Does age matter in Worship Leading? Older worship leaders would say no, but younger ones would say, or at least imply a firm yes!
So Does Age Matter in Worship Leading?
Our modern culture celebrates youth and often mistreats age, unlike many cultures around the world where age is respected and celebrated.
Especially when it comes to music or anything to do with worship leading?
Now please understand, I am all for bringing younger worship leaders through and training and encouraging them. That’s the reason we started the Worship Leader Academy… so that we could train worship leaders and bring years of experience to them, and save them from making the mistakes we have made in the past.
Does age matter when it comes to worshipping the Lord? Of course, it doesn’t! Here’s a news flash for all of us, young and old…. we will all join together and worship the Lord in Heaven forever. In that day, does age matter for worship? Definitely not, because we will all be in our prime of life forever with the Lord, worshipping constantly and enjoying His presence forever!
So does age matter to the Lord? I don’t believe so, I mean look at the likes of Caleb, Joshua, and Moses. Clearly, He loves and uses aged as well as young people.
Does age matter for musicians? Again I would say no because some of the greatest musicians and singers of all time are now old and still celebrated. I just saw a 70-year-old Paul McCartney perform wonderfully, so I don’t even think the secular world is as obsessed with age as some Christian churches.
So, does age matter in worship leading? Well, listen to today’s podcast and decide for yourself, but we would argue that age can add something wonderful and powerful to worship leading and that the experiences and wisdom of aged worship leaders is a valid and important thing to bring to the team!
Are you too old to lead worship? Well, you may not think so, but increasingly we are getting loads of people emailing us saying that they are being told that they are too old to lead worship. Pastors are being told that they need young, hip and groovy worship leaders, and you might be wondering what an older person can bring to the table that maybe a young one cannot.
No matter your age, you should be able to offer something unique as a worship leader. Whether your church recognizes your value as a worship leader or not, this encouraging and important worship leader podcast will give you a real ray of hope for your ministry.
