The Sanctuary Orchestra leads Pioneer Drive in morning worship each week at both the 9:00 and 10:30 a.m. worship services. The orchestra is comprised of musicians who use their talents and gifts to glorify God. Each year they play in each presentation of the Easter Pageant and during the holiday season, the group presents a Christmas Concert with the Sanctuary Choir. Every other year, the orchestra presents an all-instrumental worship service. Members of this group are active all year playing solos and ensembles in our services. Pioneer Drive Associate Minister of Music, Jasen Brown leads the orchestra, which rehearses Wednesday evenings from 6-7 p.m. in the Sanctuary.
High School Choir
This 9-12th grade choir is an integral part of the music ministry at Pioneer Drive. Besides periodically singing in the Sunday evening services, the choir works each year toward a summer mission tour, which in the past has taken the Word of God to churches and communities in Seattle, Florida, California, Louisiana, Chicago and Nashville. Last year's tour was to Miama, Florida where PDBC high school students helped with Habitat for Humanity and gave concerts in the area. This year the choir went to Orange County, California where they continued to spread God's word through music and missions. To help offset the cost of the tour, the choir also sponsors "The World's Largest Garage Sale" each spring, and then raises even more money with the annual auction at the church. Pioneer Drive minister of music Danny Barefield directs the choir, which rehearses each Sunday from 4:30-6 p.m.
Middle School Choir
This 6-8 grade choir sings periodically in services at Pioneer Drive and each year takes a mission tour to a different city in Texas. They sing contemporary songs have a lot of fun learning how to and leading in worship. Pioneer Drive Associate Minister of Music, Jasen Brown directs the choir and they meet on Sunday afternoons from 4:30-5:30 p.m. in room 111.
