“For you shall go out with joy and be led forth with peace: the mountains and the hills shall break forth before you into singing, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands.” (Isaiah 55:12 NIV)

The role of a church musician is often little understood, but yet is vital to the worship experience. Imagine for a moment entering a church sanctuary and hearing silence on a Sunday morning. Imagine no organ, no piano, no singing, no guitar … nothing … no music at all. The void of music would be deafening. Worshipers would feel uncomfortable worshiping without music to enrich the worship experience.
