WORSHIP AT THE INN SEATTLE

At the INN Seattle, we are a home for 300+ college students from around the Seattle area. At the Inn, we come together to discover real life in Jesus through worship, music, teaching and community. When it comes to musical worship at our Tuesday night gatherings, we value:

  • The Heart of + behind Worship: always centering on God’s purpose for worship, and placing team unity above perfection
  • Varied Expressions of Worship: the image of God is found in all creation and cultures, so our worship should intentionally reflect that
  • Quality + Meaningful Worship: achieving a level of precision, while also leading our community in the meaning behind the songs

You are encouraged to enter into the Worship Team auditions seeking God’s guidance, prayerfully and thoughtfully. This opportunity provides artistic growth and lots of fun, but also requires a commitment in time and energy. We would strongly encourage you to talk with anyone currently on the worship team. You can reach our current team co-leads Tobey, Sydney, and Brayden at tobeykrip@comcast/net morrissydney03@gmail.com, and brayden.seims@gmail.com.
