Remember when your worship leader was a guy named “Matt” or “Scott” and he had a normal looking guitar and wore normal looking pants and had less product in his hair than your wife? That happened right? I mean, I didn’t make that up, right? It’s hard to be certain though given how hip we’ve asked our worship leaders to be. Whether it’s hair that juts out in geometrical angles that give the middle finger to gravity or designer jeans or graphic tee’s over graphic tee’s over graphic tee’s over tattoos, there’s no denying things have changed. But you know what? I like it. I like that we’re recruiting people that are loud and passionate and creative about what they do. I will forever make fun of the worship leader that recently wore only a t-shirt and a scarf on stage, but I love what they do and whether they want to be hip or not is cool with me.
