WMC – 0119 – The benefit of unbiased input on your Worship Ministry

It’s easy to get into a routine and just keep the plates spinning. It’s easy to lose some of the intentionality behind why we do our Worship Ministry. Ministry comes at us fast and often times with no respite. That’s why it can be so beneficial to have someone from the outside come in and give you some feedback on your worship ministry. That’s exactly what David and Kevin talk about in this episode of the...

Jesus didn’t even pick trained ministers to do the work of building his Kingdom on the...
