Worship planning and leadership are not simply questions of which music to select. New worship styles emerge with each generation. Ministerial leadership in such an environment requires well-grounded theological and musical understanding. Ministers of music and worship are ministers first and foremost. Interpreting the current environment and leading with biblical and theological integrity is as important for the minister of music as it is for the pastor.
