the church choir'SMISSIOn and relationships
Tar mission of the choir is ps definite, mativcly apeaking os j
tha’-i the pastor. Each member of it is in an official position in.
the' church either by employment or permission, in <‘"ner case.;
th-i-c is an endorsement with the worship rrvicc. The mission m
the chosr in evangelical churches i s twofold, its primary .mission ,
j-. to sing the gospel of Christ in a defunt. va> lor tne fcpec;i-
Purnose that Christians may be strengthensi tor tneir basics in h *.,
edified and inspired to do more for Christ than those who, m :
past, have accepted the Savior but have drifted away nom llmt;
and I-lis church, may be led to realize* their back sl-dden da.:, j
return, and pledge anew their allegiance to Hun and Hts <• \
and that those who arc lost and in sin may accept Const and ■■■ |
, ;iV pd. The choir, therefore, is not onranc.cd for the purpose ol j
enslaving fine dressc.n beautiful face:-, mowing r-ff the dignity
o' the caps and gov. nr or even displaying the melodic, harmonic,
rhvjt tunic, or am a the: niiui.-al power- of individuals without a j
deep sense of c . rsc : v.u ■. -i ; i the srrv. o
The secondary mission ol the choir to km! in the congioga* ;
1 There are certaijj person:- A u : .ni.rations with which the ,
choir has vital relationships I; the .. •..'-•.Dance of these relation- j
ships can be realized, the .Mlitud • . all persons concerned will
be (sympathetic and their won; u gi ;)n:r will be pleasant and mu- j
I. ifhe Relationship cf the Choir to the Pa-dor
i Every choir is under obligation t the pastor and the parlor'
likewise is under obligation to the choir. If the pastor and ehoi" j
fail to cooperate, it Is because they imv- fa >d to r.-r.lizy their mu- |
tual relationships and obligations. The member; of the choir should J
re member that the pastor is the leader of tin. v.-m !•- church pro- j
pi nr.-It is the duty of choir member.; to : upper! and -rd the par.- j
y • m carrvmg' on the service of the church C..on - m.orv.’oerß shouiti
pray for the pastor, and he should be invited to m rehearsals j
li. The Relationship of the Pastor to lh<» Choir
The success of the choir depend in » largo measure upon j
the attitude of the pastor toward it Without, ins sympathy and i
eoepf),oration to the fullest exent. the choir is greatly Handicapped j
T'r.e paste,- should remember that he is pastor of tie choir in the !
sane: sense that he is pastor of the other deoar,ment-. of the church !
]i.'e, and -hould .assume the responsibilities according!;--. H should ;
attend choir rehearsals occasionally to show his interest in and j
noprf'ciati n for the efforts of the choir. lie shoould t-ike an interest'
in tin-spiritual life of choir members He should avoid making cri-I
tic:;-ms of his choir to others, privately or publicly. Appreciation j
for the chirr should be expressed privately and puublicly. The !
pastor should lend all the aid possible in the matte* of finance to j
cari-v nn the choii work lie should pray regularly for it. He should
r. -di/o that it is possible for las director and other members to
know the chatactei and type of music needed better than he does. I
111. The Relationship of the Choir to the Church
The relationship of the choir to the church carries mutual •
- - 'igai: .ns and unless they are icalized and fuifi.led a lack of j
” is * resu >s ; ;;•> vim-:. s!v-..- remember that it is only !

take a part in other phases of the church life.
