Philosophy of Worship
What is your philosophy of worship?

 

Colossians 3:16-17 says, “Let the word of Christ dwell richly among you, in all wisdom teaching and admonishing one another through psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs, singing to God with gratitude in your hearts. And whatever you do, in word or in deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.” This has been my root verse for ministry since I felt the Lord call me to ministry many years ago. In verse seventeen it says the phrase “Whatever you do,” this means that worship is much more than singing songs. God gives us all different gifts that we can use to glorify God. For myself, one of my gifts is leading others in a corporate worship setting. With this gift, I take the preparation for the worship service very seriously. This includes: selecting songs of praise that are doctrinally-sound, working with the volunteers to make sure that they are well prepared, and leading the congregation in worship together as a collective worship team. While we are leading the congregation in worship, it is important that we are not taking the light away from the most important audience member, our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. When we are singing praises, all of our focus and attention should be on praising God for all that He has done. Worship is a necessary reaction for following Christ and I strive to make sure to present a space where believers can praise God and non-believers can hear the Gospel through the lyrics being sung.

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

 

I believe that Pastors and Worship Leaders should work together to advance the Kingdom of God in their community and church. There should be ample amount of communication (sermon topics, song choices, order of service, etc.) between the two. There needs to be trust between the two pastors as well. This comes with time and fellowship. I personally want input from the Pastor on different elements of the worship service. Lastly, I believe that staff members should encourage each other frequently and be reminded of how blessed we are to serve such a loving God.
