Leading A Diverse Congregation Of People.
The Diversity we are talking today is not of racial colour, ethnicity nor of culture we are talking of diversity of the reasons why we come to church.
Not everyone comes to church for the Lord, Not all of us are so super-duper spiritual we are all at different stages in life and our walk with the Saviour. Some come to chill out, nothing to do at home, some come to see friends, some are forced, some are facing challenges, some are just escaping life, some for the music alone, some for the word, some need that touch from God, some are just so hungry, some are burnt out and need rest and renewal, some need a semblance of Christ in their lives and just need to be identified with a religion.
A little confession goes a long way when I came to church whilst I was in my youth was because me and my friends were told that they was quite a number of nice girls and hence we went to church and now it’s a total different story. So here you are walking on the altar, stage, platform or podium and you are faced with a number of people with such attitudes and you have to all lead them to his feet.
As worship leader we at times lose touch with the people that we lead, we so caught up in a bubble that of perfection and excellence that we lose the very same people we were called to lead. It’s easy not to relate to someone and lead them as well.
How Can We Lead Such A Diverse Group?
“The Kind of Worship God is seeking, It has more to do with your closet than it does with the stage” David Santistevan
Our Closet our place of worship will create a platform for our public worship.
It all about his glory but we need to draw his people to him and we can only do it by his spirit alone.
“Leading People To The Beauty Of His Holiness”
