There are many opportunities to serve with the HC Worship Team. We are always looking for vocalists, musicians, and artists to work with our team. If you are interested in learning more about opportunities with the HC Worship Team contact Executive Pastor Jeremy Davidson at jeremy@harrahchurch.org.

Guidelines and Requirements
Calling

  • It is very important for those who participate in the worship team to feel that they are “called, appointed, and anointed” to the ministry at hand.

Lifestyle

  • Participants must be born-again believers of Christ, and their lifestyle must resemble that of a born-again Christian.
  • Participants must be worshipers on and off the platform. Anyone who has difficulty worshiping at home or in the congregation is not ready to be a worship leader.

Talent and Skill

Although we recognize the importance of a pure heart, the musician and vocalists also need to have enough skill so that they can follow the Holy Spirit. Musicians and vocalists should have open hearts to receive advice, correction, training, and should be committed to becoming proficiently skilled at their ministry. “Kenaniah the head Levite was in charge of the singing; that was his responsibility because he was skillful at it”. (1 Chronicles 15:22) One does not need to be a professional musician to worship the Lord, but God honors the discipline of additional practice and preparation. “Failing to prepare is preparing for failure.”

Commitment

Worship team members should be actively involved at Harrah Church and dedicated to Harrah Church’s vision and to the leadership of its pastors and other leaders. This commitment includes their prayers, regular attendance, and tithes/offerings.
Those who commit to serving on the HC Worship Team are asked to attend rehearsals and are expected to do their best to make sure other commitments do not interfere with their ability to serve on the HC Worship Team.
Because we value the importance of family, prospective worship team members should not join without the full support of their family.

Attendance and Punctuality

  • Attendance and punctuality are very important factors for being a member of the music team.
  • Members should arrive ready to work on the designated material and should know the material.
  • With little rehearsal time available before services members should arrive ready and prepared to play.
  • Poor attendance and showing up late for rehearsals demonstrate a lack of discipline and respect for the worship ministry.
  • Those who are unable to attend rehearsals should not expect to participate on the worship team the following Sunday unless prior arrangements with the Executive Pastor have been made.

New Applicants and Waiting Periods

  • We constantly seek to expand our worship team. Anyone interested in serving is encouraged to set up an appointment with the Executive Pastor Jeremy Davidson to discuss the guidelines and expectations. The prospective worship team member will also have a brief and informal audition at this time.
  • New applicants to the worship team will be required to attend several rehearsals before “taking the platform.”

Schedule Conflicts, Etc.

If at any time, a member (including visual equipment operators, sound engineers, etc.) cannot attend a service, rehearsal, etc. they must notify the Executive Pastor in advance if at all possible so that proper adjustments can be made.
* It is important to state that we intend for the above information to serve as a guideline, but we realize that exceptions will occur. These exceptions will be determined by the leadership of Harrah Church.
Lastly, open communication is of vital importance. If at any time a member is confused, discouraged, or unhappy with the way things may be happening at a given time, they are encouraged to speak with the Worship Pastor. The only way to deal with hurt feelings, resentment, confusion, etc. is to bring it out into the open so that the Lord can help us work through it as a team.
