How does this mindset affect the worship ministry at PFBC?
PFBC has transitioned over the last several years from a more presentational style to an engaging format. Micah implemented this transition via choir specials, setlists, student engagement and more.
Occasionally Sunday morning setlists include choir specials. When these opportunities arise he is sure to include both his student and adult worship choirs to attend on a Sunday morning. “Displaying multigenerational worshippers brings much energy to the room.” In the last two years, Micah also uses his worship choir specials to introduce new songs. By doing this, he has felt a much more engaging response from his congregation.
Annually, the student worship choir takes a mission trip typically somewhere out of the state, however, this last year Micah felt it was important to bring their missional mindset to their own city. “We held a Bible Club for a week right here in Picayune, Mississippi to engage in long term relationships, ultimately building a bridge with families.”
Training the next generation of musicians
“I am blessed to have excellent musicians on the worship team.” The Sunday morning crew rehearses in the morning before the services. With his adult teams being prepared for Sundays without mid-week rehearsals Micah has been able to focus more on pouring into their student worship teams during the week. Each week Micah gives the students on the worship team a binder of the upcoming music they can work on for the next week along with tutorial videos and websites to help them learn the material before the next rehearsal. The students are already becoming better musicians by adding these elements into their weekly tasks.
