Hey worship leaders. If you are thinking about “climbing the ladder” in worship ministry and maybe “making it” as a Christian artist one day you’re thinking wrong! And you may not be wholeheartedly following Christ. As Mark Hall from Casting Crowns explains in this short video, leading the worship of a local church, and writing songs for God’s glory and his people’s joy is the highest level any worship leader can “achieve.”
So check yourself, worship leader. Do you dream of one day making it “big?” Playing for crowds of thousands? Perhaps writing the next CCM hit? Dove award?
If your focus in on your own artistic success perhaps you are not as “far along” as you think you are. Remeber, God’s ways are not our ways, and what we deem valuable God often deems an abomination.
Let’s keep the main thing the main thing and draw our sense of accomplishment from Christ.
