10 Questions With: Darlene Zschech
- Tuesday, June 17, 2003
Songs4Worship.com: Years from now, what do you most want people to remember about your contribution to the world of worship?
Zschech: I would love to be known as someone who helped put value back into praise & worship. I know I'm one of many, many, many who do this, but I would love to be known as someone who helped.
Songs4Worship.com: You are one of many, but you're also one of a handful of women who've reached this level of success. Why do you think that is?
Zschech: I really don't know. It bamboozles me. But I am aware of the responsibility, possibly because I know where I've come from. I'm just like anybody else...and I try to communicate that when I'm leading people, saying, "Hey, if I can do this, you can do this." This is not for the extremely gifted, talented or beautiful. Worship is inclusive [and] I try and make it available to everybody. If I make it too clever or too technically brilliant, it excludes most of the people we're trying to serve.
Songs4Worship.com: There's a lot of talk today about where we're veering off course in terms of worship, but what do you think we're doing right?
Zschech: Putting value on it again. I think God must get so excited because it's been his heart always and there were a couple generations where worship was just plundered, we just didn't have it. So I think over the next 10 years we're gonna hear amazing Heaven music that is prophetic as far as cutting edge, not being shaped by the trend, but setting the trend. Because once you tap into Heaven, it must. There will be the new Handel's Messiah, the new works of worship like we've never seen before.
