If you are a Worship Leader looking for some great new worship songs to add to your set list, here are my church’s 18 Fall Favorites this year. 

As a Worship Leader in a Small Church, I’m regularly on the hunt for new Worship Songs that will work for a smaller band in an intergenerational, contemporary context.

Besides publishing my Top 3 New Worship Songs each Month, a few worship leaders have asked me to publish a list of my entire “CURRENT FAVORITES” file. So, I’m happy to oblige.

Because I regularly rotate worship songs, as new ones appear, older songs get retired.

I try to keep my current favorite list to less than 30 songs. Each quarter you will find new ones in the mix.

WORSHIP MINISTRY: SMALL CHURCHES vs. BIG CHURCHES

All songs that work in big churches with big bands do not work well for the small church!

For songs to work in my small church, they need to meet a few criteria.

  • Lyrics that relate to multiple generations – old and young
  • Songs that don’t rely on a huge band, or even always a full drum set
  • A singable range – not crazy high or jumping between octaves
  • Not too many songs, or too many new songs
  • A mix of tempos

And if you are regularly on the hunt for new songs like I am, check back every 30 days for my Top New Worship Songs. Each month I feature one fast, one medium, and one slow tempo song. Click here to check out TOP NEW WORSHIP SONGS for SEPTEMBER 2019

But for now, here’s a quick post listing our church’s favorite Worship Songs for the Fall of 2019.
