Hope this Helps: “The Worship Pastor” by Zac Hicks
Zac Hicks – a friend of Rooted, and the Canon for Liturgy and Worship at the Cathedral Church of the Advent in Birmingham – recently published his first book, The Worship Pastor (Zondervan). Zac’s book is a fabulous resource and guide for student leaders (since many of you also lead worship), in what gospel-centered worship looks like. We cannot recommend this book enough! Expect to hear more from Zac on Rooted in the future.
Here’s what the publisher has to say about The Worship Pastor:
Modern worship leaders are restless. They have inherited a model of leadership that equates leading worship with being a rock star. But leading worship is more than a performance, it’s about shaping souls and making disciples. Every worship leader is really a pastor. The Worship Pastor is a practical and biblical introduction to this essential pastoral role. Filled with engaging, illustrative stories it is organized to address questions of theory and practice, striving to balance conversational accessibility with informed instruction. It is meant to be read by pastors, worship leaders, worship teams, and anyone else interested in deepening their understanding and experience of worship.
