Worship Values and Practice
Worship is one of the highest priorities of the Greeley Vineyard, as it is for the Vineyard across the world! (And hopefully, for all believers). We stay current with worship trends across the country and enjoy worship songs from a variety of sources, including, of course, the Vineyard, and the songwriters at Worship Together.
To be a part of the worship team one must be able to adequately play an instrument or to sing with a group, including harmony parts. An informal audition is required during one of our bi-monthly all-team worship practices. Each member must be able to read song charts and play by ear, as we do not use written arrangements.
Our teams consist of a variety of singers, keyboard, guitars, both electric and acoustic, bass and drums. The musicians are scheduled to play at least once a month, and everyone is rotated throughout the month.
(See Barb Webb if you are interested in singing or playing)
The Technology Team is considered part of the Worship Team. In order to be a part of our tech crew one must go through a quick training session with the Worship Leader, and understand the values and practices of the team.
A person does not need to have a technology background to help out, but must have a pretty good understanding of how the computer works, and how a sound board operates. (This can be part of the training).
Teachability, good attitude, consistency, commitment, and willingness to work as a team are high values for being a crew member.
Something to consider as a tech team member is that "the less you are noticed, the better you are doing your job." In other words, we want our crew members to enhance the worship experience without drawing attention to the screen because of busy backgrounds and visuals, or to the sound because of feedback or uncomfortable volume levels.
These issues are dealt with during the training, and a crew member will serve as an intern for a period of time before being a part of the regular rotation.
