 Engage book web button big

“One of the most important things you can do to keep the relationship healthy is to make a list of what you think is expected of you every week in order to get ready for the service.

Ask your pastor/worship pastor to the same. Then arrange a time to sit down together and talk through those lists. Make sure you both have clearly defined expectations for yourself and that you each know what you can expect from the other.” 

              – Nelson Searcy and Jason Hatley
