UncategorizedJared KennedyComment

Do you have a musical talent or gifting that you aren't currently using to serve our church family? Are you interested in learning more about leading worship with kids? If so, we're looking for you, and we'd like you to try out for the Kids band.

If you are interested in auditioning, here is the low-down:

  1. Auditions will be held from 7pm until 9pm on Friday evening, March 15th, in the Kids Assembly room on the second floor of St. Vincent's Cathedral. You can sign up here.
  2. You must be a member of Sojourn or in the membership process to be considered for the team. You will also need to complete the Sojourn Kids application/background check before you are scheduled to play.
  3. Each auditioning singer/musician will be responsible for learning the following three songs: (1) Mighty, Mighty Savior (Sovereign Grace Kids) [sheet music, chord chart, and streaming audio], [hand motions instructions]; (2) To Be Like Jesus (Sovereign Grace Kids) [sheet music, chord chart, and streaming audio], [hand motions instructions]; and (3) Go (Seeds Family Worship) [chord chart], [streaming audio--track is on Power of Encouragement (vol. 5, track 8)], [hand motions instructions]. Be sure to get the songs early so that you have plenty of time to work on them. You'll also receive a small kids liturgy to learn before your audition.
  4. You'll be assigned a tryout time between 7 and 9pm on the evening of the 15th. At the tryout you'll take your place in a small band of veteran Kids' Worship musicians, and you'll lead songs for a classroom of kids. The tryouts will take place in conjunction with the community group leaders boot camp, so there will be a number of kids present in childcare, and they'll be your audience.
  5. If you have any questions or concerns - please email Tyler Ratliff at
We're confident that there are many in our church family that the Lord has gifted to lead kids in song. Please sign up right away before the audition slots fill up!
