Why Worship Matters

On this episode, you will hear from two veteran worship pastors on “Why Worship Matters” in the life of the local church.  This is more than a simple task list of preparing songs and having a great presentation, it’s really about the presence of God beyond Sundays.  Pastor Nate Swisher and Pastor Richie Cayabyab talk boldly and convincingly on the role that worship leaders play today and how all church leaders can model worship that is truly about God first.  Pastors, this is definitely a podcast for your whole team, but especially those who have the role of leading worship in your churches, so listening to this together would be a great benefit!
