How do you identify musicians, develop them, and prepare them to lead? 

How to Introduce "Is He Worthy?"

Leadership

I'll admit it. When I first heard "Is He Worthy?" I didn't get it. How do you introduce a song in worship that begins with a question? Didn't we move on from call and response songs after "Hail hail, Lion of Judah"?
