The Lead Pastor is really the Lead Worshiper.
Pastor Friend, what you do is lead worship! You lead the worship leader and the worship team. You lead the people in the act of worship. You even lead private worship by equipping an encouraging your people to spend time with God every day. There are biblical principles that can guide you in the processes of change—advancing the Kingdom God peacefully through unity of heart and the consensus of the spirit.

Worship Studies is now recognized as a separate academic discipline—is it what God has for you!

Semper Reformanda!
