Abstract
Stepping into leadership on a church council is a challenging calling. This project demonstrates that the ministry of worship can be used to offer church council members a more clearly focused and more richly rewarding experience of serving in leadership. This intervention introduced a format for meetings based on a pattern for worship, and through mixed-methods research, affirmed that a meeting modeled on worship improves council members' sense of purpose, sense of effectiveness and sense of satisfaction.
