Here are a couple of quotes for your Sunday reading:
Those of us in ministry, whether it’s full-time, part-time, flex-time, or volunteer, are just stewards of God’s ministry. He uses us for a time, and then he moves us on and uses someone else. We don’t build dynasties – God builds His Church.
– Jamie Brown
I’m starting to think that a lot of modern worship music isn’t relevant to my church. It may be great at a massive stadium event, but that’s hardly the world I live in on a weekly basis.
We have to remember this: Our people come to meet with Jesus.
Oftentimes, the reason your church may not be worshiping is because they don’t connect with your song & style choice.
I’m convinced that we need more worship leaders who are willing to be less cool if it serves their churches well. There’s more than copying Hillsong. There’s more than mimicking Jesus Culture.
You have a voice. Your team has a voice. Your community has a voice. It’s time to find what that is even if it means you sacrifice “cutting edge” on the altar.
– David Santistevan
