Worship Leader as Pastoral Musician

Musicians who lead worship are not merely performers, directors, coordinators, or music industry peddlers. We are primarily pastoral people—priestly leaders who shape the prayers and acclamations of God’s people.

This vision for the role of a worship leader makes a huge difference in how we go about our work, how we select music and how we lead it, how we convene teams of musicians and how we relate to our worshiping communities. Come to hear what a wide variety of pastoral musicians are learning about their own work and to imagine what steps you and other leaders in your congregation might take to grow in this way.

Participants: David M. Bailey, Rawn Harbor, Monique Ingalls, Wen Reagan, Sandra Maria Van Opstal, and Ed Willmington, moderated by Zac Hicks
