plant” the new ministry. Leaders must be willing to dedicate time and energy to developing their team, both musically and in terms of leadership capacity.
This includes forming a group of people who commit to serving for one year starting with the founding of the church. Additionally, pastors and congregations should be aware of how bad the music is so they can make necessary changes. To ensure success, churches should focus on building a strong team that is dedicated to creating excellent traditional worship music. This will help attract and retain guests, as well as provide an opportunity for growth within the church.
