Special Ministry Guest
I am celebrating 28 years of full time ministry! God has allowed me to minister as a worship leader, a speaker, a composer and recording artist. He has also given me a desire to take the Word of God into closed nations in my missions work.
I was blessed to be a Music Pastor for over 5 years, experienced tremendous growth within my choir and band, growing from 120 to 220 and the church from 2,000 to 4,000. You can read my full bio here.
In my prior role as Music Pastor, I had the responsibility of many events, some were arranging town hall meetings to multi-day, full production events.
The success of the event fell on the talent and ministry that was communicated to the people. If they hit their mark, it was a great event; and people responded! However if they flopped then there went the event.
Like you, I would spend hours looking for talented communicators and singers that would be a good fit for the event. My hope is that this will give a clear view of SDM (Sarah DeLane Ministries) so you can make the most informed decision as possible.
Thank you for considering me for you next event. I am deeply honored!
Having traveled with Dr. Nora Lam (China Cry), Nancy Harmon and The Bill Gaither Homecoming Tour, I have had the opportunity to share my music and mission with more than a million people.
In most cases, SDM will pay the travel expense within a 10 hour driving radius from Nashville TN. SDM would ask for a love offering to be received, an appeal for monthly support for SDM Missions, and help with lodging while at your church. (If outside the 10 hour driving radius, I would ask for help with the travel.)
If your church/organization is more comfortable with a budgeted set fee, please send me the best way to communicate with you so we can come up with the best solution for the church and for SDM.
What You Can Expect
1. You can expect to receive a prompt return phone call.
2. You can expect a conversation with me that will allow you to express your vision for the event.
This could mean…
*3 song package, before you preach,
*A full service of singing and testimony; where I minister in song and missions testimony. The stories from the underground house-churches are life-changing and faith-building; when mixed with the Word of God, these services have proven to be a fruitful!
*Or I can lead worship for the event.
3. You can expect to see an announcement about your event on my blog and social media channels.
4. You can expect, what ever route we go, I will work with you to bring your desired result. I will be there to serve!
TRAINING & MINISTRY TO YOUR CHURCH MUSIC DEPARTMENT
On a day determined before I minister at your church, I would like present a Mini-Music Seminar with Mega-Results for your Praise and Worship Department. In the Seminar, the band and vocal team would learn one (1) new song.
The teaching would be customized for your church which would cover topics like:
- What Are the Priorities of Worship & How You Can Bring Support to Your Pastor
- How to build a Music Department
- Blending Vocals
- Blending your band
- What Every Choir-Member Should Know to Be Effective in Music Ministry
- How to include creative media, music and skits around Pastors sermon
- How to conduct effective tryouts
- How to involve and mentor your youth
- Going beyond your walls — Taking your church Praise and Worship Band to the community.
The following Sunday we would introduce the new song to the congregation and I would be available to minister in your weekend service.
Here is a sample of Sarah DeLane leading worship for Cornerstone Church. It starts with a prayer for their 6am Friday informal-prayer meetings.
