A Worship Pastor usually refers to a person in some Christian churches, largely in North America, who ministers within the church via music performance, as well as counseling and pastoring members of the church's music team.[1][2]

This is a distinct role within a church, that contains elements of, and overlaps with some of the roles of a church music director and pastor, while being neither. Usually a worship pastor will also be considered a worship leader of the church with the added responsibilities of caring for members of a team, including other worship leaders.
