“Praise ye the Lord. I will praise the Lord with my whole heart, in the assembly of the upright, and in the congregation.”
The purpose of the Music Ministry is to exhort, uplift, and encourage the body of Christ through song and worship. The Music Ministry encompasses the Praise Team, adult choir, and youth choir. Members of the Music Ministry are faithful members of Vineyard of Grace. They strive to live according to God’s will and purpose and be on one accord in mind and heart according to the word of God.
Praise and Worship
A key component of the Music Ministry is the praise and worship portion of the service on Sunday mornings or other functions when called upon by the pastor. The significance of praise and worship is of profound importance in the lives of the children of God. The word praise is derived from a Latin word meaning value or price. Thus to give praise to God is to proclaim his merit and worth in the life of the individual who praises him. Proverbs 27:21 says as a refining pot for silver and a furnace for gold, so let a man be in his trial of praise, for a man is judged by what he praises and of what he boasts. (Amplified Bible)
Praises to God is one of the major themes of scripture. God has given us the responsibility and the privilege of proclaiming His righteousness with our mouth and hands and through music. The role music plays in developing and growing your ministry cannot be overstated. The worship experience is not only about hearing a message from a minister or learning a new interpretation of Scripture; a complete and fulfilling worship experience involves community-building, bonding and creating atmosphere through physical vibration as only music can
The Music Ministry is committed to facilitating worship, fellowship, encouragement and outreach through a balanced program of music that includes expressions ancient and modern, eloquent and simple, familiar and new. We strive to prepare gatherings for worship that are Christ-exalting, transformational, and display the unity of the Spirit. Corporate worship in our morning and evening services is enhanced through various musical ensembles that participate each Sunday. If you sing or play an instrument, we would love to have you join us. The choir enjoys being together in fellowship and take seriously its mission to prepare music that serves the church and honors the Lord. Discover the joy and privilege of giving your time and talent for that which is eternal to the glory of God.
The Ministry of Music is one of the most vital ministries in the local church and should be viewed as a sacred office. Discovering your call begins with a DESIRE to be used by God to impact the local church and the world around you. There are two words that will help you understand the call and vision God has for your music ministry.
Call: A divine appointment to ministry or service.
Vision: A supernatural revelation that conveys the plan and purpose of God.
