335- Spiritual Accountability

Accountability is a huge part of being in a team, and even when you are the worship leader, accountability is essential.

Accountability Improves your Ability

Worship leaders need to be accountable to their pastors, their oversight and even their team members.

When you move into a leadership position, submission to those who are directing you is a very important part of your leadership.

Many people want to have the top job… they want to control their own decisions and be the master of their own destiny. However, even the guys at the top need to be accountable.

Open your Bible and you will see accountability all the way through.  From David to Nehemiah, from Peter to Paul, successful leaders are accountable!  Unsuccessful leaders, people like King Saul and Samson, often had a real issue with accountability, so there is a lesson in there for all of us!

In this pod, we discuss who you should be accountable to and why.  the guys share their own stories and reveal some of the horror stories they have built over many years regarding the inability to be accountable to those in authority over them.

We also reveal that the best way to grow your ministry is to be accountable to someone else.  In fact, the best way to grow your ministry is to make yourself a servant to someone else’s ministry.  The more you serve them, amazingly the Lord opens up and starts to increase your ministry!  After all,

Psalm 127:1 (ESV)

Unless the Lord builds the house,
    those who build it labor in vain.
Unless the Lord watches over the city,
    the watchman stays awake in vain.

So don’t try and build your ministry in vain!  As you make yourself accountable, God will build something supernatural and awesome.  Just serve, be accountable and watch Him do what He wants to do in your life and ministry!

Finally, worship leaders, do not be frightened by accountability, but step up and submit to your oversight. It will serve you well, increase your effectiveness in ministry and make life a whole lot sweeter as you serve the Lord!
