East Coast Christian Center is a vibrant community of believers who love to abandon themselves to worshiping God with sincere passion coupled with real reverence. We have been gifted with a diverse array of anointed worshipers who stand on the front lines and lead us in offering our praises and adoring our Father as we “…make His praise glorious.” (Psalm 66:2) Click the "worship team" link in the left toolbar to meet our team of lead worshipers.
At ECCC, we focus on two primary goals:
- To cultivate collectively The Heart of Worship, and
- To excel and increase in The Art of Worship.
We place great emphasis on praising God passionately, worshiping Him reverently, and serving Him devotedly. Our songs are as diverse as the people who attend ECCC and, although there are many differences in style, background, culture, and musical preference, there is only one true God. When we gather around His throne to sing and shout His fame, we are united as one. We strive to let the throne set the tone when it comes to worship, for it is all about Him, for Him, through Him, and back to Him!
Our goal is to have an encounter with God and draw near to Him in worship. To worship Him is not only our command but it is our privilege. Our prayer for our services is that we meet with and respond to God’s glory and, as a result of that encounter, develop a lifestyle of adoring Him in every aspect of our everyday lives. We want to live a life outside of church that would be in harmony with the melodies of praise we sing to Him when we are inside the building. He is worthy of all that we have to give at all times!
We consider the following essential fruit in the life of a worship team member:
Commitment to Jesus — Each person must be a born-again Believer with a life that evidences a relationship with Jesus Christ.
Commitment to East Coast Christian Center — Each person must have been a member of ECCC for a sufficient period of time, or must express a verbal commitment to become a member, so as to understand the vision and the direction of the senior pastor and the leadership of the church.
Exhibits the call of God to be part of the Worship Ministry — We strive to build a team of worshippers who are enthusiastic and empowered by God and the leadership of ECCC to serve in the Praise and Worship Ministry.
Exhibits a stable, Christ-like temperament — Artists are sometimes eccentric and independent, placing their personal preferences before ministry. Satan also possessed these characteristics before and after his fall. Our desire is to exalt Jesus Christ and to display a Christ-like attitude at all times, particularly when ministering.
Exhibits the heart of a servant — Servant leadership means that the team member is willing to work hard and be timely in their commitments. Worship ministry is one of the most time-consuming commitments in church. It is imperative that team members be on time and prepared for every service and every rehearsal.
Musical talent and commitment to excellence — Musical ability is part of the requirement to be a member of this ministry. However, everyone is expected to work hard at improving his/her talent, regardless of what level you are at currently..
The purpose of the ECCC Worship Ministry is three-fold:
- To develop and maintain a quality team of musicians and vocalists who minister unto the Lord and lead ECCC into God—encountering worship.
- To promote spiritual growth by providing a small group atmosphere among the worship team members, encouraging personal relationships and camaraderie.
- To provide experience and training for future worship leaders and musicians in a local praise and worship ministry format.
