As a new season begins, Jubilee USA forms strategies to strengthen and expand the current music ministries. This includes raising the standards of musicianship, increasing memberships, advancing audio-visual productions, as well as building up local support from musicians.
One key strategy to strengthen Jubilee music ministries is to mobilize local volunteer communities. Jubilee, as a Christian music organization, sets its foundation on using one's musical talents for the advancement of the Kingdom of God. And Jubilee USA searches for musicians who share the same visions and devote their lives for such mission. There are many musicians in the neighborhoods who wish to share their talents but have no opportunities. Jubilee serves to provide the performing grounds for them, while introducing to them the unconditional calling of God and the joy of serving God with music.
For example, as Jubilee Chorus staff in New York searches on the internet for a new rehearsal pianist, they found many self-promoting pianists. These pianists are asking to be included in the music production industry. Their values and motivations as musicians will be examined by Jubilee New York staff.
Jubilee USA will focus on finding willful musicians that share the same core values as Jubilee, as one professional source advises about volunteer recruitment. "While interests and passions change rapidly and are hard to pinpoint, values tend to grow and develop. There are plenty of people looking to volunteer, but the key to enjoyable volunteerism is finding people who feel your cause truly resonates with them," says the source.
Jubilee USA prays to strengthen its music ministries with local musicians and artists who resonate with the vision of fulfilling the Kingdom of God through spreading the Gospel. May God guide Jubilee USA to encounter such thirsty souls who yearn to share their talents out of the joy of salvation through Jesus Christ.
