Creative Arts at Open Door Church includes the Worship Team, the Media Ministry Team, and Living Sacrifice Dance Ministry.
Each Sunday morning at 10:30a, the Worship Team leads the congregation in song to begin the morning service in the sanctuary. Jason Peaks has led worship at Open Door Church since 2000. He has since graduated from Liberty University in Lynchburg, Virginia with a Bachelor of Science degree in Religion emphasizing Biblical Studies, Speech Communications, and Biblical Greek, and from Liberty Theological Seminary with a Master of Arts and Religion degree in Worship Studies. In January 2012, Jason was ordained for ministry and in 2014, he graduated with a Master of Divinity in Practical Theology at Regent University in Virginia Beach, Virginia, where he also works as the Director of Campus Ministries. He, his wife Danielle, and their family reside in Suffolk, Virginia.
The Media Ministry Team (MMT) supports the Worship Team by monitoring lighting and sound quality and displaying song lyrics during the church service. MMT creates and presents the weekly Church News bulletin of upcoming events. During the sermon, any visual aids such as bible verses are displayed on the monitors. Also, all sermons are streamed to the website for online participants.
“And so, dear brothers and sisters, I plead with you to give your bodies to God because of all he has done for you. Let them be a living and holy sacrifice—the kind he will find acceptable. This is truly the way to worship him.” – Romans 12:1 (NLT) Living Sacrifice Dance Ministry supports the congregation by promoting active worship. Dancers accompany the worship team monthly.
