I am so glad that you have taken interest in the worship ministries here at Life Center Church. Our desire is to find those who are equipped with the skills necessary as well as the desire to commit the time and energy needed to lead our people into worship each week.
While we recognize that in our context, we are focusing on the musical aspect of worship, we need to be clear that worship is so much more than just leading some songs on a Sunday morning. Worship, at its heart, is about our lifestyle.
Romans 12:1 says this…
“And so, dear brothers and sisters, I plead with you to give your bodies to God because of all he has done for you. Let them be living and holy sacrifices-the kind he will find acceptable. This is truly the way to worship Him.” (NLT)
I mention this because I think it is important for you to understand that we are not just looking for good vocalist or musicians. We are looking for those who are also passionate about developing a heart for worship.
John 4:23-24 tells us what God is looking for in a worshipper…
“But the time is coming- indeed it is here now- when true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and in truth. The Father is looking for those who will worship him that way. For God is Spirit, so those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth.” (NLT)
God desires worship that comes from a place of truth and from the deepest part of who we are. That is our desire also. We want to be sure that those who are leading worship from the platform are also leading worship in their everyday lives. We believe that the heart is more important than talent or skill.
Now, with that said, we also believe in holding to a high standard of excellence. In order to LEAD musical worship effectively and truly help the congregation engage, skill and talent must be a key factor when deciding who will be a good fit for the worship ministry.
The first step to get involved in the worship ministry is to complete the Worship Team Application. This will give us some general information about you and where you would like to be involved.
The next step would be to come to one of our scheduled auditions. These will be live auditions with members of the existing team. You will be given a few songs to prepare (either vocally or instrumentally) and will sing/play within the context of the worship team. (don’t worry, it will be pretty laid back and will hopefully be a lot of fun!)
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me! Again, thank you for your interest in serving here at Life Center Church.
