In any area we use our God-given gifts and abilities, there are certain worship team requirements that help us excel under that particular role in the Body of Christ. We ask you to closely examine yourself to see if the Worship Ministry is the appropriate area in which to use your gifts.

A Personal Relationship with Jesus Christ

It is impossible for us to lead others in worship if we are not worshipers ourselves. Since Worship Team members provide an example of and create an atmosphere for worship, one must know Christ to participate. Leading worship is an outward expression of your inward impression of God.

Demonstrate a Life That Is Honoring to Jesus

Worship Team is a leadership-type ministry – not more important than other ministries, but certainly more visible. Because of this, we are more accountable in our life and behavior. We approach our ministry involvement as leaders, knowing that our way of life will be “considered by others.” This involves a commitment to being an example and a witness in your attitude, appearance, and behavior. (Ephesians 4:1 “As a prisoner for the Lord, then, I urge you to live a life worthy of the calling you have received.”)

If at any time during your worship ministry involvement, should you feel that your life is not reflecting well on Christ or His church, we ask that you voluntarily step down and remove yourself from ministry. At the same time, you must know that the Worship Pastor will not hesitate to ask you to step down in such situations if this action is deemed appropriate and necessary.

We do this for your benefit and encourage you to seek council with a member of the New Hope pastoral staff, lay pastors or any other wise and trusted believer in working to restore your fellowship with Christ, the Worship Ministry, and the church body. Our goal is restoration, not condemnation. We all go through times when we need to work through issues and find a place where we can be restored back into ministry, and everyone deserves support to do that.

Regularly Attend New Hope

You must be a faithful participant in the life of this congregation as demonstrated by your attendance and involvement, regularly attending worship gatherings and other church events. (Hebrews 10:2425 “And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds.

Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another – and all the more as you see the Day approaching.”) We further encourage you to consider membership with New Hope Church if you are not already an active member.

As one serving in ministry at New Hope Church, you also must support and be in general agreement with the New Hope Church Values, which is outlined at the end of this handbook.

Attend or Plan To Attend The Discover New Hope Classes

Being involved means knowing about the heart and soul of New Hope. A great way to learn more about New Hope (or just to review) is through New Hope Entrance to Membership classes that are offered every other month. We require all participants to plan to attend these classes within six months of joining the Praise Team.

Appropriate Musical or Technical Ability and Fit

As a Worship Team musician, vocalist, dancer, or technician, you need to be skilled and talented enough to follow along at the level of the other participants. In addition, you must be a good fit in style, blend, personality, and skills as determined by the Worship Pastor and the appropriate ministry leader. Here are some general guidelines:

Musicians need to be able to:

  • Perform well with others
  • Learn new material quickly

Faithfulness in Your Financial Commitment to the Church

Faithful financial giving is a leadership expectation at New Hope Church. It is a New Hope Church belief that stewardship is an outward sign of one’s trust in God.
