Tales of a Slide Clicker

    As a slide clicker (off and on) for about the past 5-6 years, this is definitely spot-on. You did forget one thing though… when the vocalists change lyrics and don’t tell you. Definitely at least 10 times worse than the CFO!

    The Refraininator: This worship leader will toss in the refrain from some ostensibly familiar worship song smack dab in the middle of another worship song, as led by the Spirit (here-meaning he came up with the idea on the spot – see J.D.’s rule about whether “on the spot” ideas should ever leave your mouth from the stage. I digress.). This commonly leads to “Watermelon, watermelon” as mentioned above.

    The ugly truth is that we don’t all know Doxology. I’m sorry.

    And the Slide Clicker must dress well, because if the S.C. freezes or flinches, the congregation will turn around to look at them.

    I’d say one of the biggest sins of the WL is only acknowleging the SC when things go wrong. So go ahead Mr. WL; hang out with your band buddies, drinking energy drinks and eating doughnuts between the sets all the while forgetting about me in the booth until something goes wrong. Just remember while you may have the mic, me and the SE (Sound Engineer) are plotting against you.

  7. i was a slide clicker too.

    sometime the pastor can be a natural enemy as well. when they move onto a point that nobody in the congregation caught or when they through in an extra Bible verse that is not on a slide but that the pastor thinks is on the slide.
