Biblical Worship » Worship Leader – Musician or Minister?.

Churches who advertise and hire ”music directors” instead of worship pastors are setting themselves up for a spiritually shallow program with possibly good music but little spiritual fruit. What is good music without the passion of the Gospel? It is a concert. It is entertainment. I love beautiful music but in the Kingdom’s work, we are to be about the business of impacting lives with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Can we have both? Yes – excellence in all things and all things to the Glory of God, but we must start with a worship leader who is called to be a minister of the Gospel. Pastoral worship leadership should never be sacrificed on the altar of “beautiful music.”
