d-musicWe are excited for your interest in knowing more about the Worship Ministry here at Deer Park First. Being involved in this ministry shapes our corporate worship as a church alongside our personal growth as individuals. Our primary focus is to help our congregation engage God through the Worship Arts. There are many areas where different skills, talents and gifts can be explored and we desire to engage you where you best fit. The first step is to reach out and allow us to begin a relationship. This will enable you to find an area of the ministry where you can immediately become involved while getting acquainted with the focused goals of this biblically-based ministry at Deer Park First.

What We Do

Our mission is simple…to exalt and experience Christ. We want every person who sits in our worship center each Sunday to encounter authentic worship in spirit and in truth. Through current praise and worship songs, the traditional hymns or choir anthems, it is our goal each service that the young and old alike would sense the over-whelming manifest presence of the Almighty God and that they would be free to respond accordingly and biblically. As a part of this ministry, each person plays a huge role in facilitating these moments and helps our congregation engage the presence of God. Worship will also be a key part of the Missions Ministry at Deer Park First outside the walls of our church, introducing people to the presence of God online and in public places throughout the community, city, state, country, and even other parts of the world. Of course this goes well beyond just the singing of songs and playing instruments…it is a lifestyle of worship with many different areas in which to engage. Our ministry area encompasses the music and media elements of our church.
