As a worship leader, I've been looking for useful resources to help challenge my skill set and theology and help me grow to serve my congregation better.
This podcast is very listenable, but is focused on being a platform to interview Christian Celebrities. It seems you have to be an author, a signed recording artist, or on staff of a large and/or famous ministry to have a voice here. A well-known personality is listed in nearly every episode.
The landscape of worship leaders is dominated, big time, by volunteer and part-time musicians working at churches with a few hundred (or less) folks in the congregation. Less interviews with famous-types and more conversations with seasoned, fruitful local worship leaders about meaningful topics rather than the latest book, CD, or multi-media approaches is needed. Let's discuss our theological approach to the multi-dimensional nature of leading worship. Let's discuss how to lead a team and work with volunteers. How to nurture and serve a pastor's vision. How to serve a multi-generational congregation with a variety of tastes and needs.
I'm way more interested in hearing from a seasoned leader with longevity serving a local, mainline, average-sized church than just about any famous or semi-famous person featured in this podcast.
