Hi, My Name is Tim. I'm the current director of the Praise Band at Thorndale United Methodist Church. Our mission as a band is to bring God's people before His throne in praise. We aim to do so by yielding our own hearts to the Lord and leading our community of faith in worship though song by playing the highest quality music we can offer. Tightness and performance are important to us, but authenticity and leading the congregation in honest worship will always trump performance.

We currently have a nice ensemble playing together, but everyone on the team plays just about every Sunday. We don't really have enough team members on various instruments for anyone to take a break without leaving a bit of a void in the sound of the band.

We're interested in meeting new musicians with hearts to serve God through music who might be willing to join us on occasion or potentially become part of a regular rotation on the worship team. We currently have one contemporary worship time at 10am every Sunday, but we are also considering launching a second/ alternative contemporary worship offering in the near future, which will make expanding our worship team even more important.

We like to be open minded about our sound, so we're not opposed experimenting with instruments you might not typically find in a "contemporary" praise band... However, our most immediate need is keyboard/piano. The next priority would be backups or rotating musicians on bass, drums, electric guitar, and acoustic guitar. Singers are welcome too!



P.S. For clarification, if you look at our "gig" info, we're talking about playing on Sunday mornings. I don't like to think of our worship time as a "gig" but used that category as an indication of how often we play and practice.
