David Loftis, Minister of Worship

Welcome to Pleasant Garden Worship Ministries!

Thanks for stopping by our site.  Our vision statement summarizes our desire in ministry:

"Taking the church to the cross . . . taking the cross to the world."

We seek to honor the Lord in our corporate worship times by drawing attention to Him, and in turn directing people toward His heart.  God wants nothing less from you than total transformation – which leads to an abundant life lived completely as we serve Him together.  We also are convinced that when our hearts are tuned to worshipping Him, we will "proclaim His glory among the nations." 

Here are a few ways we strive to reach this goal:


Rather than debate the styles of worship, at Pleasant Garden we celebrate the diversity of the Body of Christ, recognizing that God has children all over the planet worshipping in a variety of ways.  For our culture there are a few distinct ways we love to worship our God, and our services represent those styles.

 8:15 – Heritage of Faith –Accompanied by piano & organ with our Sanctuary Singers leading in worship, this traditional service honors the heritage given us by centuries of psalms, hymns and spiritual songs.

 9:30 – Modern Worship – This service features a live Praise Band and uses a combination of cutting edge worship songs given to the church in the last decade to focus our families on the new sounds of praise.

 11:00 –Modern Blended Worship This service ties together the excitement of contemporary worship with some of the sounds of the past. 

 6:00 – Sunday Nights At PGBC – Sunday nights bring a variety of stylings before our people, from Southern Gospel to contemporary; local to international.   

Plug into Worship – Come Serve with Us!

Sanctuary Singers – Our 8:15 Traditional Choir meets on Tuesday Mornings and Wednesday evenings to rehearse, then ministers every Sunday at 8:15, and on the 2nd & 4th Sundays at 11:00am.


Front Line – Our 9:30 choir has a vision to be a multi-cultural intergenerational community of worship leaders who guide the church into unified praise to God.  The choir meets for fun-filled family times of fellowship and discipleship called rehearsals on Sundays and Wednesday, and sings the 1st & 3rd Sundays at 9:30 & 11:00 a.m.


Praise Band – Our 9:30 & 11:00 praise bands lead our modern worship services and are made up of servants called to excellence in God honoring contemporary praise.  Positions are available by audition. 


Student Praise Bands – Our Student Worship Bands are graded – a Middle School group that practices Wednesdays and our High School bands that rehearse on Sundays.  These groups play for student events and rotate into the Sunday schedule at least quarterly.  In addition we offer a Summer Band Camp for new and growing students, for rising 5th – 10th graders. 


VISUAL PRAISE TEAM God is a God of beauty, so maintaining the majesty of praising Him through a well designed worship space takes creativity and energy.  Our Visual Praise team does just that.  Far more than a "flowers" committee, this team takes on projects that seasonally point our hearts heavenward as we seek to use all our senses to bring praise to God.  Interested in serving?  Contact Paulette Davis (pdavis@pgbc.com) for more information.


FIRST IMPRESSIONS TEAMAs people choose to attend our church, we want their experience to be as delightful as possible.  The vision of our First Impressions team is to create a good experience "from the parking lot to the pew" and beyond.  Making guests comfortable and welcome is a priority to us at PGBC, and this team seeks to make that a reality.  Interested in joining us?  Contact Roger Bailey (rbailey@pgbc.com) or Larry Hoyle (lhoyle@pgbc.com) for more information.
