Student Worship Band Training

“Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth! Serve the Lord with gladness! Come into his presence with singing!” — Psalm 100:1-2

What It All Means

Grace Fellowship UMC has four Student Worship Bands that serve Junior High AM Rush and High School RPM worship

Students from 7-12 grade are eligible to audition. After auditions, we place students into bands based on their grade, skill level, and positions needed in each band. In addition to singers, we mainly need students who play acoustic guitar, electric guitar, bass guitar, piano, or the drum set.

If you would like to be in a Student Worship Band, here are some tips:

  • Start preparing!  Don’t wait. This ministry is not designed as lessons to teach students how to play an instrument or sing. We encourage students to get into private lessons, or choir, or the school band if they aren’t already. These will help them prepare and increase their chances of making it into a band. And if they aren’t ready this year, no worries. We do auditions every May and sometimes in December. Watch for announcements on this website and in services!

  • A Big Commitment:  Being in the Student Worship Ministry requires weekly commitment to practice at home and consistent attendance at band rehearsals.

  • Active Involvement:  If you aren't already, get involved in either AM Rush Junior High services or RPM Senior High services. Students who lead worship for these ministries should be actively involved and that will be one of the first questions we ask at auditions in May.

  • Parent Volunteers:  Each band is led by several parent/adult volunteers. We call them Band Coaches. Most of them are parents of students in the bands. They are usually people who love worship and students, and have some musical knowledge. Coaches do not have to be professional musicians by any means, but they are super important to the success of this ministry. We simply could not run all four bands without these coaches. Parents, please pray about your possible involvement and contact Jerry if you are interested in learning more about being a coach.
