Philosophy of Worship
What is your philosophy of worship?

Worship is an offering of praise to God. Worshiping God is recognizing the honor that is due to Him and helping others see the worthiness of God. It is meant to be a gift given to Him whether it is a song, a thought, or an action given in obedience. The ultimate of worship is giving of oneself in order that God receive what already belongs to Him.

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

The ideal relationship between a Worship Leader and Head Pastor would be where the pastor and worship leader are in good communication with each other. The pastor spends some time with the worship director and/or the the team to properly communicate his goals and vision for the upcoming services. The pastor gives enough space that the worship director can have creative freedom in his approach to leading worship but willing to keep him accountable so as to give healthy feedback to encourage, challenge, and improve the service. The worship leader should have significant say in the style, arrangement, and production of the service, but all within the lead pastor’s vision.
