Should Churches Hire Outside Musicians?

A few years ago, I was being interviewed for a worship leader position.  I was asked to share my opinion regarding churches hiring outside musicians to play for worship.  I told them that I’m all for it, when I’m the one being hired to play:-).  But, it really is a question that churches and worship leaders need to deal with.  So, I’d really like to hear from others on this.

Have you ever been “hired” to play for another church’s worship service?  Does your church pay outside musicians to play for worship or holiday services?  Is this something churches should be doing?  Why or why not?
