As your church grows, your worship ministry should grow. As the young people in your church show interest and desire to use their talents in God’s kingdom, your worship ministry should grow! (Check out these 5 ways to include young people in music ministry.)
You should always be investing in and developing new talent!
But this can present some challenges – especially if you feel you have some limitations.

What about drums or guitar?
Ideally, every music department would have seasoned musicians who are willing to mentor new musicians learning their same instrument. (This is why I believe mentoring is important, plus some tips on how to be a great mentor.)
But, that doesn’t always work out.
Maybe your seasoned musicians aren’t on board with mentoring yet, or with work, families, and other ministry involvement, they simply don’t have the extra time. Maybe you’re in a smaller church or working with a smaller team and other seasoned musicians aren’t available.
