An excellent worship leader is continually evaluating themselves and their team. The devotions in Shaping Worship by Steve Baney are designed to shape the heart, passion, and skill of the worship leader, band, and choir. In addition to this excellent book, we recommend a tool for measuring your worship ministry's health called the Worship Leader Assessment.

What makes a good worship leader, worship band, or worship choir?


We've identified ten areas of healthy worship leading. The book teaches about each area of healthy worship leading. And the Assessment examines the participants in each area, which you can read about here.

What is the Worship Leader Assessment?


The Worship Leader Assessment is an online tool to measure the health and growth of worship leaders and worship teams. It involves a series of statements to which participants respond, evaluating their strengths and weaknesses in ten areas of worship leading. By understanding areas of needed growth, worship leaders and worship teams can implement strategies to take the quality of their ministry to the next level. This honors God and serves his people.

Who is the Worship Leader Assessment for?


The Worship Leader Assessment is for individuals and teams who lead worship. Individual participants can use the Assessment to identify areas of needed growth and to track their progress over time. Worship Team Leaders can use the Assessment with their entire team to identify strategies for growth, encourage team members, and reflect on their personal leadership needs.

Who created the Worship Leader Assessment?


The Worship Leader Assessment was created by Pastor Steve Baney. Steve has a Bachelor of Arts with honors in Pastoral Ministry with a concentration in Computer Science from Mount Vernon Nazarene University (Ohio) and a Master of Divnity with high honors from Ashland Theological Seminary (Ohio). Steve is an experienced pastor, worship leader, song writer, and author. Steve's music is used in churches around the world. Currently, Steve lives with his family in Bowling Green, Ohio where serves as Senior Pastor of Plain Congregational Church.

What are the minimum requirements for using the Worship Leader Assessment?


Each participant needs a licence and must have internet access. Because the Assessment uses complex math to calculate the results, it cannot be printed or taken on paper.

Do other's see the responses to the Assessment?


No. Participant's responses are kept private. Only their total scores are shared with the worship leader (the holder of the master account). This information can then be used by the leader to implement suggested strategies for growth.

How many times can I use the Worship Leader Assessment?


You may purchase a single license or multiple licenses for members of your worship team. For best results, we recommend using the Assessment for your entire worship team. Each license entitles you to a single use of the Assessment. But in order to track your progress and regularly identify areas of needed growth, we recommend that worship teams take the Assessment every 6 to 12 months. Comparing results to previous Assessments is a useful means of seeing the changes that are taking place in your worship team over time.

Is there a sample or preview of the Assessment?


Not yet. But worship leaders who want to try the Assessment on themselves before purchasing licenses for their entire teams can buy a single license at a reduced cost.

What is the process for using the Worship Leader Assessment?


The Worship Leader Assessment is designed to work in four stages.
  1. In the first stage, you'll work with your worship team to complete the Team Assessment. It involves a graph that you'll print and fill out together as a team. (If you're using a single license, you can still complete this stage on your own).
  2. The second stage is when individual participants will complete the online Assessment. Each participant responds to a series of statements about their worship leading habits. This stage continues until all team members have completed the online Assessment.
  3. In the third stage, you'll have access to view your team's results and begin implementing strategies for growth. This stage varies greatly from team to team, and is customized to meet your team needs.
  4. The fourth stage is optional, but highly recommended. In order to track your progress and regularly identify areas of needed growth, we recommend that worship teams take the Assessment every 6 to 12 months. Comparing results to previous Assessments is a useful means of seeing the changes that are taking place in your worship team over time.

How much does the Worship Leader Assessment cost?


You can read specifics on the cost of licenses on the Pricing page.

How can I purchase the Assessment?


When you purchase use of the Worship Leader Assessment on the Purchase page, you will choose the number of participants. Your church will have one master account and several sub-accounts for each participant. You'll create an account by answering a few easy questions (like name, contact info, etc.). Individual participants who complete the Worship Leader Assessment will be provided a login ID to access their personal sub-account.
