Spencer Cormany talks about the biggest mistake worship leaders can make: not understanding and defining their goal in worship leading. He emphasizes that every decision made during a corporate worship gathering should be based on a strong theological foundation. Spencer personally believes that the main purpose of corporate worship is twofold: to glorify God and edify believers. This core belief informs his decisions regarding song selection, transitions, and other elements in a service.
Spencer encourages viewers to think about their own beliefs about worship and ask themselves questions like, “What is the purpose of our corporate worship gathering?” and “What is my role in this gathering?” By seeking answers to these questions, worship leaders will be better prepared to lead their congregations effectively.
The video also offers resources for applying theological principles during worship gatherings, such as a free PDF containing five speaking transitions based on the Word of God. Overall, Spencer stresses the importance of having a solid theological foundation when leading corporate worship and making decisions that align with those beliefs.
