We are always looking to grow our team! Whether you are wanting to play an instrument in the band, be developed as a worship leader, serve as a sound engineer, or work in media, we would love to create a space for you to use your gifts. To aid in this, we've created a four step process to get you fully integrated into our ministry!
Step 1: Church Partnership
The first step to serving as musician or vocalist at ONElife Church is to become a Church Partner. The church offers a four-week course on Church Partnership on a quarterly basis. Click here for more information.
Step 2: Video Audition
Upon becoming a Partner of ONElife Church, the next step is to submit a video audition. Don’t stress! We don’t expect this to be anything extravagant, in terms audio or video production, this is just to help us gauge where your skill level is at so we know how to best serve you moving forward. (Feel free to use your smartphone!)

Step 4: The Radical Worship Solution
Once you have become a Partner, submitted your video audition, and met with the Worship Pastor, the final step is to purchase The Radical Worship Solution by Austin Ryan. (This book is available at ONElife Church's Resource Center on Sunday mornings at a discounted rate of $10.) As you complete each chapter, please write a few sentences sharing what you learned, were challenged by, found insightful, etc. (Nothing needed for Chapter 1.) Once you have finished the book, please e-mail a document with your insights from each chapter to firstname.lastname@example.org.
...Wait, Why So Many Steps?
There is a chance that our four-step process is a little more thorough than what you are accustomed to, but there's a very intentional reason for that! We believe each person who is a part of this ministry is worship leader (whether they're playing bass, running sound, or leading a song vocally). Therefore, we want to make sure each person is:
We believe your completion of our four-step process for joining the team is the best way to demonstrate each of these traits.
