Worship is an incredibly important aspect of the modern church. It's a time when people can lose themselves completely in the music, essentially let everything in their lives go, and focus completely on God. Worship, then, serves as a means to alignment with the Heavenly Father, so to lead worship is to act as a conduit in that alignment.
Worship Music has its very own culture, one that must be experienced first hand if it's to be understood and appreciated. To a mainstream musician, the simple song structures and lyrical content are often times misconstrued as a lack of creativity or musicality - in reality, though, the simplicity is often times by design. Yes, the song structures and lyrics can be quite simple, but they're intended to be so that they're accessible to anyone and everyone. Unlike Mainstream Music, which is self-contained in its meaning, Worship Music has a much loftier purpose; it's a vehicle to connect with God.
I currently lead Worship with the band, SMPLCTY, at Simplicity Church OKC, a new church plant in Oklahoma City that meets in historic Automobile Ally.
