• Recruit, train, and develop a world-class worship team leveraging classic/traditional music to impact others for the sake of the Gospel.
• Shepherd and mentor an army of volunteer leaders and paid staff.
• Create opportunities to reach those who don’t know Jesus through special events incorporating excellent traditional music.
