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.

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.)
