Description

Volume 1: Theology, Vision and Team Building

By Greg Cooper, Steve Crain, Andy Judd and Mark Peterson

You are a music director. Maybe you are paid a few days a week; probably you are doing this for the love. Either way, it’s a huge job. And it’s an important job – one which requires you to have your head around both the contentious theology of worship music, and the musical and relational challenges of building a team of creative people.
