Join Our Worship
Thank you for showing your interest in joining the worship team here at New Life Church. We are thrilled that you are interested in being a part of our team and are looking forward to seeing what God has planned for you.
Our mission as the worship ministry in New Life Church is to lead others into all-out, uncompromised worship of our God. We believe lives can be changed whenever there is an atmosphere of praise and worship.
You will find an application form below. The questions in the application form are meant to help us get to know you better. There are also certain expectations that will come with serving in this part of the church, as well as expectations in your spiritual life. Once you complete this application, one of the Worship Leaders will reach out to schedule an audition. The audition process is not intended to intimidate anyone, but instead to encourage believers to use their God-given gifts to fulfill their personal mission for Christ whether it be on the worship team or another ministry within the church.
We are all worship leaders on this team! One is expected to actively seek a deeper relationship with God by regularly reading/studying the Word, an existence of a prayer life, and the ability to pray for others in the church. A personal devotional time will help us lead others into the presence of God.
NLC Church Commitment
You must be a regular attendee of NLC while calling this your home. Regardless of being scheduled to serve on the worship team, you must still regularly attend with the rest of us! We encourage you to be a member of our church family and faithfully give financially through tithes and offerings to NLC.
A certain level of musical expertise and/or experience is expected on the worship team. We strive for excellence in our playing! That means that we really need to make a commitment to regularly listening to and practicing the music. We encourage musicians to never stop learning or growing. Taking lessons is a great way to grow. Do whatever it takes to continue your growth as a musician. Whether you play an instrument or sing, you should be skilled enough to complete a full set practice within a short time and to follow a service led by the Holy Spirit.
Come to rehearsals thinking creatively. We are all to be active participants in crafting songs so that they are enjoyable to play and powerful in the Holy Spirit. Our desire is to arrange songs in a way that worships God with creativity. While being creative is valued, playing together as a team is vital to the style of music we play.
For this worship team, we read our music via chord charts. You must be able to read and follow a standard chord chart and have a good grasp of the type of music that we play.
Instrumentalists are expected to have their own instruments (with the exception of drums and piano/keys). Guitarists must have their own amps and pedals, if necessary. If this may be an issue, please do not hesitate to contact Pastor Jose.
Time commitment is a major part of our team. Each person is expected to honor the time we have together. This means showing up early to be ready to practice at the time scheduled. Currently, we have Tuesday evening rehearsals at 6:30pm for the English service and 7:30pm for Spanish service. We also rehearse on Sunday mornings at 8:00am for English service and 12:30pm for Spanish service. Any other rehearsals will be made known in advance! If you are ever going to miss a rehearsal or you know ahead of time that you are going to be late, please inform Jose or Amanda as soon as possible. We must remain accountable to one another to be on time. Being on time honors everyone on the team. Your punctuality shows value to others and will help accomplish our common goals. Remaining accountable to one another builds our trust.
