There are many compelling reasons for us to utilize creativity in our worship services. The most obvious—and least surprising—is that we are fashioned in the image of God. Creativity is one of God’s foundational attributes—both in His formation of the universe and in the way He guides His people and strategizes against the enemy. No doubt, He is always doing a new thing.
Let’s see if we can put our finger on some of the reasons why. Have you ever felt complacent in your relationship with God? Have you ever found yourself slipping into robotic worship mode on a Sunday morning? As a leader, have you ever struggled with losing the heart behind singing songs in church?
