Gathering regularly to worship the living God is integral to the life of a church. As churches we foster an atmosphere and heart of worship in our gatherings so that our lives are formed in the way of God’s kingdom.
Back when the church was still in its infancy, it developed a pattern when it gathered for worship (Gathering, Word, Response and Sending). This pattern was not meant to be a strict formula but rather a rhythm that reminds us of God’s story and intentions for us to be formed into mature worshiping followers of Christ. Below you will find some resources and ideas that may help you may find helpful in putting together you worship gatherings.
Do you have a healthy and robust process for introducing new songs to your church?
Do your worship services have a time of “response” when congregants are invited to individually and collectively respond to the message?

Worship Team Application

Worship Ministry Agreement
This is a sample ministry agreement. An agreement is intended to confirm the commitment of worship team members and the responsibilities they are signing on for. It’s a good idea to have team members sign annually. This offers the opportunity to reaffirm each ones commitment to the ministry. You and your church may have different expectations. If you decide to use an agreement, please feel free to use this as a template and edit as necessary.
