Description: In practice, the role of the worship leader is often equated with being the lead musician…and only the musician. While musical leadership is important, that pattern seemed to be lacking in some areas. What are the characteristics of a more complete worship leader? A group of ministry leaders was called together by the Calvin Institute for Christian Worship to assess the qualities and disciplines of a more adequately prepared and skilled worship leader in the 21st century. In this class session we will discuss the six areas the study brought to the surface, and offer brief directional thoughts for implementing each practice.
