Real ministry faces real resistance. The enemy resists those who do not compromise on truth, as the truth sets people free. When you connect with sincere ministers, there is great blessing, but you are also in the same battle ground. It’s important to let God be the one to open doors. Please take all of the requirements seriously before affirming interest to immediately join. We will be working with sincere ministers. We are happy to hear from you even if not unto immediately joining.  As mentioned on the craigslist post, we have opportunity to help people grow who may not yet be ready for this project, and you are encouraged to contact me for details. Our goal is to Lead true worship of the true God.

 

Some things that may be new to you, but are very important:

  • A pure life results in a pure sound. We want a pure holy sound and pure holy presence. Those called to this team aren't using their gifts for music and venues that are contrary to Christ.

  • We sing and play through God and as unto God. This is not a show or competition. It is a holy abandonment of adoration with music as a resource. 

  • Ministering by the Spirit includes intentionally letting Him lead. The worship leader carries a great responsibility in facilitating this, but every member must cooperate. Often people strive by tradition, pattern, or even by emotional understanding to try to make something great happen in music ministry. We don’t want hype or man-planned production, we want Him to have His way in true worship from His Spirit to yours. We don’t want to bulldoze through a song, or emotionally strain to make something happen. We want to be intentionally sensitive to the leading of the Holy Spirit. If someone has a lifestyle of following the Holy Spirit, this will overflow into ministry. The fear of the Lord yields true discernment. Someone who already seeks God’s will in all things is well positioned to grow in being led by His Spirit. That's part of carrying our cross, "Thy will be done". He wants to lead, but we have to want to follow if we want it to be more vivid.

  • Not only must those involved respectfully follow the leading of God, and the leaders in ministry, but also must be very kind to others inside and outside of the team. 

  • This is a commitment. For those who serve on a worship team but don't stay faithful to come to services, or prepare for practice and worship services as the leaders asks of you, this will be too much for you to carry.

  • As mentioned on the link at the bottom of the other link you were just directed to, we are for unity in the body of Christ. We also celebrate that God receives all who come to Him, and makes us all one in Him. We are a racially diverse worship team. We are not trying to market a certain image. We want His presence. All ages are welcome.

  • We welcome a great variety of instrumentation to be considered.

 

Singers:

  • They already sing for God (even if not publicly). Their voices are dedicated for God's glory.

  • Able to listen well to others. This includes hearing and matching intricacies of melody, becoming as one voice when needed, and exhibiting your own voice when needed.

  • Able to harmonize without being so loud the lead line is not heard, and loud enough that your part is heard.

  • Willing to worship without the mic when it is not appropriate to amplify you at that moment in the system.

  • Able to sing on pitch consistently. 

 

Instrumentalists:

  • The use of their gifts is dedicated for God's glory. 

  • If a chordal player, the ability to read chord changes, or at least a willingness to really invest time to learn intricate details and voicing in the chords is required. For example, if two people play a Dmaj9 chord (D F# A C# E), the “C#”s and “D”s in that chord would have to be voiced well to not clash against another’s voicing. We have a large repertoire of music, so the ability to play chords on the spot is great for when we haven’t practiced a song much together.

  • Ability to play by ear at least to some extent. We are working with a skill level of people that include improvisation in their playing, so the person would need to have a good idea of where their fingers could go that would sound good. We don’t want to tell you exactly what to play all the time. Everyone has a unique sense of melody, and that can make great musical chemistry.

  • Ability to play diverse styles (pop, r&b, latin, etc)

  • Have own equipment. 

Our Experience as a Group has been for a couple of "Beautiful Jesus" events led by Dany Gelyana and "The Shift" led by Dr Dan Sherstad.
