Philosophy of Worship
What is your philosophy of worship?

In Psalm 34:3 it says, “Oh magnify the Lord with me, and let us exalt His name together.” To worship the Lord is to magnify, exalt and to praise Him in response to who he is and what He has done. God created us to bring him glory and to delight in Him. (Psalm 1:1-2) We see Jesus and the disciples singing in worship together in Matthew 26::30. Our Savior models worship for us. As believers, we are called to present ourselves as living sacrifices to the Lord. (Rom. 12:1). God’s word tells us that our appropriate response in worship to the Lord is to give Him everything that we are. Jesus says that believers must worship “in spirit and in truth.” (John 4:24). King David danced undignified before the Lord in worship when the ark of the covenant was returned to the Israelites. (2 Sam 6:14-15). David worshiped the Lord with everything that he could, in spirit. In Psalm 73 we see Asaph become raw in sharing his heart with the Lord beginning with focus on the wicked and not on the Lord. He has a heart change when he remembers who God is to him. He ends the Psalm in verse 28 with “But for me it is good to be near God; I have made the Lord God my refuge, that I may tell of all your works.” We must worship the Lord in truth, coming to him as we are. God gives us an incredible gift in music. Worship is more than just music. We have an incredible opportunity to model Christ wherever we go as worshipers of His name. t’s honoring God when no one else is around. It’s loving others as Christ loves us. In the big and the small things we are called to magnify the name of the Lord.

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

The relationship between the lead and worship pastor is based in trust. Worship pastors creatively support the vision and direction of the lead pastor. Together, they seek wisdom through God’s word and prayer help believers magnify Jesus in a corporate worship setting.
