Lay Worship Leader Training

by Adrian Smale last modified 21 Jul, 2020 10:54 AM

Revised May 19

Could it be you?

 Lay Worship Leader ministry is a vocation not just a job to be done. There are three tried and tested ways of discerning if this is what God is calling you to.

  • Do you have a sense of inner call?
  • Is this call affirmed by others?
  • Is there a need for this ministry in your church?
