…so asks Michael Bleecker, pastor for worship at the Village Church in an email he sent to his musicians and vocalists last week. The blog post explores the following:
Are we growing in godliness?
Bleecker urges his team to be godly people at the outset.
Are we growing in preparedness?
In exploring this question, Bleecker urges timeliness in rehearsals, among other things as helping his team be prepared.
Are we growing in our gifting; are we improving?
This section began with a call to improve in ear, timing and creativity, but then branched out in ways that we could improve if we are: vocalists, guitar players, drummers or keyboard players, including lots of links to helpful places on the web.
Are we serving for the right reasons and in the right ministry?
This question’s explanation was filled with much grace as Bleecker urged his team to not be misplaced if God would choose to use them elsewhere, as well as exhorting those who are called to serve to continue sacrificing for the glory of God.
It was really a helpful post. So, read it but better yet, answer the question honestly: are we growing?
