What is an effective corporate worship leader? This has been a question that Abin states he has asked various times as being a Praise and Worship Leader at New Life Bible Chapel. Before coming to NLBC, musical instruments were foreign to him. He became a member of this church approximately twelve years ago. He recalls coming to church and being led by a praise and worship team that included some very talented individuals who wanted to use their talents to glorify God. Being led by these individuals week after week initiated a desire to learn musical instruments. He went to the local music shop and picked up his first guitar at the age of fifteen and started taking lessons from a fellow church member. After years of growing in the Lord, His Word, prayer, and musical training, he became a Praise and Worship Leader at NLBC a few years ago. He states, "I always knew what an amazing opportunity, yet great responsibility such a position presented. I want to be an effective corporate worship leader, but wasn't always entirely sure of how to do so." Recently, he found a great definition of what an effective corporate worship leader is, which said, "An effective corporate worship leader, aided and led by the Holy Spirit, skillfully combines biblical truth with music to magnify the worth of God and the redemptive work of Jesus Christ, thereby motivating the gathered church to join him in proclaiming and cherishing the truth about God and seeking to live all of life for the glory of God." God's children are asked to sing to Him and He loves to hear them sing praises. Abin says, "My goal as a praise and worship leader is to, as the definition says, with the aid of the Holy Spirit, lead the congregation to focus on God and sing praises to Him for the love He bestowed upon us on the cross, while ensuring that each song portrays biblical truth. I truly hope to one day see you be amidst our congregation so that together we can glorify Him."
