Worship and arts pastors cannot simply be satisfied with crafting songs and asking people to sing them. We have a much higher calling on our lives – a calling to reflect the mission and way of Jesus to our families, neighbors, and those we’ve been entrusted to lead.
After leading worship for nearly fifteen years, I have come to the conclusion that it is a crucial role in the life of a worship pastor to lead the charge for seeking justice, renewal and redemption.
As artists, worship leaders and pastors, we must have hearts that are willingly broken and stolen by experiences of poverty and injustice. It’s only then that we can have a truer understanding and sense of empathy for the world we’ve been entrusted to lead towards Jesus.
