PRAISE AND WORSHIP TEAM

PRAISE AND WORSHIP TEAM

The Bible declares in Psalms 150: 1 Praise ye the LORD. Praise God in his sanctuary: praise him in the firmament of his power. 2 Praise him for his mighty acts: praise him according to his excellent greatness. 3 Praise him with the sound of the trumpet: praise him with the psaltery and harp. 4 Praise him with the timbrel and dance: praise him with stringed instruments and organs. 5 Praise him upon the loud cymbals: praise him upon the high sounding cymbals. 6 Let every thing that hath breath praise the LORD. Praise ye the LORD."

 

PURPOSE AND MISSION

It is our belief at kingdom faith fellowship Church that the Praise & Worship team is a vital part of the ministry and 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. The praise team at kingdom faith exists to support the presentation of the gospel message through song.

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.

The vision for the Worship Pastor and Senior Pastor is to maintain a musical program of excellence. We desire to have a praise/worship team, including singers and musicians, choirs for special performances, dramas, and live recordings of praise/worship. Special programs for younger children will also be available at times.

 

GENERAL GUIDELINES

Calling

  • It is very important for those who participate in the Praise Team to feel that they are “called, appointed, and anointed” to the ministry at hand.
  • Lifestyle - Participants must be born-again believers of Christ, and their lifestyle must resemble that of a born-again Christian.
  • Participants must be worshipers on and off the platform. Anyone who has difficulty worshiping privately or publicly is not ready to be a leader.

 

Talent and Skill

Although we recognize the importance of a pure heart, the musician and vocalists also need to have enough skill so that they can follow the Holy Spirit. Musicians and vocalists should have open hearts to receive advice, correction, training, and should be committed to becoming proficiently skilled at their ministry. “Kenaniah the head Levite was in charge of the singing; that was his responsibility because he was skillful at it”. (1 Chronicles 15:22)  One does not need to be a professional musician to worship the Lord, but God honors the discipline of additional practice and preparation. “Failing to prepare is preparing for failure.”

 

Commitment

  • Praise Team members should be actively involved at kingdom faith and dedicated to the church's vision and to the leadership of its pastors and other leaders. This commitment includes their prayers, regular attendance, and tithes/offerings.
  • Those who commit to serving on the praise team are asked to commit to weekly rehearsals and they are expected to do their best to make sure other commitments do not interfere with their ability to serve on the Praise Team on a weekly basis.
  • Because we value the importance of family, prospective praise team members should not join the team without the full support of their family.

 

Attendance and Punctuality

  • Attendance and punctuality are very important factors for being a member of the music team.
  • Weekly rehearsals are required, and members should arrive ready to work on the designated material.
  • Poor attendance and showing up late for rehearsals demonstrate a lack of discipline and respect for the Lord’s ministry are grounds for dismissal.
  • Those who are unable to attend rehearsals should not expect to participate in the praise team the following Sunday unless prior arrangements with the worship pastor have been made

 

The kingdom Faith Praise Team is a unique group of individuals Who Use their God-given talents to glorify the Lord.
