At theGATE, we believe that worship is not only a vital part of an individuals relationship with God, but is also an essential part of our corporate sense of community. Worship Ministry at theGATE provides a modern worship experience that is refreshing, non-manipulative and unforced. Our worship leaders are purposeful about keying into the Holy Spirit to provide an fluid worship experience that is both abandoned yet engaging. With a spontaneous prophetic flavor and an unrivaled depth of presence, our worship teams lead the congregation to a place that is both strengthening and adoring.
Worship Ministry at theGATE goes beyond the mere presence of an Arts Community Gathering and requires a high level of regular and ongoing commitment. Service on one of our Worship Teams is open to any musician or vocalist that has completed Main Gate, exhibits an appropriate level of skill and proficiency, and is willing to commit to a regular schedule of preparation and weekly rehearsal participation. House Church Worship Leaders and Teams are also included under this ministry’s umbrella.
