About Worship and Church Music Ministries

To the praise of His Glorious Grace (Ephesians 1:6)

The purpose of the IBSA's Worship and Church Music Ministries is to equip and encourage individual leaders, churches, and associations to fulfill the God-given mandate to worship Him in spirit and in truth using a wide variety of worship arts including music, drama, visual art, and media in order to lead believers in worship and draw non-believers (seekers or lost) to salvation.

The Church Strengthening Team will be coming to your area through regional Churches of Strength Conferences.

Many of us are on Facebook, so we have made an Illinois Baptist Worship Leaders page for blogging and affinity. If you need more details about any event, please do not hesitate to call Debbie at (217) 391-3126 or Steve at (217) 391-3132.

We seek to train and encourage leaders to use music more effectively as a gospel tool to reach people for Christ and build more passionate disciples and worshippers. It is our zeal to teach that worship is not a style but an experience with God by establishing, enlarging, and improving the quality of worship and the music ministry in the local church.

To accomplish these ministry goals, we will offer worship leader's retreats which will train and encourage full-time, part-time, and volunteer worship leaders in available literature, worship trends, problem solving and team building. The Illinois Baptist Singing Men will serve as not only a performance organization designed to give Illinois church musicians an opportunity to sing together, but will offer a network for fellowship and skill building.

Future leaders will be trained via Summer Worship University, All-State Choir and Mission tour, instrumental and vocal workshops. We want to serve and encourage you in accomplishing your God-given mandate to reach the lost and strengthen the church.
Blessings, Steve Hamrick
