There are some things to keep in mind when inviting a professional artist to your church or group. I had the awesome privilege of sitting down with international musical artist Michael Harris to get a better idea of what church leaders can do to make an artist’s visit to your church a more positive experience.

1. Treat them like professionals.

2. Give them time for their personal story.

3. Allow time for rest!

4. Start the concert on time.

5. Make artists feel at home and relaxed.

6. Be considerate when the artist has traveled a great distance.

7. Have a competent person on the sound equipment.

8. Be ready to pay for expenses.

9. Give the artist time to rehearse before the concert.

10. Book the artist ASAP.
