VOCAL TEAM AND BAND OVERVIEW
TEAM COMMITMENT AND EXPECTATIONS
Our goal is to worship in Spirit and in Truth. Authenticity, passion, and excellence are at the core of what we do, and preparation, planning, and practice are the action steps that guide us to that place each week. Vocal team and band, therefore, require a certain level of commitment on various levels.
The following areas are vital within these teams:
Worship on the platform is the overflow of a lifestyle of worship. Worship on the platform should be in response to the personal spiritual intimacy with Jesus you have pursued throughout the other six days of the week. How can we lead people where we haven't gone ourselves?
Rehearsals are most beneficial when everyone has spent time with the music-listening, practicing, memorizing. For teamwork to happen effectively, we rely on each person to learn and play/sing their part accordingly. Anyone holding a mic must know how to hold their pitch in tune and be able to sing your part correctly. Instrumentalists must know how to tune your instrument and stay in tune while playing. Both vocal and band team members are required to wear In Ear Monitors while on the platform.
Keeping attitudes positive amidst complicated moments, whether technical, musical or otherwise, helps maintain healthy morale among the team. Be open to guidance from worship staff. Our desire is to help each member of the team reach their potential while worshipping with authenticity and excellence. Patience and humility benefit everyone.
Everyone’s time is valuable. Being on time for rehearsals allows them to run efficiently. Being on time communicates respect for the ministry, team, and the Lord. Promptly communicating delays is helpful.
The worship pastor and staff always try to give adequate notice of schedule or setlist changes. While it is not uncommon for these changes to take place, it is only done when necessary. Flexibility is key.
