Worship Team Auditions

We’re so thankful for all that God is doing in and through our worship ministry here at Crossroads, and are excited to present the opportunity to partner with you to serve Jesus through the medium of music.  We encourage you to read through the Worship Ministry Handbook prior to auditioning.  A link is provided at the bottom of this page. 

We’re accepting all auditions via video submissions.  If you would like to audition for multiple instruments, or an instrument and vocals, you will need to submit separate videos for each.

Along with musicianship, we are looking for a stage presence that invites the congregation to worship. 

Please read through the requirements below before completing the audition sign up form.
