Ministry Standards

I pledge before the Lord Jesus Christ to stand for Him in ministry through my music and/or artistic abilities on the foundation of the following ministry standards:

Personal Devotion

My personal and private growth in devotion to the Lord Jesus and His Word will always hold priority over the advancement of any public ministry or work.

Accountability

I reassert my commitment to the Lord, through a commitment to local church ministry involvement; and, the voluntary participation in a small group of Christian peers, with whom I will nurture openness in areas including: personal devotion, purity, family, work, rest and exercise.

Whether I eat or drink or whatever I do, I do all for the glory of God. (Corinthians 10:31)

Proclamation

My ministry will always strive to promote the reputation and name of the Lord Jesus Christ over my own reputation; and the advancement of Christ’s Kingdom over my own career.

Performance

My public performance will always seek to emphasize ministry that is spiritually, morally and ethically pure.

Progress

I will regularly rededicate the development of my artistic craft(s) to the agenda of proclaiming Christ’s gospel and worshipping the Lord God Almighty--whether or not I ever attain a music- or arts-related occupation.

Reproduction

I commit regularly and prayerfully to seek out those other artists in Christian testimony, even those who may one day surpass me in artistic ability and notoriety--whom I can mentor and train.  That is, I will apply the general Christian principle of discipleship to the specific arena of intentionally seeking to reproduce other music/arts-oriented ministers, as I go about exercising my own artistic abilities in ministry.

And the things you have heard me say in the presence of many witnesses in trust or reliable (people) who will also be qualified to teach others.
(II Timothy 2:2)
