The Worship Leader as Psalmist

2013 Austin Stone Worship Conference

In this 12-minute session from the Austin Stone Worship Conference, Robbie Seay calls worship leaders and songwriters to be modern day psalmists, encouraging them to lead and write out of an overflow of their life experiences. Robbie sings and writes  with The Robbie Seay Band, an accomplished contemporary worship band. He is also Worship Pastor at Bayou City Fellowship in Cypress, TX.

Robbie's study of Psalms has had a deep impact on how he writes and ministers in song. Spend some time, reading, praying, and singing through the Psalms, considering how you can grow as a psalmist.
