The worship ministry has the ability to disciple and evangelize to people within the congregation and to members of the ensembles. This study focused on the instrumental ensembles of two congregations to analyze the impact they had on the members of these ensembles and the congregations in which they serve. Surveys were sent via email to the members of the instrumental ensembles and the members of the congregations. Seventy-six people participated in the survey with twenty-one of those participants being instrumentalists and fifty-five people being members of the congregation. Survey questions contained general questions about the instrumental ensembles and specific questions about discipleship and evangelism. Once the surveys were returned, it was determined that the instrumental ensembles did have an impact on discipleship and evangelism but the congregation experienced this impact more than the instrumentalists in these congregations.
