I am wondering if any of you out there have a spouse where you serve together on the worship team. Do share the leadership equally, or does one hold more authority than the other? What advice do you have for people who might be in a similar situation?
Here's a little more detail:
My wife and I are both musicians. Currently, I hold the title of worship leader and she plays in the band. I am wondering what challenges there might be if we were to change that to be where she has equal authority as worship leader, picking songs, deciding how the arrangements will sound, etc. She is very talented and bright but we do have slightly different artistic taste at times, and she feels really insecure when I don't see it her way. If I was better at making her feel validated, she wouldn't feel so insecure, but I am still rough around the edges. It's not that she wants the recognition, she just wants to feel validated. We haven't discussed this with the church leadership yet. I am not sure if they will have a problem with that or not. I don't think they will. I am curious to know what advice other worship leader couples might have for us.
