"A time will come, however, indeed it is already here, when the true (genuine) worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and in truth (reality); for the Father is seeking just such people as these as His worshipers." John 4:23 AMP
The worship ministry at Abiding Harvest has a vision from God to be instruments that He can use to draw people closer to Himself. We seek His presence. He is our audience. We have been called to worship, not to perform. The Worship Team (Worship Singers, Worship Band, Audio Tech Team, Visual Tech Team and Tape Ministry) is a group of men and women who pursue a lifestyle of worship, giving their hearts, gifts and abilities as an offering to our Father God. We are a family (always hoping to grow) that cares and prays for one another. We study God's Word together, to grow in what the Father is seeking, to worship in spirit and in truth. Being a part of the Worship Team is a commitment between 5-7 hours per week, as they continually pursue a balance of excellence in musicianship and ministry. For more information on any of the following, please contact Terri Dietrich at 918-449-1970.
