Men’s Ministry

The purpose of the Men's Ministry at Priestly Praise Ministries is to build strong, spiritual men As Proverbs 27:17 states: "As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another."  Strong men build up other strong men.

Our goal is to provide for our family, fight for righteousness sake, have close male friends that encourage each other and we are faithful to our wives and single men keep themselves sexually pure before marriage.

The Men’s Ministry meets every 2nd Saturday from 9 am – 11am.  This meeting is designed to help men grow in their relationship with God and build deep friendships with other godly men, resulting in spiritually stronger men, husbands, fathers, families and churches.

Every 1st and 3rd Wednesday is an activity night designed for fun as we mentor our young men.

Women’s Ministry

womensThe women’s ministry at Priestly Praise Ministries is aptly named PEARLS inspired by Matthew 13:45, 46, which reads 45 “Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant looking for fine pearls. 46 When he found one of great value, he went away and sold everything he had and bought it.   Women should view themselves as treasures, as the pearls they are in God’s kingdom!

Meetings are held on the 2nd Saturday of each month from 4:00 p.m. -5:30 p.m. unless otherwise noted.  Meeting types rotate each month i.e. internal meeting one month and external activity the following month.

Youth Ministry


We believe that the youth are an integral part of this church.  As adults, we have the responsibility to help youth grow in their faith and become fruitful members of the congregation and community.

The youth ministry is to equip, train, prepare, support and encourage youth to live out their faith in Jesus Christ, to serve Him and make His name known to the world. 

Activities include teaching and training every 1st and 3rd Friday; special events, such as youth conferences, social events, mentoring and discipleship.  Additionally, special emphasis is being placed on our youth being whole, body, soul and spirit.  Priestly Praise Ministry will partner with parents to ensure youth are developed spiritually, socially, academically and emotionally with the proper knowledge, skills and abilities to be successful in every area of life.

Worship and Celebration Arts Ministry

The Worship and Celebration Arts Ministry is composed of persons praise and worshipers set over the service of song in the house of the Lord (I Chronicles 6:31). Its purpose is to set the proper atmosphere for God’s house for the effective ministry of the Word of God; and an inviting atmosphere in which people experience God and respond by expressing worship.

Praise Team/Choir

It is our belief that the Praise & Worship team is a vital part to the ministry of this body of believers.  Members should view their function as ministers of the gospel through music and song.  Those serving should view their role as a calling from God.

Membership on the Praise Team is a position of Christian Leadership.  The primary function, then, is to lead the congregation in true worship under the guidance of the Holy Spirit.  “God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship him in spirit and in truth.” (John 4:24). 

Qualifications & Commitment:

  • It is very important for those who participate on the Praise Team to feel that they are “called, appointed, and anointed” to minister through song.
  • Team members must be born-again believers of Christ, and their lifestyle must resemble that of a born-again Christian.
  • Team members must be worshipers on and off the platform.  Anyone who has difficulty worshiping at home or in the congregation is not ready to be a leader.
  • Team members should be open to receive advice, correction, training, and should be committed to becoming proficiently skilled at their ministry. (I Chronicles 15:22)
  • Team members need to make worship and practice a priority in their lives.  This means being there on time to practices and also being there in adequate time on Sunday morning. 
  • Team members need to initiate singing, clapping, dancing, lifting hands, shouting and other acts of worship when appropriate.
  • We should never “wing it” or “fly by the seat of our pants.”  Worship should be prayerfully planned, practiced and executed.
  • Team members must be able to work well with others.
  • Team members must have some sort of musical skill and ability.


  • Commitment to prayer and Bible study on a consistent basis.
  • Commitment to lead by example.
  • Having a heart of worship.
  • Exhibiting enthusiasm and high energy.
  • Unity and mutual love one for another.
  • Praying one for another and giving support through fellowship.
  • Presenting to God (integrity) and not to people (image).
  • Being consistent and punctual for rehearsals and services.
  • Give advance notice when not able to attend rehearsals or services.
  • Determine and commit to a set time for rehearsals.
  • A trusting worship relationship with Jesus Christ that is clearly exhibited.
  • Above reproach.
  • Ability to follow musical directions.
  • A tither.
  • Lead people into worship.
  • As a team member take time to prepare your heart for worship.  This entails prayer, reading Scripture, having an attitude of worship.
  • Members must dress properly.  Although we know God does not judge us by outward appearance (1 Samuel 16:7), we also realize that proper attire adds a level of professionalism to the worship experience.  Members are encouraged to be neat, clean, and appropriately dressed for all services. (2 Chronicles 5; 12)

NOTE: Praise team members are appointed by the Pastor.

Sound Engineers, Visual Equipment Operators
  • Sound engineers and visual equipment operators are important members of the music ministry.
  • Visual equipment operators should be attentive at all times during the service and ready to make changes “On the fly” where necessary.
  • Visual equipment operators must operate in a spirit of excellence.  Spelling and grammatical errors must be corrected in a timely manner.  Visual effects and aids must be appropriate and professional.
  • The sound engineers should always arrive early and ensure equipment is turned on and ready when needed.  Sound engineers must be alert and responsive, especially during the worship, and should be ready to make adjustments quickly.
Dance Ministry


The Dance Ministry at Priestly Praise is excited about going to the next level!  Praise dance is worship to God.  The Bible tells us: “Whatever you do, do it enthusiastically, as something done for the Lord and not for men.”  (Colossians 3:23 HCSB)

On Wednesdays from 6:00 a.m. through 10:00 a.m., the Dance Ministry joins the praise team by fasting.  Fasting is more than just not eating food.  We refrain from eating candy, staying off Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram and all other social media sites, taking a vow of silence.

Please be mindful of attendance, tardiness and poor communication.  Please provide at least 24 hours’ notice if you cannot attend rehearsal, event, church performance, etc.  

Rehearsals are every 1st and 3rd Saturdays at 9:00 a.m.   Every Saturday 2-3 dancers will rehearse with the praise team at 11:00 a.m.
Uniforms may be purchased from  Items may also be purchased from “Head Over Heels Dancewear” located at 1656 Legion St. in Tallahassee, FL.  Phone 850-224-5140.
