I’m not sure if it’s normal to celebrate an anniversary in serving for a church ministry, but I’m doing it anyway! Yesterday was Volunteer Weekend in all Victory churches, and I realized that it was exactly three years ago when I decided to use my skills for God’s glory.
February 1, 2013 will always hold a special place in my heart, as this was the day when I auditioned for the Music Team in Victory Davao. It was in line with Casting Call, an event that opened the door for people who desire to serve God through the church.
Here’s what I wrote in my 2013 yearend article about that experience:
I love to sing, but never in my wildest dreams would I see myself singing in front of many people. Sure, I dreamed of being a lead singer of a band, but I wasn’t confident with my singing talent. At the same time, I was inspired to look for a ministry where I can share my time and talents. God surely works in perfect sync, as I felt His direction to try out for the Music Team at Victory Davao.
During the Casting Call on the first day of February, I was overcome by jitters and unsure of my singing skills. But wow, I never expected God to take me to a new level of singing. I sang three songs as my audition piece: “Nothing Is Impossible” by Planetshakers, “From The Inside Out” by Hillsong, and “Like A Fire” by Planetshakers.
Joining the Music Team gave me an avenue not only to sing amidst a mass of people (and with a team of musicians to boot), but also to serve God through the music ministry.
Fast forward to three years after, and God continues to amaze me with His faithfulness. I’m now serving as part of the Music Team in Victory Katipunan, and I am in faith that God will allow me to continue serving and lead people to worship.
Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen. (Hebrews 11:1 ESV)
