There will come a time when God calls you to a new worship ministry position; you’ll be forced out of your present position; you’ll voluntarily step aside for a season; or you will retire from worship ministry completely.
So if or when one of these scenarios occurs, what will your church remember more about your worship leadership?
Will they remember…
- How many new songs or new people’s names you knew?
- How you uplifted or undermined your pastor?
- How much you loved playing with your kids or playing your guitar?
- How much theology or musicology you knew?
- How you strived for harmony or sowed dissonance?
- How you were too busy or welcomed divine interruptions?
- How obsessed you were with fixing broken relationships or wrong notes?
- How you controlled or empowered worship?
- How you were a lifelong learner or didn’t need to learn anything new?
- How you were threatened by evaluation or thrived on collaboration?
- How you treated them as passive spectators or active participators?
