Worship Team – How to Audition

Venture Worship Team is now accepting all auditions via video submissions. Our team is singularly focused on leading our community to engage with their creator during our weekly gatherings. We have fun. We love what we do. And we are always looking to add talented musicians and vocalists. We look forward to hearing your audition.

Audition Process

Our hope is that you will find this process as great way to audition. Video auditions have the benefits of 1) you can do it at your own pace and 2) you can take multiple takes to find one that best highlights your skill set (something you can’t do in a live audition). If you have any questions at all…..don’t hesitate to reach out to john.pate@taketherisk.com

If you play multiple instruments and want to audition with them all, we ask that you submit videos for each. This includes vocalists who also play instruments. 

Band Expectations

We don’t have mid-week rehearsals, so how well we play and lead on Sundays is a direct correlation to how well we prepared at home during the week. We believe that God and our church deserve our best…..so we strive to be our best….every week. Sometimes it hard, sometimes it’s challenging….but it’s always worth it. Find out more about team expectations. Read the Venture Worship Team BEattitudes

*Venture band members are non-paid positions
