Short-version of Guidelines in red
A heart-felt desire or call to this ministry is absolutely # 1. If your
desire is strong enough and your call genuine, it will carry you through the
challenges and the training that will be a part of this ministry.
Having this should be obvious
Obviously, a person who has the desire to be a part of the
Worship Ministry Team must also have musical abilities in some measure
to carry out their desired position in this ministry. The level of that ability is
to be determined by the head of the Creative Arts ministry of Harvest
Church; Pastor Treva. If a person is not at the level needed to begin in the
ministry, but is willing to pursue training in that area to come up to the
desired level, they will certainly be encouraged to do so.
Some level of experience with an instrument OR singing that goes beyond ‘beginner’ stage.
Attitude will ‘over-ride’ Ability in every situation. Attitude
affects the entire TEAM and also the atmosphere of the service. Our true
motives are revealed when our ‘attitudes’ show themselves in a selfish,
prideful or rebellious manner. The ability to handle correction or
instruction in a Christ-like manner is an opportunity to grow for everyone
Attitude is a ‘heart indicator’ and is seen more than your ability
Those desiring to join the Worship Ministry in some area;
band, choir, tech or camera, must be able to attend rehearsals and
services when they are scheduled. If this will be a problem, you need to
wait until your schedule will permit you to be a part.
Has to be a commitment not a ‘good intention’
As a Covenant member of Harvest Church and a part
of the Worship Ministry Team, you are accountable to the head of that
ministry and to Harvest Church to represent Jesus Christ and your church
family with a lifestyle that is an example to others of your relationship to
God. If you are not already a part of Harvest Church, attending our 101
class offered in the July and January should be your first step. This will
not prohibit you from starting the process of joining the Ministry Team but it
will be expected that you will complete this at the first opportunity.
WHO you are in public and here at church speaks LOUDER than how you ‘play’ or ‘sing’.
