Josh Ferris shares some advice on getting hired as a worship pastor. This first post focuses on one of the most important things about leading worship – knowing your theology:

While churches probably won’t expect you to be their top theologian, you will definitely be put in situations that require you to accurately articulate biblical concepts. Something as simple as the language of your prayer can speak volumes about your understanding of God. Not only do you need a position on key theological issues, you need to be able to support that position from scripture and clearly explain it.
