In this concise and clearly written handbook, worship leaders from every denomination and musical style will find a wealth of information on how to develop their leadership skills and improve the effectiveness of corporate worship. Kevin J. Navarro explains the four basic elements that are crucial to becoming an effective worship leader: theology, discipleship, artistry, and leadership.
The Complete Worship Leader provides a holistic, biblical view of worship leading as drawing people into God's presence through more than song leading. It shows worship leaders how to:
Ž appropriately use the technology available today
Ž become a theologian, a disciple, an artist, and a leader
Ž build and lead a worship team
Ž engage the five senses in worship
Ž model worship and rally others to participate
and much more!
Pastors, worship planners, lay leaders, and college and seminary students from a cross section of denominations will benefit from this simple yet thorough discussion of what it means to lead the body of Christ into a genuine experience of worshiping God.
