About us: We are an authentic group of people whose mission is to connect to God, others, and the world. In the Modern Service we enjoy a variety of current Christian music and some new takes on old classics. We worship from the heart and will expect you to do the same.
About you: You are a committed Christian who is spiritually mature, energetic, passionate about worship arts and service-minded. You know that leading worship is about helping us to connect with God – not a concert. You are technically trained, leadership-focused, and desire to work with a fun, dedicated, and experienced team.
Objective: To provide leadership to the Modern Worship Team. Candidate must have integrity and a heart for worship, and understand the heart of volunteers. Candidate will be expected to develop the existing team bringing out our own modern vibe and a continuous striving for excellence. In addition to outstanding skills as a musician (preferably guitar) and singer, we are looking for someone who has a strong knowledge of the theology of worship, music theory and an interest in the current trends in contemporary worship.
Position Description: Be the “producer” of the modern Sunday morning Modern worship service. The Pastor is the “director” regarding setting the theme and overall direction; the Worship Leader oversees most of the other service elements. You will be scheduling/managing the volunteers, selecting the music, directing the musicians, vocalists and technical teams.
Hours: 10 hours per week, which includes rehearsal, warm-up, and the 9:45am Sunday service. You will be allowed to work the rest of your hours remotely (selecting songs, scheduling volunteers, etc.)
Salary: based on experience, contract (1099) position for 10 hours per week, with the opportunity for future growth
How to Apply: Submit resume and cover letter to Pastor Emily Hotho at firstname.lastname@example.org by no later than July 14. Interviews will be scheduled in late July, with a target start date of Sunday, August 13.
