    Today's worship leader....

    There is a dramatic change in the most current genre of contemporary worship. The newest worship leader attitude and technique is not that of leading others to worship God, but more of a presentation of personal abilities and agenda.

    Seasoned worship leaders know that the spirit of God moves through a congregation when their hearts and minds are focused on God alone. Many worship leaders of the old school realize the importance of listening to the spirit of God and obediently following the leading of the Spirit. This seems to be in contrast to the current protocol of the worship leader being oblivious to congregational needs. Many seem to be more focused on personal skill level, presentation and program time line.

    Worship must be focused on God alone. It is by this posture we fulfill scripture and God's commandment with reference and love for God with all our "heart, soul, mind and strength." (Mark 12:30 NIV)

    "Worship is an act of communication between God and his people." This being said, worship must touch the lives of people, stimulate personal and spiritual formation, and bring healing. Communication between God and the individual is vital. How then is this expectation achieved if so many members of the congregation are observers to a performance and not active or even casual participants?

    In the past, effective and vibrant worship leaders took on a shepherd's task of nurturing and protecting those put in their care. Church choirs, ensembles, and praise teams were pastured, taught, educated and practiced so they in turn could become co-leaders in worship. It was through the efforts of the worship leader or music minister to tend the sheep, so to speak. Regretfully, it seems that many of our newer worship leaders are in it for their own personal, gain, glory, growth, career or some psychological need. Slowly the days of a genuine and sincere leader that served with a servant heart for the benefit and well being of others in the process of leading others to and glorifying God seems to be fading away. Maybe it is time that these servant-minded leaders step up to mentor and teach these new leaders the most important aspect of their calling.
