Aaron Keyes has been a worship pastor for over 20 years, currently serving as the worship pastor at New Life Church in Colorado Springs, CO. Aaron is also the founder of Mere Worship , a network of worship pastors who are reimagining Christian worship, and the founder and director of 10,000 Fathers , a discipleship-orientated worship school. In this episode, we talk about all kinds of things related to Christian worship and worship leading, including the difference between subjective and objective oriented songs, the need for character in a worship pastor, why musical talent alone is insufficient in a worship leader and how it can even be destructive, “Jesus is my boyfriend” type songs, and some potential problems with the CCLI industrial complex.
