Worship & Media

IMG_0143The Worship Ministry at Crossroads Christian Fellowship is a vibrant part of the overall worship experience for the fellowship each week.  Alex Morrow oversees these areas of ministry, which include instrumentalists, vocalists, sound technicians, lighting, and the visual projection. Our musical style of worship is contemporary and includes a variety of musical instruments including, acoustic and electric guitars, keyboards, drums, bass, ukulele and flute. We enjoy a rotation of servants each week, which keeps the experience fresh and involves more people each month.

Worship Ministry

Vision:

  • To introduce people to Jesus Christ through the lyrics of music, help them grow in Christ-like maturity by singing of Biblical truth, and equip them to reproduce the process in others through songs of exhortation.

Goals:

  • To minister God’s love and grace to believers and non-believers through the ministry of music, and to present our thanks and praise to God for all that He is, all that He does in our lives, and all that awaits us in His glory. It is our desire that the worship teams present music both in the church and out in the community – to let our light shine before men, so that the world may see our love and draw near to God.
  • To teach, equip and encourage the church body through worship in song; and to teach, equip and encourage those in the body with musical gifting to use and develop their gifts for God’s glory. To provide a weekly time of devotional Bible study, prayer and fellowship, as well as weekly rehearsals; and to offer workshops and seminars for the purpose of improving our skills.
  • To raise up those who are called as worship leaders from among the body who can grow and develop their skills in leading worship, both in small and large group settings.
  • To encourage worship team members to share their faith and pour their lives into others, who can in time do the same. To grow the ministry as the church body grows, by being inclusive of the new people whose gifting God brings to the church body.
