Music leaders play a key role within faith-based communities as they help to shape the culture and spirituality of those communities. Despite functioning in said faith-based environments where the spiritual well-being of the community is of the utmost importance, music leaders often neglect to tend to their personal spirituality. Much has been researched and written about the personal experience and spirituality of spiritual leaders (pastors) of faith-based communities yet there is a dearth of research relating to the experience of music leaders. The purpose of this study is to explore and describe the experience of their (music leaders’) personal spirituality. Furthermore, how to develop guidelines to assist music leaders in integrating their personal spirituality into their role as music leaders.
