|Music Ministry Mission Statement It came to pass, as the trumpeters and singers were as one, to make one sound to be heard in praising and thanking the Lord; and when they lifted up their voice with the trumpets and cymbals and instruments of music, and praised the Lord, saying, For He is good; for His mercy endured forever: that then the house was filled with a cloud, even the house of the LORD; So that the priests could not stand to minister by reason of the cloud: for the glory of the LORD had filled the House of God (2 Chronicles 5:13-14).
The music ministry is to act as a vehicle to usher in the presence of God. It is to set and establish an atmosphere that is conducive to worship, enabling (a) the presence of God to move freely among the congregation and (b) each person in the congregation to experience Christ on a personal level. The music ministry should serve as an enhancement to the worship service (Not distraction), preparing the people for the delivery of the Word of God. It is not an end in itself, but neither is it a means of filling gaps in the worship experience. The music ministry should not be used as a piece of scenic background, but rather as an active, participatory, and integral part of the worship service.
As a music ministry, our primary mission is to magnify and glorify Jesus Christ (Colossians 3:16-17) in everything we do. Furthermore, it is also the mission of the music ministry to facilitate the fulfillment of the overall mission and vision of this church through the delivery of:(A) Spiritual and spirit-led music that enhances the worship service; (B) Anointed music that edifies, inspires, and challenges the body of Christ and further enables them to experience Christ on a personal level; (C)Through-provoking and intelligent music that continues to raise the level of consciousness of the people to the awesome nature of the God we serve through praise and worship; (D) Christ-centered music that boldly shares the “Good News” with those who are lost; (E) Dynamic, multifaceted music for a diverse congregation that will not be mired in mediocrity or tradition, but continues to push the edges of the envelope so that effective ministry can take place in any atmosphere and at anytime; (F) Innovative, fresh, and creative music that is unique to this church while also reaching into the past to bridge the gap between young and old Catholic’s alike; and (G) Training that equips, empowers, and enables others to grow and realize their full potential in the area of music ministry.
