although I posted a lengthy reply above, maybe this one will be more to the point.
If you feel that playing for money is what you deserve, get a paying club gig !
If you are not up for playing in a ministry ( no pay) situation, then don't.
Ok, I'm gonna say this but I certainly do not mean to offend or pass judgment on anyone, but of all of the worship team players I have played with ( 6 year period) , basically, only a very few ( 1 or 2) could cut a club gig outside the church and it was my feeling while playing in worship services that they knew this and thats why they were playing in church, so they could play somewhere ! I personally played OUTSIDE the church for decades before playing INSIDE the Church, like many here.
I have a real good friend who over the past couple of years learned some guitar and sings a few songs, he stinks, he knows it, we laugh about it, he plays in church, he leads worship sometimes, I think this is great but Scott will be the 1st to tell you that he plays in church because nobody will let him play anywhere else ! I have invited him to sit in with our band and maybe one day he will. I hope so.
I asked Scott the other day if he gets paid to play in Church , he said " No, I pay them to let me play "
He then joked that the Worship leader has offered him pay to NOT play !
funny guy !
