Here's what we do:

1. Our team contributes (via email) to a list of worship songs we think should be part of the worship service. The music leader (in our case, me) then decides, with feedback, which songs make the list based worship relevance (which includes theology and music style) and "singability" (vocal range and style doable by both the music team and congregation).

2. The music leader then prayerfully selects a song from the list, with an arrangement: the song-key, the vocals parts and the instruments, which is then distributed for individual practice. The music team usually already knows the new song.

3. We then rehearse it for at least 2 weeks (2 rehearsals) with feedback from the team. Once the team  feels we can lead the song, we the music leader includes it in the worship service (usually for two consecutive Sundays). 

4. Afterwards, the music leader evaluates (which includes feedback) and decides if the song makes our song set.

How do you decide and introduce new songs?

Yup pretty much the same way. Its amazing how some songs just do not work for a congregational setting. At least for that particular church.
