Worship and Creative Arts Ministry

Oakwood’s Worship Ministry seeks to develop a family of believers who are passionate worshippers of God. We believe worship is a genuine, simple response of the heart to who God is and what He has done for us in Christ. This response can reveal itself in many ways from joyful celebration to quiet reflection, and each week we strive to provide an opportunity for all these responses to occur. Within our ministry, it is our goal to grow worshippers that, in turn, become worship leaders to others in real life, relevant ways. Whether you are interested in being a part of our ministry or just a part of our church family, we hope to provide ongoing opportunities for you to see the greatness of God, His love for us, and His salvation through Jesus Christ. He alone is worthy of our praise!

 

Worship Choir

The Worship Choir is a group of called volunteers with a heart and passion for music and leading people in praise and worship. As worship leaders, the Oakwood Worship Choir seeks to model celebratory praise and intimate worship for our congregation in our weekly worship services as well as special holiday and worship events throughout the year. The Oakwood Choir is the foundation stone for leading our corporate worship. If you would like more info on how you can be a part of our Choir, please contact Dan Jones (Choral Ministry Assistant).

The Technical Team is comprised of adults and teenagers who provide the technical support for all services at Oakwood. This includes sound, lights, video projection, PowerPoint presentations, video editing, and CD/DVD duplication. Experience and knowledge are desired but not required; training will be provided. There are always openings as we strive to expand our rotating schedule of volunteers. If you have an interest in this vital ministry, please contact Pete Sweeny (Technical Ministries Coordinator).
