bebeJeffersonton, Va.Age: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Very thorough!August 13, 2011bebeJeffersonton, Va.Age: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This 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.

Well written. Glad I purchased it!
Kathleen Poelker Kokat5 Stars Out Of 5September 30, 2010Kathleen Poelker KokatThis 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!
