“The mission of the Church is to make disciples of Jesus Christ. Local churches provide the most significant arena through which disciple-making occurs” (The Book of Discipline of The United Methodist Church, 2008, ¶120.

Worship

The worship ministry of the local church is often the first, if not only, entry point for people seeking to establish a relationship with God in a Christian community. The ways in which we worship and honor God set a tone for the over all ministry of the church. Look for this and more:

  • A biblical/theological basis for worship ministry
  • The basic responsibilities of the chairperson of worship ministry
  • Keys to leading in vital worship
  • Working with music leaders
  • Promoting the spiritual life of the congregation
  • A worksheet for worship planning
