What do they do?
-Members of MS-Grow are individuals who are in middle school and have started learning an instrument: Guitar (Bass, Electric, Acoustic), Keyboard, Drums or Vocals. MS-Grow is a program designed to help them: improve their skills individually, teach them how to work in a team relationally, and challenge them spiritually to understand biblical Worship in light of God's love.
-Each individual will be paired with a current member of the Worship team to learn and grow from during worship team practices, bringing them hands on training with other talented students.

How do I join?
-See above. Joining MS-Grow is the same process as joining the Student Worship Team. 
-This is so that once they are in High School, and they have improved sufficiently, they could be grafted straight into the worship team.
