|Our Praise Team|
The Praise Team of the
The Praise Team first sang together at the church's Watch Night service in December 2006 at the request of the drummer, Sharyn Pinkerton. Sharyn personally reached out to a few persons asking that they present at this service, because of the absence of a worship team at the time. A decision was made to form a steady group for this purpose, led by Sean Brotherson. The Praise Team sings every second and fourth Sunday of each month at special services, and meets for rehearsal every Friday evening at 7 and 8 o'clock.
Growth is evidenced by the sacrifice members make each Friday night, balancing school obligations, forsaking the desire to be with friends and other normal activities that they could be involved in, were it not for their loyalty to this ministry. Growth is also evidenced by Renee Callender, another team member who has discovered the leader in herself and continues to blossom beautifully. Praise God for his amazing work in the lives of the persons in this group.
Satan has certainly noticed how God is using the Praise Team, but like any good team under God's providence, this group has banded together to commit and focus on the overall objective of Christ in music, in ministry.
This past year, Pastor Delph appointed Reverend Ormond Morris as Minister of Music and Sister Carmel Walcott as Director of Music. God has also blessed us with extremely gifted musical resources. Prayerfully, this Team will continue to grow and solidify, becoming a force of ministry for Christ.
