There are 2 aspects of leading worship that are good

to operate in, in a healthy balance

-pastoral & prophetic worship.

PASTORAL:

Looking to include the congregation / Accessible ‘forms’ of worship / An awareness of ‘where the people are at’.

(condition of the flock – David) PSALM 78:65-72
A GOOD SHEPHERD OF PEOPLE / GUIDING THEM WISELY & WELL (NIV = “INTEGRITY OF HEART; WITH SKILLFUL HANDS HE LED THEM)

Pastoring / SHEPHERDING the people you serve in some way. Pastoral care & service.

PROPHETIC:

Exploring musical territory / Singing new songs / Declaration & Proclamation / Prophecy in song, word, scripture.

The balance:

To just be prophetic = No point singing spontaneous & prophetic songs for 45 minutes with no-one joining in

To just be pastoral = everyone together, but not going deep into the operation of the gifts of the Spirit, High praise & worship

(either ‘way’ = not man pleasing – remember, seek what God wants)

Pastoral & prophetic = Leading a congregation together on a journey, into a deeper appreciation of & response to who God is.
