Top 5 Reasons I Should be Your Worship Pastor

Are you part of a Church looking for a worship/creative arts staff member?

Here are the Top 5 Reasons I should be on your team:

1. I am a worshiper.

I often tell worship teams I lead, “The most compelling credential you have that allows you on stage is your relationship with the Father.” I hold the same standard for myself. Everything else is secondary to living worshipfully. Any “leading” I do in a corporate setting is really just a side effect of the fact that God is intricately involved in my life everyday.

2. God has called me to worship ministry.

No amount of skill, talent, money or resources is going to make me effective without God’s call. God has placed a powerful call to worship/creative arts ministry on my life.

3. My wife is loved.

I know how to love the Church because I know how to love my wife. I’ll let Sarah speak on this one. See some posts on her blog: Awake, Just One More, Love Song for Billy, HOT!

4. My daughter is obedient.

For 5 years Sarah did amazing job of raising Eve-Marie as a single mom. Over the last two years I’ve had the joy of parenting together with her. I love my girls like crazy and I manage my family well in accordance with 1 Timothy 3:4-5. You can take a look at what fatherhood means to me.

5. I am a learner.

Because “disciple”means learner, I equate following Jesus with life change. God is working on me in a radical way. Because of God’s love I’m not the same as I was yesterday. Apart from the Bible, prayer, fasting, fellowship, and personal and corporate worship, God tends to use books, blogs, magazines and experiences to change me.

If these are qualities you are seeking in a staff member please visit my resume page for more information.

    Passionate people are really hard to find. A lot of churches may be want experience, or how well you play your instrument or how much leadership you have to offer. But I think the most important credential, like you said, is the passion towards Abba, our Daddy. We are always learning, I heard someone saying, “the moment we stop learning is the moment we die”

    Hey man – keep going!

    Have you thought about doing a pastoral internship somewhere? I don’t have one to offer and don’t know any out there but I’m sure there must be someone in blogland who can hook you up to do like 6 months of “on the job” training or something.

    Yeah man thanks for the idea. Although it’s not quite what I’m looking for right now.

    I already have several years of experience in worship leading and running sound, running tech/media, creating video and graphics and doing lighting in a variety of contexts as well as several years of specifically local church experience. I am also currently very involved at Christian Fellowship Church in Evansville.

    This post is not to say, “I don’t have experience” but it’s more like “These are the things that are more important than experience.”
