Exalt The Savior- Worship

  • The Plan: To transform to a more participatory praise and worship style of heart music (music that expresses love to God).
  • The Procedure:
  • Worship will convene with a participatory praise period that expresses love to God led by the minister of music or worship leader who invites others to participate in the worship experience.
  • Lyrics to participatory praise period songs will be displayed on the big screen to encourage congregational participation.
  • Midweek quarterly Prayer Worship Services led by the pastor and praise team will be scheduled.
  • A Concert of Praise will be rendered by the music ministry.

Exalt The Savior – Worship (cont.)

  • The Mass Choir will sing at both worship services except
  • on 2nd and 5th Sundays.
  • The Praise Team will be responsible for providing music for Early Morning Worship on 2nd Sundays and serve as worship leaders for participatory praise period on other Sundays as assigned by minister of music.
  • The Youth Choir will provide music on 2nd Sundays during Morning Worship.
  • The Men’s Choir will provide music on 5th Sundays and Mother’ Day during Mid Morning Worship

Equip The Saints - Discipleship

  • The Plan: To transform to a more discipleship-oriented church.
  • The Procedure:

  • Discipleship purpose-driven lessons will be taught during the Adult and Youth Bible Study on Wednesday evenings.
  • Sunday School Leadership Conference will be held in March.
  • 4- Week Discipleship Bible Institute will be held in August.

Evangelize The Sinner - Evangelism

  • The Procedure:
  • Evangelism workshop will be offered in March during Midweek Bible Study to encourage the membership to share their faith.
  • Spring Community Evangelistic Campaign the week before Easter Sunday will be launched.
  • During the month of July each member will be challenged to bring someone to worship with them who are unsaved or unchurched.
