Podcasts are an incredible tool for learning and gaining new ideas with very little effort. You can listen while you drive to work, mow the lawn, work out, or clean the house (or don’t clean the house. You’re welcome). Worship Leaders should take advantage of under-utilized blocks of time to sharpen their skills and hear from the best leaders around the world. That’s why we’ve compiled this list for you of our top 10 favorite podcasts for Worship Leaders. Here they are:

Hillsong Creative Podcast
My newest favorite! The Hillsong guys are so far beyond my current abilities and thinking patterns when it comes to creativity, team building, culture, and leadership that every episode feels like a masterclass. I am so inspired to hear a group of people who are so excellent at what they do, yet are so humble, thoughtful, wise, and hungry to keep growing. If you want to up your game and expand your thinking, you definitely need to subscribe to the Hillsong Creative Podcast.
Worship Artistry Podcast
Worship Artistry may be newer to the podcast game, but they definitely aren’t new to the worship training game. Worship Artistry is one of the premier websites for video tutorials on songs, gear and tone. Now with the podcast, they break into your ears to share insights about worship and worship leading. They’ve had some great episodes covering each of the instruments and their role within the band. This is definitely one you can share with your team members!
Pro Church Podcast
Many worship leaders wear multiple hats. Many of us are tech directors, graphic designers, website administrators, video producers and more! Brady Shearer has done an incredible job with the Pro Church Podcast teaching you how to go from amateur to pro in all things related to church tech and communication. If your role is more than just leading music, and you feel like you want some help with all this “other” stuff, then this podcast is for you!
Carey Nieuwhof Leadership Podcast
Weird name, great podcast! If you’re a true church leader, you should care about more than just the music. The Carey Nieuwhof Leadership Podcast is a fantastic podcast for Church Leaders. Carey interviews some incredible guests such as Andy Stanley, Louie Giglio, John Acuff and more. Carey does a great job of keeping the topics centered around a single theme and asking practical and useful questions. This is definitely a must for anyone in ministry.
Craig Groeschel Leadership Podcast
This is hands down the best leadership podcast I have ever listened to. In twenty minutes Craig gives you more leadership gold than you know what to do with. Craig starts out by answering two listener submitted questions (which is always fascinating), and then dives into a topical teaching on leadership that is so deep and so clear, you’ll wonder if this man is from another planet! I love this podcast, and you will too. Once a month doesn’t come around fast enough!
Church Leaders Podcast
Andrew Hess does an amazing job with the Church Leaders Podcast. A relatively new podcast, Andrew interviews some of the top thinkers in the church today about topics of great importance. Always brief and to the point, this podcast will definitely get you thinking more broadly about your role in the church, and your church’s role in the world.
Ask Pastor John
Ask Pastor John is your daily dose of thoughtful theology and answers to difficult questions by one of the most influential thinkers and theologians of our time. Balanced, fair, and wise. How could you go wrong?
The Bible Project Podcast
The guys from The Bible Project have created a rich, academic, yet accessible podcast that will help you better understand the literary context and meaning of the Bible. Whether you consider yourself a “theologian” or not, you ought to deepen your understanding of the inspired word of God. Check out The Bible Project Podcast HERE.
