Philosophy of Worship
What is your philosophy of worship?

Worship is our appropriate response to Christ for what he has done in, for, and through us. It is a way of life; and is therefore participatory. When we worship together in a large group, it isn’t a time for us to simply watch a performance, but a time to lift our voices together in adoration and thanksgiving to the God who made all things work together for our good. There are some challenges associated with this. How are we connecting with the unchurched? What songs are resonating with the most number of people? How can we get people to sing? I have a very intentional praxis of worship planning that I use to help optimize the participation and relevance of our time spent together in worship.

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

United in purpose, respect, and affection; and working toward a common goal together.
