At some churches, anyone can be a part of the worship team – and that’s not a bad thing! But at some churches like OneLife, musicians are asked to audition first. If you’re from a background where anyone can be part of the worship team, you’re probably wondering why a church like OneLife would even have auditions? ”You can sing, right? Well come on you’re in!” That’s what we are used to hearing growing up in many churches, but here at OneLife we want to be intentional with who’s on our worship team and here’s why.
We believe God deserves our absolute best and excellence as a church and as individuals. Just like not everyone who likes to teach will be called to preach, not everyone who likes music is called to be a worship leader. And that’s what all of our musicians are – they are worship leaders. We strive for a distraction free environment and an easy place to worship, and that’s why hitting the right notes and singing the right words are – believe it or not – not what is most important to us. What’s most important to us is that we get the right people in their sweet spot of ministry, no matter where that may be. Not everyone will land a spot on the worship team but it will hopefully open your eyes to see where else in the church you may be being called to or somewhere else you would like to serve. And for others, you will find your sweet spot as a worship leader on our team.
Auditions for OneLife worship are coming up on March 20, next Tuesday night. If you’re interested and haven’t contacted firstname.lastname@example.org then do that today to get more information about what you’ll need to do. We’re excited for this next season of ministry and getting new musicians whose hearts are tied to OneLife Church and the kingdom.
So if you are a musician who goes to OneLife Church and wants to get involved, we would love to see what you got!
