Worship Director Bryant Downey
Most churches — big and small — rely on worship directors to guide worshipers through the spiritual journey affectionately called “church.” It is the worship director who is responsible for setting the mood and rallying the faithful.
Part minister, part choir director, part cheerleader, the “praise and worship leader” is the modern iteration of the church deacons who once offered the prayers and sang “Amazing Grace” and other hymns a cappella before the preacher and choir marched down the aisle to officially start a service.
At Community Baptist, we use a blend of musical styles on Sunday mornings. It is very important to me that the focus is on God and not those up front. “It’s not about ‘look at me,’ it is about leading people in worship.”
Bryant is responsible for:
- Leading Community Baptist into heart-filled worship to God
- Planning and executing Community Baptist’s weekly worship set
- Recruiting, guiding, and encouraging the musicians that cycle on the worship team
