Four Faces of Worship
with Zach Neese
It’s been said that if we want to see the things of heaven on earth, we have to do the things of heaven on earth. If that is the case, then it’s a good idea to learn what we can from Biblical references of worship around the throne of God. This breakout will dig in to see what we can learn about worship leading from the four “Creatures” in Revelation Chapter 4. How do I understand and utilize my God given gifts to pastor others in God’s presence? And how can I be more considerate of my weaknesses and the differences to avoid causing harm? This class is an eye-opening look into how our worship leadership can better help our people see, know, and love Jesus more.
