Philosophy of Worship
What is your philosophy of worship?

 

“Worship” is not music. Worship is how we choose to live our lives. Music is one way to express gratitude, joy, hurt and need for God in our lives. I consider the Sunday service a “worship experience” and something that is part of a life lived fully worshiping our creator.

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

 

The lead pastor is the boss and cares for his or her employees. The lead pastor sets expectations for the employee to attain. The employee clearly knows what is expected and delivers accordingly. Ideally, there is a level of friendship and trust that allows the relationship to thrive at a level deeper than the boss/employee standard. I consider my current boss a friend and feel cared for in ways that are healthy and in ways that build trust.
