With the rapid development of musical expressions of today's culture, new church starts, and the changing culture, it begs the question, "Are choirs needed?" The purpose of this paper is to show through biblical, historical and cultural evidence that the church choir is relevant in the 21st century American Church.
The research will offer direction, guidance and insight for those who are considering beginning a church choir; maintaining a church choir or considering discontinuing the church choir. The research will show that the choir is more than a method of ministry; the choir is a musical expression to God, an intricate part of worship, and foundational to corporate worship in principle.
