WORSHIP TEAM AUDITION
Prayerfully consider your involvement. There is a certain level of preparation, planning, and practice that goes into each worship service. Because of this, there is a certain level of commitment that is required from the worship team. This commitment can take on many forms. Here are a few areas where level of commitment is most evident.
+ Spiritual Preparation
Worship on a platform is the overflow of a lifestyle of worship and a heart that is well-cultivated throughout the week. Therefore, members must continually through prayer and example be pure of heart before God and others. Membership on the Worship Team is a position of leadership. Our primary function is to lead the congregation into true worship - not to perform.
+ Musical Preparation
As a part of The Harbor, the Worship Team is to maintain a spirit of excellence. Rehearsals are infinitely smoother when everyone has listened to, practiced with and memorized the scheduled music. For teamwork to happen effectively, we rely on you to play your part accordingly.
When ideas or suggestions are presented and received with a good attitude, the result is a cohesive and functional team. Be open to the constructive criticism and encouragement of the worship leader or band leader. They are trying to pull out the greatness in you, so be patient and receptive of constructive feedback.
Everyone’s time is valuable. It’s important that everyone be punctual for rehearsals so that we can use our limited time as efficiently as possible. Arriving early is always a great idea. But, when unforeseen situations arise, we understand. Just be sure to communicate any scheduling conflicts or unexpected tardiness as soon as possible.
The worship pastor/leader always tries to give adequate notice of schedule or set list changes. While it is not uncommon for these changes to take place, it is only done when necessary. It is recommended that you periodically check back with Planning Center to view any potential changes.
