I Love what Perry Noble says in his latest post about worship…I am quoting the bullets, but you NEED to read the whole thing my fellow worship people. I would love to visit his church or conference some day after reading his blog for a while now. Here are his "Eight Things I Think Every Worship Leader Should Know."
#1 – When you are singing…OPEN YOUR EYES!
#2 – You are not the preacher–SING!
#3 – Surround yourself with talented people.
#4 – Write songs
#5 – Go to concerts
#6 – Read Scripture
#7 – Work in unison with the pastor – (this one deserves a full quote)
Lee and I are in creative planning sessions every week. He knows the sermon topic sometimes months in advance and spends time praying over songs and set lists. After we discuss the message in a creative meeting we then talk about the music. We don’t do the “I do the message, you do the music and then we will see what happens.” We are a team!!!
#8 – Place God’s dream before your own.

So read his entire post, and let me know what you think. Is he spot on, or what!?
