Christian musicians are often valued more for what they do than for who they are---until questions of character arise. Examining topics like servanthood vs. stardom, teamwork vs. solitary confinement, and excellence vs. perfectionism, Noland provides a discipleship model to help your ministry team overcome challenges and joyfully serve in the body of Christ. 208 pages, softcover from Zondervan.

    Our choir is studying this book and it has been a real blessing in understanding the temperament of an Artist, using your gifts, being a team player, growing in your faith, etc. I think it is a great book.

    I cannot count the number of times I have read this book since it was first published! It is still my #1 recommended resource for any Christian artist (in and out of the church arena). Rory Noland addresses in love and truth the deep issues that face all creative type people in a clear straightforward manner. An excellent book for personal growth and for team devotions. bottom line: BUY IT and USE IT!

    This book covers all the bases in the arts leadership arena. Study of this book should be a requirement for all who are involved in this specific area of ministry. I am currently a solo worship leader in my small house church and I will use this material with those that God will bring into this ministry to serve with me. I wish that I had the advantage of this study material when I was part of a larger team in a larger church. Thank you Brother Noland for being obedient to the leading of God to write this book and share your experience with all of the artists that God wants to use in His Kingdom work.

    I am reading this book bits at a time, but God's heart is definitely at the center of this book and every artist of song, dance, music, etc... that desires to use their gifts to glorify His great Name and to proclaim His praise and worship.

    Well written. Glad I purchased it!

    This book is a must read for anyone who serves in the worship ministry at church - whatever area of ministry it is. Rory Noland hits the nail on the head over and over again as he tackles difficult subjects like the mantality of the "star" instead of the "servant." I am thoroughly enjoying this book and highly recommend it. It will get your heart and mind working together in service to the Lord who bestowed these talents to you!
