CPL WEBINAR: THE PASTOR AS WORSHIP LEADER / THE WORSHIP LEADER AS PASTOR

JULY 23, 2015 | 3:00 - 4:00PM (CENTRAL TIME)
DR. BRANNON HANCOCK
Brannon is a pastor, scholar, worship leader and multi-instrumentalist serving as Assistant Professor of Practical Theology and Christian Ministry at Wesley Seminary at Indiana Wesleyan University and worship pastor at First Church of the Nazarene in Marion, Indiana. He is an ordained elder and has been planning and leading worship in local churches for 20 years. Brannon studied literature and music at Trevecca Nazarene University in Nashville, TN, and received masters and doctoral degrees in theology and the arts from the University of Glasgow in Scotland. 

WEBINAR DESCRIPTION:  Even if someone else plans the service and leads the music, the most important “worship leader” in the room on Sunday morning is the senior pastor. In addition to their preaching and sacramental ministry, many lead and solo pastors become de facto worship planners, song leaders and liturgists. Correspondingly, in many contexts, worship leaders are no longer just “song leaders” or “ministers of music” - they also play a key pastoral role in the life of the congregation, and may be called upon to preach or teach, conduct weddings, baptisms and baby dedications, provide counseling, and contribute as part of a pastoral team to the overall vision and direction of the church. This workshop is designed to help pastors (re)discover their priestly role as worship leaders, and to help worship leaders understand what it means to lead “pastorally.”
