Keys to Worship Planning: 3 Critical Questions

 Engage book web button big

“What happens in your services is of no use to your people if they don’t walk away with a clear understanding of how to incorporate the teaching and worship into their lives. That’s why it is so important to begin your worship planning with the end in mind.

At The Journey, we do this by asking and prayerfully answering these three questions in the early stages of our planning for each service:

  1.  What do we want people to know when they leave?
  2.  What do we want people to feel when they leave?
  3.  What do we want people to do when they leave?” 

              – Nelson Searcy and Jason Hatley
