Looking for gift ideas for your worship leader? Look no further!
Whether they lead worship from behind a guitar or keys, we've got you covered with gift ideas for every budget. From practical gifts to heartfelt tokens of appreciation, here's a list of gift ideas that are sure to strike the right chord (pun intended) with your worship pastor - and your wallet.
We promise not to suggest any tambourines (unless they're really into that kind of thing).
In most cases, the best gift you can give to your worship leader is the gift of time.
Sometimes, the best worship leader gifts cost more than what one person can afford. For this, try getting the whole worship team and church to pitch in. This can result in significant blessings for your worship leader.
Avoid giving your worship leadership things they don't need or things they don't want. Communicate with them to know what they need. Most church staff don't need things like coffee mugs, pens, journals, or cheap tchotchkes. Most of the time when I get those things they either end up in the trash or given to Goodwill.
One of the worst gifts I ever received was the guitar pick punch. A well-meaning member who wasn't a musician thought I would love it and find it useful. It wasn't.
Sometimes, the best gifts are practical and offer your worship leader means to have a better life.
When my car got wrecked, a member of my worship team spent 2 days fixing it. Another leader I know told me that his church paid for him to get his US Citizenship. Not only were these gifts necessary and practical, but they were unique to our specific needs.
As great as these gift ideas for your worship leader are, the best gifts are done intentionally. The perfect gift for every leader is different, but the heart behind it all is Jesus Christ.
