Service Music Styles

For those of you who lead worship or participate on a worship team or in a choir, what type(s) of music do you use during your church services?

I’ll go first. 🙂 We have two very musically different services: A traditional service with the usual hymns, a choir, & special music for offertories. Our second service is contemporary in style (Hillsong, Matt Redman, Vineyard, etc.) consisting of a praise team that includes guitars, drums, keys, flute, singers & also interpreters for the deaf in our congregation. Occasionally we do a blended service with both groups that is usually blended toward more contemporary styles, usually for a special Christmas concert or at the Easter services.

who are we? a.

We here at Women in Worship thought it would be good to introduce ourselves to other members, readers & the like. I thought I’d go ahead & start!

I have been a Christian of nearly a year now, & I’m involved in my church’s music ministry in various ways. We hold both traditional & contemporary worship services. I currently lead our traditional service & choir. In the contemporary service (praise team & band), I bounce between singing, flute & piano/keys depending on what is needed.

God has put a desire in my heart to serve in worship ministry, especially as I grow in my relationship with Him. With my training in music, the skills I’ve honed as a musician are immensely important, & now I feel that God is teaching me what it means to be a musician in the Kingdom as I serve & worship Him in all aspects of my life!

I am extremely passionate for God — I can’t get enough of Him, & want to serve Him in any way I can. I’m still learning, but I want to live for the Almighty Redeemer who saved my life!

I love to read, write, do photography, & of course, play & write music. I’m currently starting to write songs & compose music more than I used to, whenever the opportunity allows.
