Worship Ministry

Worship at Asbury offers a variety of opportunities for people to use their gifts and talents to help the congregation more fully experience the presence of God in our services. Whether you are a trained musician, play for fun, or have a spirit for creative communication, there is a place for you in helping us shape meaningful expressions of worship for the people of Asbury.

Please contact the Ministry Directors or team leaders for information about rehearsal schedules or other ways to get involved with Asbury's Worship Ministries.
