Description: In this session of practical music ministry, we will examine the Importance of foundational personal concepts for the Music/Worship leader. The concepts include: Who am I? Whose am I? Faith, God, Church, and Worship. We will then examine closely Lovelace and Rice’s “four main characteristics of music which give it an organic relation to worship” and what that can mean today. We will also examine the music minister’s visioning & values – or, why we do what we do? The session will conclude with some of the joys and challenges found in Music Ministry.
