I think I can see that it is possible for me to train myself out of a job as worship leader, not that my calling would be revoked or I would go into early retirement, but to train up a cadre of leaders who need the work (figuratively) so much that I would be the directional worship leader- Like Pace at FC Grapevine...But could I ever train my way out of a job as a lead guitar player? My whole team claims to be onboard with training and discipling the next generation... but is ANYBODY doing it?

Training up worship leaders or other musicians for worship is very much easier than training up lead guitarists. I don't see the urgency for it, because I don't believe lead guitar is a vital role in the worship team though. If you can ever come up with a structured and effective way to train up lead guitar players for worship teams, do let me know. :) I am toying around with the idea, but I probably won't go further than that because I am not a lead guitarist.

Our main expectation for our service is a prayed up, polished worship set using songs and techniques to minister to our two target people groups- to build up believers with the content of the songs- the lyrical content, and to draw non-believers with the sound of the songs- sounds like music. This year we're featuring songs from Hillsong London's "Jesus Is", and other music like Let God Arise... songs with lead guitar parts.
