To run and maintain an effective ministry of worship, there needs to be certain things put in place. Great ministries do not come overnight and are usually a result of hard work and lots of prayer. Larry Harrison has a great worship ministry in the state of Texas. Below are the basic statements of purpose to their worship ministries existence. We will be bringing you more in the following days that we hope will help in your worship ministries.

Purpose

Helping people improve their relationship with God and each other by freely expressing our hearts to God and committing ourselves to leading the body into celebrative and intimate worship through psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs.

Vision

To be a thoroughly biblical worship and arts ministry that passionately seeks God’s manifested presence and leadership.

Ministry Principles

Accountability
In view of this, I also do my best to maintain always a blameless conscience both before God and before men. Acts 24:16 (NASB)
In every great organization, there is always a high degree of accountability. We believe it is a biblical principle as pointed out in Acts 24:26 as well as other passages in scripture. Without accountability to each other, we can become very “tunnel” visioned and unaware of blind spots in our lives or ministry.

Consistency
...Stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord because you know that your labor in the lord is not in vain. I Corinthians 15:8 (NIV)
We want to be a ministry that is consistent in everything we do. In our lifestyles, in our commitment to excellence, in the quality of presentations that we produce, in the worship times we lead, “consistency” must be one of the chords in the strand that brings these things about.

Encouragement
Encourage one another and build each other up. I Thessalonians 5:11 (NIV)
We can encourage each other in many ways. As we minister together, there will be times that individuals will need encouragement just to make it through the day. Scripture also teaches that we are to encourage one another in “growing in the grace and knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ.” Encouragement will also mean that we pray for each other, write a note of encouragement or take the time to ask someone how they are doing and then have the time to listen if necessary. The objective of encouragement is to “build each other up” as it says in the passage in 1 Thessalonians.
