Joining the Capital Collective (the creative arts ministry of Capital Area Christian Church) is based on being…
- Humble (Servant leader attitude, Mark 10:41-45, Phil. 2:1-11. C.S. Lewis said, “Humility is not thinking less of yourself, it is thinking of yourself less.”)
- Hungry (Do you have a passion for this? Not unhealthily hungry, but having a manageable and sustainable commitment to our mission; being motivated to go above and beyond, to continue to learn and develop yourself and your talents Matthew 25:14-30)
- People Smart (‘Emotionally Intelligent,’ being self-aware, knowing how your actions and behavior impact others, Romans 12:6-21)
- Skilled (Positions on our team are skilled positions; people using the gifts God’s given them to serve others. See Eph. 2:7-10. However, though this is important, this is the last area we evaluate. Having talent is one thing, and it is a good, God-given thing, but it is not the only thing we’re looking at. Our standards of evaluating should be different from our natural inclination to evaluate people based only on outward appearances, based only on looks or talent. See 1 Samuel 16:7. Ultimately, we want people who can work together with others on the team, see their talent as a way to serve others, have a teachable spirit and a passion to continue to develop those talents.).
All of these characteristics can be nurtured and grown, if the passion and determination exist in the individual. It is a great privilege to lead God’s people in worship, and we take what we have been entrusted with very seriously. It is not the place to show-off or to draw attention to ourselves. We want the focus to be on God, who He is and what He’s done for us. Individuals who are unwilling to meet the guidelines above or to be held accountable to them cannot be a part of the team.
