The mission of the Worship Arts Ministry is to exalt Christ and make disciples through public and private worship. Our purpose is to develop and nurture men, women, boys and girls as worshipers of Jesus Christ. It is our desire to encourage and edify the fellowship with engaging encounters for worship and praise. We also desire to be engaged in evangelizing the community, region, state, and world through a comprehensive music ministry by training musicians as worship leaders, teaching biblical concepts of music and worship while planning, preparing, and presenting worship and praise encounters for weekly gatherings.
