Worship Leader - Part Time
Hillsborough United Methodist Church (HUMC) is preparing to enter its second century of Christian disciple-making ministry in March of 2020. This congregation is a blend of age ranges and denominational backgrounds, mostly United Methodists around age 60, with several groups of younger and older members. The staff consists of an appointed pastor, an assistant pastor, part-time office administrator, and several unpaid personnel, including an average of 5 active musicians that collaborate to serve in the weekly music ministry and an occasional choir of an average of 10 singers and a former choir director.
Hillsborough United Methodist Church (HUMC) is praying for a person who is called to serve Christ in a collaborative leadership position with a pastor and church leadership team. This position will be charged with 1) making disciples through the ministry of music, beginning with prayerful service among the lay ministers of music and worship in the congregation; 2) planning a flexible schedule of music up to a year ahead of schedule in collaboration with musicians and the pastor; and 3) inviting the congregation and community into vibrant worship through a blend of traditional and contemporary music. The ideal candidate will have professional music experience as an educator and song leader. All applicants with a heart for worship, God-given gifts for music, experience and skills in leading church music programs will be at great advantage.
