How Great Is Our God Website BannerWelcome! – We’re so excited that you are interested in joining our team!  It is an honor and a privilege to serve God and people through our worship services.  Our number one priority is to see God honored and glorified each and every week and we count ourselves fortunate to be a part of the process. 
We have found that in order to serve with both excellence and authenticity, it is necessary to have a fairly rigorous process in place.  We understand that this can be a stressful experience for anyone, so we promise to be nice and make you as comfortable as possible.  However, we also want you to understand that our standards are high and we believe being clear about expectations and cautious about who we bring onto the team is to everyone’s benefit.
If we haven’t scared you off yet, read on!
Application / Audition Process
Step 1: The Job Description – Read the job description to get a clear understanding of what will be expected of you at a given position. 
Step 2: The Application – Fill out the online application:  There are two parts to the application form, including the application itself, and the reference form.  Send the link from the reference form page to 2 – 3 character references for them to fill out.  At least one reference should be from someone in ministry who can honestly evaluate your character, and your ability to serve on our team (Pastor, Worship Leader, College Christian Organization Leader, etc.).  Your application will not be considered complete until at least 2 of these reference forms are received.  Once your application and references have been received and reviewed, you will be notified whether or not we will be continuing with the process. 
Step 3: Audition or Mentored Tech Training – If your application is accepted, we will move forward with either an audition during one of our weekly rehearsals (for worship team) or mentored training in the technology booth (for tech team).  In either scenario, you will be evaluated by members of our team to see if you have the necessary aptitude to serve on the team before you will be given an official position.
Step 4: Interview – If it is determined that you have the necessary aptitude or skill set to participate on the team, you will be asked back for an interview with the worship pastor and some of the worship team members.  We have found that talent and aptitude – while absolutely necessary – only make up part of what it takes to be on our teams.  We use the “3 C’s” (Character, Competency, and Chemistry) as a guide.  We want to determine if you are a person of high character, acceptable ability level, and whether or not you’ll work well on our team. 
Step 5: Probationary Period – Sometimes we get it wrong.  We try to do everything in our power to make the process work so we do not have to have hard conversations down the road, but occasionally someone we thought was going to work out simply does not for one of many possible reasons.  That’s why when you come on the team it is initially probationary.  After a certain amount of time every probational team member has a “sit down” meeting with the worship pastor to get an honest evaluation of how it’s been going.  The result of that meeting is up to the Worship Pastor.  It could result in membership on the team, dismissal, or an extended probationary period.    
Step 6: Member in Good Standing – Congratulations!  If you’ve made it this far, you are a team member in good standing.  It’s time to relish the satisfaction that comes from serving God in a team setting within the church.  But remember, your position is not necessarily permanent.  You will have to subject yourself to future evaluations even once you have been made official.
