People are genuinely hungry to encounter God in worship. While musical skill is important in helping them to do so, it will take more than just musicianship to pave the way for them.

  • What is the role of a worship leader?
  • What are the things that most people have to overcome in order for them to come into a real freedom in worship?
  • How can you build the atmosphere in worship where people can easily connect with God?

There are no slick formulas to answer these questions but there are principles which, when understood, can help to equip us as worship leaders to be even more effective in the way that we help people encounter God in worship.
