The true heart of worship manifests when we behold the glory of Christ. When we worship, we proclaim the amazing gospel of the grace of God and we cherish his presence with songs of praise and affirmation of truth. When we experience this kind of worship, we inevitably long for more of it, because the true worship of the true God nourishes the soul. And since true worship inspires hearts after God, in it we discover a fresh desire and resolve to submit our lives to Him through glad-hearted obedience. At Glory of Christ, we seek to cultivate a vibrant lifestyle of worship in our church, our community groups, our various ministries, and our personal lives before God.
Our desire for the Worship Ministries at Glory of Christ is not simply to provide moving experiences but to enter into life-shaping encounters with God. Every worship event should move every soul to seek hard after God and ultimately submit their lives to him. Of course, we cannot control the outcomes of our common ministry, and yet it should be of such a quality that the potential for every soul to be transformed is there. And that potential is simply the fruit of hearts that strive by the strength of Christ to exalt the glory of God in the eyes of his people that they might see, sing, seek, and submit to him.
If you have musical gifts, or a more general passion for worship ministries, and would like to be involved, here are the steps you should take:
1. Pray and ask the Lord to help you discern how he would like you to use your gifts for his glory, the good of others, and your joy. Seek to discern the Lord’s answer to this question: How will using your gifts at this church both glorify Him and edify the church?
2. After praying, contact Pastor Charlie or Jesse Daas to set up an initial interview. In that interview, please be prepared to share your vision and passion for worship, your specific skills, your past involvements, and your hopes for the future.
3. If after this interview it seems good and right to go forward, you will be asked to fill out an application for the worship ministries and audition your skills. Once the application is submitted and the audition is complete, our team will pray and determine where you might best fit into the worship ministries of the church.
After this process is complete, we will set up a final appointment wherein we will inform you of our decisions and help you plug into the life of the church whether that's in worship ministry or elsewhere. We trust that the Lord will reveal his will through this simple process and help us all to glorify his name together!
