“Not to us, O LORD, not to us, but to Your Name give glory because of Your lovingkindness, because of your truth.” Psalm 115:1
The Music Ministry of Westview Bible Church exists to glorify and worship the Lord by using and cultivating the God-given musical talents of His people to bless and encourage others in their worship of the Lord.
Music ministry is not the right of the talented, but a privilege extended to the committed and faithful.
The ultimate goal of this ministry is to build up God’s people by focusing their attention on the LORD, not upon us. This ministry is not a platform to showcase one’s talents, but rather a place to use one’s gifts for the glory of God and the good of His people.
The Board of Elders is ultimately responsible to oversee every ministry in the church, including the music ministry. Everyone involved should demonstrated respect and honor regarding the policy decisions our elders make regarding this ministry. The Worship Team Music Director works under the leadership of the Pastor and is responsible for leading rehearsals and providing musical guidance and direction for those involved in this ministry. Input at rehearsals is welcomed. However, to avoid confusion and/or dissension, the final decisions regarding how songs will be sung and utilized in the services of the church rests with the Music Director under the leadership of the Pastor.
We are looking for believers who love the Lord and who possess a true servant’s spirit of humility. Such humility is evidenced by a willingness to use one’s gifts in whatever role or manner that best ministers to the body of Christ and complements the musical talents of others. Those who wish to be involved need to be open to instruction and input designed to improve their ministry to others. Those who insist on their own preferences would not be a good fit for this ministry.
