Hunter00, First of all, everyone really likes you and relies on you because drummers(especially good ones) are hard to come by, and if you are faithful with your attendance and do a good job, they will hold on to you for as long as possible. I have been on both sides of the spectrum, the drummer, and the Pastor, and for a few years I was both at the same time. As a Pastor, I know exactly what it is like to need new equipment but not have the money for it, or have other things that are a bigger priority than new drum equipment, and as a drummer, I know what it is like to tell someone that new cymbals or drum heads are needed and have them look back at me with a look of amusement on their faces. For a drummer, there is nothing more important than keeping your drums in top shape, but unfortunately, sometimes people who are not drummers don’t understand how important maintaining drums is, so they neglect the drums, but sometimes, there really isn’t any money in the budget, so new equipment has to wait, and the drums are usually the last things on the list of things to upgrade. I agree with Andy, a good drummer will sound good on anything. I also like what bigbeat said, take what you can get and be patient, use what you have and play it with excellence. And make sure to take care of your(or the churches) gear so that it lasts as long as possible.
