Philosophy of Worship
What is your philosophy of worship?

This past year, I have really been leaning into Spirit Led worship. That’s not to say that planning and preparing for worship moments is not important, because it absolutely is. But I believe that through preparation, it can then free a worship leader to have a broader awareness of how the Spirit might be moving in the moment! My favorite verse regarding worship is from Romans 12:1, which talks about offering our bodies as living sacrifices…and declaring that THAT is our spiritual act of worship. Worship to me is so much more than a song or lyrics on a screen, it’s shown through a life fully surrender to Jesus.

Ideal Relationship with Lead Pastor
How would you describe the ideal relationship between senior/lead pastor and worship leader?

The perfect word I can think of to sum up this relationship, would be trust. The worship pastor has to trust the vision and heart that the lead pastor has for the church. In doing so, this will then gain the trust that the lead pastor needs to have in the worship pastor to carry out and execute such vision!
