At Sandals Church I was the Worship Pastor.
I oversaw everything in the Sunday morning service.
At Buckhead Church I was the Program Director.
I oversaw everything in the Sunday morning service.
From the service programming director position I was in more of a producer role.
The PRO was I saw everything from the view of the attender.
The CON was I only saw the backs of their heads and not their faces.
From the worship pastor position I was in a more of a leadership role.
The PRO was I saw everyone’s faces.
The CON was I did not see the room from the view of the attender.

These are two schools of thoughts.
One is that the person in charge should be able to produce the service from off stage.
The other is the person in charge should be able to feel the service from on stage.

How does your church handle this role and what do you think is the better way to run the Sunday Service?
Producer or Pastor?
