o Leading/supporting other worship services or ministry events (Christmas Eve, Good Friday, VBS, Children's Christmas program, worship nights, etc.).
2. The Worship Pastor will lead in such a way that:
o Congregational singing is highly valued. This includes attention to the key and range, song selection, and leading in such a way that people are drawn to participate in worship and not just experience worship.
o Worship sets will include songs that have robust theology as well as an "abide in me" intimacy. This gospel-centered emphasis will include songs that focus on who God is and what God has done as well as who we are and how we respond.

4. The Worship Pastor will identify, recruit, and audition worship musicians and vocalists who have an authentic faith in Jesus.

Through inviting, praying, coaching, and evaluating, he will create an environment where worship team members are valued, developed, resourced, and released into well-fitting roles.
5. The Worship Pastor will look for worship ministry conferences or trainings to develop the team or key members of the team.
