The Music Ministry of Blue Creek Baptist Church is led by Jeffrey and Jennifer Benson. Blue Creek Worship has become near and dear to the hearts of Jeffrey and Jennifer. In fact, both being members of the Worship Team is what brought them together. Jeffrey grew up in Jacksonville and Blue Creek has been his home church for nearly all of his life. Learning to play instruments since he was 6 years old, music has become a lifelong hobby that continues to give back. Jennifer’s family moved from Ohio to Sanford, NC early in her life where she began to sing and play the piano. The love of music in Jennifer’s life led her to pursue and achieve a Bachelor’s degree in Music Education from Gardner Webb University and become a high school performing arts teacher. Jeffrey and Jennifer’s lives have been influenced by the love of music and this transitions into the desire to lead our congregation to worship our God in song. Experiencing how music can shape and directly affect one’s emotions and stir their hearts, their hope is that the musical worship will encourage a deeper worship experience.
The music ministry is open to all members of Blue Creek and we are continually looking for new additions to our music team who desire to share their gift of music. In addition to the service Worship Team, holiday Cantata’s (mini musicals), and solo opportunities, Blue Creek has an adult and children’s choir that participate in the worship service periodically. We even encourage those that don’t see music as a primary gift to join as there is even opportunity to learn about music and be a part of the music program.
Great is the Lord in Zion, He is exalted over all the nations. Let them praise your great and awesome name – He is holy. Psalm 99:2-3
