Deep down, many of us long to tap into depths within ourselves that we sense remain just out of our reach, if only we knew how. Whether used by a group or individually, this guidebook encapsulates over 30 years of success ...more

This book is for worship leaders and those of us who are called to be worshippers. I know Tim to be great worship leader and now I know he is also a great writer. The book is informative and motivational. His first hand stories help make this book I truly enjoyed.

Born for Worship was easy to read, inspirational, and thought provoking.

As a relatively new worship leader, I knew I would learn from Tim's book. But I soon realized that even people with decades of experience will benefit from it. "Born for Worship" is both practical and personal, humorous yet serious about what is most important: our relationship with Jesus.

Tim gives practical information on topics including how to prepare for a worship service, ways to encourage your team, methods for personal worship even while leading the congregation, how to handle late team

"Todd, what do you do for a living?", I asked a guy I met (for the first time) at a community breakfast this morning. "I don't really feel like talking", he replied, "I've got a lot on my mind right now." "OK, fine", I thought to myself, "then I don't want to talk to you, either." Fortunately, I gathered myself and said (I hope gracefully), "OK, no problem, I understand". So we ate in silence for 15 minutes while I finished my breakfast and while the Holy Spirit reminded me of a phrase I had rea ...more

Tim has done a great service for Worship Leaders and their team members in writing Born for Worship.
Through his personal story telling and his experience of being a ‘regular guy’ playing guitar on a worship team to being a paid Church Staff Worship Leader, he paints a picture of the highs and lows of being in the ministry of worship participation. He shows what a privilege it is to lead God’s people in worship. He also teaches what worshiping God is all about.
His book is laid out in such a way

This book is a must read if you are involved in worship ministry and leadership. I appreciated Tim’s personal stories that helped applied the points he was making. The format made it so easy to read. This book can also be applied to any type of ministry that involves team and relationship building. I also appreciated Tim’s emphasis on your walk with Jesus and growing in Him as the most important part of worship ministry.

This book and this author excite me for two reasons. First, The author becomes vulnerable by sharing his real life experiences. Second, the author’s thoughts and experiences cause us to think critically in our own situations. The author explains how our own transformation can lead to God working through us to transform others. The application of this book is for everyone, even those of us outside the daily working realm of worship art ministry. This book is easy to read and has useful questions ...more

I chose to read Born For Worship by Timothy J Miller as a church volunteer. I wish I would have had this book to go through with my team when I was a worship leader or MOPS Coordinator! I believe it would have impacted the congregation by the transformation they would have seen in us. Although I knew the book is geared toward those serving within the church, it didn’t take long before I realized that these principles aren’t only for application at church and what I do there, but can affect my li ...more

The reader is offered insight to be better equipped in effectiveness as a leader in both large and small worship settings. His creative personal conversational style allows for developing skills, talent, and gifts in leaders and participants in personal and corporate worship settings.

I’m still in the process of reading this book but so far it’s great! Funny personal stories, very well written and wisdom that pertains to life in general. You don’t have to be in the worship arts to get something good out of this book.

Even though this book is written for those in the Worship/Arts, anyone can benefit from it. It's all about worship, and we are all Born to Worship. I especially enjoyed the chapter on Meet with the Master. It's very easy reading, and Tim's personal stories make it "real." ...more

This book will help any worship team in church, from small to large, become all God intended them to be. Also, this book can benefit all believers in Christ as they serve each other and the Lord.

Feb 27, 2019 rated it it was amazing
A very well written book that will encourage and inspire anyone who wants to give their best in serving at church (or anywhere, really). The main message is that God’s purpose for our ministry is our transformation, our growth and maturity. I loved frequent “Pause and Consider” stops in each section that are thought provoking and help the readers examine their hearts, motivations, weaknesses, etc.

A very easy read. Short sections in each chapter can serve as a daily encouragement. Or, like me, on

This book is great for leaders and members on the team. It deals with all aspects of the ministry, including personal growth, how to lead and how to be a part of the team. This would be a great resource to use and grow together. This can also apply to other businesses, personal lives, etc. We are all influencers. It is enjoyable and easy to read. Tim shares his own experiences which make it down to earth. It challenged me in my own personal walk. Highly recommend.

Author and ministry coach Timothy J Miller draws on over 30 years as a worship pastor and musician to help church professionals, leaders, and worship-arts volunteers to develop more impact.

He said “Yes” to Jesus in 1970. His 7-year-old heart understood this much, “I wanted to have the best relationship with God possible. Sin got in the way. I needed Jesus to by my Savior.” By age 15 he picked up
