WorshipPlus equips worship leaders and volunteers. We provide one-on-one assessment and engage with Pastoral leadership team first, following with the Worship leader, and then volunteers. We’re committed to discerning the need and applying “best practices” to elevate the spiritual and emotional health of the worship experience.


Worship Team & Discipleship

WorshipPlus establishes a clear pathway of spiritual growth for those who “lead” worship each week. We help leaders develop a plan to ensure each member of ministry is a fully-maturing disciple of Christ and worshipper in his/her daily life and in corporate worship.

Rev. Timothy J. Mercaldo 

Founder & Director

Rev. Timothy J. Mercaldo has been an ordained Christian minister for the past thirty-four years. Twenty-nine of those years have been spent specifically in worship ministry. Tim has had the privilege of ministering in the American evangelical context of every facet indigenous to the local church. From early childhood, music was a passion of Tim’s that led to singing and playing piano with both formal and informal training. Worship was always front and center in his personal life and found its expression vocally with self-accompaniment. It was no surprise that after graduating with a degree in Theology/Greek, Worship and Music ministry was the centerpiece of Tim’s early years in the local church. During his years of full-time ministry, there was a constant focus on how to reach the “the lost” in the church’s community. Tim founded a 501(c)(3) which existed to inspire and impact the Greater New York area through arts, sports and educational programs, and events. Since the early 1980’s, Tim has produced holiday productions and outreach concerts, as well as performed at various institutions and secular events within communities—both nationally and internationally. Whether hands-on or helping to find the “right fit” for ministry personnel, Tim is ultimately passionate to see the local church flourish and further the Kingdom of God.



“The ‘services’ Rev. Timothy Mercaldo offers are unique, at least in terms of what I've seen over the years--and greatly needed in so many churches

and events.  In fact, the name of the ministry, ‘Worship Plus,’ is perfect because Tim always seems to bring a PLUS to the worship experience when he leads. I know this is the work of the Spirit through him.”

— David Bryant, Founder & Director of Proclaim HOPE! & Concerts of Prayer


“Thank you, Rev. Timothy Mercaldo for coaching and building the confidence of our worship team. Your strategic planning, practical insight, and real-life experiences as a Worship Coach elevated our Sunday experience to unimaginable heights. Worship is more than 'singing' songs, it’s connecting people to God. Without your strategic leadership, we simply would not have been able to raise the level of intimate worship."

— Martin J. Tursi, Executive Pastor (former) Cornerstone Christian Church, Wyckoff, NJ
