Philosophy of Worship
What is your philosophy of worship?

Worship is the backbone for the mission of the Church. It is our motivating factor for every ministry that occurs in the life of the Church. We serve in the Church because of our love and adoration for God and all that He has done. Without this reverence and adoration for God, we would not be motivated to truly serve in the context of the Church. For this reason, I believe that worship is absolutely essential in order for a church to maintain a healthy dynamic. Since worship is integral to the Christian lifestyle, every individual ministry of the Church is an act of worship. We serve and attend various Church activities because of our desire to acknowledge God’s goodness. Every congregation has its own preferences, and the worship leader should be willing to adapt to these preferences while still being willing to challenge the congregation. Ultimately, worship lies at the core of the mission and ministry of the Church.

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

I believe that the worship leader should work very closely with the senior/lead pastor as well as the entire pastoral staff of a given church community. Worship leading is intrinsically a pastoral act, as it draws heavily upon the needs and desires of the congregation. For this reason, I believe that is is very important for a worship leader to work directly with his/her senior pastor so that the church’s ministry can be focused, cohesive, and all encompassing.
