Worship Music is Intensely Theological

by | Sep 14, 2020

One of the great joys of being a part of the worship experience is that we are actually teaching theology.

For some reason, many worship leaders don’t view their role as one of teaching and instructions, but nothing could be further from reality.

Some church contexts have a “minister of music.” While I am not prescribing this, I do think this title gives proper dues to the role.

In other words, the minister of music understands that his role in the worship service is not as a “song leader,” but as an individual who has a role in preaching and/or teaching itself.

Do you see the difference?

But the actual individual with this title need not see himself as the sole person with this responsibility.

As I harp often, every musician is a worship leader. I’m only extending the argument a hair further to say that every worship leader is a music minister.

I don’t care if your current role in the worship service is to play the triangle.

If you’re there, you’re ministering in music.

By the way—even triangle players can benefit from what we teach in Worship By Numbers. Don’t believe me? Sign up today for free and check out “Secret #3.”

But only for a second! Then, go back and start from the beginning.

So whether you play the triangle, trombone, or the telecaster, there’s something for you. Start here: www.WorshipByNumbers.com.
