Audition Process

Once you submit your application, one of our ministers of worship will contact you to arrange an audition time. He will communicate with you prior to the rehearsal about the song or songs for your audition. Sometimes we will ask that you learn one or two songs from the setlist for that particular weekend.

Auditions are, by nature, a little intimidating. We will try to make the process as relaxed as possible. In some cases, it may be evident that an applicant’s skills have not developed enough to serve on a regularly scheduled basis. Should this be the case, those conducting the audition will give some advice on how the applicant can improve. After some time and practice another audition may be scheduled.

Additional Steps

Before you begin serving on the weekend, we ask that you come and hang out with the worship team during rehearsals for several weeks. There are a few reasons for this.

  • Rehearsals cover a lot of ground in a short amount of time. Being a spectator will allow you to see first-hand how rehearsals flow.
  • When you know what to expect at rehearsal, it will allow you to be better prepared when it is your turn.
  • It may help you to be more relaxed. Playing or singing with a new group of people can cause some to be nervous. Having multiple chances to meet and hang out with those you will be serving alongside should calm your nerves.

An additional step will be to have the staff set up an account for you on www.planningcenteronline.com. This is an online service planning website where band members, songs and service flow are scheduled and posted. It allows worship team members to access chord charts and lyric sheets as well as mp3’s of the songs we will be using in worship services.

After your account is set up and you have access to the resources you need, you’re ready to go. The minister of worship is in charge of scheduling vocalists, instrumentalists, and production team members. The frequency with which you are scheduled will depend on how many applicants are ahead of you and the information you provide on the application (i.e. experience, availability).
