The role of worship leaders is very important. They can be a positive influence and contribute much to worship and harmony, or they can be a negative influence and a cause of division. Sad to say, but many worship leaders in South Korean churches are a negative influence. This is primarily because senior pastors select their worship leaders with an over emphasis on musical talents. Selecting a worship leader is a vital role of a senior pastor and he must thoroughly evaluate every candidate based on key biblical principles before hiring. The purpose of this thesis project is to equip the senior pastors of South Korean churches with an internship program that evaluates their worship candidates upon seven key biblical principles. It will provide a theoretical foundation for the program, examine the development of worship leader selection processes within South Korean churches through a historical survey. These principles can be used to evaluate worship leaders and about 100 worship leaders will be evaluated with the seven principles.
