Serving in Music Ministry

Thank you so much for your interest in serving with the Music Ministry at Reality SF!

This page provides information regarding the current state of our Music Ministry and how it pertains to your inquiry about getting involved. As you read further, consider if you seem to fit the description of the kind of volunteer we are looking to add to our team.

At this time, our Music Ministry primarily serves by leading worship at our Sunday gatherings. On average, our musicians are scheduled twice per month. Typically, we have separate bands scheduled for the two gatherings, meaning that when you are scheduled, you will most likely be playing for AM or PM.

The Sunday AM Team rehearses each week on the Thursday prior, from 7PM-9PM. (You are only asked to attend Thursday rehearsal if you are scheduled for the Sunday morning band that week.)

The two pages below outline what we are all about as a Music Ministry and what we expect of our volunteer leaders, in terms of character, integrity, and practical commitment:

If you are willing to commit to living in agreement with the values laid out in these documents, I would love to receive an application from you to hear a bit more about your story and sound!

Toward the bottom of the application, there is a place where you can attach audio/video of you doing your thing. A few notes about this:

  1. It doesn’t have to be anything fancy! Phone/Laptop video is fine; I just want to get a sense of where you’re at in terms of skill and style.
  2. Video is preferred, unless you have studio audio recordings you’d rather share.
  3. If you’d like to attach audio/video of you performing a non-church piece, that’s fine. But please ALSO include a sample of you playing/singing through a song in our worship repertoire. (This list of top charting worship songs would be a good place to start)
  4. Please attach separate audio/video for every instrument you’d like to apply for. If singing and playing an instrument, use your discretion to send files where I can clearly hear you doing both.

I am looking forward to receiving your application and talking about potential next steps soon. Please don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any more questions about any of this.
