10 Powerful Insights About Praise and Worship
Massive responsibility rests on the shoulders of every Praise and Worship leader across the globe because God’s presence in a church meeting depends on it and the destinies of church members depends on it. If worship is done in such a way that God does not show up and minister in a meeting, someone on the brink of disaster or tragedy will leave church the same way they came and that becomes a missed opportunity for them to receive from God.
