Our vision for worship at Rock Point is to love God fully and love one another through faithful commitment and undistracted excellence. Love. Faithfulness. Excellence. That is our goal in every ministry when we lead our people into worship. We want first to love God so that we can love the people God has put in our church well. We strive to be faithful to God, to His Word, and our church. We don’t want to just do what is popular; we strive to serve a greater purpose. We want to do it so well that the band almost disappears from sight, and our people can just focus on Jesus. He’s the center of it all!
Thank you for your interest in auditioning for the worship team at Rock Point. We are looking for
genuine and skilled worshippers who fit our culture and values. We believe that worship team members
should exemplify what it means to worship in spirit and truth and should lead the
congregation by genuinely and authentically engaging in worship as they lead by example.
Please take time to read the following requirements and expectations that we have for our team members. If you meet those requirements, you will need to fill out an application and submit a video audition.
Basic requirements for participation on the worship team:
To be eligible to serve in a Rock Point worship band, you must consider Rock Point to be your home church, and for the Main Service Band, you must be an official member of the church (this is not required to serve in other worship arts ministries). You must be in agreement with our theological standings and our vision and values. Participation in a Group or Trio is encouraged. We are looking for trustworthy, team-minded people who will take the commitment seriously. Maintaining a humble, teachable attitude is very important. The worship team is not a platform for showcasing individual talents, but a place of service to the congregation.
Previous experience on a worship team or in a band can be helpful but is not required. While there are similar principles used in most live music situations, every band or team experience is different. Be prepared to learn new ways of doing things even as we follow standard practices.
Expectations for participation in a Rock Point worship band:
The time requirement for serving on a Rock Point worship team varies between 5 to 12 hours when they are scheduled for worship services. (This time frame does not include personal practice time, which is also expected.) Because rehearsal time is limited, each band member is expected to come to rehearsal fully prepared, knowing and able to play/sing each part they are expected to play/sing for every song in the service. Although they are not required to sit through all four messages, all team members are encouraged to sit through one entire service.
We make every attempt to not over-schedule team members and to work within their availability.
Worship Team Positions:
ALL BAND MEMBERS
Must be confident in their instrument and be able to play/sing whatever parts that are given to them. Must be able to play with a click track (metronome) and hold tempo. They also must model worship for the congregation by maintaining an attitude of worship while singing/playing with the band. Their focus is on God, not on performing.
Below are the specific skills needed for each position on the worship band.
