Holliman, Roger, "The Role Of The Pastor As The Primary Worship Leader In The Local Church" (2013). Doctoral Dissertations and Projects. 678.
The purpose of this project is to encourage pastors to embrace their role as the principle worship leader, rather than to accept and believe "I am not the worship leader." This thesis project investigates and examines a senior pastor's theological duty and obligation as the worship leader of his or her church, and provides the biblical mandate and approaches for how to do this effectively and as a team leader. Through personal interviews of six pastors, plus current research on the topic of worship, this thesis provides instructions on how senior pastors may implement strategies to enhance their understanding of the benefits of being the worship leader of the congregation.
