The media ministry consists of those who have an interest and/or creative talent for using audio, video, graphic design, webpage design, and other tools of technology arts to assist those that minister through music, drama, teaching, and preaching in effectively communicating their message in the live or recorded setting.
Angel Praise Choir

Angel Praze holds a Winter performance, Spring performance, and has other opportunities to perform throughout the year.
Kids Praise Choir
Kids Praise is for 1st through 6th graders. Their performances are based on Bible stories and creatively presented like you’ve never seen or heard them before.
The Celebration Choir
The Celebration Choir is a multi-generational choir open to anyone in our community who is a middle-schooler through senior citizen. They provide worship leadership and special music primarily for the 11:00 A.M. service. Sometimes they do seasonal musicals that are designed as community outreach events. Their repertoire is stylisitically broad, including traditional favorites, southern gospel classics, and relevant contemporary songs that are biblically sound and heart-touching. Using music such as that published from The Brooklyn Tabernacle, San Antonio Community Bible Church, Prestonwood Baptist Church, Hillsong Church, Mike Speck Ministries, and others, songs are selected based on their ministry value. Depending on the song, the accompaniment is either live instruments or sound tracks - sometimes both. Rehearsals are Wednesday evenings from 6:45 to 8:15 in the Choir Suite adjacent to the auditorium. People who attend the early service can also enjoy singing in the Celebration Choir at the beginning for the 11:00 A.M. service and then leave. Typically, those who sing solos or sing as a member of a small group such as duets, trios, quartets, and other ensembles, are exemplery in their faithfulness in the Celebration Choir. A full choir is a sure sign of a healthy church, so we welcome new singers to join us for a rehearsal. Contact Bryant Shipton for more information at firstname.lastname@example.org.
