Future of Worship?

The other day we received a post from Taylor on the Future of Worship:

Ok…so this how i feel…i am a high school senior who leads 2 bible studies and is a worship leader in the youth department at my church…worship in my opinion needs a change because people’s hearts are not being moved or focused on God because US worship leaders are dictating what is goin to be done…if people were able to sing what they feel then the entire outlook of worship would change…worship would no longer be words and chord changes, but rather a major outpooring of true emotions and sincere attitudes towards God the maker of heaven and earth!!!  So to rap it up..the idea of worship  (in my opinion) needs to change.  if you don’t believe me look at Matt Redman and the song Heart of Worship, and let’s get back to what worship really is!!!

We tend to agree that what Taylor is saying is absolutely true. The language of Worship is so typical and has become one unified sound of the industry. 

We are going to tend to only focus on artists and Worship Leaders from this point out that are original and focused 100% for the heart of Worship and not selling records for major labels. 

What is your opinion?

  1. Taylor is so right.

    “But the time is coming—indeed it’s here now—when true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and in truth. The Father is looking for those who will worship Him that way. For God is Spirit, so those who worship Him must worship in spirit and in truth.” (John 4:23-24)

    I’m so glad to read what Taylor said. I believe this is the Holy Spirit speaking to her heart and that she, and we, should listen and say “Yes, Lord, we’ll worship in spirit and in truth and not in empty words and formulas.”

    All of God’s kids need to be involved in this, whether it’s in the area of song or testimony or whatever gift the Spirit wishes to manifest at the moment. Taylor is right. Worship isn’t the provenance of the elite, but rather the responsibility and privilege belongs to all members of Christ’s body.

    Grace and Peace,

    Cindy
