From our Worship Leaders Donny & Sharesse Warfel
Donny and Sharesse here! In 1999 there was a song released by Matt Redman called “The Heart of Worship”. The chorus goes like this… “I'm coming back to the heart of worship, and it's all about you, it’s all about you, Jesus. I'm sorry Lord, for the thing I've made it, when it's all about you, it’s all about you, Jesus.” This song has been one of our favorites, and in a way sums up our feelings about leading worship at Crosspoint.
Getting back to the heart of what it’s really all about, and that’s Jesus. Removing the focus off ourselves, and simply singing about the goodness and holiness of our heavenly father. God has most definitely been on the move through worship on our campus. Every week we feel like He is showing more and more of Himself to us through our worship to Him.
At the helm of our time in worship is our amazing team of volunteers. Not only do they give of their time starting at 6:30 a.m. on Sunday mornings, but also during the week on Wednesday nights in rehearsal. We do so in order to work through the songs ahead of time. That way we can collectively bring worship to God that is excellent! We rarely strive to sound exactly like the original track; rather we strive to make the songs our own, for our campus to be able to easily engage in worship to God.
Does this sound like an area of ministry you’d be interested in getting involved with? We are actively seeking God for the right people to join our team. Asking Him to send us people who number one, love Him wholeheartedly and two that that want to be a part of leading his people into worship. How can you help us? Well, for starters you can pray along with us. Then, if you know of someone, or maybe you are that someone who plays an instrument (especially drums) or sings, or is interested in running sound or slides, then COME SEE US! We would love nothing more than to sit with you and discuss how your gifts and abilities can be used in furthering what God is already doing here at Crosspoint South Crestview. It is an honor and privilege to worship God with you all each week, and we look forward to seeing how God will continue to show up in our lives like only He can. Until Sunday…peace out family!
