Praise and Worship Team Ministry
THE PRAISE AND WORSHIP TEAM MINISTRY MISSION STATEMENT
It is our belief at the Praise Zone (Kirkland Memorial 2nd Church of God in Christ) that the Praise & Worship team is a vital part to the ministry of this body of believers. Members should view their function as ministers of the gospel through music and song. Those who serve on the Praise & Worship Team, therefore, should view their role as a calling from God.
Membership on the Praise Team (in any way) is a position of Christian leadership. The primary function, then, is to lead the congregation in true worship under the guidance of the Holy Spirit. “God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship Him in spirit and in truth”. (John 4:24) We emphasize that our purpose and calling is that of leading others into the very presence of the Living God. There is no calling issued for “performances” and “showmanship” – - only true praise and worship. Therefore, members must strive continually through prayer and example to have a pure heart before God and others.
It is our mission as overseers of the praise and worship ministry to: be wise stewards in the careful and gracious utilization of the musical gifts with which God has blessed our congregation have an aesthetic sensibility in choosing music that is the best we can offer in terms of what is appropriate for praise and worship, and in terms of matching individual and team talents to musical style selections, whether they be classical southern gospel, traditional gospel, or contemporary gospel.
