In the Worship Purpose area, we seek to encourage individual relationship development with God by helping to usher individuals into the transforming presence of God through communal worship meetings. The Worship Purpose is a spiritually-based, administrative umbrella for all Worship ministries. Worship represents the front line of Turner Chapel. The Worship Purpose seeks to facilitate the corporate worship aspect that encourages individual relationships with God. “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.” Matthew 22:37-40
