Joining the Worship Team

We are beyond blessed that you are interested in serving Jesus with us.

Vision

We want everyone to know that we’ve been in the presence of the Lord during our worship times.

“Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were uneducated and untrained men, they marveled. And they realized they had been with Jesus.” -Acts 4:13

 

Leadership

We’re a team of volunteers that, by the grace of God, lead the Body and visitors in worship each Sunday.

I have been involved in music in some form for over 30 years. Starting out on saxophone in 4th grade and quickly switching to drums and now running sound. Sound fits me like a glove. From the love of music to understanding how a sound system works. I will always be involved in music somewhere!!

The Audition Process

Vocalists

STEP 1
*You’ll be assigned a song and provided a YouTube link, chord chart, and scratch track.

*Then you’ll have an informal audition with Pastor JB.

*Based upon that informal audition, you’ll move on to Step 2 or encouraged to continue working on your gift.

STEP 2
*You’ll be assigned a song and provided a YouTube link, chord chart, and scratch track.

*Then you’ll have a formal audition with the entire Worship Team at the beginning of a Thursday rehearsal.

*Based upon that informal audition, you’ll move on to Step 3 or encouraged to continue working on your gift.

STEP 3
*Everyone on our “stage team” that completes the auditioning process spends some time serving on our tech team in either the Pro Presenter or Light Tech position. This is an observation time. We want to be sure you will be faithful to come to rehearsals on time and that you feel comfortable with the team. We are observing faithfulness and good attitudes in a “behind the scenes” “not under the spotlight” position.
