The music experiences of the congregational services are a vital part of the church’s life. Great congregational singing can be an exciting experiencing for the church family. The vibrant singing of the gathered congregation joining in songs of praise and testimony can do much to enhance the spirit of the church. The musical participation in the typical church is usually lead by a choir and reflects the cultural, social, and spiritual context of a given congregation.

In carrying out its duties, the choir functions to:
1. Sing for the people
2. Sing with the people
3. Sing to the people

In the fulfillment of this three-fold function, the choir must function as ministers of the music ministry within the congregation. Each member of the choir should individually accept the role as an ambassador for Christ.
