1. Committed regular attendee of Immanuel Church 

2. Musical/Technical Competency

The privilege to lead our church into worship is not a casual hobby, but a focused and intentional craft. Musicians and singers need to be proficient and practiced, with a level of competency that will enhance the atmosphere on the stage. All teammates must be prepared to develop, extend, and fine-tune their gifts.

3. Support of Family 

It is important that your immediate family is aware of the time commitments necessary, and that they are accepting and supportive of your ministry efforts. 

4. Living by Biblical Principles/Standards 

To serve on an elevated platform is an honor and a responsibility to be stewarded seriously, and also guarded mindfully. The mantle of responsibility is not something we take lightly, and we place a heavy emphasis on the position of our team member's hearts. Some examples of BIblical standards we uphold are as follows: 

  • A deep connection with Jesus, through prayer and study of His word
  • Rooted, healthy relationships with Immanuel Church and members of the worship team 
  • Regular attendance to Immanuel Church services (Not only when serving) 
  • Respect and honor existing leaders, processes, and systems 
  • Alignment with the vision and culture of not only our worship team, but Immanuel church and our Pastors 
  • Social media presence that emphasizes a spirit of joy, leadership and authenticity. Social media can be subjective, and as it is our job to usher people into worship during services, social media posts should draw viewers closer to Jesus, not further away
  • No gossip or slander about leaders or other team members 
  • No causing division within the team 
  • No drug or alcohol abuse 
  • No sexual misconduct (Including but not limited to extramarital sexual activity, pornography, living with a significant other, sexual harassment, overly sexualized clothing)
  1. I trust in Jesus Christ alone for salvation and the forgiveness of my sins. 
  2. I agree to uphold and be held under Immanuel Church's doctrinal statement. 
  3. I agree to attend faithfully and engage with the Immanuel Church family regularly. 
  4. I agree to continually develop the abilities God has given me. 
  5. I commit to personal private worship, prayer, and reading of the Bible. 
  6. I commit to an attitude of forgiveness and grace towards others in my words and actions, as well as following the principles set forth in Matthew 18:15-17, refraining from gossip or slander of any kind. 

1. Being Prepared 

  • Music will be sent out early in the week. Review and become familiar with the songs before practice on Wednesday night. 
  • Any vocal or instrumental leads will be communicated to you early in the week. Please have these practiced and ready for Wednesday night's rehearsal. 
  • Punctuality - Please arrive to practices and run-throughs early enough to be set up and ready to start at the scheduled time. Not showing or coming late affects the whole team and the effectiveness of rehearsals. 
  • Be ready to start at the beginning of rehearsals.
  • Setup, warmup, and tune prior to the start of rehearsal/run-through.
  • Make sure you are set with in-ear monitors and microphones prior to the start of rehearsal/run-through.

2. Proper Stage Posture 

  • Come with your heart prepared, just as much as you are prepared musically. Be authentic and transparent. 
  • Dress modestly and humbly. Our purpose is to lead the congregation into worship, not draw attention to ourselves. 

3. Commitment to musical/technical expertise - Excellence honors God 

Excellence honors God and inspires people. We want to do both as we lead people in worship. To achieve musical and technical excellence, we need to work on our instrumental, vocal, or technical ability to become the very best we can be. This includes individual practice as well as playing with the team, and individual lessons. The team will only be as proficient as the individuals it is composed of. 

4. Over-communicate 

  • Use elvanto to accept and decline scheduled dates 
  • If you need to cancel, please provide at least one week's notice prior to the rehearsal by emailing Chris at chris@immanuel.cc
  • No need to find yourself a replacement
