WORSHIP & ARTS
“BUILDING AND REBUILDING LIVES THROUGH WORSHIP AND ARTS”
So we, being many, are one body in Christ, and every one members of one another. Romans 12:5 KJV
Morning Star’s Worship & Arts Department is committed to establishing a worship culture that is conducive for the spirit of the Lord to inhabit and commune with his bride, the church. Through singing, instrumentation, dance and interpretation we create a perpetual atmosphere of prayer, praise and worship; fostering and cultivating the believer’s relationship with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Ministry participants holistically serve God and His people, which they believe is their reasonable act of service. You are invited to join these ministries in giving God perfected praise and glory in the spirit of excellence.
To be a Worship and Arts ministry that responds to God’s worship invitation in spirit and in truth; while helping facilitate an experience committed to the mission of Jesus Christ resulting in transformed lives, effective disciples, empowered communities and authentic worship.
To set the atmosphere for a move of God, by rendering praise and worship through psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs, dancing, miming, acting, prayer and intercession, interpretation for the deaf, video, audio, lighting and music; in ways that facilitate the manifested presence of God in every corporate gathering of the saints at Morning Star Baptist Church.

The Liturgical Dance Ministries are directed by God as a visual means of ministry, tearing down strong holds, opening doors for praise and worship, and demonstrating an intimate covenant relationship with our Father, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit. We believe that liturgical dance is a tool to magnify our gifts in the kingdom to edify the anointing in the atmosphere, invite an anointing that will heal, encourage, exhort, set free and deliver the word of God.
Bro. David Mason
The Greeter’s Ministry is to ensure that everyone who enters our doors are greeted with a spirit filled smile and see and feel the love of Jesus Christ. Because we are His “doorkeepers” and the “first impression” of MSBC, we have a wonderful opportunity and an awesome responsibility to touch every heart. The Greeter’s Ministry is a face-to-face and heart-to-heart ministry. Just as Christ has received us in unconditional love, we accept everyone just as they are.
