Worship Leader Profile
Overview of Rock Prairie Baptist Church

We are a church located in rural Indiana that has an average Sunday attendance of 600. In 2009 a 1.8 million dollar worship center was erected that seats 550 people. There are three full time pastors and two part time support staff. The emphasis of the church is based upon Deuteronomy 6: parents and grandparents being the primary spiritual instructors of the next generations. Everything we do is done with an emphasis on encouraging and equipping our parents to spiritually lead their families. We ask each family to commit to three things: praying with your family daily, having a family faith talk at least once a week and doing a family service project once a month.

Overview of the Current Worship Team

Rock Prairie Baptist Church’s Worship Team is currently led by a volunteer Worship Team leader. Our music is mostly contemporary. We typically have a piano, rhythm guitar, lead guitar, bass guitar, and drums. We occasionally have other instruments such as a saxophone, keyboard, flute, tambourine, etc. We schedule six singers of which four would sing the melody with a couple singing harmony. We practice every Thursday evening and come an hour ahead of the first service to warm up and go through any “rough” spots. We use EasyWorship for the projection of our songs through CCLI Song Select. We are just getting started using the Planning Center to schedule teams and the order of service including the chord sheets. We have a volunteer who is very talented at writing and directing sketches as requested by our Senior Pastor. Our Audio/Visual Team is also run by volunteers. We have two services on Sunday mornings 8:45 and 10:45. The two services are very similar with the same music, Worship Team, AV Team, drama when scheduled, and sermon. We are looking for a person to bring all of these elements together along with assisting the Pastoral Staff as directed by the Senior Pastor.
