The worship team is an auditioned ensemble that leads the weekly Encounter (chapel) services at SWCHS. Vocalists and instrumentalists (guitar, piano, bass, cello, violin, drums, percussion, and others) are encouraged to audition. The audition process takes place in the Spring, and it consists of preparing two worship songs assigned by the instructors and a short interview. The Worship Team is responsible for leading music on a regular basis on campus as part of Encounter as well as music for special events such as the All-School Retreat and special worship nights held on campus. A full-year commitment is required, and only students who have been at SWCHS for at least one year are eligible to audition.
Mr. DeJong is the worship team coach.
