Jaclyn Filancia- Worship Pastor
As a child and teen, Jaclyn was always drawn to music, specifically Worship.
At the young age of 9 she become involved in any way she could find, turned and organizing the sheet music and overheads for services, attending practices, cleaning and setup, etc.
In her teenage years, she kept busy with work, attending Bible School and being a Youth Leader in Juneau, Alaska-- where she met her now husband, Joe who became the Youth Interim Pastor. She could always 'find' God in worship, she recalls, no matter what was going on in her life and heart.
It wasn't long before she was asked to join the Worship Team, officially, even though she had no 'performance bone' in her body and no desire to lead or be on the stage.
She was a rather shy backup singer for 5 years, before God directed her and her [guitar learning] husband to be Youth Pastors in Plains, MT at 21 years old. It was there she cut her teeth in Worship Leading and building a worship team from the ground up. They have since moved and ministered with a church plant in Texas, Washington and now Idaho.
Over the past 25 years, she and Joe have worked and led as a team in this realm of ministry and have
co-labored with and managed multiple teams- ranging anywhere from 2 - 22 members of both
Youth and Adults rise, be released and start over again.
It has been their honor and privilege to build and lead the precious team here at The River Church since 2011. Their growing passion for worship began way back in the Vineyard Worship days, and currently includes such styles as: Bethel Worship Music, Elevation, Maverick City, Housefires, United Pursuit,
Jesus Culture, Brian & Katie Torwalt, Jonathan & Melissa Helser, Mosaic, Kari Jobe, and Hillsong.
What we do at The River
As a worship team here at The River Church, led by our Worship Pastor, Jaclyn Filancia-
We are passionate about His presence and spending daily personal time in prayer,
worship and the Word, not just on a stage.
We have weekly practices and sound checks, quarterly Connects, yearly Worship Retreats and Reviews. We take this ministry and privilege very seriously and desire nothing more than to be found in His presence.
We want TRC Worship Team to be a place where worship leaders, backup singers, musicians, sound team & media members, flaggers and prophetic artists and all those associated with the worship arts can build relationships and develop
a team-oriented mentality.
Through relationships, consistent teaching from God’s word, sensitivity to each other and the Holy Spirit, submission to pastoral leadership and church vision, communication, connection and ministering together,
we hope that team members can share experiences, songs, prayer requests, devotionals, testimonies and lessons learned. We will not only grow together as a team, but as Christians and in our personal relationship with Jesus.
We aim to further equip up and coming worship leaders and team members (Present leaders as well as the next generation) through providing opportunities for growth, giving direction and feedback, being organized as well as properly training you.
Along with these tools (providing new ones and sharpening/developing the ones you already have) we love to help you fully understand and experience the Heart of Worship! We set a HIGH standard and Example—and commit to continue living it!
Let’s dive DEEPER into this intimate realm of Worship and ministry, sharpen ourselves and see growth both musically AND spiritually through our experiences together!
Let’s change our world for Jesus ~ May Our Passion Bring You Fame, Lord!
