Creativity in Worship Planning

Creativity in worship planning is both time-consuming and complicated. The easiest thing for us to do as worship leaders is to draw from a tried and true list of songs, occaSalem baptistry cross backlitsionally throwing in a new song. However, if we have been created in the image of God, He has given us the ability to create. He takes great delight in seeing his children follow in His footsteps, just as we are thrilled when our own children create something, whether it be a priceless work of preschool art, or the performance of an original piece of music.

As writers and worship leaders, we must challenge ourselves to be more creative, and help lead our people to do the same. It might be something as small as changing the service order, creating medleys of favorite worship songs, or utilizing different types of instrumentation on a song. For creativity to flourish in a church, the following attitudes are essential:

1. A willingness to take some risks, knowing that what we do might not be received enthusiastically at first by the congregation.

2. A willingness on the part of the worship team members to just listen sometimes. This might mean they don’t sing or play on every measure of every congregational or choral song on every service.

3. A willingness to put in some extra time to make the music the best it can be. It might mean we have to re-learn an old song in a new way.

4. A willingness to empower budding writers in our congregations to develop their skills, by utilizing their work whenever appropriate.

5. A willingness to discover and welcome new people onto our team, knowing they bring a valuable resource in their own creativity.

6. A willingness to keep learning. Even if we have been involved in worship leadership for a long time, there are always new, creative ways of thinking and doing. We must never stop learning.

Salem Chr choir h of the g 2017Creativity is God-given. What we do with it is up to us. We must ask ourselves, “How can I be used to reflect this incredible attribute of God?” We might just be surprised at how creative we can be when we take the time to allow God’s Spirit to direct and empower us. It will be a blessing both to our Heavenly Father and to our churches.

Who are we?
What’s the story of Worship Sounds Music? 

Travis L. Boyd

Travis L. Boyd

Travis L. Boyd is a Minister of Music and Worship, who has served churches in Oklahoma, Texas, and Georgia.  He is also a composer, with Choral Anthems, Songs, and Orchestrations published by Shawnee Press (now under Hal Leonard), Lorenz, Choristers Guild, Broadman, and Lifeway.  (Our website and this blog both have a full listing of our published music as well as a discography on our ‘Published Music’ pages.)  Travis’ music has been sung and recorded by The Singing Churchmen of Oklahoma, The Singing Churchwomen of Oklahoma, The Sons of Jubal, The Jubalheirs, The Pasadena Tabernacle Songsters, The Atlanta Choral Guild, InOvation, The Farrells, and serveral individuals who completed custom recording projects.  Travis’ goal with Worship Sounds Music is to provide music for the purpose of bringing glory to God and encouraging the body of Christ.  His music has been priced very affordably to make it available for churches with a limited budget.  He basically charges just enough to keep the website going and pay for the shopping cart and Pay Pal services.  Although Travis has been writing music for many years, our website is relatively new.  His music was formerly available only through his Publishers and through inquiries from individuals who had heard his music sung by the groups previously mentioned.  The website provides availability for the as yet unpublished music that God has given through Travis.
