The Qualifications of a Worship Leader

2012 Doxology and Theology Conference


In this 43-minute session from the 2012 Doxology and Theology Conference, Michael Bleecker hosts Matt Papa, Ron Man, and Andi Rozier in a panel discussion about the qualifications of a worship leader. Michael Bleecker is the Worship Pastor at The Village Church in Dallas, Texas. Listen as they candidly share how they pastor congregations with a skillful combination of Scripture and music.

Like John the Baptist, may we feel the weight of glory to point others to Jesus, the Lamb of God. May we pray that he become greater, and we become less. May our art tell the gospel story and reflect our loving, creative God.
