WORSHIP

Worship opens our hearts to see God all around us. When we worship, we get to celebrate all that God has done for us and how He is working in our lives. At New Chapel, we thrive on bringing people into God’s presence through our worship each week. There are different ways to serve on the Worship Team: musically, vocally, and administratively.


At New Chapel, we believe that each person apart of the worship team and Sunday morning experience has a vital role in actively “leading worship”. As an electric or acoustic guitarist, you not only provide musical skill but also understand the responsibility of leading the church body and ushering in the presence of the Lord. You're not at all just background noise… we all play a vital role, and we need your talent!


GUITARIST


Playing the guitar (especially in a worship setting) requires diligence in learning about the intricacies of lead lines, riffs, and licks but more importantly also understanding sensitivity with tone and volume and tastefulness. It’s a process that requires commitment and dedication. Then add the most important characteristic… an unbridled love to glorify Jesus.

KEYBOARD PLAYER


The keys have such a vital role in worship. They provide the whole substructure for the rest of the band to build on. The keyboard player will not only be a “key” player in the worship portion of the Sunday morning service, but will also provide background dynamic support for the message as well.

BASS GUITARIST


Do you have a passion for not only playing bass guitar, but also a desire and adeptness for drawing, calling, not forcing, yet encouraging worship among the group? At New Chapel, we believe that each person apart of the worship team and Sunday morning experience has a vital role in actively “leading worship”. As a bassist, you not only provide musical skill and have the ability to be sensitive to driving a volume dynamic but also understand the responsibility of leading the church body and ushering in the presence of the Lord.

DRUMMER


The drummer provides the depth and power of full, loud parts of worship as well as the soft, atmospheric parts. The drums drive the band to fully rock out or die down during the worship set. If you have a passion for percussion, then be a drummer on the New Chapel worship team!

VOCALIST


If you have been blessed with the ability to sing well, and love to lead people into God’s presence through song, then being a vocalist is the spot for you! An audition is required for this role. Your primary responsibilities will be to sing on Sunday morning, and attend Thursday evening practice/bible study for the weeks that you are scheduled.

COMPUTER OPERATOR


One of the most important instruments on the band is the computer! We use Ableton Live to play our click tracks and worship loops. The computer operator types in the appropriate keys during the song to go from one loop to another while also controlling the click-tempo for the rest of the band. No instrument knowledge is necessary, but you must be able to play on tempo.
