Creative Arts Team
We have two worship teams at North Wake that rotate in leading responsibilities on Sundays. Leading worship every other week gives every worship leader the opportunity to worship with their families and small groups every other Sunday, as well as providing each team two weeks of preparation for their music.
Instrumentally our praise teams are made up of a basic rhythm section, guitars, keyboards, drums, bass, and the occasional flugelhorn. We love using every skilled musician we have to praise our God. (Psalm 150) Those desiring to lead with the Worship Team (WT) are required to interview with Daniel Creswell, our worship pastor, and then a short audition in your area of talent (sound, vocals or band). Members are selected based on spiritual maturity, technical skills and the potential for fulfilling the mission of the church.
Team Leaders are accountable to each other and to the worship pastor for upholding the same high standards that they expect of team members. Recognizing the high visibility of this particular ministry before the congregation and not wishing to lead others astray on account of their behavior, we strive to “be holy as He is holy” and lead by example.
The Psalms Forum
“Praise the Lord! Sing to the Lord a new song, And His praise in the assembly of saints.” In an effort to organize the collective talents at North Wake, a ministry for songwriters and poets called The Psalms Forum organizes these people together as a collaborative effort to write songs for the church. We typically take two song-writing retreats a year. You can hear some of the songs God has given us here. If you are a poet, musician, theologian, or would like more information about this ministry contact Daniel Creswell.
