If you were to isolate the greatest challenges that face music ministries in the 21st century, at the top of the list would be the challenge of leading different generations to worship God together.
Some ministries split services. Some adjust style to fit newer models. Others want to hold to only older songs.
I had the privilege of sitting down with Zach Young, Pastor of Music and Worship at First Baptist Church in Jackson, TN. We discussed his unique perspective on leading multi-generational worship.
We covered the place of musical style in congregational singing, tips for gauging singability, and song themes that connect with all generations.
So, I’m excited to share with you our second interview with effective music pastors!
Zach has been in Jackson for about six months, after several years in Lebanon, TN. He’s an organ guy, and has a heart for leading his church in congregational worship. I enjoyed catching up with Zach, and I know you will get some valuable help here.
So, set aside the piles of music on your desk, grab your coffee, and join us for a talk with Zach Young. It might not be what you expect.
