Worship Arts

Worship Arts MinistryThe Worship Arts Ministry at Mount Pleasant Baptist Church exists to elevate Christ through the arts. Each weekend our goal is to deepen the lives of believers and to guide seekers on their journey toward salvation through authentic, meaningful, and relevant worship experiences.

Worship is very important to us here at the Mount, and it is our desire to help you find your unique way of expressing your heart of praise to God. Please take a few minutes to browse the different leadership opportunities in our ministry to see which ones might be a good fit for you.

Creative Worship Teams

Are you a dreamer? Do you get excited with opportunities to move and inspire people through innovation and creativity? Do you see the potential in artistic expression to make a positive impact in someone’s life? Then these are the teams for you!

The GLOW and Locomotion teams at the Mount are passionate about finding innovative ways to communicate truths about God, His character, and His work, and to then creatively lead the Church in a passionate response to this revelation. We meet quarterly to plan, design, and implement creative arts for upcoming worship services. (Some age requirements do apply.)  For more information please contact Kirsten Kocik, Worship Arts Administrative Assistant, at kirsten.kocik@mpbclife.com or call the Worship Office at (804) 526-0816.
