Music ministries at Ascension exist to enable this Christian community to worship God and encompass the entire continuum of worship cultures, from classical anthems through traditional hymnody to “renewal music.” Those who help with the music here do so because they are called by God to serve Him and His people at Ascension by providing them with an avenue by which they may be drawn into his presence. That avenue is worship, and the vision of music ministry is not so much that of engaging musicians, but of raising up and equipping worship leaders.
From prelude to postlude, music acts as the glue of a worship service. There are often 10 to 15 different pieces of music woven throughout the liturgy. Music in worship can express what words alone cannot. Music is prayer, praise and lament. Music brings scripture alive, encourages meditation, substantiates the heart of a sermon, brings us into focus and invokes the presence of the Holy Spirit. It is a privilege and profound responsibility to be an instrument through whom God can minister.
