Worship team @ Mountainview. Worship is a central component of life at Mountainview, and the worship team would be blessed by new participants, particularly those who play core instruments such as piano, guitar, drums, and yes, even organ! If you have a heart for leading worship, experience in singing or in playing an instrument, and have a desire to grow as a musician in team ministry, we would love to hear from you. We encourage especially less experienced musicians to give consideration to this opportunity, as mentoring and coaching are core components of how we operate.

Your prayerful consideration is appreciated. The month of August is a time where we want to give particular attention to having our "doors" open for this opportunity for you to become involved in this area of church life. You can send a note of interest, or questions, to Will Lammers, at Thanks for considering!
