We are looking to expand our team as our church continues to grow and as we seek to open up more opportunities to share the gospel in our city.

Please read the following instructions completely before auditioning

Video auctions are open every month from the 1st through the 3rd Sunday of the month. We’re excited about all that God is doing in and through our worship ministry, and we’re looking forward to viewing your videos!

Why Do We Have Auditions?

We have a vision for continuously increasing our worship ministry here at Celebration Church. Auditions are a very practical tool for evaluating the skills and heart of people who feel called to serve on a worship team. And we promise that it will never be like American Idol! We want to create a non-intimidating atmosphere for our audition process as much as possible. At the same time, we value honesty, and we want to encourage the pursuit of skill in the music we present to God.

If you have a heart to lead others into meaningful worship, and you feel you are skilled with your voice or musical instrument, we would love to get to know you! Before you audition, please read the expectations and requirements below for participation on the worship team.

Basic Requirements for Participation:

Please read the following instructions completely before auditioning

To be eligible for the worship team, you must be a member of Celebration Church in good standing. 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 in a small group (called Life Groups at Celebration Church), on a worship team or in a band preferred but 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.

HOW TO AUDITION
