To worship God through music by declaring His great love and helping others worship with us.
Music on Sundays
Music is an integral part of our Sunday morning services. Because of this, we attempt to be very intentional about the type of music we include. We aim for a service of blended music, from traditional hymns to modern music (and everything in-between). When you attend DAC, you'll find some instruments being played, such as:
- Acoustic Guitar
- Bass Guitar
- Cajon Drum
Every service is slightly unique and will have the musical style of the given worship leader of that week. Our prayer is that the unique styles and flairs of each person will declare the glory of God, no matter what their musical background!
We're always looking for more people to join in playing music, no matter what instrument you play. When looking for a musician to take part in the Music Ministry, there are a three criteria:
- Character - Is the musician a follower of Jesus? Do they maintain integrity in their life and behaviour? We understand that people come from multiple backgrounds and perspectives and want to respect that, and we want to be able to continually grow together to look more like Jesus in our lives.
- Competence - Is the person musically competent? This doesn't mean they have to be a professional musician, but there are some fundamentals that have to be in place for a person to be part of the team. We don't strive for perfection, but we do strive for a musical competency that can be brought to the table, no matter how new or proficient a person is!
- Chemistry - Is the musician capable of getting along with others, putting differences aside for the purpose of rallying around the cross of Christ? This is our heartbeat, and we want to lift up the name of Jesus. Every one of us has a unique story, but can we be humble enough to make Jesus the main thing?
We currently practice on Sunday mornings. The time may vary slightly based on the worship leader of that week.
Special Music Events
Throughout the year, we sometimes have artists and other musicians come to our church, or have a unique service planned for a special occasion (ie. Christmas and Easter). Be sure to check out the main page for info on the next concert or event taking place at DAC!
