Desert Vineyard Worship Ministry exists to do two things: First and foremost we intend to make Christ the center of attention, purposefully bringing our voices and hearts to him in an offering of genuine praise for who He is and what He alone has done. Secondly, we exist to help people to have an encounter with the Holy Spirit through music. If you are passionate about Jesus and a skilled musician or singer you should consider signing up to audition for the DV worship team. There are several ways you can serve depending on your availability and skill level, each one an important expression of what we are reaching for in worship ministry. It is good to sing praise to the Lord (Psalm 147:1)... if you can do it on key and with a passionate heart then it might be good for you to do it as a lead worshiper!
