We are blessed to have a vibrant and diverse worship ministry here at First Baptist Pigeon Forge. Worship here is expressing our love and adoration to our Savior, Jesus Christ. We truly believe that worship is not just a part of our lives, but rather what we were created to do. Our Worship Pastor, Joel Ogle, is passionate about connecting each generation in our church to God, and leads us in to His presence each Sunday.
If music is your passion, we have a place for you! We have a variety of opportunities for service through the worship ministry.
Our Worship Choir is the backbone of the music ministry at First Baptist Pigeon Forge. Membership is open to anyone high school age and above, and there is no audition necessary. We are just everyday, Christ-loving individuals who want to proclaim it through song!
The Praise Team is an auditioned group of singers who assist the Worship Pastor in leading during worship services for our congregation. We are always seeking additional people with a passion for worship!
The First Baptist Pigeon Forge Worship Band plays in worship each week, and new volunteers are always welcome.
Musical experience is required, as is the ability to read music or chord charts, and the ability to play with click tracks (metronomes). Rehearsals are required and occur on Sunday Mornings. Contact Pastor Joel to learn more about an audition evaluation for this group.
Membership is open to all instrumentalists with at least two years’ playing experience, including students grades 7-12. There is an audition evaluation, and any instrument is welcome.
Student and Children's Choir
Teens are encouraged to participate in our Student Praise Team, which is an integral part of the worship on Wednesday nights. They also participate during Christmas, Easter, and other special events throughout the year.
Children ages Pre-K through 5th grade are encouraged to participate in our Children's Choir program. They meet regularly during Carpenter Shop on Wednesday nights at 6 pm.
We truly value the behind-the-scenes help of our Tech and Media Teams. Although some equipment requires operational training, a servant's heart is all the experience needed to help out.
Contact Pastor Joel if you would like to join any of our worship ministry groups
