A typical pentecostal church choir it's one of the most interesting place to be in church. There, you see all manners of people with different character in all shapes and sizes. In this post, we will be looking at these categories of persons found in the choir department.

1.The Instrumentalists 
There is this set of guys they call "instrumentalists" lol. Those ones? If they ever come for rehearsals on time, then something is wrong. They are always late, and in most cases the choir director can't sanction them.

2. Choir Director.
The choir director always have a set of favorite singers in the choir and someone whom he/she always give the lead role in a song. And some people in the choir will always 'beef' that person, especially those who can't sing well.

3. Committed Choirister
In some cases, the most committed set of people in the choir are those who can't sing, and you just can't drive them away. They are very punctual and committed, both in attendance and spoiling of songs lol 😀.

4.The Proud Choirister 
In some cases, the singers with very high level of pride are in soprano, while the most stubborn ones are in the alto category. They dont take correction because they believe no one sings better than them and most times the choir can't do without them.

Read: The type of brethren you are likely to see in a pentecostal church 

In every choir, there must be a certain brother and sister who usually do some exclusive rehearsals in the closet. When you look at those ones very well, they are the one that has chosen music as a career.

6. Choir Slayers  
These ones are always on point. Their uniforms are always well tailored and ironed and they most times match it with a 6inches silehtto. They are beautiful and wear original human hair. Most of these who are mostly female actually joined the choir either because they love the uniform or they believe that's where their husband will find them, or they just want to stand on the microphone let the church see them.

7. Lazy Choiristers 
These chioristers at some point during rehearsals will behave as if they are so tired and they want the director to close, but immediately the director stops teaching songs everybody starts 'gisting'.

8. The Off-Singers 
There is always a "minor factor" in the choir: a certain choirister who specialises in spoiling songs.  The only  way to spot this person is to ask them to sing one after the other. If the person is a tenor singer and he's a smart guy, he'll want to go out and ease himself that very time.

9. The Sound Regulators 
They are also called sound engineer but because am not happy with them, will call them regulators lol 😀.(i pray they dont read this post).
These people will give good sound during rehearsals especially if it is a concert rehearsals but on the concern or service day, sound is always bad and you see them running around the whole auditorum. They are ogas of their own. Nobody corrects or sanction them.

10. The Only Ones Standing
These set of people are mostly the instrumentalists. How they manage to withstand the anointing, i can't understand because even if the whole church falls under anointing, the "instrumentalists" and camera men never falls.
They are the ones that standeth firm on the solid rock. They can never fall under anointing. E" no fit happen". Still trying to unravel that mystery.

In all of these, God is gracious, and Jesus won't stop loving chioristers. Did i miss out anything? Please feel free to contribute in the comment section and dont forget to share this post using the social media button below.


  1. Pastor Gloria, you really nail this. I ... think you must be a Choir mistress bcos being a choirister or doing research couldn't have given you such an experienced write up.

  2. Great Post, you nailed it. I know you would have been in choir for years to do these analysis.
