The very 1st post on this blog was about these guys:
This is the worship team at Mt. Pleasant Baptist Church. The picture is a little bit old, so we've actually added a few new members, lost a couple of older members, but the vast majority of the team is still intact. In fact, we have grown to the point of having 2 rotating teams. I say this because I leave Friday to go on vacation. Now, during the first couple of years I was at MPBC, I would worry every time I was gone. Who is going to fill in for me? Who is going to lead while I'm away? Can they handle it?
Well, I don't worry about any of that anymore. These guys have it covered. They have gotten accustomed to leading worship as a team. And that includes the times I am gone. When we first started out, I led every song for every service. Not anymore. Now they lead. I still lead a song or 2 each service, but they lead the majority of them. So, now they are used to leading. And even better than that, they excel at it. And when I am gone, I know they've got it covered. In all honesty, now when I'm gone, I worry more about if anyone actually misses me?
Just kidding:) I say all of that to say this, I am very blessed to work with and serve with the worship team at MPBC. There aren't very many worship pastors who can take a Sunday off and the music and worship never misses a beat. Well, I can, and it's because of the wonderful musicians and worship leaders we have on our team!
