The Rise Of The Worship Artisan

This is a constructive way forward …

while I have no intent of replacing the term “worship leader,” I do believe that a more expansive term is needed to call us forward as worship leaders, artists and spiritual/cultural influencers. The term “worship artisan” is meant to give impetus to worship leaders to pursue a deeper mindset and skillset than they have actively pursued in our current generation, and to give permission to artists to embrace their role as leaders and influencers in the contexts of corporate worship as well as in culture. I want to speak to a group of people who live on the continuum of worship leaders or artists in the contemporary Church as we know it, and suggest a new way of thinking about, and doing, creative acts of worship both in the culture and in the community of the followers of Jesus.

Jason Clark ushers us in well …
