From the worship ministry team @ Living Hope Church.

There are some principles that are bedrock for us.  And we know what we are called to do.  Words matter.  It takes time to clarify what you really believe deep down, and to learn what God’s Word has to say about leading His people in worship.  It is worth the effort to huddle your team around some pizza, break out your Bibles, and start the process of finding your bedrock values.  With 15 years of ministry as a lead worshipper, and many many pizza meetings (and legal pads full of drafts) later, here is the purpose, vision, and values that guide us as a Team at Living Hope…

Ministry Purpose (why we exist) >> To model and facilitate deeply significant worship expressions that result in transformed lives.

Ministry Vision (where we are going) >> We desire to glorify God and to exponentially increase His renown in our personal lives, in our local church, throughout the AFLC, and throughout the world.

Ministry Values (what guides us) >>

1.  We value GOD’S REPUTATION above everything else.

            “Whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.”  – I Corinthians 10:31

 2.  We value FREEDOM in expressing our love to God.

            “Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.”  – II Corinthians 3:17

 3.  We value the authority and power of BIBLICAL TRUTH to change lives.

                “…true worshippers will worship in spirit and in truth…”  – John 4:23

 4.  We value AUTHENTICITY, HUMILITY, and INTEGRITY as reflections of spiritual maturity.

                “…offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God…”  –  Romans 12:1

 5.  We value honest RELATIONSHIPS within the community, the church, and the Team.

                “…being like minded… one in spirit and purpose.”  –  Philippians 2:2

 6.  We value artistic EXCELLENCE for the glory of God.

          “Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart…”  – Colossians 3:23

 >> Does your Team of Levites have a clear purpose and list of values that you all agree to model?

Psalm 24:7 & Luke 10:42 >> Like David, and Mary, I'm in pursuit of my one thing. I'm the Pastor at St. Olaf Lutheran Church in Montgomery, IL. Pastor, teacher, writer, communicator, designer, and drummer. I definitely got the better deal in my marriage to Amy. And I couldn't be any more proud of my five amazing boys. Deeply grateful.
