ONBOARDING /ˈänˌbôrdiNG/ ~ where you get familiar with what we do and why we do it


We’re so thankful for all that God is doing in and through our worship ministry here at rest, and we are excited to present the opportunity to partner with you to serve Jesus through the medium of music.  We encourage you to read through the Worship Team page prior to auditioning. 

We are currently accepting all auditions via video submissions.  If you would like to audition for multiple instruments, or an instrument and vocals, you will need to submit separate videos for each of those.

Along with musicianship, we are looking for a stage presence that invites the congregation in to worship. 

Please read through the requirements below before completing the audition sign up form.
