The difference between an exciting church service and a mediocre one most often relies upon the skill of the house choir. Their hymns vocalise the overwhelming faith shared by a tight congregation, but without a competent Choir President, their pieces would fall apart. Oftentimes, churches will elect officers to make sure the choir delivers their hymns as pure as they possibly can.

Who Is the Right Fit for the Job?

A choir president should be as devoted as one can possibly be to the church. Optimally, they are long-standing and respected members within the church's community who have served faithfully as a member of the choir for some time. Their mission is to give the choir leadership and direction.

Their Role

A Choir President is first and foremost a skilled communicator. His purpose is to keep the choir involved with their specific branch of Christianity's faith-wide events, collaborate with the Church Organist on pieces to be performed, and to pass the torch to the next Choir President.

Responsibilities

The Choir President must contact any member of their choir who has missed a practice or a worship event. The Choir President also oversees all administrative affairs related to the choir, and has the ability to delegate responsibilities to members within the choir.
