Are churches offering worship to God or to worship leadership? Are our hearts as worship leaders centered on the true purpose of worship? Are we demonstrating that purpose with our own lives?
…a great article addressing these questions… check it out!
I’ll admit that I think this article is a bit harsh at times on worship leaders. It is easy to question the motives and “heart” of worship leaders because they are on stage, or get paid… but often the average church community member does not get to know the person before making such judgments.
My only major feedback would be that you get to know the person before you start offering your criticisms. Just because someone plays electric guitar with intensity does not mean that they want to be a famous rock star. True Christian relationships mean that you have an intimate community… and only in that kind of close-knit love can you offer genuine criticisms that edify instead of tear-down. Worship leaders are just people on a journey like anyone else.
