Worship Ministries

Our Vision, Mission & Mandate.

“Rise and Shine Ministries, New Zealand; a chosen room in the house of Our Lord Jesus Christ.”

The model of Rise and Shine Ministries is received through revelation knowledge and through the study and understanding of Kingdom principles.

One House, Different Rooms, Shared Roof, Rock Foundation

The Vision

“A house with many essential rooms / Mansions” John14 1:4

The Vision is best illustrated as “ One House, Different Rooms, Shared Roof, rock Foundation” ( John 14 1:2) built on eight foundational blocks of Life, Vitality, Obedience, Nurture, Truth, Love, Gratitude & Integrity; rooted in The Word of God and held up by His four divine pillars of Truth, Purity, Faith and Righteousness. as members and residents of this greater mansion of God, We as siblings in Christ are covered by Salvation under His roof of Love and His canopy of Grace; a living as body operating under the direction of our Lord, Jesus Christ as revealed to us in His written word and through His Holy Spirit.

 (1 Corinthian 12: 18-21)  But in fact God has placed the parts in the body, every one of them, just as he wanted them to be.  If they were all one part, where would the body be?  As it is, there are many parts, but one body.  The eye cannot say to the hand, “I don’t need you!” And the head cannot say to the feet, “I don’t need you!”  

Through the revealed and living word of Jesus Christ, we understand that each individual members of His body is highly valued, needed and wholly essential for the and optimal function divine operation of the body. 

(John 14 1-4 ) Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there you may be also. And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know.

Guidelines and Requirements


It is very important for those who participate in the Worship Team to feel that they are “called and anointed” to the ministry of worship.

We believe in the operation of the Gifts of the Holy Spirit in the order of Service at restoration life.

Life Style

Participants must be born-again believers of Christ, and their lifestyle must resemble that of a born-again Christian.

Participants must be worshipers on and off the platform. Anyone who has difficulty worshiping at home or in the congregation is not ready to be a on the platform leading others in worship.

Talents and Skills

Although we recognize the importance of a pure heart, the musician and vocalists also need to have enough skill so that they can follow the leading of the Holy Spirit.

Musicians and vocalists should have open hearts to receive advice, correction, training, and should be committed to becoming proficiently skilled at their ministry.

“Kenaniah the head Levite was in charge of the singing; that was his responsibility because he was skilful at it”. (1 Chronicles 15:22)

One does not need to be a professional musician to worship the Lord, but God honours the discipline of additional practice and preparation. “Failing to prepare is preparing for failure.”


 Worship Team members should be actively involved at restoration life and dedicated to restoration life’s vision and to the leadership of its pastors and other leaders.

This commitment includes their prayers, regular attendance, and tithes/offerings and involvement in a Life Group.

Those who commit to serving on the Worship Team are asked to commit to weekly rehearsals and they are expected to do their best to make sure other commitments do not interfere with their ability to serve on the Worship Team on a weekly basis.

Each Team member is required to attend weekly practices scheduled every Saturday beginning at 9:am unless otherwise noted.

Practice “always” begins with prayer from 8:45am– 9:00 am and is a vital component in becoming a spiritually strong and united team.

Because we value the importance of family, prospective Worship Team members should not join the team without the full support of their family.

Attendances and Punctuality

Attendance and punctuality are very important factors for being a member of the Worship Team.

Weekly rehearsals are required, and members should arrive ready to work on the designated material.

Poor attendance and showing up late for rehearsals demonstrate a lack of discipline and respect for the Lord’s ministry.

Those who are unable to attend rehearsals should not expect to participate in the Worship Team the following Sunday unless prior arrangements with the worship pastor have been made.


As leaders, members must dress properly.

Although we recognize that God does not judge us by outward appearance (1 Samuel 16:7), we also realize that proper attire adds a level of excellence to the worship experience.

Consequently, members are encouraged to be neat, clean, and appropriately dressed for all services.

Inappropriate dress for regular worship services includes T-shirts, old jeans, sweats, short skirts, etc. “All the Levites who were musicians . . . stood on the east side of the altar, dressed in fine linens . . . “. (2 Chronicles 5:12)

New Applicants and Waiting Periods

We constantly seek to expand our Worship team.

Anyone interested in serving is encouraged to set up an appointment with the worship pastor (Roxanne Vargas) to discuss the guidelines and expectations presented in this manual.

The prospective Worship team member will also have a brief and informal audition at this time.

New applicants to the Worship Team will be required to attend several rehearsals before “taking the platform.

Additional reading may also be required, at the discretion of the church leadership.

Schedule Conflicts, Etc.

If at any time, a member (including visual equipment operators, sound engineers, etc.) cannot attend a service, rehearsal, etc. they must find their own replacement and notify the worship pastor in advance if at all possible so that proper adjustments can be made.

Sound Engineers, Visual Equipment Operators, Etc.

Sound engineers and visual equipment operators are important members of the worship ministry.

Visual equipment operators are asked to arrive early so they can operate the slides while the Worship Team rehearses.

These members should be attentive at all times during the service and ready to make changes “on the fly” where necessary.

The sound engineers are also asked to arrive early and help the Worship Team as much as possible.

Sound engineers must be alert and responsive, especially during the worship, and should be ready to adjust quickly.

It is important to state that we intend for the information in this manual to serve as a guideline, but we realize that exceptions will occur.

These exceptions will be determined by the leadership of restoration life.

It is also important to state that these guidelines apply to those who participate in the Worship Ministry on a regular basis, not those who participate in special programs, special music, etc.

Lastly, open communication is of vital importance.

If at any time a team member is confused, discouraged, or unhappy with the way things may be happening at a given time, they are encouraged to speak with the worship pastor, senior pastor, or other leadership.

The only way to deal with hurt feelings, resentment, confusion, etc. is to bring it out into the open so that the Lord can help us work through it as a team.

Schedule: Saturday Morning Practice: 8:30am to when we are done.

Sunday Services – 10:30 a.m. – Arrive by 9:00 a.m. for prayer rehearsal

Special Services such as Revivals, Annual Harvesters Conference, etc.

Acceptance of Guidelines

You are expected to execute and adhere to the Restoration Life Christian Church Praise & Worship Team Guidelines.
I / We_____understand, accept, and agree with the guidelines and disciplinary actions.

How A Christian Coach /Mentor Can Help You

Rise and Shine Christian Mentorship offers a Spiritual Strengthening & development Coaching Services.

Why Rise N’ Shine Christian mentorship?

The Rise and Shine Way is about waking up and rising above; a “growing into” the wisdom so that we can Rise and Shine for The Glory of God by knowing who we really are in Christ Jesus,  It is about understanding the Truth;   In “rising and shining” you are raising the bar.

Cyrus Leonard Rose is an agent of change, working with men, women, and youth in strengthening, renewing and reclaiming your identity in Christ. Knowing who you truly are and all that you were born to be makes all the difference.

How A Rise N’ Shine Coach & Mentor Can Help You?

Seeking out change is an act of courage in itself. Deep down we may at times feel our capacity for greatness but those old habits or patterns we have outgrown tend to repeatedly pull us back into the very space we are trying to escape. Often, we add to this conundrum by surrounding ourselves with people who keep us trapped.

Whenever you are sensing the outward manifestation of your “personhood” is not lining up with your inner core, it is a sign that change is called for. We are most aware of this when we experience setbacks with our goals, the loss of a job or the end of a relationship. This is where Rise and Shine Mentorship can offer practical, guidance in enabling the shift in perspective our situation calls for.

Rise N’ Shine Music

Inspired Song writing and Music Creations

Creating Anointed Songs of Worship & Praise 

MP3 Downloads, Music Licensing & Distributing

So, it is hard to believe that it has been 17 years since I wrote these songs. 

As I listened carefully to the words again today, I smiled. You can tell I still had some distance to travel. I had not yet had much of The Logos Word poured into me as yet (meaning I was not reading the Bible then) but I always believed in Jesus.  I believed in His Truth (although I did not know enough of it) and I believed in His unconditional Love.  The words show me that Jesus was never far from me. In fact, I can vividly remember writing this one specifically for Him. Christ Is My Strength.

I hope you enjoy it. God Bless You,

Cyrus Leonard Rose

We are currently recording some new songs of Praise & Worship for The Lord.

I am so excited to be able to share them with you soon please keep listing and share with your friends and families.
Stay tuned.


Transforming Your Walk with Love & Tough Talks.  

So much of how we think, feel and act is in direct resistance and opposition to the diving Plan for our life.  In Jeremiah 1:5, God says, “Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou calmest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations”.

God knows us so well because He created us, and He deposited into us gifts that are to be used for a very unique and special purpose. By seeking out what the Lord planned for us, we will be embarking on path of Love, Joy and Truth.

You must property position us to receive the blessings that God has stored up for you. You must learn to stop resisting and simply go with the His divine flow; in the direction of Truth that is Christ Jesus. Most of us are not even aware of the reason and the resistance that we exert so you cannot see therefore how it can be ultimately causing unnecessary pain and suffering. In this tough talk I will show you so you can immediately begin to live consciously and to open yourself up to receive all that you have ever dreamed. Stop paddling upstream. Let go and yield to the loving dictates of the Lord by way of The Holy Spirit. Step onto the path that has been pre-paved for you. This hardest work has already been done. In this Tough Talk Lesson, I show you how to step on to this path. I am excited to introduce you too.

Reclaim Your Power

Enough is Enough! It’s time for you to take back what is rightly yours and stop making Personal Power Donations. This Tough Talk teaches you how to fight back. It is about spiritual warfare and in order to win this battle. Ephesians 6:12 say for we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. You are going to have to be armed with right tools in order to Recover and Restore all that was taken from you.

It’s Your Call - You Decide

I am not pulling any punches with this Talk. I give it to you straight. I give it to you real. Nothing ever seems to go right in your life.? Listen very carefully…There is NOONE to blame except YOU. But WAIT…That the Good News!  Sometimes we just need to hear the hard-core truth for real change to happen. Why can’t you get ahead? I am about to tell you why and whip you into some serious shape with this Tough Talk.

There Is Only One God

There is a saying, A Rose by any other name would smell just as sweet.  This may be true as it relates to flowers. However, when we are talking about God, this is just not the case. Forget the New age and every other Agenda, Scheme and plan of the anti-Christ that has been strategically designed to lead you as far away from the truth as possible, away from Jesus Christ.

 The Bible tells shows us that names are very important. It also shows us that the name of Jesus is more powerful than all other names. Why is this? It is because Jesus Christ is The Way, The Truth and The Life. He overcame this world by dying a blameless man, without blemish. This pure and divine man made the ultimate willing sacrifice by taking on our sins and dying so that His sheep would not have to perish. He did this in love; only to be resurrected and to reign as King of Kings and Lord of Lords. He made a Way for us. That is right. He made a way.    

This is the Tough talk that Will Save Your life.

Christ is King, Lord and Savior of The World.
