A Guide to Worship Ministry centers on four main areas of worship ministry: preparing for worship ministry, leading the worship ministry, preparing for Sunday, and discipling the generations through worship ministry. The book addresses topics such as discerning your call to ministry, working on a church staff, planning and leading worship services, and equipping your worship teams. A Guide to Worship Ministry looks at the day-to-day work of the worship minister, offering insights and personal stories. It is an important book for those getting started in worship ministry and a refresher for those who have years of experience in ministry. ""Every worship leader needs hand-selected guides to help teach, shape, warn, and encourage him for this sacred task. Brewton's book will faithfully guide any worship leader wanting to serve the local church in fruitful worship ministry."" --Matt Boswell, Hymn-writer, Founder of Doxology & Theology ""A Guide to Worship Ministry may be one of most practical and helpful books available for church musicians and worship pastors. Greg shares timely insights for leaders at all stages of their journey, but the book will be especially helpful for those at the beginning of their ministry. Most importantly, he writes from his pastoral heart. His love for Jesus, the Word of God, and the church is evident on every page."" --Joseph Crider, Executive Director, Institute for Biblical Worship ""'Any sojourner would be wise to consult with a seasoned traveler who has already walked' the path. That's precisely what we have in A Guide to Worship Ministry by Gregory Brewton. It is a valuable and insightful account from one who has faithfully walked the road of worship ministry and now has answered the call to help the rest of us along the way."" --Mike Harland, Director, LifeWay Worship Resources Gregory B.
