We’re thrilled you’re considering being a part of the Worship Arts ministry at Real Life! Discerning where God is calling you to serve as a member of His Church is an exciting and important time.
Worship Arts staff and volunteers are responsible for all creative elements that take place during our weekend worship services. As a ministry, our vision is “Roadways, Not Roadblocks.” By this phrase, we aim to communicate our desire to facilitate an environment where we and others can give praise to and experience the presence of the eternal God as a church body. We pursue excellence, but not for excellence’s sake. We work to develop individual crafts in order to be conduits for Christ so that others may come to know and grow in Him.
We take this charge from various places in scripture (Matthew 7:13-14, 21:12-17, 23:13, Isaiah 40, John 1), but maybe most clearly from the example of John the Baptist. When questioned who he was and what he was trying to accomplish, John quickly diverted any acclaim to his own name and answered with the words of Isaiah saying “I am the voice of one calling in the wilderness, ‘Make straight the way for the Lord.”
The Worship Arts ministry is comprised of two teams that partner together harmoniously to accomplish this tall task on a weekly basis. Our Platform Team (often called a praise or worship band at many churches) is responsible for the music being played on the platform and our Production Team (sometimes called a tech team) is responsible for the execution of Audio Engineering, Video, Lighting (and pretty much everything else that happens in-house or online).
