|Synopsis: The music ministry of a church is important for the entire congregation. For the unsaved, it sets the mood for them to hear the gospel and receive the gift of salvation. For the newly saved, it should be exciting enough to awaken them to hear the Word of God for instruction. For the more mature, it sets the mood for praise and worship of the Lord. While the right music cannot save a dead service, the wrong music could seriously injure a living one. The music can be either a vitamin or a tranquilizer.|

The LeadershipThe pastor of the church is the pastor of the music.
He is responsible to see that the proper music is played and sung. No music
should be performed in the church that has not been approved by the pastor. This
aside, the music minister should have general control and liberty of the music.
The pastor retains his veto power. The music minister should make it his goal to
lead the congregation into worship while staying within the bounds that the
pastor has instructed.
The pastor should go through the songbook and make notations on the various hymns that are to be sung. This will assist the music minister in his selection of music and should prevent the selection of hymns that are not Scriptural. The song leader should keep track of which music is used in each service. This will prevent the over or under use of songs.
