midway Worship Ministries

Midway worship ministries allows those who love the Lord and are skilled, vocally, instrumentally, and technologically, to use their gifts to glorify God through song, and join with the Worship leader in leading the people of God in musical worship. The music ministry is comprised of four groups: praise band, praise singers, choir, and the audio/visual team.

Our worship style is a blend between hymns and contemporary songs to promote unity and variety in worship. If you are interested in being a part of the Midway Worship Ministry, contact Bro. Braylen at blashley@midwaybaptist.org.

Praise Band

The praise team is a group of individuals who seek to use their gifts in instrumental music to glorify God. These individuals play for both of our services on Sundays and Wednesdays, as well as, a night of praise and worship usually on the fifth Sunday of a given month. Rehearsals for Sunday's team are Saturdays at 6:30pm in the Family Life Center, while the team on Wednesday practices are on Wednesdays at 5:30pm in the Chapel. If you are interested, please set up an appointment and bring your instrument. 

Worship Choir

The worship choir is a group of individuals who seek to glorify God with their voices. The worship choir aids in leading the worship on Sundays through singing specials, and singing behind the worship leader. Rehearsals for this group are Wednesdays at 7:45pm in room 107(Choir Room) , located in the end of the first floor in the education building, and Sundays at 8:30am in the choir room(107). The style is a plethora of music all lifting up the name of Jesus. To be a part of the Worship Choir, one must be at least 17 years of age, and have a passion for lifting praises to the lord. If interested, either set up an appointment or simply walk in before practice.  

Praise Singers

This group of singers seek to glorify the Lord through their voices by taking a more prominent role in the worship ministry. This group rehearses at the same times as the praise band on Saturdays and Wednesdays. Those desiring to be a part of this group must be involved in the Worship choir for at least six months, and set up an appointment with the Worship Leader. 

Audio/Visual Team

This group of individuals are responsible for the technological side of the Worship Ministry, including sound and video for both Sundays and Wednesdays. This group is comprised of several teams that rotate weekly. No prior technology background is required. If interested, set up an appointment with Bro. Braylen or talk with Bro. Lyle Mansfield.
