Jazz and Worship: Pastor and Musicians Create Together
An example of team effort: Musician Brian Scarborough and Pastor Tyler Kauffman relate ideas and experience of their “Underground Community,” a weekly evening worship jazz service (trombone, guitar, bass, drums and guest musicians) developed for Lenexa United Methodist Church. Brian and Pastor Tyler work together, discussing each week’s topics, quotations, and photographs to unify the service. Brian also writes music for the service drawing on influences of jazz, folk, world music, and improvisation to balance a high level of music with intriguing topics and conversation in the service.
