When considering hiring a worship leader, ask if the extended family is supportive. If the new position requires a move for the worship leader, it may take him and his family away from in-laws.
Most parents want their children and grandchildren to live within a short drive from family. However, God may be calling the worship leader and his family to move.
PASTORS: Be sure to ask if the extended family is supportive. Talk about it with prospective leaders.
PARENTS of GROWN CHILDREN: Give counsel, but let your children go to regions to pursue the calling God has on their life to serve.
ADULT CHILDREN: Help educate your parents. Let them know your heart. Keep communicating with them about your vision and your calling.
Letting go is not easy, but necessary for Kingdom work.
