WorshipPlus is a ministry of Artists and Christian
Testimony, International Inc.
WorshipPlus is committed to
equipping local churches and
Christian organizations to think
creatively, applying "best
practices" to their worship
experiences and outreach events
through the Creative Arts.
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.
Worship Team Discipleship
WorshipPlus provides guidance for interim and substitute music leaders. Rev. Timothy J. Mercaldo, Founder and Director, with over 35 years of Evangelical ministry experience, is available for leading worship with the existing team or solo. In addition, with over 20 years of preaching experience, he is available for pulpit supply.
WorshipPlus is particularly equipped to help churches strategize and develop “arts outreaches” designed to resonate with and “bridge the Gospel” to the surrounding community.
WP prioritizes Biblically-centered and Spirit-empowered teaching in the Local Church. Rev. Mercaldo guides Worship Teams in understanding their unique role in leading and transforming their congregation, with an emphasis on “The Audiences of Worship”
Online & Onsite Seminars
Worship and music ministry concerts are available for a variety of church events including Sunday mornings (such as celebration banquets and fundraisers), and Holiday concerts (Christmas, Easter, and Valentines).
"Rev. Tim Mercaldo was meticulous in his observation, teaching, and consultation with our worship team. He went above and beyond, attending practices and services, and meeting with each member of the team. Most importantly, he was a catalyst in helping our worship leaders seek the Lord wholeheartedly and worship in spirit and in truth each Sunday."
— Tom Campisi, Elder at Cornerstone Christian Church, Wycoff, NJ & Editor of The Tri-State Voice
“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. Your personalized training and team assessment was a game changer, as well as your ability to identify and resolve barriers to growth is amazing. Probably even more than that, is your proficiency to identify leaders, recommend worship flow and team dynamics was necessary to facilitate creativity and team health.”
— Martin J. Tursi, Executive Pastor Cornerstone Christian Church, Wycoff, NJ
REV. TIMOTHY J. MERCALDO
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.
