5 Things That Should Matter to a Worship Pastor

5 Things That Should Matter to a Worship Pastor

By Admin on February 12, 2015

Recently, JD from Hillsong United shared 5 things that should matter to a worship pastor on Hillsong's blog. He said that at the beginning of each year he likes to re-focus on the things that really matter - always a good idea for leaders. 

The first thing JD said should matter most to a worship pastor is that Jesus is leading us. He said,

"We are responsible for leading people into the presence of Jesus... to do this, we need to know how to enter His presence and be very comfortable there... I can't get past Exodus 33:14 where Moses' authentic cry to God was that He would lead him! And Moses would not move unless the presence of God went before him! This is how we should approach every day."

The second important thing JD shared is that we are about fulfilling our Senior Pastor's vision (not our own). He followed up by saying, 

"It is so important that as amazing as our creative ideas might be, if they don't ultimately line up with what our Senior Pastor and leaders want, then we happily put them aside. The church doesn't exist to build our worship teams... our worship teams exist to build the Church!!"
