Faith United Methodist Church (www.faithum.com) in Fort Myers, Florida has an opening for the Director of Traditional Worship (a part-time position). Faith Church is a thriving congregation with two worship services, one traditional and the other contemporary. We have a very seasonal congregation. In the “off season” months (May-September), our attendance on a typical Sunday is around 300 to 350 between both services. However, in the “in season” months (October-April) attendance soars to 750 on average to 1,000 people or more at season’s peak.
The position is responsible for directing our choir, supervising an organist/hand bell choir director, and a pianist. Also, this person will supervise an audio technician, and a graphics & communication technician. This person will be required to work alongside the Director of Contemporary Worship. She/he will work with our Worship Planning Team on a weekly basis as we review previous worship services, and plan for the future as we seek to honor the Lord and lead our congregation in worship.
A bachelor’s degree in music, worship studies or related field, is preferred. Also, at least two years of worship leading experience and demonstrated leadership and communication skills are required. Theological education and familiarity with the United Methodist Church are both highly regarded.
Send a resume to Rev. Dennis Lewis at firstname.lastname@example.org. If possible, please send video footage of your worship leading skills via link to YouTube or other means via the web. All qualifying materials will be presented to a search committee.
