The Ezra Worship Initiative is a paid summer worship internship for college aged students with an interest in bi-vocational or full time music and worship leadership. The mission of Ezra is to develop musically gifted individuals into leaders who can serve with the pastor to shepherd the church in rich congregational worship.
"It’s hard to even begin to express my thanks for how the Ezra Worship Initiative blessed me this past summer. I came into this internship with little technical training, but a desire to learn. Not only did God provide me with many of the tools necessary for a life of worship ministry, but He gave me lifelong relationships with friends and mentors who I will cherish forever. I was put in a place with like-minded individuals who had the desire to grow in their faith and giftings, which created a wonderful learning and growing environment. We received training in musicianship, technology, leadership, and theology, which together gave us a well-rounded education and experience. Beyond all of the training, God drew me nearer to Him and made me fall more in love with the gospel. He grew not only my knowledge but also my desire for Him and His word. I am so excited to see what God has in store for the Ezra Worship Initiative in the future years, and I am so grateful to have been a part of it. To Him be the glory!"
