Let the Worshippers Arise

I have the great opportunity to serve in a ministry that reflects its name in its volunteers. As the Worship programming pastor at Mount Pleasant Christian Church, every weekend I get to experience not only the church worshipping, but also the volunteers worshipping while they serve. Whether it is changing song lyrics onscreen or moving a lighting setting, it is absolutely awesome to see them do their tasks with excellence and worship at the same time. I have been questioned before if this is a problem, since it could represent a potential distraction during the service. And I have to say, it does not have to be!

Well-trained volunteers will be able to deliver what they are asked to do and worship at the same time. For some, to raise their hands during a song could represent a challenge (video camera operator, for instance). But that should not stop them from worshipping from their hearts, which is what is expected from all of us anyway.

Today at Mount Pleasant Christian Church (www.mpcc.info), we count on at least seven volunteers every week, to run projection, sound, cameras, and lights. We expect them to do their tasks with passion and excellence, but first and foremost, we expect them to be true worshippers. I am proud of our volunteers and all that they bring to the ministry. My prayer is that we will grow this ministry even more, and as we serve, we will let the worshippers arise.

Joelson "Joey" Santos has a vision for developing leaders and seeing the Body of Christ reach its full potential. That vision is rooted in godly heritage and born of a deep desire to pass on what God has given him through his experiences and by prayer and study.
