It came to pass, as the trumpeters and singers were as one, to make one sound to
be heard in praising and thanking the Lord; and when they lifted up
their voice with the trumpets and cymbals and instruments of music, and
praised the Lord, saying, For He is good; for His mercy endureth
forever: that then the house was filled with a cloud, even the house of
the LORD; So that the priests could not stand to minister by reason of the cloud: for the glory of the LORD had filled the House of God (2 Chronicles 5:13-14).
The music ministry is to act as a vehicle to usher in the presence
of God. It is to set and establish an atmosphere:
- That is Conducive to Worship
- That enables the presence of God to move freely among the congregation
- That helps each
person in the congregation to experience Christ on a personal level.
The music ministry should serve as an enhancement to the worship service
(Not distraction), preparing the people for the delivery of the Word of
God. It is not an end in itself, but neither is it a means of filling
gaps in the worship experience. The music ministry should not be used as
a piece of scenic background, but rather as an active, participatory,
and integral part of the worship service.
