Whether you serve as a vocalist, instrumentalist, technician, dancer, actor, or in some other role, you know what a blessing it is to serve on your churchs worship team.

In the midst of rehearsals, setup, and myriad distractions, not to mention the busyness of daily life, its easy to miss the forest for the trees. How can you and your fellow team members be prepared to worship in spirit and truth as well as lead others in worship with integrity?

In this readable book, he offers practical insights on how to * Grow as a private worshiper * Encounter the character of God during worship * Respond to the character of God during worship * Be transformed by the character of God * Learn from ancient worship leaders and more. So relevant youll think the author was eavesdropping on your last church service, The Worshiping Artist is ideal to read either by yourself or as a team.
