How is the worship team structured?

The majority of our campuses have a full-time worship leader. Worship leaders steward the atmosphere for worship at their location and lead a team of non-staff worship leaders. Worship leaders report to the creative arts pastor at their campus.

The central worship team serves the campus worship leaders and their teams by providing vision, support, and operational resources. The central worship team also coordinates and stewards the process of writing and producing original music.



What standards are your non-staff musicians held to?

We want to create a culture of leaders with integrity of heart and skill of hand (Psalm 78:72). To create that culture, all of our musicians are expected to uphold the following standards:

• Love God and love people.
• Live a life worthy of the calling you have received.
• Live out NewSpring’s vision to connect people to Jesus and each other.
• Commit to our no ordinary family.
• Be prepared.
• Be punctual.
• Memorize your parts/lyrics for gatherings.



Do you do auditions? What is the audition process like?

Occasionally, we hold auditions in person, but the vast majority of auditions happen online. In the online audition process, musicians and vocalists submit a video of themselves playing or singing one of the songs listed. We provide the resources to sing or play along with. We also ask those auditioning to answer a few questions and tell us a little about themselves.



How do you schedule who plays when and where?

The worship leader at each campus schedules the musicians and vocalists for their campus. Band members and vocalists rotate often to best serve the church, the team, and the individuals.



How do you plan the Sunday worship set across all the different campuses?

Our goal is to take people on a journey, shepherding them into the presence of God. Campuses plan their setlist from a series song bank of 18 songs. This helps our church remain unified in the songs we sing while giving campus worship leaders the ability to craft the journey for their campus.

From time to time, in order to support a specific message theme, we will plan for unified moments where we all lead the same song at the same time across all locations.
