It is our goal through worship at Foundations Church to lead people to respond to God’s goodness and experience His glory by creating environments for that to happen. That is an incredible responsibility that requires Godly leaders and gifted musicians. The audition process is a way for us to help find people who are qualified to take on that responsibility throughout the different areas of ministry at Foundations.
There are many ways to serve in the area of worship, and they are not limited to the weekend service. We are continually looking for qualified leaders to serve in our High School and Middle School ministries, weekend experiences, as well as various other opportunities throughout the year.
The audition process is not solely for evaluating someone’s musical abilities. It is also intended to allow us to get to know you better. Musical competency is only one aspect of the process. We are also looking for people of high character and natural chemistry that are both equally important. It’s easy to become attracted to being on stage or in front of people, but we want to ensure that our teams are grounded in an understanding of the purpose we serve and the responsibility that follows.
At Foundations Church we are committed to empowering people to discover and use their God-given gifts and abilities. If that happens to be in the area of worship… great! If not, then we want to help you find the area that God has uniquely gifted you to serve.
One of the most rewarding parts of the audition process often is not about finding new worship leaders but is about helping people discover their giftedness and empowering them to serve in ways that they may have never before considered.
Romans 12:5-8 says, “In this way we are like the various parts of a human body. Each part gets its meaning from the body as a whole, not the other way around. The body we’re talking about is Christ’s body of chosen people. Each of us finds our meaning and function as a part of His body. But as a chopped-off finger or cut-off toe we wouldn’t amount to much, would we? So since we find ourselves fashioned into all these excellently formed and marvelously functioning parts in Christ’s body, let’s just go ahead and be what we were made to be, without enviously or pridefully comparing ourselves with each other, or trying to be something we aren’t. If you preach, just preach God’s Message, nothing else; if you help, just help, don’t take over; if you teach, stick to your teaching; if you give encouraging guidance, be careful that you don’t get bossy; if you’re put in charge, don’t manipulate; if you’re called to give aid to people in distress, keep your eyes open and be quick to respond; if you work with the disadvantaged, don’t let yourself get irritated with them or depressed with them. Keep a smile on your face.”
Our goal is that through the audition process we can help people discover who they were meant to be and how they can serve within the body of Christ at Foundations.
