Praise Ministry

The Praise Ministry of Mount Carmel Baptist Church has a place of service for all those interested in music, media, drama, art, etc... Our purpose is to proclaim the life changing power of Jesus Christ through music. Music can have a powerful impact if presented with the annointing power of the Holy Spirit. In 2 Kings 3:15, "Elisha said, 'But now bring me a musician,' Then it happened, when the musician played that the hand of the Lord came upon him." Putting God's message to a beautiful melody can move people.

Mount Carmel's Praise Ministry encompasses each aspect of our mission. The purpose of worship at our church is not just about music and about what takes place within a musical aspect of worship. It's about living a life of worship 24/7, with our jobs, our relationships, our finances, the way we spend our time AND the communion of a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.    

Celebration Choir

The purpose of the Celebration Choir is to proclaim to a lost world, the life-changing power of salvation found in Jesus Christ, and to proclaim to Christians, the life changing power of worship in a believer's life.

This ministry is exciting because of the tremendous calling and responsibility we have to lead the way of the King! As part of our team, we offer encouragement and seek not only to lead you musically, but to minister to your spiritual and social needs. Besides these, choir is just plain fun and a great time of fellowship!


Join us for rehearsal on Wednesday nights from 6:15pm-7:30pm in the Worship Center. For more details, contact Jennifer Bloom.



Celebration Orchestra

The purpose of the Celebration Orchestra is to proclaim to a lost world, the life-changing power of salvation found in Jesus Christ, and to proclaim to Christians, the life changing power of worship in a believer's life.

The Bible commands us to make a joyful noise to the Lord. In Psalm 98:5-6 it says, "Sing praises to the Lord with the lyre, with the lyre and the sound of melody. With trumpets and the sound of the horn make a joyful noise before the King, the Lord."

The orchestra is also open to all students in grades 9th-12th who want to serve the Lord through their instrument.


Join us for rehearsal on Wednesday nights from 7:15pm-8:30pm in the Worship Center. For more information on becoming a part of the orchestra, contact Andrew Pouncey.


Praise Team

Our Praise Team includes the Solo, Ensemble, and Praise Team section of our Praise Ministry. It is exciting because of the tremendous calling we have to lead the way in thanksgiving, praise, and worship to the King! It is an awesome privilege with great responsibility to sing or play an instrument from the pulpit area. We are called to spread His glorious message in song!

The Praise Team is selected by auditions and must be an active member of the Celebration Choir and Orchestra. We are called to use our gifts for Him; may we be found trustworthy! (1 Cor. 4:2) Our walk with Christ and our spiritual growth are a vital part of creating the kind of ministry in which God unleashes the power of His Holy Spirit. We should take stock of where we are spiritually, and make sure we are honoring God not only with our gifts but with our lives as well.

Drama Ministry

Our Drama Ministry's goal is to perform skits, plays, productions, and more that enhance our worship experience by delivering messages of encouragement, joy, laughter, and above all, Jesus' love.

Elevate Student Choir

Elevate is a ministry that is offered for students from 7th through 12th grade. Our purpose is to lift up the name of Jesus Christ through praise and worship music, while clinging to Bible verse John 3:30, "He must increase, but I must decrease."

Elevate combines elements such as worship leadership, drama, interpretive movement, art, and more to proclaim the gospel to a lost world.

Elevate Student Choir will resume in the Fall.

Media Ministry

Our Media Ministry is directed by Mike Johnson. It is open to all adults and 9-12th grade students after meeting with the director or the Worship Pastor. The Media Ministry provides technical support for all church functions. The Media Ministry also creates CD recordings of all services and special events. This ministry is comprised of sound, lighting, Pro Presenter/powerpoint, and video. In weekly worship services, annual events, and frequent other activities, you will find this team giving their time and energy to make things happen.
