Call to Worship – Definition

A call to worship is directed to the people by God through the worship leader.  It is an act that brings the worshiping community into being.  The call to worship is directed toward the people.  It is a call to focus mind, heart and intention on the worship of God.  Therefore, it is brief and emotive, not lengthy and intellectual.
