Christmas is a time of joy and happiness. There's lots of good things going on. But, when you're in ministry it doesn't always feel that way. Your schedule is loaded with events at church which you not only have to go to, but you're in charge of them as well! There's a lot going on and it's easier to be stressed out than joyful during the Christmas season. Luckily, there are a few things you can do to stay joyful during the Christmas season.
🔴 Here are 3 secrets to experiencing joy in ministry during the Christmas season:
1️⃣ Remember this is only a season
Remember this is only a season and that means two things.
First, this season won't last forever. Is December a long month? Yes. But think about the rest that comes after it. In ministry, there are seasons of work and rest. There are busy seasons in the church and times when it feels like not much is going on. (If you are only experiencing busy seasons, you need to re-calibrate your thoughts on what it means to rest). So lean in this season - work hard - then rest well once it's over.
Secondly, this season won't last forever! That's right I said it again! The Christmas celebration doesn't last long so enjoy it while you can. Embrace the Christmas season!
2️⃣ Acknowledge what you get to do
Think about the privilege of what you get to do. Not even in terms of getting to share the story of Jesus with people - we'll get to that in a second. But think about the specific things you get to do. No matter what job you have or area of ministry you serve in, you will be overwhelmed at some point. So, what's better than being overwhelmed by something you love - playing music and leading worship! And what's better than being overwhelmed with people you love to be with - your worship team! We're all in this together!
3️⃣ Think about the story you get to tell
We have the greatest story to tell this season. That Jesus, the son of God - God in flesh - came to earth to save us. That's the celebration we get to welcome people into this Christmas season. If we're not joyful about it, why should they be? Lead joyfully this Christmas!
My favorite part is each student’s face after.
I didn’t take many pics at the recital yesterday but It was so fun to see each student conquer their fear and perform. Their faces are the best - they are so proud of themselves after once they realized they could do it. ✨❤️ I looove it.
Got to let the kids hang with Grandma & Grandpa Claus last night. I think Lincoln’s general lack of enthusiasm for anything other than the sucker in his mouth was probably my favorite part. Haha! Also the random elf photobombing because she looks like she could totally be part of the fam. #Christmas
Yes! He’s Emmanuel with you! It’s a season of waiting in expectation but it’s also a season of positioning. Position yourselves friends to get with the one who is WITH you. Nothing will change and bring an anointing to your life like being with Jesus Christ. ❤️
“No matter what, I’ll trust in you to help me. Nothing will stop me from praising you to magnify your glory!”
I love genuine worship... even if it’s messy (especially if it’s messy). I don’t care. I think so many of us are too comfortable with going through the motions; singing songs without thinking; focusing on all of the technical things and making sure everything is “perfect”. But, I don’t think God wants perfect.
Now, don’t get me wrong. I believe God absolutely wants our BEST... but if we are constantly striving for perfection, we will lose sight of what true worship is.
Worship isn’t supposed to be a show... it’s meant to be a beautiful, authentic expression of adoration for Jesus. Let’s stop complicating it and start pressing in deeply and authentically... my soul wants that so badly. ❤️
So much fun celebrating with the kiddos tonight at our church’s Christmasville festival. These guys had a blast!
Perguntei ao Will se ele gostou dessa foto, ele disse que não porque a luz do ambiente não favoreceu tanto, mas eu curti demais, primeiro porque é uma foto com alguém que eu admiro muito, depois que ficou super espontânea e dá para sentir a alegria do momento só em olhar, não é verdade? kkkkkkkk, mas eu na verdade nem sei de onde saiu tanta luz... Kkkkkkkk, bom eu só sei que esse ministro de louvor tem voz celestial, aí juntou dois ''anjos" no mesmo lugar deu nisso... Kkkkkkkk, Deus te abençoe Will! Obrigado por esta honra! 😍😆😉 @william_tavaresss

“I’d rather stay in the wilderness than go into the promised land without Your presence.” ❄️
Snow storms in North Carolina means having church in the living room. The Holy Spirit moved greatly this morning despite my phone battery and social media limit trying to keep us from being great. 😒 I don’t know what blessed me more - the message on the beauty of God’s presence and the weight of His favor...or the fact that I got to lead worship in my fuzzy socks. 😏 (I don’t have any obligatory snow pictures because living in Michigan ruined the magic of snow and I stayed inside the whole day 😬😬)
Let us know the oldest song you sang today 👇👇👇
One day in God's courts in better than a thousand years elsewhere!

Advent Hymn - Christy Nockels
We’ve been working on this Advent dance/drama piece since September, and today we got to share it with our church. I counted no less than 15 people that had a hand in making it what it was, and I just sat back and provided subtle direction and guidance. These people are some of the best at what they do.
