Today, The Gospel Coalition released a blog post written by Keith Getty. This post gives great insight on ways to improve congregational singing. These may be common sense to some, good reminders to others or very helpful insight to others. Here are the five tips…with much more info on their post:
In each of those leadership events, I posed the question, “What are the things you ask yourself on Monday morning, in reviewing Sunday’s services?” Generally, the responses centered around production values, stylistic issues, people management, pleasing the pastor, or finishing the service on time.

2. Sing great songs.
3. Cultivate a congregation-centered priority in those who lead.
4. Serve the congregation through musical excellence.
5. Manage the congregation’s repertoire intentionally.
