Remember the days when worship leaders used to take photos of themselves arriving at an airport, eating a pre-flight meal and then sound checking, before getting the film developed and showing the prints to all their friends?  

Or how about the times when worship leaders used to stand on top of their car in the car park after the service and shout wildly about how amazing the worship was, telling everyone within earshot how it ‘went off!’

Or what about the worship leaders who used to go around asking strangers to tell others how much they liked their songs? 

Nope, me neither. And yet all of the above behaviour can be seen in action today, thanks to social media.

Should we be concerned? Is all this new connectivity bringing out the worst in us? Should we steer clear?

Or maybe things have simply changed. People have always shared and talked and liked and laughed out loud, and social media is just another way of doing it. In fact, you might suggest that social media has a vital part to play in spreading worship worldwide.  What could be wrong with that?

What are your boundaries? Are there things that - as a worship leader - you don’t tweet about? What kind of behaviour makes you want to unfollow someone? And who does it well?
