“Mere talents do not give glory to God but a humble heart.” Mac Canoza
• Vibrant, Relevant & Passionate Worship. Responding to God’s Grace through the Music Ministry.
• It is not about us.
• Our purpose is to humbly take those we are leading, the body, into the Throne Room of God in Worship.
• A heart of humility and selfless service is needed.
• The ministry of the worship team is not about showcasing one’s talents or drawing attention to one’s self.
• It is about leading others in worshiping the LORD.
• This is a high and holy calling.
• Participation in the worship team is a privilege granted to the faithful, not a right based upon human talent.
The worship team exists to use their vocal, instrumental and technical abilities to:
• Exalt and magnify the LORD, not themselves.
• Edify and encourage God’s PEOPLE to worship the LORD.
• Prepare hearts to respond obediently to the proclamation of God’s Word.
• Each team member must possess and continually cultivate a Christ Like attitude of humility & servanthood (Phil. 2:3-5).
This essential attitude of humility will reflect itself in a spirit of:
• Reverence towards God.
• Respect and submission towards those who lead.
• Co-operation and support towards fellow team members.
• Readiness to serve God when called upon.
